Northampton, PA. . . . Northampton, PA NASCAR Modified Driver, Eric Beers and the Horwith Beers Racing team headed to Mahoning Valley Speedway, Saturday night August 19th and came home with Eric's 11th Asphalt Modified Feature win of the season. There was a great field of 27 Modifieds on hand. Eric started 7th in the K-CEE Distributing, Wynn's, Brown Daub Dealership, Horwith Freightliner, Hoosier Tire NASCAR Modified #94 and finished a tough fifth.
The action in the heat races and the B-Main was better than some of the features the team has attended this year. Eric was handicapped to start in the 14th starting position. There were several early caution periods with Eric moving up to the 11th spot when the big wreck in turn one occurred. Several of the cars running in the front got together and collecting cars throughout the field. Eric was one of them. He took a hard hit in the front and the back. Things did not look good at this point as the car was bent and would not start. After getting a push start and testing the steering Eric decided not to go into the pits. The restart had Eric in the 12th position.
This is when the show really started. Eric used several moves to pass 2 and 3 cars cars at a time to work his way up to the second position where he and veteran Bill Teel put on a show for several laps until Eric was able to use the inside lane to get to the front and head to victory lane for the 11th time this 2000 season.
Jason Beers finished a tough 10th but put on a great show in the Enduro Race to finish in the top 10.
This Saturday night Eric Beers will return to Mahoning Valley Speedway and compete Sunday afternoon at Wyoming County International, Parry, NY which is a Sunoco Race of Champions Tour Point Event.
