Somehow, someway the rains held off Saturday night in the great Winston-Salem area, which was a good thing for fans. The Stadium Stocks had their biggest event of the year, a 50-Lap qualify to get in, race. Also, the Sportsman division had their first 100-Lapper of the year. On top of all this, it was also double points night for all divisions. Brandon Brendle received the pole in the Stadium Stocks by well over two-tenths of a second, running a high 15.4. Lee Jeffreys set quick time in the Modifieds.
Street Stocks kicked off the double points night with a 20-Lap event. Bryant Robertson led about half the race before getting booted by Spencer Martin and Blake Shupe. All three competitors were involved in this wreck and Billy Gregg inherited the lead. Billy held off Taylor Robbins restart after restart to win his third race of the year. Taylor Robbins finished second and Steven Berrier third.
The first Modified race was led from start to finish by Lee Jeffreys. This was Lee’s first win of 2018. Tim Brown finished second and Burt Myers third.
The night’s main event, a 100-Lap Sportsman race was up next. Michael Adams led the field to the green flag. A few cautions throughout the race would group the field back together but, for the most part, the race was relatively clean. Adams led until the three-quarter mark and was finally passed by Kevin Neal. Kevin went on to lead the rest of this event and won his second race of 2018. Adams finished second and Derek Stoltz third.
Daniel Yates led our field to the green in the second 25-Lap Modified race. Yates led until lap ten or so, but unfortunately collided with lap car Susan Harwell and actually sent his car head-on into the pit barrels. Driver was okay, car not so much. Jonathan Brown inherited the lead due to this incident and led the rest of this race to win his third race of 2018. Jason Myers finished second and Tim Brown third.
A caution filled 50-Lap Stadium Stock race was due up next. Brandon Brendle took the field to school leading most of this race. Tyler Bush (#68) ended up on his side in turn one after an accordion effect wreck. AJ Sanders and Chris Allison were both involved in late-race incidents ending their chance at a win and a decent points night. Brendle would win, this is his third of 2018. Grayson Keaton finished second and Wesley Thompson third.
