Race Results

A pair of wild celebrations kicked off moments after the checkered flag fell on Thursday’s Bad Boy Off Road Southern Slam 150 at Charlotte Motor Speedway, as Ryan Preece stormed to his third career NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour win and Burt Myers clinched his second series championship.

Preece passed George Brunnhoelzl III on the outside and pulled away to win the 150-lap race by 0.945 seconds. Brunnhoelzl finished second with James Civali third, Danny Bohn fourth and Bobby Measmer Jr. fifth.

"We had a really good race car," Preece said. "We have had a lot of heartbreakers here. When that caution came out with 15 to go, I thought to myself, ‘I hope I saved enough here.’ This car seemed like it liked longer runs. It took two or three laps to fire off but that’s what my buddy Gary Putnam (car owner) is good for, making the car last."

Myers finished sixth to cap off his first title season since 2010.

“There is something about this Whelen Southern Modified Tour championship that’s just a notch above the rest," Myers said. "When you get presented with that ring, it’s just a special feeling. Even though we knew we basically had to just start the race, it still feels just as good as having to win the race to get here."

Two-time defending series champion Andy Seuss was seventh with Kyle Bonsignore eighth, Jason Myers ninth and Trey Hutchens III 10th.
