Lucky Draw Helps Myers at Bowman Gray
“Madhouse Scramble” helps add to Myers’ points lead.

(Bowman Gray Stadium, Winston-Salem, NC) With a little luck and a little help from family, Burt Myers hangs onto the points lead at Bowman Gray Stadium.
            In the Bill Plemmons RV World Modified Series, Burt Myers of Walnut Cove has had his hands full in recent weeks adapting to the demands of Stadium qualifying. “We’re really struggling to qualify,” said Myers. “It’s the heat, it’s the track condition, it’s going out first – it’s just really hard.”
            With starting position being determined strictly by qualifying order, a disappointing time trial from Myers gave him a 10th place start for the first 25-lapper. Points rival Lee Jeffreys of Wallburg was in the same boat – qualifying 14th.
            Jeffreys flew through the field to get right on the bumper of Myers, finishing 9th while Myers finished 8th. Although Jeffreys didn’t gain any points on Myers, he kept his losses to a minimum.
            The first 25-lap race was won by Burt’s younger brother, Jason Myers. Then in a stroke of good luck, little brother Jason drew an eight as his Four Seasons Home Improvement “Madhouse Scramble” number. The fateful draw sent Burt to the pole for the start of the second race and kept Lee Jeffreys towards the middle of the pack with a ninth place start.
            Burt Myers went on to take the checkered in the second race. Lee Jeffreys fought up to a sixth place finish. Myers maintains the points lead, adding six points to the gap that separates him from Jeffreys. Jeffreys is still within striking distance in second place. Tim Brown of Cana, VA ranks a distant third.
            In the Webb Heating & A/C Co. Sportsman Series, Derek Stoltz of Walkertown claimed victory in last event’s 60-lapper, boosting him from sixth in the points up to fourth. Ryan Robertson of Winston-Salem keeps the top spot on the points ladder by taking seventh.
            Robbie Brewer of Winston-Salem ran into some bad luck on the track, relegating him to an 18th place finish and dropping him down to a third place ranking in the points. Kyle Edwards of King finished second, moving him up to second in the points standings.
            Matt Cotner of Rural Hall took second in the 20-lapper for the 104.1 WTQR Street Stock Series, strengthening his points lead. Billy Gregg of Winston-Salem climbed through the field, spun out, and climbed his way up through the field again to grab a sixth place finish. Gregg maintains his second place spot on the points ladder.
            In the Time Warner Cable Stadium Stock Series, Jimmy Absher of Rural Hall had a bout of bad luck that gave him a 15th place finish. But points contender Wayne Hill of Kernersville encountered some misfortune of his own, finishing 14th. Absher and Hill now tie for the points lead. Their bad luck opens the door for Dale Barneycastle of Mocksville who moves up to only two points behind Absher and Hill.
            The stage is set for excitement this Saturday with the Great Clips 100 One Dollar Ladies’ Night. All females get in to see the racing action for only one dollar – and it will be a Double Points Night. Everything will be put on the line in the Great Clips 100 for the Modifieds, with starting position determined by random draw and the double-file restart rule in effect. There will also be racing for the Sportsman, Street Stock, and Stadium Stock Divisions.
            Gates open at 6:00 for practice, qualifying begins at 7:10, and the first race begins at 8:00 PM – this Saturday night. Ticket prices, directions, and more information can be found online at www.bowmangrayracing.com or by calling (336) 723-1819.
