WINSTON-SALEM, NC - It was one of the tightest points battles in years at Bowman Gray Stadium in Winston-Salem, NC - but when the dust settled on Saturday, Danny Bohn of Huntersville was the new champion.<br /> <br /> For the last 18 years, the Brad's Golf Cars Modified Series title has belonged to Tim Brown, Burt Myers, or Junior Miller. Entering Saturday night, there was a tight three-way race between three competitors who were each fighting for their first championship. Lee Jeffreys came into Saturday with the points lead, with Jason Myers in second and Danny Bohn just one point under Myers in third.<br /> <br /> Tim Brown of Tobaccoville qualified on the pole and powered into the lead during the initial start. Bohn was the second fastest qualifier and used the first four double-file restarts to try and take over the lead.<br /> <br /> Jason Myers of Walnut Cove and Lee Jeffreys of Wallburg battled for third place on the initial start, and Jeffreys pushed hard on the outside to eventually slip by Myers. Jeffreys needed only a top-four finish to secure the championship, but he began to slowly fade back through the field. Myers was just a position or two behind Bohn and ready to pounce if the moment arrived.<br /> <br /> On lap 81, Brown and Bohn had to navigate through lapped traffic. Bohn saw an opportunity and darted to the inside of Brown to make the pass for the lead.<br /> <br /> "I knew Tim was saving tires, and I knew I had a pretty good car underneath me," said Bohn. "I just looked way ahead and had a feeling for what was going to happen. He left the bottom open, and I put my car there."<br /> <br /> Brown gave a valiant effort to reclaim the lead during the following double-file restarts, but Bohn held strong. A rain delay paused the racing action with just a few laps left, but Bohn came back and took the checkered flag after the track had been dried.<br /> <br /> Jason Myers was bumped out of third by Jonathan Brown of Winston-Salem, and Lee Jeffreys only managed to climb up to sixth
