Civali gets first 'South' win at South Boston
Connecticut native takes over Whelen Southern Modified points lead

SOUTH BOSTON, Va.– After starting the season winning the pole in Atlanta and finishing third in his most recent NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour race, James Civali felt his first win of the season was just around the corner.

Civali survived a late-race charge by L.W. Miller to win the South Boston 150 Saturday at South Boston Speedway.

Civali and Miller were out front for most of the race as the pair swapped the lead eight times with Miller getting past Civali for the final time on Lap 144. Civali was able to get back by on Lap 147 and hold on for the win.

Miller finished second, while Andy Seuss recovering from an early-race accident that took him out of the lead to finish third. Thomas Stinson was fourth. Zach   Brewer, who won his first Coors Light Pole Award with a track record of 14.765seconds (97.528 mph), finished fifth.

Civali has four wins on the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour, where he was the 2006 Sunoco Rookie of the Year. He was making his fifth start on the southern tour and plans to run both full time this season. He took over the NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour lead by 18 points over Seuss (505-487). The NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour kicks off next weekend.

Tim Brown finished sixth. He started on the point after drawing the pole in the post-qualifying draw of the top eight spots, but was involved in the early accident with Seuss. John Smith, Burt Myers, Brian King and Brian Loftin completed the top 10.

The NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour is off until Friday, July 2 when it races at Caraway Speedway in Asheboro, N.C.
