ANDY SEUSS GET SECOND WIN OF 2009 AT LANIER SPEEDWAY

BRASELTON, Ga. -- Last week Andy Seuss wondered what might have happened if he had another few laps last week when he finished second to Ted Christopher in the NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour race at Caraway.

The race would start with Frank Fleming and LW Miller on the front row after the redraw for their starting spots. Fleming would just to the front and lead the first six laps. Miller would grab the lead for one lap and Fleming would then take it back for two more laps til Teddy Christopher would take over the lead on lap ten.

Christopher would seem to be on his way for a third win on the NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour till lap fourty-four when Seuss would take over lead and drive his No. 47 Advance Auto Parts/Q Racing Oil/Stuart Auto Dodge past Christopher to lead the rest of the way to win his second race of the season at Lanier Speedway Saturday night.

Defending race winner George Brunnhoelzl III (No. 28 Oval Speed/Fibrwrap/PT Ford) finished second. L.W. Miller and Burt Myers made contact in Turn 2 on the final lap while racing for third, and Myers went spinning. Miller went on to score his best finish of the year in third, with Brian Loftin and Jason Myers completing the top five.

Ted Christopher, who won his first two NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour races, finished seventh, while Burt Myers ended up ninth.  The race was slowed just two times for caution.

Earlier in the day, Brunnhoelzl won his third Coors Light Pole Award of the year with a record time of 13.374 seconds (100.942 mph).

The NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour will take its spring break and return to action on Friday, July 3 at Caraway Speedway in Asheboro , North Carolina .
