BOWMAN GRAY PREVIEW
 Bowman Gray Stadium

LEGENDS OF THE PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE AT BOWMAN GRAY PREVIEW
In Their Own Mind or Minds of Others, All Have Had an Impact on Bowman Gray Stadium Racing History

Bowman Gray Stadium Racing is filled with “legend” and history.   From Tim Flock’s first and only Bowman Gray championship in 1949 through Burt Myers 2016 title run, the “Stadium” has been a “star maker” or a “heart breaker” for the thousands of drivers wanting to be a part, any part, of the history.   From Tim Brown’s 82 wins to Bobby Allison’s win that doesn’t exist, the uncountable laps turned around NASCAR’s longest running weekly track, each lap adds to the history.

The upcoming Bowman Gray Racing Preview will have some of the best of the current Bowman Gray Stadium drivers from all four of the tracks regular divisions along with some of the greatest names from days past at the “Madhouse”.  

Hank Schoolfield coined the term “Madhouse” way back in 1955 when Billy Myers was blistering the competition on his way to the NASCAR National Sportsman Division Championship.   Schoolfield hung the title “Master of a Madhouse” on Myers who won 12 feature events and his third track Championship at Bowman Gray before moving on to the Grand National ranks in 1956.   Since then the “Madhouse” has seen others conquer the flat quarter-mile ribbon of asphalt.   Pee Wee Jones earned six titles including five-in-a-row from 1956 through 1960.   Perk Brown, Glen Wood, Ken Rush, max Berrier and others won multiple titles.   Ralph Brinkley notched eight championships and Robert Jeffreys, Paul Radford, Phillip Smith and others won the crown. But since 1996 only four drivers have claimed the championship trophy.   Junior Miller has three, Danny Bohn has one and Burt Myers and Tim Brown have claimed the rest with Myers earning seven and Brown ten.  

Most of those drivers or a family representative plus NASCAR Hall of Fame Members, Glen and Leonard Wood, Rex White and Jerry Cook will be on hand at the Preview along with many other “legends” or soon-to-be “legends” signing autographs or just hanging out with their many fellow racers, friends and fans.

There will be a charity auction, 50/50 raffle, the Bowman Gray Stadium simulator, old and new video to entertain fans and other entertainment will be on hand.

Gates open at 10:00 AM on Saturday February 11th and the opening ceremonies will begin at 10:30 with Driver introductions and Country Music Recording Artist Tammie Davis singing the National Anthem.   Admission is only $10.00 for adults and kids six and under are free.   All proceeds go to the “Forever is Tomorrow Foundation” and the Bowman Gray Stadium Racing Ladies Auxiliary.

Tickets can be purchased in advance at the Fairgrounds Annex Box Office on online at www.wsfairgrounds.com.   For more information and details on the event visit www.wsfairgrounds.com.
