Myers Muscles Way To Langley Victory Lane

Scores Whelen Southern Mod Win After Last-Lap Fireworks

NWSMT Points

HAMPTON, Va. -- Burt Myers got his first NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour win of 2014 Saturday night and not without controversy.

The 38-year-old Walnut Cove, North Carolina, driver drove to Victory Lane at Langley Speedway after a wild final lap of the Bayport 150.

Myers was running second to George Brunnhoelzl III on the final lap when the two made contact coming out of Turn 4. Myers crossed the line first as Brunnhoelzl bounced off the outside wall and spun across the track. After a video review of the incident, NASCAR officials upheld Myers win and Brunnholzl was second in second.

Championship points leader Andy Seuss finished third, followed by J.R. Bertuccio and Jason Myers.

It was Burt Myers' first win since the 2013 season final on the quarter-mile at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Kyle Ebersole, Danny Bogn, Gary Putnam, Ryan Preece and Luke Fleming rounded out the top 10 at Langley. Earlier in the day, Preece won the Coors Light Pole Award in qualifying, but a late race pit stop cost the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour regular a shot at the win.

The NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour will be right back at it on Saturday, Sept. 5 at Caraway Speedway in Sophia, North Carolina.
