Wins season finale to claim Whelen Southern Modified crown
Charlotte, NC — Burt Myers led all but one lap in winning the UNOH Southern Slam 150 Thursday night and, in the process, leapfrogged three title contenders to claim the NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour championship.
It’s the first NASCAR touring series championship for the Walnut Cove, N.C., driver. He had finished in the top four in points in four of the previous five years, including a runner-up finish in the tour’s inaugural season in 2005.
This season, the tour’s all-time leader in Coors Light Pole Awards and top fives used a strong run to close out the year with the one honor that has eluded him.
