Loftin Wins Second WSMT Race of 2008 at Bowman Gray Stadium
Aug 5, 2008 - updated Aug 5th, 2008 12:51pm
Web posted by MediaFit

Winston-Salem, NC. --

Once the green flag waved for the Advance Auto Parts 199 Whelen Southern Modified Tour Race at Bowman Gray Stadium in Winston-Salem, NC, Brian Loftin and the #23 QMF Solutions/L&R Transmissions Chevrolet took off and never looked back. Loftin took the green-white-checkered finish after leading all 202 laps for his second win of the 2008 season.

Loftin knew that Saturday night was going to be a good race after he qualified 7th on Friday night then redrew the pole once the top eight cars drew for their starting positions.

“We all knew we had a good car,” said Loftin. “Once we got a couple laps into the race we found out just how good of a car it was.”

Loftin did have his work cut out for him. With eleven cautions throughout the race, he had to be quick on the restarts to stay ahead of Burt Myers, in the #1 car, who was hot on Loftin’s bumper on every restart. Myers won this race two of the last three visits to the stadium with his brother Jason Myers winning it the third time. Loftin also had to stay focused as he tried to avoid getting tangled up in lapped traffic accidents.

The win at Bowman Gray was extra special for Loftin. As a second generation driver, Loftin’s goal has been to tie his dad for wins at the stadium. They now both have two apiece.

“It is exciting to have my name next to my Dad’s in the record books at the Stadium,” said Loftin. “I have been dreaming about that for a long time. I could not have done it without all of his help and support over the years and without all the hard work the rest of my crew puts in. I could not have won this race without them.”

Loftin is currently 2nd in points in the WSMT only eleven points behind the leader. He has two wins and three top five finishes in his four starts. The next tour race is on August 22 at Caraway Speedway in Asheboro, NC. Loftin won last time he visited that track.
