WINSTON-SALEM, NC - Jason Myers is turning lemons into lemonade at Bowman Gray Stadium in Winston-Salem, NC, while Junior Miller continues his lucky streak.

With some disastrous luck earlier in the season, Myers sunk down in the points rankings for the Brad’s Golf Cars Modified Series. However, there are some upsides: with qualifying order set by points, Myers gets to go out later in the qualifying session when track conditions are more favorable to speedy laps.

“You definitely have an advantage going out later to qualify,” said Jason Myers. “I just use being out of the points for the year as an advantage.”

Myers turned one of the faster qualifying laps of the entire season – good enough for the pole on Saturday.

“The car was really good in practice, and I knew we were good enough for the pole,” said Myers.

The #4 car of Myers shot out into the lead and held on despite some early bumps from Tim Brown of Tobaccoville.

“After that first caution, the car tightened up and Tim was a little better than me in the center,” said Myers. “He kept giving me some jabs and knocking me around.”

But soon Myers’ car improved and then he pulled away with dominance.

“After the next caution came out and we went back green, this thing was a rocket ship,” said Myers.

Tim Brown finished in second, with Lee Jeffreys of Wallburg coming in third.

After a fortunate draw two weeks ago, the “Madhouse Scramble” draw was once again a lucky boon for Junior Miller of Danbury. Miller was sent to the outside front row for the start of the second race, with Robert Jeffreys of Winston-Salem starting on the pole.

Miller bolted out into the lead with Jeffreys filing into second. Jeffreys worked hard to fend off the advances of Spencer Davis of Dawsonville, GA and Tony Black of Lexington. But although Jeffreys gave Miller a tap or two at the start of the race, Miller sailed ahead at the top of the pack in short order.

The #69 of Miller went on to take the checkered flag.

“We can’t argue with it – we’ve had a little luck come our way. We’ve improved the car some – and luck’s worth more than all,” said Miller.

Jeffreys finished second, with Tony Black taking third.

In the Double D Construction Services Sportsman Series, Ryan Robertson of Winston-Salem smoothly moved past Michael Adams of Yadkinville to grab the win in the first 20-lapper. Adams finished behind him in second, with Taylor Branch of Lewisville finishing third.

Zack Clifton of Walkertown grabbed the checkered in a wild second Sportsman race. Clifton was battling with Chad Brooks of Lexington for the lead when Kenny Bost of Lexington entered the track from the pits and mistakenly collided with Brooks in a thunderous crash. Several of the top cars were involved in the pileup. Wayne Hill of Winston-Salem and Justin Taylor of King slipped by to take second and third.

Reggie Doub of Germanton took an emotional win in the Q104.1 New Country Street Stock Series, dedicating the victory to his late son. Billy Gregg of Lexington took second. Finishing in third was Chase Hunt of Lexington.

Saturday was the annual 50-lapper for the Traffic Control Safety Services Stadium Stock Series – their longest and most prestigious race of the season. A.J. Sanders of Mocksville was the fastest qualifier and then took the lead early on to grab the checkered. A.J. Quakenbush of Kernersville made good use of the outside lane in double-file restarts to climb up to a second place finish. David “P-Nut” Vernon of Walkertown finished in third.
