VALENCIA NASCAR FEST LINKS
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – The NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour provides a difficult challenge to any newcomer hoping for immediate success. Veterans rule the roost, and have for a long time.
Timmy Solomito has experienced growing pains in his first few seasons like most drivers new to the tour. The tracks are unfamiliar. The competition is as stout as it is deep.
WHAT TO WATCH FOR
SOPHIA, N.C. - After the start he's had to the 2016 NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour season Burt Myers probably wishes the annual spring break wasn't around the corner.
Myers, who recorded only two wins in his previous 54 starts at Caraway Speedway, was able to hold off his brother Jason on a green-white-checkered finish to score his second straight win at the track.
Bristol, Tenn. - Chad Finchum defended his home turf.
The Knoxville, Tennessee native rocketed away from defending race-winner Kyle Benjamin on the final restart with 10 laps left in Saturday's Pitt Lite 125 at Bristol Motor Speedway to capture the checkered flag – his first NASCAR K&N Pro Series East victory in 13 career starts.

PittLite 125 Race Setup:
• Spencer Davis heads into Bristol with a three point lead over his Ranier Racing with MDM teammate Kyle Benjamin (125-122).
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – George Brunnhoelzl III hopes to pick up one more win before the NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour’s annual Spring Break. The friendly confines of Caraway Speedway may provide the perfect recipe.
Brunnhoelzl, who already owns the Caraway record for most tour wins with 12, heads to the .455-mile track for the Dogwood 150 on a two-race win streak. The four-time tour champion has used wins at Concord and South Boston Speedways to move within one point of leader Burt Myers (133-132), who won the season opener at Caraway in March.

THOMPSON, Conn. -- Timmy Solomito's dreams came true Sunday afternoon.
The 24-year-old from Islip, New York, ran away with the 42nd Annual Icebreaker at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park to secure his first career NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour victory. Solomito powered past former champion and current NASCAR XFINITY Series driver Ryan Preece to lead the final 34 laps of the Icebreaker 150 en route to the checkered flag.
"I never thought this day would come," Solomito said. "You lie in bed thinking about things like this. This is a dream come true."
SOUTH BOSTON, Va. – It didn’t take a late-race pass like last week to get the win, but George Brunnhoelzl III had to work hard to score his second straight NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour triumph.
Brunnhoelzl passed Andy Seuss on Lap 125 to regain the lead and held off Burt Myers to win the South Boston 150 at South Boston Speedway on Saturday.
The victory was the 27th of his storied career and he now joins Seuss as the only driver to score multiple wins at the historic .4-mile track located in South Boston, Virginia.
