(Bowman Gray Stadium, Winston-Salem, NC) Tim Brown was reminded what a difference a week can make at Bowman Gray Stadium. After finishing a disappointing 20th last week, Brown recovered to take the checkered flag at the Stadium on Saturday.
            Lee Jeffreys of Wallburg qualified on the pole for the first 25-lapper for the Bill Plemmons RV World Modified Series, with Tim Brown of Cana, VA turning in the second fastest lap. During that all-important initial start, Jeffreys and Brown entered turn one side-by-side. Jeffreys slipped a little out of turn two – giving Brown just enough ground to grab the lead.
            Jeffreys then began to apply the pressure to the bumper of Brown, giving him a few stout taps during the opening laps. “My car was a little free - and I had to back the corner up, and that let Lee get in on me there,” said Brown.
            One particularly strong bump sent Brown sliding – but Jeffreys got the worst of the exchange, turning a little sideways himself. Jeffreys then was forced to fend off the advances from Jonathan Brown of Winston-Salem in third.
            Both Tim Brown and Lee Jeffreys were able to hold on to their position. Tim Brown went on to claim the checkered, his fourth victory of the season. Jeffreys took second with Jonathan Brown finishing in third.

            Brad Robbins of Winston-Salem started on the pole for the second Modified race, with Rookie Austin Pack of Walkertown starting beside him in second. Robbins was worried about how he would perform in the second race, since he had encountered a lot of handling issues in the first race.
            “The night was a fight. This was the biggest fight I’ve had all year. I bet we’ve had 10 shocks and springs on this car. We came over here today – it was terrible. We ran the first race, and the car was just terrible,” said Robbins.
            But after making some major changes in between races, Robbins was pleasantly surprised with how well his car felt during the second race. “The car was actually pretty strong,” said Robbins.
            The #40 car of Robbins coasted at the head of the pack to bring home the win in the second race. Brian Loftin of Lexington climbed his way from fifth up to second, and Terry Gaither finished in third. Rookie Austin Pack claimed fourth – his best finish ever at the Stadium.
            In the Webb Heating & A/C Co. Sportsman Series, Bryant Robertson of Lexington grabbed the lead in a smooth move while the frontrunners were battling with each other. Robertson claimed the checkered with Jim Shoaf of Lexington and Ronnie Barron of Lexington finishing in second and third.
            In the second Sportsman race, Taylor Branch of Lewisville won – his fifth win of the season. Ryan Nelson of Winston-Salem and Kyle Edwards of King came in second and third.
            David Sumner of Trinity brought home the victory in the 20-lapper for the 104.1 WTQR Street Stock Series. Doug Wall of Pfafftown claimed second, with Matt Cotner of Rural Hall taking third.
            In the Time Warner Cable Stadium Stock Series, Dale Barneycastle of Mocksville claimed the checkered in the first race, with Cody Arrington of Mount Airy winning the second race.
