ASHEBORO, N.C. – Andy Seuss found himself in familiar territory Saturday night – Victory Lane at Caraway Speedway.
Nearly three weeks after winning at the .455-mile oval for the first time since Oct. 2011, Seuss was right back there after winning the Zooland 150. It was the Hampstead, N.H., driver’s eighth win at the track and the 14th of his tour career, which gives him sole possession of second place on the all-time wins list.
Second-place finisher George Brunnhoelzl III – the career leader with 20 Southern Modified victories – extended his lead in the point standings to 30 on Kyle Ebersole with two races remaining. Brunnhoelzl was right there with Seuss, who led a race-high 88 laps, down the stretch but could never mount a solid challenge for the lead. Brunnhoelzl is looking for his third straight tour title and fourth overall.
John Smith matched his season-best finish of third, which he recorded his last time at Caraway on Sept. 8, while J.R. Bertuccio and Jason Myers finished in fourth and fifth, respectively.
Danny Bohn, Bryan Dauzat, Burt Myers, Gary Putnam and Mike Norman completed the top 10.
Burt Myers won his second consecutive Coors Light Pole Award and 26th of his career to extend his career mark in that category.
The NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour returns to the track Saturday, Oct. 5 for the G-Oil 150 at Southern National Raceway Park in Kenly, N.C., to make up a race that was postponed due to weather on Sept. 21.
