Picks Up Fifth Win On Southern Modified Tour

 

SOUTH BOSTON, Va. – Ted Christopher traveled south to Virginia and picked up a NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour victory in the South Boston 150 on Sunday at South Boston Speedway.

Christopher outdueled George Brunnhoelzl III, who won the first two Whelen Southern Modified Tour events in 2011, to earn yet another win in his storied career. Christopher, who won the season-opening Icebreaker last weekend in Thompson, Conn., on the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour, collected his fifth career win on the Southern Tour.

 

Christopher started 17th in the field set by points after qualifying was rained out on Saturday due to inclement weather.  He knew he had a car capable of winning after the Sunday practice session, and wasn’t too worried about having to start toward the back of the field.

 

“The car was good in practice and our times were so consistent. I knew if we stayed the same on new tires, we would have a chance to work our way up to the front,” Christopher said. “When we got to the front, I was able to get into a rhythm and was able to hold (Brunnhoelzl) off there at the end to get the win. Today was fun.”

 

The field, set by owner’s points per the rulebook, had the 2010 championship-winning No. 1 Capital Bank/Patterson’s Brand Hot Dog Chili Ford on the pole position. However, Lee Jeffreys was behind the wheel instead of Burt Myers, the Tour’s defending champion driver.

 

Myers was injured in a practice crash Friday afternoon preparing to compete in a super modified race in North Carolina and was not able to participate in Sunday’s race.

 

Former Tour champion L.W. Miller took the lead from Jeffreys on the opening lap and the pair swapped the lead on three occasions before Miller got the upper hand on Lap 24. Miller led for the next eight circuits before he was forced to pit road to diagnose a problem with his No. 36 Speedco/Lucas Oil Chevrolet.

 

Christopher, meanwhile, moved up steadily through the field and was inside the top  five by Lap 20. Christopher, then had to deal with Zach Brewer who looked very strong early on after Miller was forced to pit.

 

Brewer led a race-high 66 laps while Christopher got into to position to make a move. Christopher was able to pass Brewer’s No. 11 McDonald’s Chevrolet on Lap 99 and never trailed again. For Brewer, he was still smiling after the race.

 

“We are getting so close to a win,” he said. “We had another strong top-three run and that is what you have to do. Be consistently up front, so when the breaks go your way, you are there to take advantage of them and get a win. My thanks to the Harvey family for their support, we are going to get a trophy real soon.”

 

Brewer finished third followed by Tim Brown and John Smith. The rest of the top-10 was made up of Frank Fleming, Jason Myers, Jeffreys, Patrick Emerling and Darryl Lacks.

 

The race was slowed seven times by caution covering 33 laps. The race lead changed hands six times involving four drivers.

 

Brunnhoelzl maintained his lead in the point standings and now leads Smith by 75 points. The NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour will be in action next on Saturday, April 23 at Caraway Speedway in Sophia, N.C.
