Jason Myers Captures KOMA Unwind Modified Pole

May 22nd. 2015 - (King, NC): Burt Myers continued his 2015 dominance of the KOMA Unwind Modified Madness Series with his third win of the season at Concord Speedway but it took a couple of late race cautions that bunched the field to give Myers the chance to chase down and overtake Gary Putnam to “close the deal”.

Qualifying saw B. Myers brother, Jason, claim the SUNOCO Race Fuel Pole Award over B. Myers making it a Myers Brothers Racing front row. Spencer Davis and Putnam filled row two and a pair of entries with the new Automotive Specialists “sealed” engines in row three. Caleb Holman and Jeremy Mayfield took advantage of the new “Dorton Spec” engine rules to claim those spots.

On the break, Burt Myers was able to squeeze brother Jason to the bottom entering turn one to claim the lead. On lap four Davis slipped past J. Myers and Holman eased by on lap five to claim third spot. Davis hounded B. Myers till a lap 7 pass saw the Hillbilly Racing driver take the lead as the field settled in till a lap eleven spin involving the cars of Jimmy Wallace and Buddy Ellis. Both recovered and continued in the event.

Hill lead on the restart but B. Myers took over at the point on lap 13 to lead through a lap 30 spin by Ellis and a three car dust up on lap 45 involving Tom Buzze, Bobby Sheffield and Holman that ended the night for all three cars.

A spin by Mayfield on lap 81 allowed most of the field to make their mandatory pit stops and get service. Putnam was the first off pit road followed by Brian Duzat. On the restart Dauzat slipped in the marbles and slammed the turn one concrete. He was OK but the night was over for the #97. Putnam took command on the restart and pulled away from B. Myers to lead the next 21 laps before Myers took over the point with J. Myers, Putnam, Kyle Bonsignore, Dan Speeney, Jamie Tomanio and Mayfield making appearances in the top five. The field had one last shot at Myers after a lap 121 crash when Mike Norman cut a right front tire and hit the wall coming out of the dog-leg ending his night.

In the end, Burt Myers was too strong for the field and claimed his third KOMA Unwind Modified Madness Series win of 2015 over J. Myers, Speeney, Bonsignore and Mayfield. Putnam ended his night in sixth followed by Tomanio, Jimmy Wallace, Davis and Buddy Ellis.
