Seuss Adds His Name to List of North-South Shootout Winners
Andy Seuss added his name to the list of winners of the John Blewett III North-South Shootout Saturday at Concord Speedway (NC). The win wasn’t easy for the Hampstead, N.H. driver, but to add his name to the list of winners of this event is something that Seuss will never forget.
“Words cannot describe what it means to win this race,” Seuss said. “I didn’t know if I’d ever do it. You need to have every base covered, good car, good engine, setup, pit crew, strategy and discipline in the car. To know we covered all of that the best of any team, even through adversity, is pretty amazing.”
Seuss qualified seventh for the 125-lap event and worked his way towards the front right away. On an early caution many cars came down pit road, but Seuss chose to stay out. Fresher tires got the best of the No. 11 machine and Seuss found himself slipping back through the field.
On lap 69 the 29-year-old driver was then involved in an on-track incident, which led to slight damage on the No. 11 machine and a starting spot near the rear of the field when the race went back to green.
