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.
