SOPHIA – Bowman Gray Stadium regulars made big impacts in Saturday night’s main event at Caraway Speedway.
Burt Myers was the winner of the SMART Modified Tour’s Revolutionary 99, followed by Tim Brown and Ronnie Williams.
“It feels great,” Myers said. “Things kind of clicked and we came together. My guys stuck it out on a night like this (when it had been really hot).”
Myers, who leads the SMART Modified Tour points standings, and Brown are co-leaders in the Bowman Gray Stadium standings in the Modifieds division at the Winston-Salem track.
Myers started in the third spot in the Revolutionary 99 and moved to the front on the 18th lap and led the rest of the way. He maneuvered around lapped traffic during parts of the last nine laps.
The Modifieds feature drew the most attention on the second big race night of the week at Caraway Speedway. Former NASCAR Cup Series champion Bobby Labonte ended up sixth behind fourth-place finisher Joey Coulter and fifth-place finisher Brian Loftin. There were 26 entries.
The race was part of the Rusty Harpe Memorial card at the track.
Josh Lowder of Archdale was the winner in the 50-lap 602 Modifieds, marking his second victory in a row at the track. Luke Baldwin was in second place and Slate Myers placed third.
A.J. Sanders claimed the 40-lap Mini Stocks race. Chuck Wall was second and followed by Luke Smith, Michael Wells and Bryson Pickard.
In Challengers, Cody Griffin captured the victory, with Matthew Smith second. Jacob Brooks was third and followed by Caleb Allred and 2023 five-time winner Allen Vance.
The UCARs race was won by Daniel Hughes ahead of Blair Patterson. In Bootleggers, Jon Morton was the winner, with Robbie Perkins the runner-up.
Because of a late-afternoon storm and time needed to dry the track, qualifying was nixed and the start of the races were slightly delayed.
Meanwhile in South Boston, Va., Carson Kvapil won the Thunder Road Harley-Davidson 200 at South Boston Speedway three nights after his third-place finish in the Firecracker 125 as part of June 28’s CARS Tour main event at Caraway Speedway.
Caraway’s next race night comes July 22 with twin features in Late Models, Challengers 602 Modifieds, UCARs and Bootleggers plus single races for Bandoleros and Legends.
