By George, Brunnhoelzl Does It Again

Last-Lap Pass Leads To Ninth Caraway Win For Three-Time Champion

 

ASHEBORO, N.C. (April 20, 2013) – After dominating a week ago George Brunnhoelzl III used a different technique this time to score the win.

 

Brunnhoelzl, hailing from West Babylon, N.Y., made a dramatic last-lap pass of Tim Brown to pick up a NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour on Saturday night in the Spring Fling 150 at Caraway Speedway.

 

Brunnhoelzl started from the pole position after winning his 20th career pole award earlier in the day, but lost the lead to Brown on the race’s first lap. Brunnhoelzl behind the wheel of his No. 28 Epox-Z/Oval Speed Chevrolet spent the rest of the race looking at the rear bumper of Brown. An opportunity presented itself, though, on Lap 146 when the caution flag flew for a multi-car incident in Turn 1 of the .455-mile oval which set up a green-white-checkered finish. After Brown took the white flag Brunnhoelzl tapped the leader’s rear bumper in Turns 3 and 4 opening a window for Brunnhoelzl to slip through to victory.

 

Brunnhoelzl had little reservations after the fact about the bump-and-run move that led to yet another Caraway victory.

 

“Tim had a good car, we had a great car … every restart, every time I got outside of him he put me up in the third groove, and during a race there’s no need for it,” Brunnhoelzl said. “The green-white-checkered comes, he ran me into the hot dog stand in Turn 1, so he cleared me down the backstretch, and I gave him a little bump-and-run.”

 

On the cool-down lap Brown made contact with Brunnhoelzl and attempted to disrupt the Victory Lane proceedings, but race officials cleared things out with little incident.

 

It was the second agonizing defeat for Brown, who held on to finish second, at Caraway in as many starts this season. In the season’s opening race on March 16 at Caraway, Brown started from the pole and led a race-high 96 laps before running out of fuel on Lap 146 of the 150-lap affair.

 

Kyle Ebersole finished third for the third straight race. Last year’s Sunoco Rookie of the Year Danny Bohn scored a season-best finish of fourth followed by Brian Loftin in fifth. Rookie Luke Fleming, Burt Myers, Andy Seuss, Jason Myers and Gary Putnam rounded out the top-10 finishers on the night.

 

For Brunnhoelzl, it was his 19th tour career win which extends his own all-time tour record. He’s won five of the last eight Whelen Southern Modified Tour events at Caraway, and he’s finished either first or second in nine of the last 11.

 

It was also Brunnhoelzl’s ninth career win at Caraway which gives him the all-time mark at the track. He and Loftin were tied atop the list coming into the evening.

 

“It feels great [to be atop the list],” Brunnhoelzl said. “Every time you win it’s great. To take the most wins here just makes it that much better.”

 

The three-time tour champion in Brunnhoelzl led wire-to-wire to pick up his first victory of the season on April 13 at South Boston (Va.) Speedway. After his two consecutive wins, Brunnhoelzl has an 18-point advantage over Ebersole in the championship standings with Brown closely trailing.

 

With four of 12 races in the books, the NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour takes a break and will be on the track next on Friday, July 5 at Caraway Speedway.
