SOPHIA, NC - Andy Seuss continues to roll in NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour events at Caraway Speedway in Sophia, NC.<br /> <br /> The 27-year-old from Hampstead, New Hampshire, completed the sweep on the day's on-track events at the .455-mile banked asphalt oval. Seuss was fastest in practice, won his eighth pole Coors Light Pole Award at the track and led every lap en route to winning the Daggett Shuler Attorneys At Law 150 at Caraway.

Just after the midway point, Brunnhoelzl III took the lead from Bohn and began his attack on the frontrunner, but Seuss stuck to the inside lane, forcing all challengers to try and pass him on the high side, a feat they the rest of the field was unsuccessful at.<br /> <br /> The NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour will be back on track Saturday, August 2 at the 10th Annual 199 at Bowman Gray Stadium in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.<br /> <br /> <strong>NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour</strong><br /> <strong> Caraway Speedway - Sophia, NC</strong><br /> <strong> Race Results - July 4, 2014</strong><br /> <br /> Fin Str Car Driver Team Laps Points B/Points Status<br /> 1 1 11 Andy Seuss Ideal Finance/Phoenix Motors Chevrolet 150 48 5 Running<br /> 2 3 28 George Brunnhoelzl, III Composite Tech./Performance Tech.
