Whelen So. Mod Tour News & Notes: SNMP

By Jason Cunningham, NASCAR

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Although it may be too early to tell, the NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour may have finally found its answer to George Brunnhoelzl III’s domination. That answer comes in the form of Brunnhoelzl’s former teammate, Andy Seuss.

Seuss turned in a thoroughly dominating performance en route to victory on Sunday at Caraway Speedway in the Whelen Season Opener 150. As the tour rolls on to Southern National Motorsports Park for this coming Saturday’s Southern National 150, Seuss seems poised to make more noise in 2014.
