Well you could say a week off from having a “Bowman Gray Hangover” was much needed. Bowman Gray Racing returned Saturday June 2nd. The Modified division had a 100-lap event along with Twin 20’s for the Sportsman, a Street Stock race plus two Stadium Stock races. As the night would get started with a flyover and salute to our military.
The first race of the evening would be the Street Stock division. As Gerald Robertson would battle Bryan Sykes for the lead, but after grabbing the lead he would go on to lose it a couple laps later after a restart. Blake Shupe would eventually battle Sykes for the lead after using a lap car to his advantage and grab the lead from Sykes. Shortly after Shupe took the lead he would get turned by the #99 machine for the lead, ruining his good run. After a late race caution the field back would get bunched but up together, giving Jac Creed an opportunity to battle Sykes, as he would make a last lap pass to win this event. Sykes would finish second, Warren third, Wall fourth, and David Creed fifth.

The first Sportsman race was led flag-to-flag by Tommy Neal. Michael Adams evening would end early after contact with Bubba Tilley. But Adams would race back on foot to the pits in hopes to fix his car before the next race. but Tommy Neal would be too tough as he would go on to win his first race of 2018, John Holleman finished second, Taylor Branch third, Zack Ore fourth, Andrew Durham fifth.

While Jason Myers grabbed the pole but unfortunately for him, the 100-lappers are full-field draw races, and Bobby Measmer Jr and Randy Butner would elect to take the Colors Edge challenge to race for $6,000, meaning Daniel Beeson would lead the field to the green flag, with Burt Myers in second. Myers would take the lead off in turn two on lap one and set sail. After several early cautions, Bobby Measmer and Randy Butner were in a great position to contend for the $6,000. While Tim Brown had made his way back up to the top five after being swept up in an earlier accident, but his comeback would come to an end after contact with Jonathan Brown, ending both of their chances at a win. Lee Jeffreys and George Brunnhoelzl would have trouble off turn two to bring out the final yellow flag. Burt Myers would be too strong for the rest of the field and hold off brother Jason to win. Brandon Ward finished third John Smith fourth, Tim Brown fifth.

Time for the second Sportsman event of the night, Derek Stoltz and Kyle Southern started on the front row. As contact between Zack Clifton and Zack Ore would send Clifton’s car spinning into the infield and coming to a rest on top of the guardrail in turn one. While Stoltz would hold off Ore, and others until the final restart when Andrew Durham would get under Stoltz going into turn one and cleared him to win his first ever race in the Sportsman division at Bowman Gray Stadium. Zack Ore finished second and John Holleman third Derek Stoltz fourth Robbie Brewer fifth.

Chuck Wall and Brandon Brendle would go on to win the Stadium Stock events.
