(Bowman Gray Stadium, Winston-Salem, NC) Victory Lane was a sea of black and orange on Saturday after the Myers clan pulled off a clean sweep. Brothers Jason and Burt Myers each claimed victory in the Bill Plemmons RV World Modified Series – the first time ever that two drivers from the Myers dynasty have claimed both ends of a double-header.
            With starting position for the first Modified 25-lap race being decided strictly by qualifying, that one and only time trial lap would be all-important. Jason Myers of Walnut Cove turned the second fastest lap of the night, with Randy Butner of Pfafftown taking the pole.
            Both drivers knew that one of the most crucial points in the race would be the drag race into turn one on the initial start. “We just had a heck of a start,” said Jason Myers, who managed to power ahead of Butner to claim the lead. “He had a lot more motor than I did, so he motored and beat me to the corner,” said Butner.
            The #5 car of Butner then began to give Myers some strong shoves as Butner looked for an opportunity to steal the lead away from Myers. “Butner was strong early in the race,” said Jason Myers. “He probably could’ve turned me. He was bumping me off the corner really letting me know he had a good car.”
            Once the first caution came out around the mid-point in the race, the #4 car of Jason Myers took advantage of the much-needed time to cool off. From then on, Myers pulled away in commanding fashion.
            Jason Myers claimed the checkered. Butner took second, and Junior Miller of Danbury finished in third.

            Meanwhile, brother Burt Myers hadn’t fared as well. Qualifying in a disappointing 10th place, he fought up to an 8th place finish. But his luck would change when little brother Jason plucked number eight for the Four Seasons Home Improvement “Madhouse Scramble” – sending Burt to the pole for the start of the second race.
            Brad Robbins of Winston-Salem started right beside Burt on the outside-row, and Reigning Champion Tim Brown of Cana, VA started right on Myers’ bumper in third.
            As the green flag fell, Myers claimed the lead with Brown moving up to second place. The #83 of Brown gave Myers a few good bumps to the rear, but Myers was able to hold on for the victory.
            Jonathan Brown of Winston-Salem finished in second, with Brian Loftin of Lexington taking third.
            It was an exuberant victory ceremony for Burt as younger brother Jason and the whole family came down to celebrate the twin victories for the Myers family. “When we leave the shop, the goal is for both of us to win. And we accomplished our goal tonight,” said Burt Myers.
            In the Webb Heating & A/C Co. Sportsman Series, Derek Stoltz of Walkertown took the checkered in Saturday’s 60-lapper. The race was one of two Sportsman races that utilize the double-file restart rule - and with eight cautions, there were several chances for outside-row challengers.
            Stoltz fought up from a ninth place start, taking over the lead from Kevin Neal of Walkertown on a double-file restart on lap 25. It was an endurance contest for Stoltz, who was almost in danger of being black-flagged after electrical problems caused his car to smoke at one point in the race.
            Kyle Edwards of King was able to hold on and take second. Ronnie Clifton of Walkertown finished third.
            Kenneth Stimpson claimed victory in the 20-lap race for the 104.1 WTQR Street Stock Series. It was the veteran racer’s first win in over a decade. Matt Cotner of Rural Hall and Allen Henkel of Trinity finished in second and third.
            In the Time Warner Cable Stadium Stock Series, Brandon Brendle of Winston-Salem brought home the win in the first 15-lapper, with Travis Brewer of Germanton taking the checkered in the second 15-lap race.
