Ryan Preece won the Southern Slam 150 at Charlotte Motor Speedway for the NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour. This is Preece’s third career win at Charlotte Motor Speedway, and his first win of 2016.


“it’s pretty special. We’ve had a couple heartbreakers here. I am really happy to be here in victory lane,” said Preece in post-race victory lane interview.


George Brunnhoelzl III finished second, James Civali finished third, Danny Bohn finished fourth, and Bobby Measmer Jr. rounded out the top-five.


Burt Myers has won the Whelen Southern Modified Championship. Myers has three wins, nine top-fives, and 10 top-10 finishes during the season to beat out Andy Seuss. This is his second championship.


“There is just something about this series that ranks hire than anything else. There is this special feeling. It feels just as good as if I had to win the race like 2010,” said Myers in post-race media availability.


The race saw an average speed of 45.862 mph. The time of the race was 50 minutes and 38 seconds.


The Southern Slam 150 from Charlotte Motor Speedway will air on NBCSN on October 14th at 3:30 p.m. EST.

I am 19 years old from Atlanta, GA. I have been following motorsports since I was born. Motorsports has been "passed down" in my family. I am named after NASCAR Hall of Famer, William Caleb Yarborough, also known as Cale. Growing up in the southeast, racing was something that was a Sunday tradition after church. What an honor it is to share that passion with others.
