MYERS PREVAILS AT CARAWAY
ASHEBORO — Jason Myers went from settling for a fight over second place to sitting in Victory Lane at Caraway Speedway Saturday night.
Myers edged George Brunnhoelzl III on a green-white-checkered finish that extended the Charles Kepley Memorial 150 to 153 laps. The final caution in the NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour season opener was brought out when race leader Tim Brown suddenly slowed on the frontstretch. Brown, who won the Pole Award earlier in the day, had led race-high 96 laps and had built a lead of nearly two seconds.
Brunnhoelzl, the defending tour champion, settled for second while Kyle Ebersole rallied from two laps down to finish third. Ted Christopher and Andy Seuss were fourth and fifth, respectively.
