MYERS RIGHT PLACE AT RIGHT TIME IN OPENING NIGHT WIN
Grabs Caraway Whelen Southern Modified Victory

Jason Myers went from settling for a fight over second place to sitting in Victory Lane at Caraway Speedway Saturday night.

The Walnut Cove, N.C., driver 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 Coors Light Pole Award earlier in the day, had led race-high 96 laps and had built a lead of nearly two seconds. While Brown was pulling away, Myers was all over Brunnhoelzl's back bumper in what looked to be a fight for a runner-up finish.

Instead, Brown's misfortune set up a battle on the race's final restart. Brunnhoelzl slipped up as they drag raced down the front stretch, which allowed Myers to get away en route to his third career victory in his 97th start.

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.

Gary Putnam was sixth, followed by Cole Powell, Thomas Stinson, John Smith and Bryan Dauzat. Brian Loftin, who was third on the restart and got caught up behind Brunnhoelzl, slid all the way back to 11th. Brown wound up 13th.

The NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour will be back in action for the KOMA Unwind Relaxation Drink 150 on Saturday, March 23 at Southern National Motorsports Park in Kenly, N.C.
