Northampton, PA . . . . . Northampton, PA's Sunoco Race Fuels, Horwith Freighliner, Wynn's Oils, Brown Daub NASCAR Modified Driver Eric Beers started the first feature of the evening in the 10th position. It was a slow start to the 30 lap race but Eric began his move to the front. Slowly he picked off one car at a time as it seemed the car was coming to him. Eric made his way up to 2nd and he seemed to be faster going into the turn but slower going out of the turn behind winner Russ Frantz. That point was reinforced after the races were over when it was revealed that the 110 Car of Frantz only had one bolt left in the rear end casing and that the gear oil was leaking out during the race. Eric's car looked like it was put through a car wash with oil when he pulled in the pits.

The second feature Eric could not have painted a better picture than if Van Gogh was behind the wheel. No Heat races were run so Eric was handicapped to the 14th starting position. From the drop of the green flag this guy was on the move. Within two laps Eric was in the top ten. Five more laps later he was in the top five. Several moves inside then outside then inside - The car was hooked. It was fun watching the race and Eric anticipating his next move. Several cautions put Eric in different restart positions making the race interesting until about lap 20 when he went to the lead position and never looked back. A good win for the team following a two month win drought that saw them at Pocono Mountain Speedway every Saturday and several tour races and special open Modified Shows.
