July 20, 2019 - Hightower Visits Victory Lane in Winged Mod at Chatham
Mechanical issues and even significant, late-race damage couldn’t keep Brandon Hightower from racing to his first Winged Modified win of the 2019 season on Saturday night.

The Louisiana racer drove his Advanced Specialized Carriers LLC No. B52 FV Recycling/ Cane River Brewing Winged Modified to the feature win at Chatham Speedway. It was his second overall victory of 2019.

“Honestly, I can’t believe we were able to get the win. We battled a magneto problem all night, which left me with no drive off the corner. Then at one point we got hit by the second-place car, which bent the front radius rods, panhard bar and ruined the wing,” Hightower revealed. “Even with all of that damage somehow we were able to drive away from the field to get the win. God sure gave me a blessing to pick up another win in the same car that I won my first race with years ago.

“I want to say a very special thanks to my dad. This car is his puppy, and it means the world to me to get to drive it.”
