Veteran competitor Josh “Country” Myers showed plenty of patience
in the early stages of the EDCO Welding Street Stock feature last Saturday
at Anderson Speedway to record his first victory of the season.
Myers took the early lead but was passed by Jimmy Kirby going down the back
straight with an inside pass entering turn three. The pair was chased
closely by Rickie Tharp.
On the 17th lap, Myers was able to get inside of Kirby entering turn three
and completed the pass on the front straight. Myers took the checkers
followed by Kirby, Tharp, Tyler Marsh and Danny Adams.
Myers set quick time during qualifications followed by Tharp and Billy
VanMeter. VanMeter suffered a flat tire on the warm-up laps for the feature
and was unable to make the repairs in time for the race.
In the heat race, Marsh took the lead at the start and led the entire
distance with Kirby in hot pursuit. Myers climbed from sixth to third
passing first Frankie Oakes and Tharp with outside passes on the back and
Tharp and Oakes rounded out the top five behind Marsh, Kirby and Myers.
