WINSTON-SALEM, NC - Saturday night was a great night at Bowman Gray Stadium in Winston-Salem, NC – particularly if your last name is Myers. Brothers Burt and Jason Myers finished first and second in the first 25-lapper for the Brad’s Golf Cars Modified Series.

Burt Myers of Walnut Cove, who led the points entering the event, went out first to qualify – and turned a lap he knew would be strong.

“I knew it was good but you don’t really know how good until the competition goes out behind you,” said Myers, who was pleasantly surprised when the lap ended up earning him the pole.

Starting on the outside of him would be brother Jason Myers of Walnut Cove. The two settled smoothly into the front two spots as the green flag waved, but Jason wasn’t going to let Burt take the win uncontested.

“He gave me some shots,” said Burt about Jason. “But I knew where my car was good and where his car was good, and I could make adjustments from that.”

Burt Myers noted that his car was stronger during stretches of green flag racing, while Jason performed better immediately after cautions. And unfortunately for Burt, cautions seemed to come every few laps.

“We wanted some green flag laps but we didn’t get much,” said Myers. “I don’t know what’s going on lately – a full moon seems to be hanging around every Saturday night. It’s the Madhouse.”

The Myers brothers ended up finishing one and two, with Tim Brown of Tobaccoville coming in third.

Dawsonville, GA’s Spencer Davis brought his ride home in the 13th position.

The O’Reilly Auto Parts “Madhouse Scramble” sent rookie Cale Gale of Winston-Salem to the pole for the start of the second race. Although Gale is new to Stadium Modified racing, he’s no stranger to a race car: Gale has often competed in the NASCAR Nationwide Series and the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.

Chris Fleming of Mount Airy was set to start on the outside front row.

The first lap proved to be the most fateful as Gale and Fleming battled for the lead. When a quick caution came out, Fleming was ahead by a nose – placing him in the lead for the restart. Fleming never looked back, soaring ahead to take the checkered.

“My car was good - I was just hoping I could hold them off,” said Fleming, who noted that Gale was stiff competition. “He beat Kyle Busch, so he could beat anybody - I knew I didn’t have a rookie there,” said Fleming.

The victory was a much needed surge of encouragement for Fleming.

“I got to thinking that I couldn’t win any more. I was doubting myself,” said Fleming. “We haven’t forgotten how to work on race cars - we’re good on these cars. But I just needed to win so badly.”

Gale came in second, with Tim Brown moving his way up to another third place finish.

Spencer Davis didn’t fare as well in the second feature, finishing 18th.

In the Double D Construction Services Sportsman Series, the first 20-lapper ended with an unforgettable dash to the checkered flag. Derek Stoltz of Walkertown raced his way up to second place and began to pressure the bumper of race leader Mack Little of Kernersville.

Stoltz became increasingly aggressive as the laps ticked by, and Little raced hard in an effort to defend his lead. As they headed out of turn four towards the checkered flag, the two collided – sending Little spinning while Stoltz stole the win away.

Little spun across the finish line in second, while Michael Tilley of Winston-Salem came in third.

Kenny Bost of Lexington started on the pole for the second Sportsman race and held on to take the checkered. Ryan Robertson of Winston-Salem finished in second. Although his car was beaten and dented, Derek Stoltz fought his way up to a third place finish in the second race.

John McNeal of Winston-Salem brought home the win in the Street Stock Series. Donnie Martin of Winston-Salem and Brian Wall of Winston-Salem finished second and third.

In the Traffic Control Safety Services Stadium Stock Series, Daniel Yates of Lexington won the first race. A.J. Sanders of Mocksville took the checkered in the second race.

Bowman Gray Stadium is back in action on May 10, with a 100 lap Modified feature, along with racing from the Sportsman, Street Stock and Stadium Stock divisions.
