Trouble for Jeffreys Gives Measmer Victory at Bowman Gray

 Lady Luck can be fickle at
Bowman Gray Stadium, and one man’s misfortune can be another man’s lucky
break.
    Such was the case for Lee Jeffreys of Wallburg in Saturday’s first race
for the Brad’s Golf Cars Modified Series. He turned the fastest lap yet
again – taking the pole for the third time in a row and the fifth time
this season.
    He bolted out into the lead on the initial start past the outside
pole-starter, Bobby Measmer of Concord. Measmer followed closely behind
Jeffreys, but the #75 of Jeffreys seemed hard to beat.
    But disaster struck for Jeffreys when mechanical problems sent his car
to the pits on lap 13. Measmer was the beneficiary of Jeffreys’s
absence, moving up to the lead.     “I thought I saw a tire going down. He
started getting really loose,” said Measmer about Jeffreys’s ailing car.
“I saw him pull over and waving outside – and I’m like, ‘Alright, this
is mine.’”
Despite the threats from Jonathan Brown of Winston-Salem, Measmer held
on to grab the victory. “We’ve rebuilt this car front to back, and every
week we come out it’s fast. But the driver loses his head, or I get
caught up in somebody else’s stuff,” said Measmer.
    The “Madhouse Scramble” sent Daniel Yates of Lexington to the pole for
the start of the second race. Darin Redmon of Walnut Cove started beside
him on the outside. Redmon encountered some disasters of his own as
mechanical issues caused him to lose control and slide into the guard
rail on the first lap.
    George Brunnhoelzl III of Mooresville moved up to battle with Yates for
the lead and slipped by him in short order. But Brunnhoelzl soon had his
hands full with Burt Myers pressuring his bumper.
    On lap 8, Myers made a risky move on the outside row to power his way
around Brunnhoelzl to grab the lead. Then it was smooth sailing to the
checkered flag for Myers, with John Smith of Mount Airy finishing on his
bumper.
    “We knew we were bad,” said Myers about his car in the first race. “We
didn’t quit. It’s hard to believe I’m standing here.”
    In the Texas Steak & Tap House Sportsman Series, Kevin Neal of
Walkertown dominated the first part of Saturday’s 100-lapper. Neal
defended his lead for five double-file restarts and was just a few laps
from taking the checkered flag. But a late-race caution gave Derek
Stoltz of Walkertown the chance to dart to the inside of Neal and steal
the lead. Stoltz went on to win.
    Billy Gregg of Lexington claimed the checkered in a caution-filled race
for the Law Offices of John Barrow Street Stock Series. And in the
Q104.1 Stadium Stock Series, both Wesley Thompson of Advance and Tim
Evans of Arcadia walked away with a victory trophy.
