FLEMINGTON SPEEDWAY - CHALLENGE OF CHAMPIONS - OCTOBER 3, 1999

The WYNN's K-CEE DISTRIBUTING DRIVER Eric Beers and the #12 WYNN's K-CEE DISTRIBUTING Modified started out the day in awesome fashion. In the second heat race for the 100 lap Unlimited Modified Challenge of Champions Race, Eric lead his heat form lap one to the last lap when he had to shut off the motor because the oil pump belt had fallen off and the oil pressure dropped. Eric finished 6th and was qualified for the race. Rather than ruin the motor in the #12 WYNN's K-CEE DISTRIBUTING Modified Eric hopped into the #94 Modified which he has driven during the year and was also put into victory lane on this day by team driver Adam Horwith by Adam winning his heat race in impressive fashion. Because of the change in driver the #94 was slated to start 17th. WYNN's K-CEE DISTRIBUTING Driver Eric Beers put on a show. By lap #69 WYNN's K-CEE DISTRIBUTING Driver Eric Beers was in second place going for the lead. He was the fastest car out there. On Lap 70 while going to the outside of the leader the third place car decided he was going to get under Eric and try to move up as well. It looked like the third place driver went into turn 4 just a little to hard - he bobble and hit the #94 in the left rear. Eric was sent spinning - straightened out the car and kept going now in the 12th position. With only 30 laps to go and flat spotted tires Eric made his way back up to finish in the 7th position. Many fans in the stands were heard after the race saying that if the WYNN's K-CEE DISTRIBUTING Driver Eric Beers was not spun he would have been the car to beat because it looked like he had the field covered. But that's racing ! ! !

FLEMINGTON SPEEDWAY - CHALLENGE OF CHAMPIONS - OCTOBER 2, 1999

The WYNN's K-CEE DISTRIBUTING DRIVER Eric Beers and the #91 WYNN's K-CEE DISTRIBUTING Modified started out the weekend in awesome fashion. They went out in the 4th heat for the 100 lap Penn Jersey Challenge of Champions and led from start to finish. The race itself went according to plan. WYNN's K-CEE DISTRIBUTING driver Eric Beers was saving his tires while still running in second place. He was waiting for the right time to go for the lead and still have enough tires left to hold off the rest of the field. On about lap 50 of the 100 lap event the WYNN's K-CEE DISTRIBUTING #91 began to experience a problem with the head gasket, probably caused by the red flag conditions that existed earlier in the race. So rather than ruin the motor Eric brought the #91 WYNN's K-CEE DISTRIBUTING Modified into the pits and was credited with a 27th place finish. The disappointment abounded as everyone their knew that the #91 was the car to beat.

Four or Five Cautions slowed the feature allowing the K-CEE Distributing, Wynn's #91 to pick his way through the field slowly. Once the race went green the K-CEE Distributing, Wynn's #91 started to reel in the leaders. With 10 laps to go Eric was in second place with the leader, the #11 Steve Whitt- who has eight feature wins at Flemington and is in the hunt for a NASCAR Regional Racing Series Title, a half a track ahead. It was obvious that the K-CEE Distributing, Wynn's #91 was starting to reel in the leader. On the last lap Eric was not given a chance to go for the lead as the caution flag flew resulting in a hard fought second place finish. The jubilee of such a good run would soon vanish. During the post race weigh in it was discovered that the K-CEE Distributing, Wynn's #91 was 7 pounds light. Not until the car was brought back to the K-CEE Distributing, Wynn's #91 Garage was it discovered that three quarters of a 36 pound weight broke off during the event. Again Eric Beers gave notice that the K-CEE Distributing, Wynn's Team is the one to watch when on the track. ADDENDUM: The above story is still true however in the weeks that followed is was discovered that Eric was actually under weight according to the rules that Flemington Speedway should have been following because this was a special Penn Jersey Modified Racing Series Race and not a regular Saturday night race.
