Three-State Flyers: Myers Continues Dream Season With Potoma Win

Doug Watson, track report

BUDDS CREEK, Md. - July 23. Greencastle Pa.’s D.J. Myers continued his personal best season with his second late model feature win of the 2011 campaign in last Saturday’s 38th anniversary event at Potomac speedway. Run under the Three State Flyers Series banner, the win for Myers was his 10th overall victory this season aboard his Greg Gunter owned, PPM chassis no.70J.

After scoring a win in the dash, Myers started on the pole for the 35-lap main and beat fellow front row starter Kyle Lear into the first turn. Myers would then go on lead every lap of the event unchallenged for his fifth career late model win at Potomac.
 
As Myers led, the race for second was a dandy. Keith Jackson and Kyle Lear raced hard for second and third for much of the event before Lear secured the spot for good on lap 14. However, Lear was no match for Myers, and would settle for runner-up money. Jackson hung on for third, eighth starting Jason Covert took fourth,  and Daryl Hills would complete the top five.
 
“I knew if we could beat Kyle (Lear) into the first turn, we’d be okay tonight,” said Myers in Potomac’s victory lane. “We tried some things on the car last night at Winchester that we thought would help here tonight, because we knew the track would tack rubber being as hot as it is, and the changes worked really good for us.”
 
 Myers reflected on his superb 10-win season to date. “I always told myself if we were lucky to get one a season we were doing pretty good. “ Myers stated. “A lot of racers wait their whole career to get just one, and we’ve been fortunate enough to get ten this year, I just hope we can keep it going.”
