Brown Earns Caraway Win, Loftin Increases Lead

ASHEBORO, N.C. - Tim Brown earned his first in in nearly a year, leading the final 26 laps Saturday night, to capture the Whelen Southern Modified Tour 150 at Caraway Speedway.

Brian Loftin (No. 23 L&R Transmission/QMF Solutions Chevrolet) finished second and increased his points lead when his closest challenger L.W. Miller finished 18th. Loftin leads Miller by 79 points and Brown by 87.

Brown (No. 83 Hayes Jewelers/Triad Auto Sales Chevrolet) qualified sixth and started third after the post-qualifying redraw. Miller qualified third, redrew the top spot, and led the first 66 laps before being slowed by a flat tire and penalty. Brandon Ward took over the lead on lap 67 and led until Brown passed him.

It was Brown's fourth career win and first since Sept. 15, 2007. Following Loftin, Andy Seuss, Frank Fleming and Brian King rounded out the top five.

Earlier in the day, Burt Myers earned his third Coors Light Pole Award of the season and tour-record 16th overall.
