Burt Myers Steady, Tim Brown Slips at Bowman Gray
Brian Loftin takes over second in the points.

(Bowman Gray Stadium, Winston-Salem, NC) With only two more weeks of competition left in Bowman Gray Stadium’s racing season, every position in every race becomes a heated battle for those last few valuable points.
            Such was the case for Burt Myers of Walnut Cove, who entered the event in the points lead for the Bill Plemmons RV World Modified Series. After qualifying on the pole, Myers started in third when the top six competitors drew for starting positions.
            Ahead of Burt Myers, brother Jason Myers of Walnut Cove was battling with Jonathan Brown of Winston-Salem for the lead. Brown fought back the younger Myers brother for the first three double-file restarts.
            When Jason was caught on the outside row, Burt Myers slipped by him on the inside to claim second – giving Burt the chance to take to the outside in the next restart. The #1 car of Burt Myers motored past Brown to claim the lead.
            Wanting the top spot back, Brown began delivering some strong taps to the rear bumper of Myers. Brown even raced side-by-side with Myers for several laps after a restart, but was unable to complete the pass. A stiff bump from Brown sent Myers spinning out of the lead on lap 35. Myers filed in at the rear of the field while Jonathan Brown stole the lead and went on to win.
            But Myers had points on his mind, fighting forward through the pack to salvage an eighth place finish. The performance kept Myers with a healthy points lead.
            Defending Champion Tim Brown of Cana, VA ran into some misfortune of his own on Saturday. When sheet metal on the front of his car was loosened, NASCAR officials black-flagged the #83 of Tim Brown. Brown, who was running in the top five, failed to heed the black flag, and officials stopped scoring him. The disaster left Brown with a 20th place finish, dropping him from second in the points down to fourth.
            Brian Loftin of Lexington, who finished in fourth, moves up to second in the points – 59 points under Myers. Lee Jeffreys of Wallburg is boosted up to third in the points.
            In the Webb Heating & A/C Co. Sportsman Series, many of the top points contenders ran into bad luck on Saturday. Kyle Edwards of King was involved in a crash during the early parts of the 40-lap race on Saturday. Although he was forced to go to the rear, Edwards was able to fly forward and finish in ninth. Edwards stays the points leader.
            Kyle Edwards’ brother, Barry Edwards of Pinnacle, jumps from fourth in the points up to second on the points ladder after claiming a seventh place finish. Points contender Ryan Robertson of Winston-Salem slips down to third, and Robbie Brewer of Winston-Salem drops to fourth.
            Matt Cotner of Rural Hall added to his points lead in the 104.1 WTQR Street Stock Series. Billy Gregg of Winston-Salem finishes a disappointing 16th, keeping him second in the points but widening the gap that separates him from Cotner.
            In the Time Warner Cable Stadium Stock Series, Jason Keaton of Mocksville took the checkered on Saturday, strengthening his points lead. Dale Barneycastle of Mocksville maintains his second place points standing.
            This Saturday will be the last chance for you to see the best racing in town for the absolute best price – the Winston-Salem Journal brings you the final $1 Ladies’ Night of the season! There will be racing for all four divisions and another exciting Demolition Derby.
           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.
