Hampton, VA – Snapping a long streak of bad luck, Brunnhoelzl returns to Langley Speedway in dominating fashion. Things did not look to promising early for the four-time series champion, as they were plagued with tire issues early on in practice. Having issues with three different tires, one with a gouge in the sidewall, the other two issues through the tread of the tires. So what does the team do? Set the fast time during qualifying with a time of 15.100 (94.172 MPH)! Andy Seuss, Jason Myers, Kyle Ebersole and Gary Putnam rounded out the top five.
After only a few warm up laps race control rolled up its sleeves and opened the floodgates! In other words, displayed the green flag to GB3 and the rest of the field and boy did Brunnhoezlz come here this weekend to do business! He and Seuss were in a league of their own; ten laps in the two had built a good five-car lead over third place, mind you GB3 was sporting a seven-car lead himself.
The race saw its first caution after the solo spin from the #12 of Mike Norman. Was a quick caution and no one got hurt, only reason we bring it up was the restart really. Suess, like most of the night was able to hang on pretty tough on that outside line for a half of lap or so before Brunnhoezlz would take sole possession on the lead. Now, we are not sure if Seuss tagged the wall but we noticed him dragging something from the right rear. Race control monitoring the situation too found it to be the catch can. What ever those boys used to bolt that puppy in the car because she was just hanging on for the ride.
