Three-State Flyers: Myers Steps Out at Potomac
 
Doug Watson
 
BUDDS CREEK, Md. - Aug. 6. Greencastle Pa.’s D.J. Myers was victorious in Friday's 40-lap "Gene VanMeter Memorial" at the Potomac Speedway, and the $4000 top prize that went with it. In scoring his third career late model feature win at the track, Myers became the ninth different winner of the season in the 11 races for the division in 2010.
 
Myers quickly showed that he had the car to beat and led every lap of the race, but it was far from an easy win. David Williams, the defending winner of the race, hounded Myers for the first 23 laps before tenth-starting Andy Anderson entered the picture. Anderson swept by Williams to take second on lap 24 and set his sights on Myers. Anderson got close to Myers on several occasions, but could not make the winning pass, finishing second.\
 
“We needed this win in a bad way.” Myers commented. “We’ve really been struggling since speed weeks and I can't thank Greg (Gunter), PPM chassis and Hershey Racing Engines enough for a great car tonight.”
 
Timely caution periods aided Myers in his winning run.
 
"Yeah, It’s nice to have clear track in front of you, but I knew Andy (Anderson) was getting close there towards the end, but I knew we had a good enough car to hold him off,” Myers added.
