"MADHOUSE" MODIFIED VETERAN MYERS
TAKES WILD WIN AT KINGSPORT SPEEDWAY

Jason Myers, starred on the History Channel's 2009 reality series "The Madhouse" depicting the struggles and triumphs of Open Wheel Modified racers at the historic Bowman Gray Stadium in Winston-Sale, N.C.

It got pretty crazy at Kingsport Speedway Friday night, as Myers survived two spins initiated by the rough driving Dawsonville, Ga. youngster Spencer Davis to make a double pass, moving from third to first on the final lap.

Abingdon's Caleb Holman appeared to be the man to beat in the early laps, moving from his fifth places starting position to the lead within the first five laps. Holman was stretching his lead turning laps in the 14.2-second range when a apparent mechanic failure put his "Food Country" sponsored entry in the pits for good around lap 30.

With Holman's departure, Myers appeared to have the race in hand. But, late contact between Davis and Myers as they were maneuvering through slower traffic put King, N.C. driver Dan Speeney in the lead with five to go. As Myers was making a move to pass Speeney for the lead in the final laps, Davis set Myers spinning in turn four with contact from behind.

On the last lap Davis pushed Speeney high coming out of turn two, opening the door for Myers to make a winning move on the bottom past both of them on the backstretch. Speeney finished second and Davis in third.

"It was't much of a race until the restarts," Myers said from victory lane. "It takes a real class act to knock somebody out going around a lapped car, and then try to wreck him on the restart when you know I'm getting ready to straight-away you like I did the first 120 laps. But I'll tell you what, this thing was untouchable tonight. We stayed out on our old tires and we're still better than the rest of them."

Myers added, "I drove my butt off. I earned that race."
