Seuss To Celebrate Southern Modified Title

New Hampshire Native Scores First NASCAR Championship

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (Dec. 3, 2014)  — There is an old saying ‘Good things eventually come to good people' and that is appropriate for this year's NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour champion Andy Seuss.

It has been a long road for the 27 year-old Hampstead, New Hampshire, native. He clinched the title in his 84 th career tour start which is the most by any of the six champions to win in the 10-year history of the southern tour.

His parents, Steve and Bobbi – where at least one of them has made it to every one of his starts, logging in over 175,000 miles in the process – brought him down South in 2006. He made four starts in each of his first two seasons, picking up his first win in only his fifth start at Nashville (Fairgrounds) Speedway. more info..

NASCAR Statement from George Silbermann, NASCAR Vice President, Regional and Touring Series, Regarding UNOH Battle At The Beach

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (Nov. 26, 2014) – “The UNOH Battle at the Beach provided NASCAR's stars of tomorrow an excellent opportunity to participate at The World Center of Racing, but it isn't feasible to continue the event given the progress with the DAYTONA Rising project. Fortunately, nearby New Smyrna Speedway is excited to bring the K&N Pro Series East back for the season opener again this year in addition to its week-long slate of NASCAR Whelen All-American Series action; NASCAR fans will still have plenty of opportunities to see exciting short-track action in the Daytona area again this February.”

David Riggs Passes Away

A Car Owner, A Friend, an A True Champion

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – David Riggs, the patriarch of Riggs Racing, one of the most successful teams in the history of the NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour, passed away last night after a long battle with cancer.

Riggs got his start in modified racing in 1962 fielding cars in events for over four decades. 

He was also an inaugural team owner when the tour began operation in 2005 and along with his son Jeff, won the 2005 and 2006 championships with driver Junior Miller.

In 2008 David Riggs put a young Andy Seuss behind the wheel full-time and proceeded to win seven races with the Hampstead, New Hampshire native.

Riggs quit racing full-time after 2010, when Jeff died unexpectedly in the offseason. Seuss continued using some of Riggs'cars after teaming up with his current owner Eddie Harvey in 2011.

Riggs also fielded cars in the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour for drivers such as Jamie Tomaino, Tony Jankowiak, and Tim Arre, and won the prestigious modified race at Martinsville Speedway with Johnny Bryant in 1985.

“David Riggs and his entire family helped get the NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour moving forward and their dedication to the series is appreciated,” said Brad Moran, managing director of NASCAR Touring Series. “On behalf of everyone at NASCAR we send our condolences to his wife Margaret and the entire Riggs family.”
