Winston-Salem, NC — Tim Brown of Tobaccoville made history over the weekend, breaking the record for most all-time Modified wins at the Madhouse. And now, his points total is seeing the benefit.
Brown started off the season with a new chassis and high hopes. However, his first few weeks were what the nine-time champ would consider mediocre. Brown acknowledged that the first part of his season would be a struggle as he figured out the adjustments that needed to be made to dial in his new ride. Apparently, Brown and his crew have hit on something that works for them. He won on May 23, won in Friday’s Modified race, and won yet again in Saturday’s Modified race.
He leaps up from fifth up to second in the points standings for the Brad’s Golf Cars Modified Series. Dean Ward of Winston-Salem missed the racing on Friday, dropping him from second down to eighth. Chris Fleming of Mount Airy moves up to third in the points after some strong finishes over the weekend. Burt Myers maintains the points lead, strengthening the margin that separates him from the rest of the field after Dean Ward and Lee Jeffreys of Wallburg drop in the rankings.
In the Farm Bureau Insurance Sportsman Series, Taylor Branch of Lewisville holds on to the points lead. Jeff Garrison loses a little ground but manages to maintain his second place ranking. Michael Clifton of Yadkinville makes up some ground and moves closer to passing by Garrison. Derrick Rice of Kernersville moves up to tie Brian Wall of Winston-Salem for the points lead in the Q104.1 New Country Street Stock Series. Jeremy Warren’s win boosts him from fifth to third, just two points out of the lead.
A.J. Sanders of Mocksville collided as he fought for the lead in the McDowell Heating & Air Stadium Stock Series, dropping him out of a dominant points lead. Brandon Brendle of Winston-Salem takes over the spot in Sanders’s absence, and Shane Southard’s win on Saturday moves him up to tie Sanders for second in the points.
