WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – “You couldn’t write a script better than this,” said John Smith about his Friday night performance in the Brad’s Golf Cars Modified Series at Bowman Gray Stadium.

Smith, who is sponsored by G-OIL, drew the pole for the G-OIL 100 and led every lap to claim the checkered – winning an additional $1,000 bonus from G-OIL.

“We’re going to have to enjoy this one. This doesn’t happen very often,” said Smith.

Danny Bohn drew the outside front row for his starting spot and gave Smith several strong challenges for the top spot. In addition to the initial start, Bohn took to the outside for each of the four caution restarts.

“They aren’t going to give you the bottom so you just give it all you can on the outside,” said Bohn.

The restarts provided an interesting dynamic as Smith performed better during the long runs while Bohn was stronger immediately during the restarts.
