WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. - Danny Bohn got his second career NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour victory, but it wasn't without drama.
Bohn managed to keep his Modified rolling in the right direction following a last-lap incident and drove the No. 65 Rustoleum/Cedar Peaks Ent/Ray Evernham Enterprises Chevrolet under the yellow-checkered flag to claim the Strutmasters.com 199 at Bowman Gray Stadium.
Bohn, who had the fastest car in practice and won the Coors Light Pole Award earlier in the day, dominated the race.
But contact between lapped cars after the white flag came out almost collected the 26-year-old Freehold, N.J., driver. Bohn went around but got the car righted immediately as the caution flag ended the race.
Bohn's previous career win came in 2012 at Caraway Speedway during his rookie year.
In the melee, Cole Powell took second and Luke Fleming third. Spencer Davis and points leader Andy Seuss rounded out the top five.
Kyle Ebersole, who was trying to overtake Bohn in the closing laps, wound up getting knocked back to sixth. Gary Putnam, Joe Ryan Osborne, AJ Winstead and Burt Myers completed the top 10.
The NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour will race next on Aug. 20 in the Bush's Beans 150 at Bristol Motor Speedway in the annual combination race with the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour.
