Bowman Gray Racing Recap: Week of Sat May 13th 2023

Week five is officially in the books, although it got cut short due to rain. But the threat of rain didn’t stop competitors from trying to get the race in. Stadium Stock would kick the night off with a 15-lap race. 

A.J. Sanders would take lead with five laps remaining after contact with Chuck Wall. Sanders would go on and pick up the win for the 58th career win at Bowman Gray.

Sanders finished ahead of Brandon Brendle second, son Stephen Sanders third, Wyatt Sapp fourth, and Blaine Curry fifth. As Curry battled back after being involved in an early accident.

Next up was the first 20-lapper in the McDowell Heating & Air Sportsman Series, Michael Adams led flag to flag went on to pick up his third win of the season and third win in three straight weeks. 

Adams held off a hard charging Chase Robertson, who has also won two races this season, Zack Ore third, and Riley Neal fourth. 

This win was Adams his 26th career win, he would draw eighth for the Madhouse Scramble for the second 20 lap race.

Modified would be up next as Jason Myers would start on the pole and lead flag to flag to win his 38th of his career, tying him with his father, Gary Myers, for ninth place on the all-time wins list in the Modified Series. Giving the Myers’s family a total of 165 career wins. 

 In the second 20 lapper Sportsman race, Wesley Thompson and Justin Taylor would start front row. Amber Lynn would take the lead after contact between Taylor, Thompson and Sterling Plemmons causing a pile up in turn two. Amber would go on to lead the remainder of the race holding off young Riley Neal for second. It was her first win of the season. 

Next up would be the second Modified race, Ross “Boo Boo” Dalton would start on the pole. On lap two Brandon Ward and Boo Boo Dalton would get together causing a jam up bringing out the caution. While under caution, it began to rain and the drivers were asked to move their cars to the pit. It continued to rain, and the rest of the racing scheduled Saturday night was cancelled 

Next week’s action at Bowman Gray Stadium will be highlighted by the Great Clips Crash Fest. The Crash Fest consists of Midway Mobile Chain Race, a Midway Storage Skid Race, and a Midway Mobile Storage Demolition Derby.
