SOPHIA, N.C. -- Andy Seuss mounted his challenge to dethrone George Brunnhoelzl III for the NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour Sunday in dominating fashion.

The 26-year-old from Hempstead, N.H., was fastest in practice, won the Coors Light Pole Award and led every lap en route to winning the Whelen Opener 150 at Caraway Speedway. He finished 1.465 seconds ahead of runner-up Brunnhoelzl.

The win was the 16th of Seuss' career and his ninth at Caraway, including his third straight. He won the tour's last two stops at the .455-mile banked oval last September.

Seuss became just the third driver to win three straight Whelen Southern Modified races at Caraway, joining LW Miller (5) and Junior Miller (3).

J.R. Bertuccio, Burt Myers and Jason Myers rounded out the top five.

Danny Bohn was sixth, followed by Brian Loftin, Luke Fleming, Thomas Stinson and rookie Joe Ryan Osborne.

The NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour will be back on track Saturday, Marcy 15 with the Southern National 150 at Southern National Motorposrts Park in Kenly, N.C.
