Northampton, PA. . . . Eric Beers and the Horwith Racing Sunoco Race Fuels #19 NASCAR Modified and Small Block Modified Traveled to Tioga Speedway, Binghampton, NY for the Champions Challenge Weekend.
On Saturday October 5, Eric won his Small Block Modified Heat and then won the NASCAR Modified Heat as well.
The drivers redrew for position on Sunday. Eric started the Small Block race 7th and the Nascar Modified Race 12th.
Eric was in the lead by lap 17 in the 50 Lap Small Block Modified Race. Eric did a great job of maneuvering through traffic as only Eric and the 2nd and 3rd place finishers were left on the lead lap. Eric led laps 18 - 50.
As victory lane ceremonies Eric was in the #19 Horwith Racing Sunoco Race Fuels #19 NASCAR Modified. Eric started 12th and held onto that a top ten position for the first 25 laps. Then he hooked up and avoided an accident to get into 2nd place. On lap 56 Eric Pitted for Sunoco Race Fuel and right side Tires. Eric was working his way through the field on the outside when a competitor came up into Eric and sent Eric just a little airborne. Eric made a great save but the car was not exactly the same. Through sheer determination and some good moves Eric finished the race 3rd.
The team now has the last few remaining races left. Martinsville Speedway October 19 and Thompson Speedway on October 27 will close out the NASCAR FEATHERLITE MODIFIED TOUR Season.
