Following the 100-lap Modified main event this past Saturday at Bowman Gray Stadium (NC) the posted results were unofficial due to a delayed tech decision on race winner Danny Bohn’s No. 65 Modified.
Bowman Gray officials took Bohn’s carburetor to the NASCAR R&D Center in Charlotte, North Carolina on Tuesday afternoon for further evaluation.
“We really aren’t that relieved. I knew we were right and it just stinks that there was even a discrepancy,” Bohn told Speed51.com powered by JEGS. “Just hinders the excitement when people think you’re cheating and you’re not. I knew the right call would be made today.”
$12,000 was also on the line Saturday night in the popular Fan’s Challenge.
When the checkered flag waved, both John Smith and Jason Myers were successful in winning the challenge by qualifying in the top four, starting in the back and making it back into the top four. That meant that the two would split the bonus money down the middle at $6,000 each.
Following post-race technical inspection, John Smith was disqualified for a technical infraction, leaving the $12,000 to Jason Myers.
With Bohn’s car being taken into question, it brought up the potential for the $12,000 to be split between Jason Myers and his brother Burt, who had unofficially finished fifth after accepting the challenge.
Since Bowman Gray officials have verified Bohn as the winner, Burt Myers will be credited with a fifth-place finish. Following the decision made today, Jason Myers was awarded the full $12,000 prize pool from the Fan’s Challenge.
