Seuss Plays Role of David in Battle Against Goliath at Talladega
In David-vs.-Goliath fashion, Andy Seuss recorded a career-best second-place finish in Saturday’s ARCA Racing Series General Tire 200 at Talladega Superspeedway (AL). Seuss of Hampstead, N.H. patiently made his way towards the front from the 33rd starting position and fell short of the win by just 0.108 seconds.
“It’s pretty incredible. I go back and forth as competitor. You want to win and don’t want to pat yourself on the back for anything but a win. But, if you take a step back and see the competition we were up against, it’s really neat,” said Seuss, a two-time NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour Champion. “It’s right up there with any of the other highlights of my career. It’s such a sense of accomplishment really. Talladega itself is really special. My dad brought me on a father-son trip there when I was 12. I remember thinking I’d never make it to the Talladega Short Track to race let alone the superspeedway.”
For many watching at the track and at home, Seuss played the role of the underdog that everybody likes to cheer for.
