Eric Beers and the Horwith Beers Racing team headed to Mahoning Valley Speedway, Saturday night August 26th. There was another full pit area of Modifieds with 27 signed in. Eric started last in the K-CEE Distributing, Wynn's, Brown Daub Dealer, Horwith Freightliner, Hoosier Tire NASCAR Modified #94 and finished third in his heat race. When the feature time came Eric lined up in the 15th starting position. The first half of the race was uneventful as Eric missed an accident and had worked his way up to the 10th position. Just after halfway an 11 car pile up in turn three also collected the #94. Eric went into the pits and was able to make it out before the green flag flew. Unlike last week, when he came back to win after a major accident, the car was just a little off and Eric settled for a 14th place finish. The good news is Jason Beers finished 2nd in the Street Stock Feature keeping his 2nd place spot in the tight points race. As soon as the races were complete the Team loaded up the #12 Kocher Motorsports, JMC Investments, Shir Ray Inn Modified into the trailer and headed up to Wyoming County International for the Sunoco Race of Champions Modified Tour Event. Eric Started the Race in the 14th position and was up as high as fifth when with 5 laps to go had a tire going down relegating him to an 8th place finish.
