WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Tim Brown sailed ahead to claim the checkered flag in a rather smooth first Modified race at Bowman Gray Stadium. But the second race for the Brad’s Golf Cars Modified Series was a heated battle that sent shock waves through the entire field.
Brown was the fastest qualifier – and when the top six qualifiers redrew for starting position, lucky Brown plucked the pole as his starting spot. Ronnie Clifton, who was the second fastest qualifier, started on the outside front row.
As the green flag fell in the first 50-lap race, Brown shot out into the lead. For three double-file restarts, Clifton tried to steal the lead away. The number 66 of Clifton was able to deliver a nudge or two, but it seemed that no one could touch Brown. “Everything’s just going well, and the car’s phenomenal,” said Brown. “
Jonathan Brown, Michael Clifton, Ronnie Clifton and Jason Myers filled the top five.
However, the second 50-lap modified feature saw Danny Bohn claim victory over Michael Clifton with Tommy Neal, Jonathan Brown and Myers filling the top five.
Taylor Branch and Michael Adams each won sportsman features.
Tim Vaden copped the street stock race and Derek Taylor won the stadium stock event.
