Tim Brown made modified history Friday with his win in the Midway Mobile Storage 100 at Bowman Gray Stadium in Winston-Salem, N.C.

The win was Brown’s 74th in the Brad’s Golf Cars modified division, breaking a tie with Junior Miller for the all-time modified wins total.

Brown and his No. 83 took the lead on Lap 62 and led the rest of the event’s 100 laps. Brown, who heads the suspension department at Michael Waltrip Racing, lives in Tobaccoville, N.C and grew up attending races at the quarter-mile track that opened in 1949. He first started racing there in 1991.

“Until it happened, I hadn’t really thought about it,” Brown said after the win. “From where I sat in the car at the start/finish line, I could see where I sat as a kid growing up and just wanting to race here. Not even wanting to win, just wanting to race. It’s just awesome. When I open that program, it’ll just be my name.”

Brown won again Saturday, winning the NASCAR Hall of Fame 100 to make his win total 75.

To celebrate Brown’s record, MWR held a luncheon at its shop in Cornelius, N.C. on Tuesday.
