BRANDON WARD AND JEREMY GERSTNER NOTCH SMRS WINS AT CARAWAY
Gerstner Adds to Points Lead over Tim Brown

(Sophia, NC):   On a night that celebrated 53 years of racing at Caraway Speedway, veteran drivers added their own touch to victory lane.

Pre-race ceremonies honored six people who added much to the history of the track.   Tommy and Dot White were honored as track Officials and Herb Poole, Phillip Richardson, Charles Moody and Clyde Still represented drivers and car owners whose efforts added much to the history of Caraway Speedway and area racing in general and we are extremely grateful for the things they did during their careers.

The Southern Modified Race Tour Modified action started with Precision Spindle “Pole Award” winner and Gerstner in a side-by-side battle before Ward settled in at the point with Gerstner and John Smith in tow.   Caution flew early when Smith and Gerstner banged nerf bars sending Smith around and into the inside guard rail.   Smith recovered and reentered the race after some quick work by his crew.   The restart saw Gerstner and Ward battling again, this time with Tim Brown in the Jerry Hunt Supercenter/Hayes Jewelers Modified and Trey Hutchens adding to the chase.   One other quick caution flew for a little “drifting” action by SMRS newcomer, Darin Redmon and after a quick clean-up racing resumed.   Gerstner, in the “Shady Grady Racing” hot rod gave chase to Ward but when the dust settled the rundown had Ward at the front followed by Gerstner, Brown, Smith and Hutchens completing the top five.   Modified “legend”, Jamie Tomaino finished sixth with Gary Putnam, Daniel Yates, Mike Norman and Redmon rounding out the top ten.   Tom Buzze and Zach Brewer were early retirees.

The top six finishers from race one were inverted putting Smith on the “pole” after Tomaino decided to drop to the rear due to some lingering brake issues.   It was a John Smith parade for the first forty laps with Gerstner, Brown and Ward trading paint while trying to unseat Smith from the point.   A late race restart saw Smith spin his tires at the drop of the green and that was all it took to send Gerstner on his way to his second 2018 win and a 21 point lead in series standings.   Brown finished second with Smith, Ward, Hutchens, Putnam, Yates, Norman, Tomaino and Redmon completing the top ten.  

Rock Harris survived a long night in the tech shed to claim the win in the “602 Super Limited Tour” feature.   Pole winner Harris had things his way but the race for the runner-up spot was a barn burner.   Ryan Robertson spent most of the race firmly in control of second spot but some late race problems allowed the battle behind him to catch him eventually leading to a last lap spin that allowed fourteen year old Austin Harris to claim the runner-up spot making it a big night for the Harris family.   Kirk Sheets finished third with Matt Henely and Grayson ward in tow.   Chase Robertson finished sixth with Wesley Thompson, Ryan Robertson, Cory Rose and Bryant Robertson completing the top ten.

Robbie Brewer continued his domination of the Lowder Construction “602 Modified Series” by winning the pole and the feature for the division.   The win was Brewers fifth this year.   He was followed to the stripe by Zach Brewer, Donnie Martin, Cody Norman, Richard Trotter, Rich Hunter and Deal Lowder.

Like Rock Harris, Dean Lowder had to survive the tech shed to claim the win in the Caraway Speedway Limited late Model feature.   Lowder outran Coy Beard for the win with Daniel Schdadt in third.   Mack Little, John Bradley, Christian Joyce, Michael Caudill, fast qualifier,   Buddy Allred, Brian Rose and Jessica Cann rounded out the top ten.

Dylan Ward buried a strong field of cars to take the “pole award” and the win for the “special” event for the Bowman Gray Sportsman cars.   Ward bested the 2018 Sportsman Division Champion, Kevin Neal, Tommy Neal, Sack Ore, Michael Adams, Casey Kepley, Jeff Garrison, Bryan Sykes and David Adams.

Fast qualifier, Johnny Baker, drove through the field to claim the win in the Mini Stock Feature besting A. J. Sanders for the win.   Mark Baker finished third followed by Adam Thomas, Patrick Mullen, D. J. Dean, Michael Lowery, Jimmy Cooper and Chelsea Adkins.

Gregory Williams won the pole and the race in the speedways UCAR division feature.   The 12 lapper was full of excitement and close action and wrapped up a great 53rd Anniversary night.   Williams was chased to the line by Guy Bralley, Darel Martin, Doug Harris, Gary Dillard, Zachary Bralley, Darel Martin, Jr., Steven Collins, Tommy Raino, Allen Vance, Sammy Price and Jason Richmond.

The next event at Caraway Speedway is Monday, September 3rd.   The “Labor Day Classic” features racing for the Caraway Limited Late Models, the Bowman Gray Sportsman, Chargers, Mini Stocks, the 602 Modifieds and UCARS.   Grandstands open at 3:00 PM and racing gets under way at 5:00 PM.
