Madhouse -- hv post
With Burt Myers and Jon Boy within striking distance, Tim Brown needs a strong finish to win his record tying 8th Bowman Gray Championship. Jon Boy contemplates leaving the Miller team and racing on his own next season. Jason's struggles are making it difficult for him to maintain his race team beyond this season.
The rookie, Jonathan Brown, made some new enemies last week when he spun-out both Tim Brown and Burt Myers to take the checkered flag. But, news of an unexpected tragedy leaves Brown to search for meaning in the shop and behind the wheel as tries to close in on his first championship at the legendary Bowman Gray Stadium.
Jonathon Brown is frustrated that his sponsor won't put his money where his mouth is when it comes to his 53 car. Puddin' bets him that he won't even qualify in the top 6 this week. Can Jon Boy find the resources to get his car where he wants it to be and does he have what it takes to compete on the same level as Burt Myers and Tim Brown?
The burden of racing at Bowman Gray explodes when Tim Brown yells expletives to the crowd after a win. The entire community is on edge waiting to hear Gray Garrison's disciplinary action toward The Rocket. Chris Fleming is involved in a possible career ending accident.
Burt Myers's bad engine & Junior Miller's faltering health put a wrench in their racing futures. A 16-year old driver appears on the scene to carry the torch once held by his fallen father. The veterans find themselves in turmoil while the rookie looks to kickoff a new era at Bowman Gray Stadium. With a 100 lap, Double Points race coming up, they're ALL worried that Tim Brown will kick the door closed and steal the season.
Midway through the hot summer season and having to balance work, family and racing is almost too much to handle for the race teams. Jason is be forced to choose between racing or making it to his daughter's dance recital. Junior exerts his frustration on a rental trailer. On the track, Jon Boy's childhood dream of battling The Rocket, Tim Brown, blooms as Bowman Gray's newest rivalry.
Frustrations are high in the Myers garage as Burt and Jason have a considerable amount of work to do on their cars after last week's race. The S & R garage is on easy street after a win by rookie Jonathan Brown and Puddin' invites the boys to a wine tasting to celebrate. A call from the Myers garage to S & R raises the tension level to a boiling point and the threat of violence hangs over the stadium. With everyone else distracted, will Tim Brown coast his way to another win this week?
This week is a turning point for the drivers of Bowman Gray Stadium. It's mid-season, and Tim Brown has opened up a sizeable lead in the chase for the championship, while Burt Myers's frustration over his constant mechanical problems continues to grow. This week's double point race is an opportunity for Myers to take the lead from Brown, and Myers is determined do whatever it takes to do it.
The Myers clan has won a victory, but Junior Miller has his sights set on revenge. Only problem is: the Red 69's leaking water, and may not be ready for Saturday night. Will The King get his motor ready in time to settle an old family score? Meanwhile Chris Fleming turns old friends into new enemies and Burt Myers fills up on luck at the gas station.
After being bullied by Junior Miller for the last time, Jason Myers has had enough. But if he's going to stand up to the King he'll need to first step outside his brother's shadow. Does Jason have what it takes to hold his own at The Madhouse? Meanwhile, Ben Brown finds the right forum to challenge baby brother Tim, and Chris Fleming seeks some help from a local legend.
A full moon descends upon The Madhouse and hot tempers flare. Still upset from the banging he received from Burt, Tim Brown weighs his options at retaliation while his grandpa hunts down some four-leaved clovers that will hopefully bring Tim some luck in the upcoming race. Jason and Burt recall their grandfather's fatal full moon crash as Chris Fleming mocks superstition. Junior hopes to plant a Myers.
After the most embarrassing wreck of his career, fifty-eight year old Junior Miller is worried about his eyes and agrees to visit the doctor. Tim takes a break from the shop to help throw his wife a surprise birthday party while Burt gets a stern warning from his Uncle Frank to keep a close eye on Tim. Not happy with second place, an inspired Chris Fleming puts it all on the line for a new pair of shocks.
