(Bowman Gray Stadium, Winston-Salem, NC) A little luck helped Jason Myers get close to the front – but it was skill and a strong car that helped him to hang on and win the Renegade 100 on Saturday at Bowman Gray Stadium.
            Just like all 100-lappers for the Bill Plemmons RV World Modifies Series, the starting lineup for the Renegade 100 was determined by random draw. Jason Myers of Walnut Cove drew the outside pole in a stroke of good luck, with Lee Jeffreys of Wallburg drawing the pole. And to add to the mix, the Double-File “Choice” Restart would be in effect.
            Jeffreys grabbed the lead as the green flag waved but quickly had to defend his position again when a caution on the second lap brought out the double-file restart cone. As Jeffreys and Myers played mind-games with each other on the starting line, the #77 of Jeffreys was again able to claim the top spot.
            A double-file restart a few laps later gave Myers another chance to take to the outside. This time, the #4 car of Myers ended up winning the drag race into turn one. “I think he spun the tires on the restart and gave me just enough to get in front of him getting into one,” said Myers.
            But getting to the front was the easy part. Now, Myers had to defend his lead against Reigning Champion Tim Brown of Cana, VA for five double-file restarts. For restart after restart, the two competitors battled fiercely - side-by-side for laps at a time - while the crowd was on the edge of their seats.
            Myers performed flawlessly to maintain the lead each time. “Tim was tough. He gave me a heck of a run on the outside there,” said Myers. “All it took was one slip from Tim for me to get inside there to hold the position.”
            “Our last five or six weeks here have been pretty bad,” said Brown. “I’m pleased tonight just to be able to put it on the truck with the same suspension parts that we came over here with.”
            “Tonight was fun,” said Brown. “I raced him hard. We put a show on for the fans racing side-by-side. It was a good night for us.”
            Chris Fleming of Mount Airy finished behind Brown in third. John Smith of Mount Airy took fourth, with Lee Jeffreys claiming fifth.

            In the Webb Heating & A/C Co. Sportsman Series, Tommy Neal of Walkertown claimed victory in the first 20-lapper of the evening. Ryan Robertson of Winston-Salem and Ryan Nelson of Winston-Salem finished second and third.
            After the Four Seasons Home Improvement “Madhouse Scramble” sent Neal back to 12th for the start of the second race, Tommy “the Tiger” fought forward up to second place. Neal was shoving the bumper of Taylor Branch of Lewisville, desperately trying to take the checkered and pull off the rare accomplishment of winning both races in a double-header. But Branch was able to tame “the Tiger” and stay in the lead. Tommy Neal took second, with Kevin Neal of Walkertown coming in third.
            David Sumner of Trinity slipped ahead of Jody Fritts of Winston-Salem to take the win in the 104.1 WTQR Street Stock Series race on Saturday. Billy Gregg of Winston-Salem took second, with Reggie Doub of Germanton finishing in third.
            In the Time Warner Cable Stadium Stock Series, Adam Baker of Winston-Salem claimed the victory in the first 15-lapper, with Kyle Southern of King winning the second race. The checkered fell just in time for Southern: His car was severely overheating during the last few laps and was spewing out steam as he celebrated in Victory Lane.
