Seuss Captures Caraway Win

Fourth victory of the season

 

ASHEBORO, N.C. -  Andy Seuss took the win in the Caraway 150 at Caraway Speedway on Saturday night by .884 seconds over George Brunnhoelzl III.

It marked the fourth victory of the season for the 22-year-old driver from Hampstead, N.H. Seuss passed Burt Myers on Lap 10 and remained out front the rest of the night.

“We know passing George for the points lead is going to be a challenge so we have decided to race these last four races to win and dominate,” Seuss said. “We tried some things last week and were way off but my guys gave me a great car tonight and this is a great night for our team.”

Seuss enjoyed a 10-car length lead over Brian Loftin when the only caution flag of the race was thrown on Lap 123 when Tommy Neal spun down the back stretch.

Seuss was able to hold on to the lead on the restart and keep Brunnhoelzl in his rearview mirror. 

Brian Loftin finished third, followed by Burt Myers and Jason Myers. Rounding out the top 10 were Frank Fleming, John Smith, Jonathan Brown, Buddy Emory and J.R. Bertuccio.

Myers started the race from the front row after the redraw and led the first nine laps after winning his second consecutive Coors Light Pole Award and 20th of his career in the NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour.

Brunnhoelzl only lost 10 points of his lead following the Caraway 150 and heads to Martinsville with a 125-point margin over Seuss with three races remaining.
