DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – By Tim Southers, NASCAR — Brenda Meserve/Speed51.com photo — While Andy Seuss continues to enjoy his lead in the standings, no other driver in the NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour is hotter right now than Burt Myers.

The 2010 champion won Saturday night at Southern National Motorsports Park in Lucama, North Carolina. It was his third win in the past four races, including a victory at Caraway Speedway in Sophia, North Carolina, where the tour returns this weekend for the first of back-to-back races at the track.

Myers was able to lead every lap en route to his third win of the season at Southern National and feels he has as good a chance as he ever has had to win again at Caraway in the Zooland 150 in six days.

“This car is so good right now and all it seems we have to do is tweak it a little and she is ready to go,” Myers said. “I can’t wait to get back to Caraway and see if we can make it two in a row there.”

If Myers is able to score a win it would the first time in his storied career that he has won four races in a season. The Walnut Cove, North Carolina, driver won three races in 2013 and also in 2005.

In the championship standings, Seuss leads four-time champion George Brunnhoelzl III by 18 points (465-447) and Myers now sits third just eight points behind Brunnhoelzl for second place. Myers was as far back as sixth prior to his recent hot streak.
