Brunnhoelzl Returns To Victory Lane

Holds Off Myers For Whelen Southern Modified Win At Caraway

SOPHIA, N.C. -- George Brunnhoelzl held off Burt Myers Saturday night and in the process kept alive his hopes for a fifth NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour championship with his win in the Zooland 150. 

Brunnhoelzl edged Myers, who has won three of the last four tour races, for his first win since April at Langley Speedway and 11 overall at Caraway Speedway.

JR Bertuccio finished third, followed by Danny Bohn and championship points leader Andy Seuss.

Brunnhoelzl cut Seuss' championship points lead from 18 to nine with two races remaining.

Jason Myers, Luke Fleming, Brian Loftin, and rookies Bobby Measmer Jr. and Joe Ryan Osborne completed the top 10. Loftin won the Coors Light Pole Award earlier in the day.

The victory is the 22 of Brunnhoelzl's career and second of the season.

The NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour returns to Caraway on Saturday, Oct. 4, for the Prestoria Farms 150. The penultimate race of the 2014 season was rescheduled from March 29 after a rain-out.
