Holds On For Whelen Southern Modified Win At Langley
HAMPTON, Va. – Kyle Ebersole came from behind to capture his first NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour win at Langley Speedway on Saturday night.
Ebersole of Hummelstown, Pa., took the lead late and then held off a hard charge from three-time tour champion George Brunnhoelzl III to win the Newport News Shipbuilding/Bayport Credit Union 150.
“It feels awesome,” Ebersole said when describing his first career victory. “Last year was the first year on the tour and I got a lot of good experience. I’ve been faster all year and I’m really happy we could seal the deal in one of these things before the end of the year.”
The win came in just the 19th career tour start for the driver of the No. 5 Ebersole Excavating Ford, who had started seventh on the grid.
