(Bowman Gray Stadium, Winston-Salem, NC) Burt Myers of Walnut Cove and Chris Fleming of Mount Airy grabbed emotional victories at Bowman Gray Stadium on Saturday, proving that getting to the front isn’t the hard part – it’s staying there.

Myers turned the fourth fastest qualifying lap in the Brad’s Golf Cars Modified Series, but Lady Luck gave him a boost up to a pole position start when the top six qualifiers redrew for starting position. “After we were docked 100 points, we made a bunch of changes on the car. And in practice today, we were terrible,” said Myers. “We drew the pole, and I said that we were just going to throw some stuff at it. We changed everything but the number and the driver. And we ended up having a heck of a race car and a heck of a night for us.”

On the initial start, Myers bolted past outside pole-starter Danny Bohn of Huntersville. Bohn settled into second but was immediately giving a few stout shots to the rear bumper of Myers. The #53 of Bohn had another chance in three double-file restarts, but Bohn couldn’t seal the deal.

Myers grabbed the checkered, with Bohn finishing second. The “Madhouse Scramble” sent Junior Miller of Danbury to the pole for the start of the second Modified 50-lapper – a race which would have some of the toughest battles for the lead seen all season at Bowman Gray Stadium.

Miller tussled with second-place-starter Tony Black of Lexington, banging fenders to secure the lead. Austin Pack of Walkertown moved up to challenge but was repeatedly blocked by a persistent Miller. The #69 of Miller was turned sideways many times by a bump to his rear, but the six-time champion maintained the lead.

Danny Bohn battled up from ninth to second to have his try at passing Miller. Bohn was bumped into the infield and fell back in the pack. Miller and Pack went at it again, taking each other out – and opening the door for Chris Fleming to grab the lead away.

Fleming then followed Miller’s example – using his rear bumper liberally to keep challengers at bay. Fleming held off Mike Bohn of Huntersville, but soon brother Danny Bohn was back up in the hunt for the lead. For lap after lap, Bohn stalked Fleming and tried to massage him out of the lead.

As the laps ticked by, the bumps from Bohn began to get a little more aggressive. Bohn took to the outside during a double-file restart, and neither he nor Fleming would give an inch as they battled for the top spot. Bohn was knocked aside, while Fleming held the lead.

“I try to run everybody cleanly,” said Bohn. “Obviously I was better than Chris – I guess he wanted to win the race a little bit more than me, and he took me out.”

Ronnie Clifton of Walkertown was the only one able to get by Fleming, powering past him in a double-file restart. But Fleming reclaimed the lead a few laps later and went on to win, with Clifton finishing second.

“I might not have had the best car, but I had the most heart,” said Fleming about the victory. Fleming added that the incident with Bohn was just racing. “I gave him plenty of room, trying to race him like a man. He came down the straightaway and turned left on me,” said Fleming.

“If that’s the way he wants to be, I don’t feel sorry for him,” said Fleming. “I drove my butt off and was fighting for everything I was worth.”

In the Double D Construction Services Sportsman Series, Zack Clifton of Walkertown tussled with Derek Stoltz of Walkertown to grab the win in the first 20-lapper. In the second Sportsman race, Michael Tilley of Winston-Salem slipped by Robbie Brewer of Winston-Salem to take the victory.

Derrick Rice crossed the finish line first in the Q104.1 New Country Street Stock Series race. But the first four finishers were later each disqualified due to failing post-race technical inspection. Brian Wall of Winston-Salem was declared the winner.

Jason Keaton of Mocksville and Stephen Sanders of Lexington each brought home a win in the twin 15-lappers for the Traffic Control Safety Services Stadium Stock Series.
