NASCAR Whelen So. Modified Tour Recap: Seuss Leads Wire-To-Wire At Caraway

Seuss Leads Wire-To-Wire At Caraway

Holds Off Charge From Brunnhoelzl III For 10th Win At Track

 

SOPHIA, N.C. (July 4, 2014) – Andy Seuss continues to roll in NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour events at Caraway Speedway.

 

The 27-year-old from Hampstead, New Hampshire, completed the sweep on the day's on-track events. Seuss was fastest in practice, won his eighth Coors Light Pole Award at the track and led every lap en route to winning the Daggett Shuler Attorneys At Law 150 at Caraway. It was his fourth consecutive victory at the.455-mile banked asphalt oval and 10th all-time. Saturday’s race was also the 50th Southern Modified Tour event hosted by Caraway.

 

Seuss' 10 wins at Caraway tie him with runner-up finisher George Brunnhoelzl III for the most in Tour history. The two drivers were bumper to bumper in the second half of the 150-lap event, but after clearing traffic on Lap 144, Seuss used a clear track to pull away from the defending Tour champion and secure his third win of the season.

 

JR Bertuccio, Danny Bohn and Kyle Ebersole rounded out the top five.

 

For Seuss, the day could not have gone any better.

 

“It was a perfect day and we (the team) are hitting on all cylinders right now,” said Seuss. “(Team owner) Eddie (Harvey) has this car handling awesome and Rah-Moc power under the hood. It’s pretty neat.”

 

The wire-to-wire win was the fifth of Seuss' career and fourth at Caraway. He won the 2014 season opener in similar fashion. Seuss now sits just one win shy of matching his career high for a season, four, with nine races remaining on the schedule.

 

Seuss felt pressure early from fellow front row starter Bohn. In the opening laps, Bohn looked for a way around Seuss on the inside and outside, but wasn't able to mount enough of a charge to overtake him for the top spot. Just after the midway point, Brunnhoelzl III took over second place from Bohn and began his attack on the frontrunner, but Seuss stuck to the inside lane, forcing all challengers to try and pass him on the high side.

 

Brunnhoelzl was able to pull up on the bumper and tried to make a pass a few times in the race, but felt the cars were just too equal and Seuss held his line and the lead for the win.

 

“The cars were just so even Andy would have had to slip up for us to get by him,” added Brunnhoelzl. “I was able to get a quarter panel on the inside of him a few times but never had enough speed to make the pass. Dad (George Brunnhoelzl Jr.) and the rest of the crew did a great job giving me a fast car but we were just a little off.”

 

Seuss historically performs better late in the season, but this year the veteran feels he and his team are contenders for the title based on their performance in the first half of the 2014 campaign.

 

“I have never won this Fourth of July race and I have never won three races this early in the year and it’s pretty neat,” Seuss added. “We are very confident so far and we are going to some tracks we are good at and we have a good streak going here at Caraway.”

 

Following the top five, Gary Putnam finished sixth, followed by Jason Myers, Bryan Dauzat, Spencer Davis and David Calabrese.

 

The NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour will be back on track Saturday, August 2 at the 10th Annual Strutmasters.com 199 at Bowman Gray Stadium in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
