SOPHIA, N.C. – Two of the top Modified drivers in the country showed their skills Saturday night in the Southern Modified Racing Series (SMRS) Twin-50s at Caraway Speedway as Tim Brown, of Tobaccoville, and Burt Myers, of Walnut Cove, scored the victories. 
                The field for the first 50-lap feature was set based on Precision Spindle qualifying during the afternoon with Brown grabbing the pole position.  While Brown led the entire distance, he had a strong early challenge from Jeremy Gerstner, of Wesley Chapel, Fla., who started fourth. 
                Brown rolled to his second victory of the season with Gerstner settling for second.  Brandon Ward, of Winston-Salem, was third with Burt Myers and Concord’s Bobby Measmer Jr. completing the top five.
                The win for Brown was his second of the season and second-career SMRS triumph. 
                An inversion of eight from the first feature results put Jason Myers, also of Walnut Cove, on the pole for the second feature.  Jason led early, but ended up in a battle with his brother Burt, who started fifth, for the win.  Late in the race, on a restart, Burt got the best of his brother and rolled to the lead and victory.
                Jason Myers was second with Brown completing a solid night in third.  Gary Putnam of Concord was fourth with Ward rounding out the top five.
                The win for Burt Myers was his fourth of the season and sixth overall SMRS victory, moving him into sole possession as the driver with the most wins in the 21 events the series has hosted since starting last year.
                The teams get little rest as action continued with round 10 of the 12-race season Saturday night at Concord Speedway.  Earlier this season (April 1) at Concord it was Brandon Ward scoring the win.
