The Chrome Horn News


by Brian Hawks

    Welcome to another edition of the Insider's view from down South. Again, sorry for no update after Greenville-Pickens. Was a very long week afterwards.
    Well it was a two week event for the Caraway show as it was for Thompson as Burt Myers set fast time and got his fourth Bud Pole of the season. His brother would redraw on the pole but it would soon rain the show out for the next week.
    As the race got set the next week, Jason Myers would show the way for the first 140 laps of the event with heavy action going on behind him. Gene Pack had early woes of overheating with put him a lap down early and fighting his way back through the field.
    Tim Brown also made contact with the outside wall coming off turn two as Junior Miller made contact with the Hayes Jewelers #83 machine. Tim would go a lap down making repairs to his car on pit road during the green flag stop.
    Michael Clifton after having a strong qualifying run and starting up front had rear end problems and would have to load up early.
    Was an exciting event during the race in the mid-pack of racing as Jason Myers and Brian King pulled away from the field.
    Jason Myers had a strong lead and pulled up to Gene Pack. Gene raced him just as he would anyone else even though it was the leader and the outcome may have caused Jason to lose the race. Jason spun Gene going into turn two and brought out the caution late in the event.
    The showed LW Miller in the Baker Motorsports #36 behind him on the restart. LW drove to the inside but Jason held him off for a few laps. With 10 to go, LW drove hard into turn three and made side to side contact with Jason throwing him out of the groove and into the marbles. Jason fought back to one car length but LW Miller would win the race.
    After the race Junior Miller and Tim Brown had an engine revving contest and swerved toward each other a few times, Both were called to the NASCAR hauler after the race. Jason also let LW know he wasn't pleased with the way he was ran during the last few laps.
    1/4 of the Southern Tour is complete and taking a break as our local track of Bowman Gray Stadium kicks off this weekend!
    Note: Please stay tuned for a special edition of this article. I'll be discussing the future as I feel of Modified racing from a younger point of view.

Everyone be safe and support your local short tracks!

See ya at the races.
