Junior Miller in his famous #69 NASCAR Modified with win number 70 at Bowman Gray Stadium. Another record for the veteran!


Jerry Helmes races in the inline 6 cylinder division at Bowman Grey Stadium. He won the first race of his career in 2009 as a second year racer. Jerry states “We did it running a Salter Engine. This is only our second year racing and we won at one of the toughest tracks to win in one of the hardest divisions – street stock. Brian Salter has really helped us with the great power and reliability and is always there for us. Thanks Brian.”

The awesome Wicked Witch of the South driven by James Berrier, is powered by a custom Salter built 605 cubic inch big block Chevy. It is a single carb, naturally aspirated, 23 degree head engine making nearly 1200 horsepower on gasoline alone. James has won over 10 races and over 20 top 5 in 2009. Way to go James!

Burt Myers in the #1 NASCAR modified. Congratulations Burt!

The #18 of Tim Vaden is certainly no stranger to the winners circle. With multiple wins and many top 5’s he is in the who’s who of street stock racing. Way to go Tim!

The #53 Modified driven by Jonathan Brown has visited the winner circle many times in 2009. He is an up and coming driver with a lot of heart. Great job Jonathan!
