John Smith Claims Second Straight SMRS Modified Win At Wake County
RALEIGH, NC (July 2) - John Smith grabbed the lead from Brandon Ward with 29 laps to go and led the rest of the way for his second consecutive Southern Modified Racing Series (SMRS) Presented By PASS win in the Battle At The Bullring Saturday night at Wake County Speedway.

"I think the real deal was my boys put the left front on the left rear [during the pit stop] and that gave me a lot more drive off the corner than the rest of them, but I still didn't think I could get passed them," said Smith afterwards. "Brandon [Ward] was getting a little bit sideways off the corner and I knew Jason [Myers] was coming so I knew I needed to go. But my boys in the pits really won me this race."

Walnut Cove, NC's Burt Myers scorched the tight quarter-mile in qualifying with lap of 12.676 seconds to score his first Precision Built Spindles Pole Award. But, after the top six qualifies redraw, Ward would slot into the pole position, while B Myers would move to the outside of the front row.

At the drop of the green, Ward would take the lead, until B. Myers made the move to go up front on lap 20. B. Myers would continue to lead until he got hung up behind the slower car of Jason Tutterow on lap 63, allowing Ward to move back by and take the lead again. The only caution of the night would wave ten laps later when Tutterow had a problem entering turn one.

At this time, all the leaders would pit, with B. Myers winning the race off pit row and Zack Brewer flanking him on the outside for the restart. B. Myers would only lead the next six laps before being bypassed by Ward and John Smith. The fastest car on the track though was Jason Myers, who restarted fifth, but was quickly closing in on the leaders.

While Smith made the move by Ward with 29 laps to go for the lead, J. Myers had moved past Brewer and B. Myers into third. With around 10 laps to go, J. Myers disposed of Ward for second, but ran out of time to run Smith down for the win. Following Smith and J. Myers to the checkered flag were Ward, B. Myers, and Brewer.

Cory Walker claimed his first career Mid-Atlantic Limited Late Model win, while Dillon Spain took the checkered flag in the Legends division.

The Southern Modified Racing Series Presented By PASS will be in action once again for 125 laps on Friday night, July 22 at Tri-County Motor Speedway. Entry forms will be available at SouthernModifiedRacingSeries,com.

The Madhouse Meets The Bullring
When Southern Mods Hit
Wake County Saturday Night
CHARLOTTE, NC (June 28) - The Tour-type Modifieds of the Southern Modified Racing Series (SMRS) Presented By PASS will be back on track for a special Saturday night show at Wake County Speedway this weekend. The Battle At The Bullring will see many of the same racers who turned the famed Bowman Gray Stadium into the "Madhouse" compete for 125 laps on the Wake County "Bullring."

And, while many might be familiar with the tight, quarter-mile confines of Bowman Gray Stadium, Wake County is an unknown for most of the SMRS field. Bowman Gray is flat, Wake County Speedway is banked, which should make for some outstanding action for the Southern Modified contingent. And, measuring at .23 mile in length, Wake County is actually smaller than Bowman Gray. Winston-Salem, NC's Zach Brewer recently tested at Bowman Gray for the Battle At The Bullring and is excited to get back on track this weekend. This will be Brewer's first time in action since losing an engine in the season opener at Hickory Motor Speedway in March.

"I think we should be able to carry a lot of the data we gathered at Bowman Gray and carry it over to Wake County," says Brewer, who will be debuting new sponsor Flex Plus Financial this weekend. "They are close on the gear, but Wake County has a little more banking from what I've heard. I'm just glad to be back behind the wheel."

Walnut Cove, NC's Burt Myers is one of the top names in southeast Tour-type Modified racing and has seen great success throughout the region. After a strong start to the 2016 season, the multi-time Bowman Gray Stadium champion is enthusiastic about his chances for his first SMRS win on Saturday night at Wake County.

"I'm excited about racing at Wake County because I've never been there," says Myers, driver of the Citrusafe BBQ Grill Cleaners #1. "They say it's a banked quarter-mile so that should be cool. We'll race at Caraway Friday night, make a change of cars in the middle of the night, and then head over to Wake County."

In addition to Brewer, and Burt and Jason Myers, the entry list continues to grow by the day for the Battle At The Bullring. Former PASS Super Late Model winner at Wake County, Brandon Ward, has entered as well as SMRS points leader John Smith. Plus a strong group of Southern Modified drivers are expected including Mike Norman, Jimmy Wallace, Jason Tutterow, and more.

In addition to the SMRS Tour Modifieds, former Bowman Gray Stadium champion, Mack Little, will lead the Mid-Atlantic Limited Late Models to Wake County Speedway for the first time, plus action for the Legends cars.

The Southern Modified Racing Series Presented By PASS will hit the track this Saturday night at Wake County Speedway, with practice starting at 4:30 PM, grandstands will open at 6 PM, qualifying at 7 PM, the on track Pit Party at 7:45 PM, and racing starting at 8:30 PM.
