Haven't found race report yet. But here is preview article from July 14, 1950 edition of the Statesville Daily Record.

Flock Brothers Try To Put Stop To Baker Streak

The Flock brothers—three strong—will be out to check the victory march of Charlotte's own Buck Baker in the championship modified races at the Southern States fairgrounds track Friday night.

Fonty and Bob, both hailing from Atlanta, have filed their entries for the Friday night program here, and both will be driving cars entered by Frank Christian, popular Atlanta sportsman.

Fonty will be driving Christian's No. 14 Ford, and he'll be seeking revenge for the last lap defeat handed him by Baker in the feature race here two weeks ago. Fonty led the race for 24 laps, but on the final lap Baker streaked by to take first place in one of the most sensational events of the season.

Bob will be driving Christian's new No. 7 Ford, and the oldest of the three Flock brothers always ranks as a top threat in any league.

Tim, the youngest of the three brothers, will come over from Winston-Salem to drive Taft Sloan's No. 91 Ford in what should be another top entry.

In addition to the three Flocks, the field will include such stars as Buddy Shuman, Charlotte; Bill Snowden, St. Augustine, Fla.; Bugs Raper, Jimmy Lewallen and Pap White, High Point; Frank Mundy, Atlanta: Joe Eubanks and Cotton Owens, Spartanburg, S. C.; Doug Cox, Greenville, S. C., and many other top ranking performers.
