HICKORY, N.C. — Zach Brewer followed the leaders into the pits on lap 55, but they followed him across the finish line Saturday night at Hickory Motor Speedway.

The Winston-Salem, N.C., driver overcame several late-race restarts and a personal loss to win the KOMA Unwind Modified Madness Series American Freedom 125 at Hickory Saturday night.

“That’s the easiest race I have driven in a long time,” Brewer said. “I’ve got a great crew and surrounded myself with great people. It’s just an awesome night.”

Tim Brown — who turned a 14.545-second lap in qualifying — led the 20 modifieds to the green and the first caution on lap two. After the restart, Brown faded and former NASCAR Sprint Cup driver Jeremy Mayfield took command. The second caution came on lap 55, when officials reported debris on the track. That sent Mayfield, along with most of the field, to pit road.

“I was going to do what the leaders did when they came in,” said Brewer, who started second. “I thought everybody had passed on coming in but evidently the pits weren’t open yet. When they dove in, I was like ‘Hey we’re coming in.’”

He took a right-rear tire and restarted in the 10th position. He was fourth by lap 80.
