Southern Mods At Caraway In Final Race Until July   

 

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - One thing is certain entering this Saturday's Parking Lot Maintenance Headquarters 150 at Caraway Speedway, if the action at South Boston last week and Caraway at the season opener is any indication, emotions will be high this weekend.

In the NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour season opener an on-track incident between Andy Seuss and L.W. Miller created a battered car and bruised feelings.

Last Saturday night at South Boston Seuss' teammate George Brunnhoelzl III and Brandon Ward got together battling for the lead, sending Brunnhoelzl into the wall and spinning while Ward went on to record his first career win.

Brunnhoelzl chased Ward down on the cool down lap, but did not make contact with the winner while running beside him.

Seuss has said it isn't over. Who knows what to expect next.

Seuss and Miller raced side-by-side with no incident at South Boston and judging by comments from both Ward and Brunnhoelzl, they basically agreed to what happened - well almost.

"George (Brunnhoelzl) is a great competitor and we were real good on the bottom and I got loose underneath him and he had a run back on the outside and I just got into him. I really hate that that happened," Ward said. "It certainly wasn't intentional."
Brunnhoelzl, while upset on Saturday, later echoed Ward's comments - with a little exception.

"I don't think Brandon intentionally meant to run me into the wall and I know they were hungry to get their first win," Brunnhoelzl said. "But he knew I was out there (on the outside of Ward's car) and at that point as a driver you have a decision to make. You roll out of the throttle or you stay on the throttle and make contact. He choose to stay on the throttle and you saw the end result."

Despite a frustrating finish at South Boston and at the most recent race at Caraway, Brunnhoelzl enters this weekend tied for the points lead and knows there is still a lot of racing to go in the season.

"To have the trouble we have had the past two races and still be tied for the points lead, we are sitting pretty good," Brunnhoelzl added. "The good thing is we know what we need to fix to get back where we need to be for the rest of the season."

Race Notes

Rookies Impressive Again:This year's seven Sunoco Rookie of the Year contenders continue to impress as a pair of rookies finished in the top five for the second straight week. Danny Bohn won Sunoco Rookie of the Race honors in the South Boston 150 and Kyle Ebersole picked up his first-ever top five finish on the tour during the third race of the season. Bohn's finish moved him up to third in the standings, while Ebersole moved into the top-10 and is eighth, just 17 points out of the lead.

Parity continues: For the first time since 2010, there could be four different winners in as many races to start the season. This will also be the third race of five scheduled for Caraway Speedway this season.

Participation is up: For the first three races of the season, the car count has been strong. Last week's South Boston 150 featured a season-high 27 cars. The first two events at Caraway featured 24 and 22 cars, respectively.

Another Ticket Punched For To Daytona: After winning the South Boston 150, Brandon Ward joined Brian Loftin and George Brunnhoelzl III in becoming the third NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour competitor locked into the inaugural UNOH Battle at the Beach at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway in February 2013. Each eligible race winner throughout the season from the Whelen Modified and Whelen Southern Modified Tours will earn guaranteed starting positions for the combined Whelen Modified exhibition feature on the short track at Daytona.
