Jason Myers Takes First Stadium Win of 2023

The win was his first since championship night last season

Jason Myers added another chapter to the family legacy at Bowman Gray Stadium with a victory on Saturday night in the 25 lap Tour Type Modified feature.

In holding off Tim Brown, Myers claimed his 38th Madhouse Modified victory, a triumph that gives his family 165 combined victories at The Stadium between himself, older brother Burt, and father Gary. The win also tied the younger Myers with his father for ninth on the all-time Tour Type Modified victory.

Brown is the all-time division winner leader with 94. The older Myers brother has 89.

“Tell Burt I’m coming for him,” Jason said with a hearty laugh after thanking his mom and wife on Mother’s Day weekend.

Brown gave Myers a couple of light taps but couldn’t power around over the course of 25 laps.

“You have no idea how hard we’ve been working on this race car, and it showed tonight,” Jason Myers said. “Tim might’ve been a little better than me at one time in the 25-lappers, but he needs to qualify (better) to get around me.”

Myers drew a 12 for the invert but it barely mattered as the second featured was rained out just two laps into the race. The caution actually waved for a spin involving Brandon Ward and Ross ‘Boo Boo’ Dalton. That’s when the weather moved in and the event was canceled shortly thereafter.

In the first 20-lap race in the McDowell Heating & Air Sportsman Series, Michael Adams held on for his third win of the season.

On lap 18 there was a caution, the second of the race after Braden Mills and Nate Gregg tangled around turns 3 and 4. That set up a two-lap sprint for the win between Adams, Chase Robertson, who has also won two races this season, Zack Ore, and Riley Neal.

Adams, who picked up his 26th career win, fended off Robertson for the win and drew No. 8 in the Madhouse Scramble to set up the inverted field for the second 20-lap race.

“I tell you what, Chase Robertson is the man,” Adams said. “That’s a wheel man there. I’ve got all respect for that family, him, his brother, his dad. I couldn’t ask for a better person to be behind me.

“Yeah, he was a little better than we were, but he raced me with respect and that’s all we can ask for.”

In the second 20-lap Sportsman race, Amber Lynn picked up her first win of the season after leading for much of the race.

Lynn, who finished sixth in the first race Saturday night, started third in the second race and took the lead on the first lap. On the first lap, Justin Taylor, Sterling Plemmons, and Wesley Thompson were in a collision around turn .

Lynn was able to fend off Neal the remaining laps for the win.

“Riley Neal ran me good. he ran me hard,” Lynn said. “Our car was just set up a little better. It’s been a rough year.

“This is dedicated to my mother for Mother’s Day. All the ladies out there, all the mothers out there dragging their kids to the race track. I appreciate every single one of you.”

Ore was third and Robertson was fourth.

In the 15-lap race for the Q104.1 Stadium Stock Series, A.J. Sanders took the lead with five laps remaining and was able to hold on for the win.

Chuck Wall, who had won the previous two Stadium Stock races, took the lead early in the race but was trapped between a lapped car and Sanders. Wall spun out around turn 1 of Lap 10, and Sanders took the lead.

Sanders, who won last year’s championship and was seeking his first win of the season, took the green flag and cruised to the win, just ahead of Brandon Brendle, son Stephen Sanders, and Wyatt Sapp.

“It’s a (heck) of a year,” said A.J. Sanders, who picked up his 58th win. “I’m telling you, we should’ve had three victories and a second, but tonight, I hate it for my best friend, Chuck Wall. I tried to get back down…I hate that for Chuck — me and him are good friends — but everybody that knows us knows how good Chuck Wall is. He is one of the best.”
