Burt Myers Wins KOMA Unwind Season Opener at Hickory Motor Speedway

Drivers Tire Strategie Pays Off For Myers

Burt Myers would use a different strategie at the end to race for the win. Cautions paid a lot on drivers as they woould have serveral lead changed for the KOMA Unwind Modified Series 125 green flag lap.

Ryan Preece lived up to his “Preece Lightning” nickname by pacing practices and setting fast time in qualifying with a 14.339. But his car would never be up to snuff in the 125-lap feature, failing to lead even a single lap.

Early on in the race Spencer Davis looked like he had the car that was going to lap the field, but cautions would cause his lead vanish.

In the closing laps Zack Brewer an Chris Pasteryak would battle for the lead as Myers would slowly close in. With just five laps to go Myers would claim his first career victory at Hickory.

Pasteryak, regretting pitting too early in the event, would finish second with Jason Myers rounding out the three.
