First victory for champion in more than a year
Asheboro, NC — It has been long overdue for 2008 NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour champion Brian Loftin.
Loftin made a strong pass by L.W. Miller to take the lead on Lap 72 and held off current championship points leader George Brunnhoelzl III on a green-white-checkered finish to win the Caraway 150 Saturday night.
Loftin’s previous series win was at Caraway Speedway just over a year ago.
Following Brunnhoelzl was Andy Suess in third and L.W. Miller in fourth. John Smith completed the top five.
Brunnhoelzl, who won his fourth Coors Light Pole Award of the season earlier in the day in qualilfying, started on the outside of row 1 after the redraw and quickly took the lead from Frank Fleming at the start of the race.
