Seuss Kicks Off Season in Style at Myrtle Beach Speedway
Andy Seuss kicked off his 2017 campaign with a podium finish in the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour (NWMT) race at Myrtle Beach Speedway (SC) on Saturday. The Hampstead, New Hampshire driver raced towards the front of the field all day and even led late in the race before bringing home a third-place finish.
“Very happy with the weekend,” Seuss stated. “It was one of the most competitive races in years, so on one side you'd be happy with a top ten and the car in one piece; on the other side, we probably would have won without those cautions at the end.”
Seuss was in the lead with less than 20 laps to go, but pit strategy came into play. He and his team elected to come to pit road and put fresh rubber on his No. 11 machine under the late-race caution.
“We were leading and still strong, but had to make the decision to pit or not,” Seuss explained. “Fresh tires being key at Myrtle Beach, we opted for tires and ran out of time getting back to the front. But, had we not taken tires we would have been a sitting duck.”
