Southern Mods Return To Action On Independence Day
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – The NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour will head to a familiar place to return to action Friday following the annual spring break period with the Daggett Shuler Attorneys at Law 150 in an Independence Day special at Caraway Speedway.
After nearly three months between events, the familiar grounds of the .455-mile oval provide the perfect setting to work out the cobwebs, especially for those drivers that have been inactive during the break. Caraway has played host to five times as many races as any other track in southern tour history.
One of those idle competitors has quite a history at Caraway as well. George Brunnhoelzl III has recorded 10 wins at the venerable oval in rural Sophia, North Carolina, the current Whelen Southern Modified Tour record. He’s also won the July 4th weekend event in each of the two previous seasons, as well as in 2009.
