Our Motorsports to Field Two Cars at New Hampshire

New Hampshire LogoHUNTERSVILLE, N.C. (SEPTEMBER 21, 2015) – Our Motorsports announced today that Keith Rocco will return to drive the No. 22 Our Motorsports Chevrolet at next week’s NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. This will be Rocco’s first NWMT event since breaking his hand back in July.

Fielding a second entry at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, Ted Christopher will continue the momentum he built with the Our Motorsports team during Rocco’s recovery. Driving the No. 23 Chevrolet, Christopher will remain with the team on a race-to-race deal through the end of the season.

“I’m glad to be back in the No.22 this weekend at New Hampshire Motor Speedway,” said Rocco. “It’s been a long wait to get back in the seat for a longer race like this, but I am feeling good and ready to race with my teammate Teddy (Christopher).”

“I’m looking forward to another race with the Our Motorsports team,” said Christopher. “With their great equipment, Keith and I will be able to work in a draft which is key at New Hampshire. I’ve raced against Keith Waterford for a long time and we trade back and forth on the wins, it will be great to work alongside him as part of the Our Motorsports stable of drivers for the F.W. Webb 100.”

“It’s great to have both Keith and Teddy entered for New Hampshire,” said team owner Chris Our. That speaks volumes for our team and the work we have been doing this season. Brad (Lafontaine, crew chief) and Greg (Narducci) have worked with our team to prepare two strong cars for this week’s race.”

Rocco, Christopher, and the Our Motorsports team will head to New Hampshire Motor Speedway on Thursday, September 24th for the F.W. Webb 100.

Seuss In Title Driver’s Seat With Win

nascar whelen mod sou[2]Takes Whelen Southern Modified Lead With South Boston Victory

SOUTH BOSTON, Va. (Sept. 19, 2015) – Andy Seuss took a big step toward successfully defending his NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour championship Saturday night in capturing the South Boston 150 at South Boston Speedway.

It was the third win of the season and 21st of his career for the Hampstead, New Hampshire, driver. Seuss’ No. 11 Northeast Race Cars/Ideal Financial Chevrolet was out front for a race-high 142 laps for his third win on the .400-mile oval.

Four-time tour champion George Brunnhoelzl III followed Seuss across the line in second and moved into championship contention.

Second-year driver Bobby Measmer Jr., who won his first career Coors Light Pole Award earlier in the day, finished a career-best third. Frank Fleming and Jeremy Gerstner rounded out the top five.

Burt Myers was sixth, followed by Jason Myers, Kyle Ebersole, rookie Trey Hutchens and James Civali.

Seuss entered the event trailing Jason Myers by one point for the tour lead, but leaves South Boston with a 10-point lead over Burt and Jason Myers with two races remaining.

Brunnhoelzl is now just three points behind the Myers brothers.

Seuss cleared Brunnhoelzl on the final restart on Lap 119 and slowly pulled away for the win.

The South Boston 150 will air on NBCSN on Thursday, Sept. 24 at 7 p.m.

The NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour will be back in action Saturday, Oct. 3 in the Hickory 150 at Hickory (North Carolina) Motor Speedway.
