Reigning NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour champion Andy Seuss will be making a northern trip Wednesday.

Seuss, of Hampstead, N.H., will compete in Wednesday’s NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour Budweiser 150 at Thompson Speedway.

Seuss will jump in the seat normally occupied by Ted Christopher for team owner Bob Katon. Christopher will be driving for Our Motorsports at Thompson and at the next Whelen Modified Tour event on Aug. 19 at Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway.

“I’m real excited for a number of reasons,” Seuss said. “They’ve been running really well. I’ve driven for Bob before. They’re a lot of fun to work with. It will also be the first time I’ve ever driven a spec motor so I’m really looking forward to that.”

It will mark the third Whelen Modified Tour start of the season for Seuss. He was 27th in the Andy Blacksmith 100 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway on July 18 driving a family owned car. He combined efforts with Katon’s team to run at the Whelen Modified Tour O’Reilly Auto Parts 200 at Monandnock Speedway in Winchester, N.H. on July 25. He was eighth in that event.

Katon was suddenly looking for a driver this week when Christopher finalized a deal Monday to run for Our Motorsports. Seuss will compete for his normal Eddie Harvey owned Whelen Southern Modified Tour team in the Bush’s Beans 150 Aug. 19 at Bristol. He is currently fifth in the Whelen Southern Modified Tour standings with one win this year. The Bush’s Beans 150 is a combination event for the Whelen Modified Tour and Whelen Southern Modified Tour.

It’s unclear what the future holds for Katon and Christopher after Bristol, but Seuss made it clear that he is on a one-race deal now for the car owner.

“Obviously I can’t do anything for them at Bristol. I’d love to do with more,” Seuss said. “They’re a great group to work with. I’d like to think he thinks I can get the job done and I know we work well together.”

Seuss has 34 Whelen Modified Tour starts dating back to 2006 with one career top-five and eight top-10’s. He has eight career starts with the division at Thompson with one top-10.


  1. Could be worth the price of a ticket. Teddy reunited with Brad LaFontaine in a top notch ride.

  2. just a fan says

    the 22 has not been running like a top notch ride for a long time ….bristol the only bright spot otherwise hit or miss …with more miss than hit with 3 different drivers …if the car is right it goes with all 3 …if not the driver takes hit ….looks more like a problem in the garage ….big big money going on there but not getting your moneys worth ….also remember brad and teddy are like oil and water …ran eddie whalen out of the sport ….

  3. just a fan says

    also teddy is VERY VERY hard to get along with …its only a matter of when not if it blows up ….looks like for bob katon is when …

  4. It is when…that is why Teddy went to the 22 for now he knew he wasn’t going to Bristol with the 13 after his Monadnock stunt. It may also carry over for the New Hampshire race word has it.

  5. Katon is 9th in owner points with 6 events left. Plenty of reason to push forward without TC. Seuss only has the one conflict. I’d like to see him finish out the season for them. Maybe Civali for Bristol?

  6. Shawn do you know if Bob Fill will be with the 13 team tomorrow?

  7. Mike,
    I don’t know if he will be with the team, but I do know that Bob Katon is listed as the crew chief for the team on the entry list.

  8. What has become of Steve Masse. I think he would be a wise choice if a seat is available.

  9. TC referred to financial issues when he skipped Monadnock and when he opted to take the 2 race deal from Chris Our. I have no idea how TC and Bob Katon funded their joint effort, but it could be that TC is tapped out (for racing).

  10. Youhavenoidea says

    I highly doubt Tc is tapped out
