During a NASCAR Wheelen Modified Tour Race, Burt Myers got back at his rival in the most creative way possible: he threw a bucket of Speedy Dry at him

What’s Happening?

Following an on-track incident at Bowman Gray, NASCAR Wheelen Modified Tour Driver, Burt Myers, lifted a full bucket of Speedy Dry off the safety crew’s truck and launched it at his rival. Talk about payback!

You Need To Know:

  • Bowman Gray Stadium has a reputation for this sort of thing. Crazy things tend to happen there and tempers overflow quite often. This incident started with good hard racing between Burt Myers in the No. 1 and Chris Fleming in the red No. 16. Fleming was on the inside and he ran Myers up out of the groove. With the Modified division being NASCAR’s only open wheel division, it caused considerable damage to Myers car who eventually got up into the wall.
  • This is why I love Flo Racing. Most, if not all NASCAR Modified races are untelevised. Back when the SPEED Channel existed, they’d show a tape delayed race on a random Wednesday from a week or longer before. With Flo, you get to watch all the craziness series like this one can provide and you get to watch it live. There’s literally a race nearly every single night on Flo Racing! It’s a paradise for race fans.
  • Fans either loved or hated this news with some reddit users joking that it probably sparked a fight in the grandstands. This is old school, grassroots racing at its finest and, even with tempers overflowing on the track, in the grandstands, or even online, everybody’s having a good time.

The Main Characters

Burt Myers in the black and white No. 1 car and Chris Fleming in the red No. 16 are the main characters of this story. Below is a clip of the on-track incident between the two drivers as well as the footage of Myers throwing Speedy Dry on Fleming’s car. It’s a sight to behold.

In The Stands

Bowman Gray seems to be a place for rough housing! Desperate-Repeat-835 suggests just cutting the cord and putting a WWE ring in the center of it. Hey, man, I’m occasionally up for some “sports entertainment”.

Packhammer24 says that the craziest sh*t he’s even seen happened at Bowman Gray! Man, I gotta go there to catch a race sometime.

treviscraft says that with this incident, their Flo Racing subscription has paid for itself.

Yes, tuss11agee, the way the bucket just sits on Fleming’s bumper bars is absolutely hilarious!

albeenoh is all for Bowman Gray continuing to up the craziness meter.

You’re right, Evotona500, it probably did start a fight in the grandstands. Then they probably all went off and had a beer together. Good times.

Yes, it does appear to be that time of the year again, cwhisler12.

Yeah, he kind of is.

What did you think of that, racing fans? Have you ever seen anything like it? Are you thinking of subscribing to Flo Racing now? Let us know in the comments!
