CONCORD, N.C. – Although he wasn’t able to close out his third championship last week at Caraway Speedway, all that George Brunnhoelzl III needs to do is take the green flag this Thursday night at the UNOH Southern Slam 150 at Charlotte Motor Speedway and he can start planning to celebrate.
Brunnhoelzl, from West Babylon, N.Y., also has more than a championship to think about this week at Charlotte as he looks to rebound from last year’s frustrating finish at CMS. Brunnhoelzl led a race-high 124 laps before Tim Brown took the lead on a late restart and held on for the win.
“A win at Charlotte is something every driver wants to have on his resume,” said Brunnhoelzl. “We had a great car and hopefully we can keep it out front again this year and I can’t think of a better way to end our season than win the UNOH Southern Slam 150.”
Although he doesn’t want to talk about the title, Brunnhoelzl knows he is about to make history on Thursday night.
“It will be a special moment and I look forward to sharing it with my family and friends at Charlotte,” Brunnhoelzl added.
While Brunnhoelzl is all but set to celebrate, there are several more points battles to be decided at CMS. Jason Myers leads Danny Bohn by just two points for second place (377-375) and Tim Brown is fourth at 360.
Andy Seuss continues his impressive run to finish the season and sits in fifth with 349 points. He leads Kyle Ebersole by just six points (343) heading into the finale.
