NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour News & Notes: Caraway

Brunnhoelzl And Ebersole 16 Points Apart With Four Races Left

 

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (Sept. 3, 2013) – Kyle Ebersole has been good at Caraway Speedway in Asheboro, N.C., throughout his young career, but George Brunnhoelzl III has been better.

 

Heading in to the ninth event of the NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour 2013 season, Brunnhoelzl and Ebersole find themselves separated by only 16 points. Two of the final four events take place at Caraway.

 

Ebersole, the 22-year-old from Hummelstown, Pa., is coming off his first career victory last weekend at Langley (Va.) Speedway. In eight starts at Caraway he has five top-five-finishes, including a runner-up finish his last time out. Brunnhoelzl, from North Babylon, N.Y., on the other hand, has been flat out dominant at the .455-mile semi-banked asphalt oval. He has 10 wins, 21 top fives and a total of 1143 laps led in 33 career starts. In his last eight races there, he has five wins, six top fives and eight top 10 finishes.

 

Both drivers head into the Caraway 150 looking to build momentum. Brunnhoelzl will try and capture his third consecutive victory at the track while Ebersole tries to make it to Victory Lane in consecutive tour events.

 

Ebersole is running out of time to close the gap in the standings. He knows that he’ll need to run well in order to overtake the three-time tour champion and perhaps add another victory to his resume. Only one driver in Southern Modified Tour history, Burt Myers in 2010, has won the championship without recording a win at Caraway. A win by Ebersole this weekend will help him in his quest for the 2013 tour championship.

FAST FACTS

The Race:  The Caraway 150 is the ninth race of the 2013 NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour and the fourth of five tour events at Caraway Speedway.

 

The Procedure:  The maximum starting field will be 26 cars, including provisionals. The first 23 starting positions will be based on two-lap time trials and the remaining three will be filled through the provisional process. The race will be 150 laps (68.25 miles) with a 10 minute break at or near the conclusion of Lap 75.

 

The Track:  Caraway Speedway has played host to 46 events in the NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour history, dating back to the tour’s first race on March 26, 2005. Caraway was originally opened in 1966 as a dirt track. The track was paved in 1972 and became NASCAR-sanctioned shortly after. The track was owned and operated by Russell and Valastra Hackett from 1977 to 2010. Operations were turned over to Darren and Renee Hackett prior to the 2011 season. There is 13 degrees of banking in the turns and the straightaways are banked at nine degrees. The track has a capacity of 6,800 spectators.

 

The Records:  The one-lap qualifying record for the NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour is 15.648 seconds (104.678 mph), set by Brunnhoelzl on April 21, 2012. The 150-lap race record is held by Junior Miller at 44 minutes, 31 seconds was set on Sept. 9, 2006 for an average speed of 90.977 mph.

 

CARAWAY NOTES:

Burt Myers Looks to End Caraway Drought:  Burt Myers will look to carry his momentum as the track champion in weekly Modified competition at Bowman Gray Stadium in Winston-Salem, N.C., over to Caraway this week and end a long-running drought in Whelen Southern Modified Tour action. Myers won the second southern tour event at the track in 2005, but it’s been 42 starts since then without a return trip to Caraway Victory Lane. His tour résumé since that last Caraway victory certainly hasn’t lacked of success, however, as he’s won eight times at six different tracks since. Myers will be able to look to his brother, Jason, for inspiration as Jason was able to earn his first career Caraway victory in the 2013 opener.

 

Loftin, Seuss Also Look to Challenge Brunnhoelzl:  With 10 career wins at Caraway, including six of the last nine appearances there, Brunnhoelzl is the most accomplished driver in southern tour history at the venerable track. But you can count Brian Loftin and Andy Seuss among his top competition when the southern tour returns there this week. Loftin has eight wins of his own at Caraway – the latest in 2012 – while Seuss has six career triumphs at the track. All six of Seuss’ wins came in a 15-race span from 2008-11, but he’ll look to end a nine-race drought this week.

 

HOME TRACKS: McCaskill Paces Tarheel State

Sunday’s race card will also feature Caraway’s Late Model division of the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series. Last time out, Tommy Lemons Jr. edged national points leader Lee Pulliam to win the first of two Late Model features, while Ryan Wilson won the second. Lemons currently trails Deac McCaskill in North Carolina points..

 

LAST TIME OUT: Langley

Ebersole took the lead late en route to his first career victory in the southern tour. It came in just his 19th career start. Below are some highlights from the Newport News Shipbuilding/Bayport Credit Union 150:

·         Seuss captured the Coors Light Pole Award, setting a track record with a lap of 14.771 seconds.

·         Tim Brown crossed the finish line third, his fifth top-five of the season and his third in four races.

·         Burt Myers made his 100th series start and recorded his 83rd top 10 finish with an eighth.

 

NEXT TIME OUT: Southern National

The NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour will make its second stop to Southern National Motorsports Park for the G-Oil 150 on Saturday, Sept. 21. Burt Myers earned the victory in the tour's first visit to the track this season. It was the fourth time the southern modifieds rolled through Kenly, N.C., with Myers taking the checkered flag two of the four times.
