Southern Tour Championship Five Years In The Making
Burt Myers already has a résumé most drivers can only dream about. Numerous track championships and more wins than can be remembered. Now Myers can claim the final piece of the puzzle – a NASCAR touring championship.
Myers will be in Charlotte to take part in the NASCAR Night of Champions Touring Series Gala on Saturday night at the Charlotte Convention Center’s Crown Ballroom, adjacent to the NASCAR Hall of Fame. This championship is part of a trifecta for Myers, who also will celebrate his track title from Bowman Gray Stadium and the North Carolina state championship during the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series awards banquet to be held Friday night also at the NASCAR Hall of Fame.
“I can’t wait for next week,” said Myers from Las Vegas, where he was on hand to participate in the Myers Brothers Luncheon that is named after Billy and Bobby Myers, who were NASCAR competitors in the 1950’s and related to the younger Myers. “We are going to celebrate as a family.”
Although Myers will have his name on the trophy, he is quick to point out he wouldn’t have the title without the help and support of his family and close friends who have been with him a long time.
