BRUNNHOELZL CELEBRTES VICTORY AT CARAWAY
Sets New Record For Most Whelen Southern Tour Wins at Track
Brunnhoelzl hasnít enjoyed the type of season heís
used to in the NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour,
but picking up a win and setting a new record might
help make him feel a little better.
Brunnhoelzl passed Andy Seuss on Lap 119 and
remained out front the rest of the way to win the
Caraway 150 at Caraway Speedway.
Brunnhoelzl also used the win to break a tie with
Seuss for the most tour wins at Caraway with his
13th triumph in the 60th race held at the unofficial
home track for the southern modifieds.
Points leader Burt Myers finished second with Jason
Myers third. Seuss followed in fourth and Danny Bohn
completed the top five.
Brunnhoelzl equals Burt Myers for the most wins this
season with his third trip to Victory Lane and while
heís third in the standings, back-to-back accidents
at Bowman Gray Stadium and Bristol in August cost
him a chance at a fifth title.
Burt Myers was able to add three points on his lead
over Seuss to now have a 22-point cushion over the
two-time defending champion with one race remaining
on the schedule.
Sunoco Rookie of the Year contender Kyle Bonsignore
finished sixth with Jeremy Gerstner, David
Calabrese, Bobby Measmer Jr. and Bryan Dauzat
rounding out the top 10.
After having a caution-free race for the first time
since 2006 last week at South Boston Speedway, the
Caraway 150 was slowed just once for caution on Lap
During the caution Burt Myers, who took the lead
from Seuss on Lap 7, pitted and after making two pit
stops during the caution, came back out ninth with
Seuss in the lead.
Brunnhoelzl came out of the pits sixth and quickly
made his way through the field and caught Seuss by
After looking to the inside of Seuss, the four-time
NWSMT champion went to the outside and made the pass
two laps later.
Seuss won his first Coors Light Pole Award of the
season during afternoon qualifying.
The NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour will
conclude its 2016 season with the Southern Slam 150
on Thursday, Oct. 6 on the quarter-mile track at
Charlotte Motor Speedway.
