Bohn Races Weekly At BGS, Brunnhoelzl Has Surgery
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — As the NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour gets closer to resuming its schedule with the Daggett Schuler Attorneys At Law 150 on July 4 at Caraway Speedway, a number of different approaches have been employed by drivers during the three-month idle stretch.
Since its inaugural season of 2005, the Whelen Southern Modified Tour annually has had an unofficial “spring break” from May-July. The schedule respite came about via a symbiotic relationship with Bowman Gray Stadium in Winston-Salem, North Carolina which has a large number of tour competitors participating in its NASCAR Whelen All-American Series modified division. The collaboration helps keep the competition strong for both.
When the 2014 Whelen Southern Modified Tour schedule was laid out, there were to be six points races before the break, the annual Independence Day event at Caraway, then eight dates to close out the summer and fall. Mother Nature then added to the off time with early-season rainouts that ultimately lengthened the idle period from April 12 to July 4.
