It looked like a night when the North would prove dominant on the quarter-mile at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Burt Myers of Walnut Cove, N.C. inherited the lead from Preece, of Berlin, with 15 laps remaining and went on to win the NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour UNOH Southern Slam 150 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Kyle Ebersole of Hummelstown, Pa. was second and George Brunnhoelzl III of West Babylon, N.Y. third.

The third place clinched a third consecutive series championship and fourth title in the last five years for Brunnhoelzl.

Preece, the current Whelen Modified Tour points leader, won the pole for the event and looked on cruise control to victory before blowing his motor on lap 135. Myers was a distant second to Preece when the issues began.

“I thought the caution was coming out,” Myers said. “My spotter said [Preece] was blowing up. We had a great car, we just missed it a little bit. First time I’ve been here with a car besides my Bowman Gray [Stadium] car and we were a little skeptical about how this car was going to perform. And these guys worked their butts off. All year they’ve given me everything and it paid off tonight. It’s easy for me and these guys to stand here and take the glory, but God is good son, God is good.”

It was the third victory of the season for Myers, the 2010 series champion.
