SOPHIA, N.C. - George Brunnhoelzl held off Burt Myers Saturday night in a green-white-checkered finish and in the process kept alive his hopes for a fifth NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour championship with his win in the Zooland 150.

JR Bertuccio finished third, followed by Danny Bohn and championship points leader Andy Seuss.

Brunnhoelzl cut Seuss’ championship points lead from 18 to nine with two races remaining. Myers, who entered the night winning three of the last four races, remains in third place 22 points out of the lead.



Jason Myers, Luke Fleming, Brian Loftin, and rookies Bobby Measmer Jr. and Joe Ryan Osborne completed the top 10.



Loftin won the Coors Light Pole Award earlier in the day.



The victory is the 22 of Brunnhoelzl’s career and second of the season. Brunnhoelzl also became the all-time wins leader at Caraway Speedway with 11 wins.



The NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour returns to Caraway on Saturday, Oct. 4, for the Prestoria Farms 150. The penultimate race of the 2014 season was rescheduled from March 29 after a rain-out.
