BRISTOL, Tenn. – Eric Goodale entered the Bush’s Beans 150 at Bristol Motor Speedway looking to continue his recent run of solid finishes in the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour.
After his performance in the eighth annual combination race with the NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour.
Goodale took the lead over Todd Szegedy midway just after the restart after a rain delay and held on during a late restart with two laps to go to collect his second career win.

Donny Lia, who won the inaugural combination race at Bristol in 2009, overcame an illness to finish third. Patrick Emerling followed in fourth with northern tour points leader Doug Coby fifth.
Ryan Preece was sixth while Bobby Santos, Ron Silk, Kyle Ebersole, and Jeff Goodale rounded out the top 10.
Ebersole used his ninth-place finish to lead the southern tour and get credit for his third career win.
