It was a roller-coaster ride getting to Winner’s Circle, but Tim Brown was grateful for the change of tone for his 2018 season. He claimed the checkered for the Kevin Powell Motorsports 100 – his first win of the year in the Brad’s Golf Cars Modified Series.

Bobby Measmer of Concord was the fastest qualifier on Saturday. Jonathan Brown of Winston-Salem, Burt Myers of Walnut Cove, and Brandon Ward of Winston-Salem rounded out the top four – and each of them had the choice of taking the Fans’ Challenge. Burt Myers and Brandon Ward chose not to start in the rear and take on the challenge. But Jonathan Brown and Bobby Measmer were bold enough to begin the race in the back of the field for a chance to win $3,000 if they finished back in the top four.

When the competitors randomly drew for position, George Brunnhoelzl III started on the pole with Tim Brown on the outside. Daniel Yates of Lexington started third with Burt Myers beside him in fourth.

Across ten cautions, the field battled for lap after lap. Myers was able to take to the outside row to battle Brunnhoelzl for the lead but was knocked back as he and Brunnhoelzl contended fiercely. On lap 53, Myers made the pass stick, and Brunnhoelzl fell back.

During the next double-file restart, Brunnhoelzl took to the outside to try and reclaim his position. He was unable to overtake Myers and became caught on the outside row. As he fell back, he tussled with Tim Brown – sending Brunnhoelzl’s car spinning.

Brown then moved up to challenge Myers for the lead over the course of four double-file restarts. Myers fought him back the first three times but lost on the fourth in the blink of an eye when tires spun and contact was made.

“We raced clean, and I drove the outside,” said Brown. “He’d give me room and I’d give him room. I don’t know if somebody behind him hit him and knocked him sideways. I got a run off the corner and my spotter said ‘clear.’”

“I just got a bad restart,” said Myers about relinquishing the lead. “Got a little sideways getting in, and I think me and him and the 04 [of Brandon Ward] all hit each other -just hard Bowman Gray Stadium racing.”

Myers pressured the bumper of Brown but was unable to shake him during the final laps. Brown went on to win – his first race of the season. “I’ve had a rough season so far even though we’ve finished decent,” said Brown. “Hopefully we’ll get some momentum now and keep winning.”

While Tim Brown’s luck was changing for the better, Jonathan Brown and Bobby Measmer ran into some bad luck. Both had to pit due to car issues and were unable to complete the Fans’ Challenge

Myers finished in second, with Jeremy Gerstner of Wesley Chapel, FL taking third.

In the Texas Steak & Tap House Sportsman Series, Michael Adam of Yadkinville claimed the checkered in the first 20-lapper – managing to stay ahead of all the wreckage behind him as Tommy Neal of Walkertown and Dylan Ward of Winston-Salem battled. John Holleman of Winston-Salem brought home the win in the second 20-lap race.

Billy Gregg of Lexington earned the victory in the Law Offices of John Barrow Street Stock Series. In the Q104.1 Stadium Stock Series, Grayson Keaton of Mocksville and Chris Allison of Mocksville each brought home a win.
