(Bowman Gray Stadium, Winston-Salem, NC) With short, white-hot twin 25s for the Brad’s Golf Cars Modified Series on Saturday, the stage was set for some explosive action at Bowman Gray Stadium.
            Tim Brown of Rural Hall qualified on the pole, with Jason Myers of Walnut Cove turning the second fastest lap.      Both competitors knew that the initial start would be one of the most important parts of the whole race.
            And as they took off into the first turn, the two bumped as they fought for the lead. They kept racing, with Myers falling in behind Brown – at least for a few seconds. Heading into turn three, Myers delivered a shot to the rear bumper of Tim Brown, sending Brown sliding out of the lead.
            “I had a real good run coming to the green on the initial start with Tim,” said Myers. “And he overdrove it down into one and got into the side of me – and it hit me so hard in the left-front that it jerked the wheel out of my hand.”
            “So I gave him a shot down there in three and four to let him know I wasn’t happy about it. Fortunately, he slid out a little and left the bottom wide open - and I just had to take advantage of it,” said Myers.
            Brown wasn’t too happy either about the incident. “Jason jumped me on the start, and I drove in down there and we got together,” said Brown. “And then he pretty much busted my rear up there in turn three.”

             The #83 of Brown was immediately nudging the bumper of Myers in an effort to take back the top position. But Myers was able to hold on and take the win. “I don’t spin people out intentionally,” said Brown. “I don’t race that way. People get mad at me, my fans get mad at me – and if they want to pay for it, I’ll race it however they want me to.”
            Brown finished second. Burt Myers of Walnut Cove slipped back to fourth after getting caught up in lapped traffic as he battled with Lee Jeffreys of Wallburg. Jeffreys finished third.
            The O’Reilly Auto Parts “Madhouse Scramble” sent Junior Miller of Danbury to the pole with Michael Clifton of Walkertown starting on the outside front row. The first few laps seemed to replay the action from the first race: Miller and Clifton fighting for the lead, with Clifton giving a bump to Miller to steal away the lead.
            “He slid down there in the corner,” said Clifton. “I had so much momentum going in that I hit him in the back end. It wasn’t anything intentional - it was just one of those racing deals.”
             Miller slowed off the pace, allowing Clifton to approach lapping him. The #69 of Miller almost came to a stop right in front of Clifton, hoping to slow Clifton down and sabotage his victory. But Clifton managed to hold on and grab the win.

             Randy Butner of Pfafftown finished behind in Clifton in second. Burt Myers climbed up to grab a third place finish.
          In the Classic Muscle Sportsman Series, Mack Little of Mocksville claimed the checkered in the first 20-lapper, with Kenny Mitchell of Winston-Salem winning in the second race – his first ever win at the Stadium.
            There was another first time winner on Saturday: David Creed of Ararat claimed the victory in the Q104.1 New Country Street Stock Series race.
            And in the Summer Shootout Stadium Stock Series, Chase Hunt of Lexington held on to take the checkered in the annual Stadium Stock 50 – the longest and most prestigious race of the season for the Stadium Stock class.
