Danny Bohn picked up his second career NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour victory on Saturday night in the Strutmasters.com 199 at Bowman Gray Stadium. After taking the white flag lapped cars made contact and Bohn was collected. After spinning around Bohn kept rolling to come across the line under the caution to claim the win.
Kyle Ebersole was challenging Bohn for the win but was not as fortunate as Bohn and he ended up getting caught up with the lap cars and lost a lap.
The 26-year-old Bohn won his first Southern Tour race back in 2012. Bohn was on the pole and dominated the race by leading 196 of the 199 laps. Ebersole led the other three laps.
Cole Powell finished second and Luke Fleming third. Points leader Andy Seuss finished fourth after battling back from a lap 37 spin in Turn 4. Rounding out the top five was rookie Spencer Davis and he was also the last car on the lead lap. Kyle Ebersole's bad break landed him in sixth.
George Brunnhoelzl III finished 16th of the 19 cars after blowing an engine on lap 92.
A five-car accident on lap 104 ended the race for Jason Myers, JR Bertuccio, and Thomas Stinson. They finished 13th, 14th, and 15th. AJ Winstead was also caught up but continued to finish ninth and Bryan Dauzat continued to finish 11th.
After six races this season Andy Seuss' championship lead is up to 33 points over George Brunnhoelzl III. JR Bertuccio is third but 56 points back. Danny Bohn is 58 points back in fourth, and Luke Fleming is 61 back in fifth.
