Jason Myers and Jonathan Brown Hit Their Stride at Bowman Gray

Jason Myers and Jonathan Brown
both showed on Saturday that they’ll be forces to reckon with this
season at Bowman Gray Stadium. Each claimed their second 2018 victory on
Saturday, and each of them are hungry for more wins.
    Jason Myers of Walnut Cove took the first step towards victory by being
the fastest qualifier for the Brad’s Golf Cars Modified Series. He
started on the pole with brother Burt Myers starting beside him on the
outside front row.
    “We’ve had a good car all year. We’ve just been struggling with
qualifying. We went back actually to a three-year-old setup, and it
worked,” said Jason Myers about the pole lap. “Our car has been racing
well. But until you get it out front, you don’t know. So we finally had
a good enough lap to put us on the front row tonight.”
    The #4 of Jason Myers then stayed ahead of brother Burt to claim the
checkered – although a hard shot from Burt almost took him out of the
race during the final lap. “I tiptoed getting into the corner. The car
was getting a little free getting in. I figured it’d be best just to go
in, stop, and make him hit me,” said Jason about the impact. “When he
hit me, it turned me sideways. I about blew it on the last lap. But me
and Burt can race like that all night. I don’t think he’s going to knock
me out of the way because we still have the same parents.”
    For the start of the second race, Daniel Beeson of Kernersville and
Randy Butner of Pfafftown were sent to the front row. In quick order,
George Brunnhoelzl III of Mooresville made a dash past them to claim the
lead.
    Jonathan Brown of Winston-Salem, who started in ninth, made his way
through the field and was soon knocking on the bumper of Brunnhoelzl.
The 79 of Brunnhoelzl held Brown off for lap after lap but he couldn’t
hold down the lead for long enough. Brown gave him a bump and moved
smoothly to the inside to steal the lead away on lap 11.
    Brown then went on to take the checkered – his second victory in a row
after an early season characterized by mishaps and mechanical struggles.
“I think this is the fifth week of racing and I think we should have won
about four times this year,” said Brown.
    In the Texas Steak & Tap House Sportsman Series, Michael Adams of
Yadkinville sailed ahead in the lead to claim the victory in the first
20-lapper. An intense battle for second place had the crowd shouting as
John Holleman of Winston-Salem and Zack Ore of Winston-Salem fought.
Zack Clifton had wrecked in the first race and was forced to head to the
pits. But he returned in the second race to grab the win.
    Spencer Martin of Winston-Salem won in the Law Offices of John Barrow
Street Stock Series, with Chris Allison of Mocksville brought home the
checkered in the 15-lapper for the Q104.1 Stadium Stock Series.
