L.W. MILLER WINS SATURDAY NIGHT AT CARAWAY SPEEDWAY

CARAWAY, N.C. (April 21, 2007) -- NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour driver L.W. Miller passed the race's dominant car of Jason Myers with nine laps remaining to score the victory in the Night of Southern Modifieds 150 at Caraway Speedway.

L.W. Miller's win was his second victory in the first four races of the 2007 NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour season.

Miller used a bump-and-run move on Myers which left the youngest of the Myers' brothers racing family not very happy with his NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour cohort.

"I just have to thanks Jimmy and Danny Baker for putting me in such a good car as we had this evening and this was just a great night of racing at Caraway," L.W. Miller said. "I basically just rode around most of the night until a caution came out which let me catch up to Jason. I got underneath of him and kind of rode him up the track a little bit which is how you have to pass people on a short track and he knows that.

"Hopefully Jason will calm down a little bit. I hate it for him but that's just the way you have to race in the last 10 laps. I hate he feels the way he does, but that's just a part of racing."

Jason Myers was clearly dejected at the late turn of events.

"You win some -- you lose some," Myers said. "This is the best run I've ever had at Caraway. If you'd have told me last week that I'd come to Caraway and finish I'd have been tickled to death. To lead 140 laps and then get done wrong there at the very end is pretty tough to take. Sometimes stuff like this can come back to bite you. To finish second on a night like this is pretty disgusting."

There were some hard feelings after the race between not only Jason Myers towards L.W. Miller, but also Tim Brown and Junior Miller who had a run-in during the race which spilled over to an invitation to the NASCAR hauler for a chat with Tour director Mark Suddreth.

The top-five finishers on Saturday night were L.W. Miller, Jason Myers, Burt Myers, Junior Miller and Frank Fleming.

The NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour returns to action July 6 at Caraway Speedway.
