Same Song, Different Verse. Kyle Busch Wins in Martinsville

In his first Camping World Truck Series race of 2016, Kyle Busch won his first Grandfather Clock as a driver today after a rather entertaining race with many wrecks. This is Kyle Busch's' 4th win in NASCAR this season but still lacks that 1 victory in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. John Hunter Nemachek came so close to winning his second race of the season but Kyle Busch got a great restart at the ending overtime and would land in victory lane. William Byron, Kyle Larson, and Timothy Peters rounded out the Top 5!

Late Race Pass Pays Off For Brunnhoelzl

Late race heroics paid off for George Brunnhoelzl III at North Carolina’s Concord Speedway. The 33-year-old North Babylon, New York, native joined the battle for first place with 12 laps remaining and passed Ted Christopher with three laps to go to collect his first win of the 2016 NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour season and his 26th career tour win. Saturday at the half-mile oval saw more passing in in the first 37 laps than the Tour’s last visit to the track combined. Brunnhoelzl settled for mid-pack for most of the race until late in the race when he turned on the pressure and took the lead from Christopher off of Turn 3. Christopher settled for second followed by Burt Myers, defending champion Andy Seuss and Jason Myers. While Bobby Measmer Jr., JR Bertuccio, Kyle Bonsignore, Gary Putnam and Danny Bohn rounded out the top 10. NASCAR XFINITY Series driver, Ryan Preece, led the first 63 laps before falling to eighth with 58 laps to go. The 2014 NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour champion ultimately finished 12th. The NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour will be back in action on April 9 with the South Boston 150 at Virginia’s South Boston Speedway. (NASCAR Home Tracks)
