Seuss Gets Back To Victory Lane

New Hampshire Driver Becomes First 3-Time Winner

Myrtle Beach, SC — After a couple of tough luck races Andy Seuss finally has a reason to celebrate.

Seuss was able to get past Rich Kuiken Jr. on Lap 122 and held on to win the Myrtle Beach 150 Saturday night at Myrtle Beach Speedway. Seuss, who started on the pole after the redraw, fell back early in the race as his strategy was to save his tires as much as possible.

The Hampstead, N.H. driver, who last took the checkered flag at Lanier (Ga.) Speedway in April, crossed the finish line ahead of George Brunnhoelzl III. Buddy Emory finished third for his first podium finish of the season. L.W. Miller was fourth and Gene Pack fifth.

It was Seuss’ third win of the season. Brunhhoelzl, who earlier in the day won his 5th Coors Light Pole Award of the season, was able to maintain his 76-point lead over Seuss after the 9th race of the season.

The race was slowed five times for caution. The NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour returns to Caraway Speedway next Saturday night for the Caraway 150.
