Brunnhoelzl Takes Win In NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour Race
Apr 14, 2013 - updated Apr 14th, 2013 10:54am
Web posted by Tim Chandler

SouthBoston, VA --

George Brunnhoelzl III started on the pole and scored a flag-to-flag win in Saturday’s NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour 150 at South Boston Speedway.

The win was Brunnhoelzl’s first NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour victory of the season and his first win at South Boston Speedway.

Brunnhoelzl, of West Babylon, N.Y., edged runner-up Brian Loftin of Lexington, N.C. by 1.094 second, pulling away from Loftin, who occupied second place the entire race, in a 16-lap dash to the finish that followed the last of the race’s five caution periods.

Kyle Ebersole of Hummelstown, Pa. finished third with John Smith of Mount Airy, N.C. and Tim Brown of Rural Hall, N.C. rounding out the top five finishers.

Brunnhoelzl averaged 55.215 mph in the race that was slowed by five caution periods that consumed 31 laps.

Brunnhoelzl entered the race with a five-point lead in the series points standings and extended it to 12 points with the win.

            Pulliam, McCaskill Split Late Model Stock Car Twinbill

Reigning NASCAR Whelen All American Series National Champion Lee Pulliam of Semora, N.C. and Deac McCaskill of Raleigh, N.C. split wins in the twin 75-lap NASCAR Whelen All American Series Late Model Stock Car Division races that served as the night’s co-feature event at the .4-mile oval.

The win by Pulliam in the opening race was his fourth of the season at South Boston Speedway and his seventh victory overall. McCaskill’s win was his first of the season at South Boston Speedway and was his third win of the season.

Pulliam took the win in the night’s first 75-lap NASCAR Late Model Stock Car Division race, edging McCaskill by .206-second in a dramatic five-lap dash to the finish that followed the last of the race’s two caution periods.

The race was a thriller, with Pulliam and McCaskill swapping the lead four times over the last 31 laps of the race. C.E. Falk III of Virginia Beach, Va. was also in contention for the win, but had to settle for third place. Tommy Lemons Jr. of Troy, N.C. and 2011 NASCAR Whelen All American Series National Champion Philip Morris of Ruckersville, Va. rounded out the top five finishers in the 21-car field.

The night’s second race was a thriller as well, with MCaskill edging Pulliam by .322-second in a 36-lap dash to the finish that followed the last of the race’s two caution periods.

McCaskill and Pulliam waged a tense side-by-side battle over the last 20 laps of the race, with McCaskill riding the outside lane and Pulliam taking the bottom lane. Pulliam drew alongside McCaskill on several occasions including the final lap, but McCaskill was able to hold him off.

Morris finished fourth in the nightcap with Dustin Storm of Huntingtown, Md. rounding out the top five finishers.

Hensley, Hendrick, Harris Inducted Into Virginia Motorsports Hall Of Fame

Three-time NASCAR Nationwide Series runner-up, former NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Rookie of the Year and former South Boston Speedway track champion Jimmy Hensley of Ridgeway, Va., NASCAR Sprint Cup Series team owner Rick Hendrick and the late Gayther Wallace “Runt” Harris of Richmond, Va., one of the famed “Four H Boys” that also included Ray Hendrick, Sonny Hutchins and Ted Hairfield, were inducted into the Virginia Motorsports Hall Of Fame during a special pre-race ceremony.

Hensley was a star on the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, the NASCAR Nationwide Series, the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and the former NASCAR Late Model Sportsman and Modified circuits.

Hensley’s career spanned 27 seasons, and during that span he won multiple track championships in Virginia, North Carolina and Tennessee. He was a nine-time winner on the NASCAR Nationwide Series circuit.

Hendrick owns the vaunted Hendrick Motorsports NASCAR Sprint Cup Series teams that feature drivers Jimmie Johnson, Jeff Gordon, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Kasey Kahne. The teams owned by the South Hill native have amassed him 14 drivers’ championships including 10 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series titles.

One of the famed “Four H Boys,” Harris won over 300 races during his racing career while competing in the NASCAR Modified ranks. He won the 1964 South Boston Speedway NASCAR Modified title and was the 1960 Virginia state champion in the NASCAR Sportsman Division.

Harris’ daughter, Brenda Harris Newhouse, attended and accepted the honor on her late father’s behalf.
