Bonsignore Earns Third Win At Home

To Sweep At Riverhead Raceway

RIVERHEAD, N.Y. – Justin Bonsignore joined elite company Saturday night when he drove to a NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour season sweep of events at Riverhead Raceway.

Bonsignore grabbed the lead from Doug Coby on Lap 115 and held on through six caution restarts to take down a third career victory at his home track, and second in two tries in 2015.

A 12th and final caution came out on Lap 199 just after Bonsignore had taken the white flag in his No. 51 M3 Technology Chevrolet, and he came around to a yellow-checkered. It was the eighth career victory overall for the Holtsville, New York native.

In the process he became just the fifth driver in 31 years of Whelen Modified Tour racing to sweep a season at the venerable Long Island bullring.

Coby and his No. 2 Dunleavy's Repair/A&J Romano Construction Chevrolet finished second, while rookie Chase Dowling, Donny Lia and Eric Goodale rounded out the top-five. Results

Brown Outlasts Rivals To Win 10th BGS Title

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Tim Brown continues to make history at one of NASCAR's most iconic tracks.

Brown clinched his 10th NASCAR track championship at historic Bowman Gray Stadium in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, last Saturday night to add to his record-setting collection of title trophies at his home track. Brown edged rival Jason Myers by 24 points in the final standings (808-784) after the 150-lap season finale.

“After all these years and championships I still can't believe it sometimes,” Brown said. “My grandfather (Eb Clifton) raced there years ago and I would go as a kid to watch him and dreamed of just being able to get out on the track and race, much less win one race or even a championship.”

While Brown only had four wins to Myers' seven, the Cana, Virginia, driver was quick to point out the strong season Myers had.

“We didn't have the best car all year but we stuck to our game plan and kept working to find speed all season long,” Brown said. “Jason was fast all year and had a great season. If it wasn't for some bad luck he had on a double-points night, he might be the one celebrating right now instead of us.”

The third-generation driver, who works for Michael Waltrip Racing full-time in addition to racing all season long at Bowman Gray, said it was a complete team and family effort that got him to this point. He's now ready to make the trip to Charlotte in December to be recognized at the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Awards Ceremonies.

“It's get hard and tougher every year to find the time and energy to work and race full-time,” Brown said. “There's no way I could have done it this year without the support of my wife (Megan), my brother Ben, crew chief Mark Ruhmann and all the guys on the crew.”

With just under a month remaining in the season, who joins Brown in Charlotte is still far from decided. more results

Patience Pays Off For Preece

Wins Delayed, Shortened Bristol Whelen Modified Race

BRISTOL TN. ( August 19th. 2015) - Ryan Preece positioned himself in the right place at the right time, and took home the Bush's Beans 150 trophy Wednesday in the annual combination race for the NASCAR Whelen Modified and Whelen Southern Modified Tours.

On a night that saw rain pause, and ultimately shorten the Bush's Beans 150, Preece grabbed the lead on Lap 75 just before the midway break and held the position during a subsequent caution on Lap 96. As rain and severe thunderstorms loomed during track clean-up, NASCAR officials threw the yellow-checkered flag on Lap 103, sending Preece's No. 6 TS Haulers/East West Marine Chevrolet to Victory Lane.

Seuss was the highest-finishing Whelen Southern Modified Tour entry, and received credit for a victory for that tour. more results

Doug Cody Wins "Budwieser 150" at Thompson Speedway

Makes It Three In A Row At Thompson

THOMPSON CT. ( August 12 th. 2015) - Doug Coby's march to a third NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour championship included a rally through the field Wednesday night.

Coby rebounded from a late-race penalty to take the Budweiser King of Beers 150 at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park. The No. 2 Dunleavy's Truck & Trailer Repair/A&J Romano Construction Chevrolet took the lead on the race's final restart with eight to go and Coby drove to his third straight win at the .625-mile oval.

Championship contender Woody Pitkat settled for second and regained the points lead following the 10th of 15 races. Ryan Preece, who began the night with a four-point lead on Pitkat, finished sixth.

Pitkat now leads Preece by one point, and Coby is seven points back. more results

Preece Scores Another Stafford Victory

Assumes Whelen Modified Points Lead

STAFFORD, Conn. (August 7th, 2015) -- Heading into the home stretch of the 2015 NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour season, a trio of drivers are leading the championship charge.

Friday night's Call Before You Dig 150 at Stafford Motor Speedway did little to separate them, although 2013 champion Ryan Preece moved to the front of the line, courtesy of his third win of the season.

Preece's No. 6 TS Haulers/East West Marine Chevrolet was out front for the final 69 laps en route to his third win of the season and 14th of his career. Five of Preece's wins have come on Stafford's half-mile, including a victory in June's TSI Harley-Davidson 125

Challengers Doug Coby and Woody Pitkat followed close behind in second and third.

With nine races down and six remaining, Preece now leads Pitkat, who began the race with the points lead, by four tallies and defending champion Coby by 13. Todd Szegedy, who entered the night just two behind Coby, finished 16th and is now 30 points out of first. More Results

Bohn Back In Bowman Gray Victory Lane

Second-Straight Whelen Southern Mod Triumph At The Stadium

Winston Salem, N.C. (August 1st, 2015) – The first names that come to mind when referring to modified racing at Bowman Gray Stadium are usually Brown, Miller and Myers. Danny Bohn is doing his best to get in the conversation.

Bohn, from Freehold, New Jersey, captured the checkered flag in the Strutmasters.com 199 Saturday night in NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour action. It was his second win in a row in the event.

Bohn also earned the 2014 NASCAR Whelen All-American Series track championship at the Bowman Gray quarter-mile in 2014 out of the weekly modified division – a division won so many times by Tim Brown, Junior Miller and Burt Myers.

Bohn gained the lead from George Brunnhoelzl III for the final time on Lap 155 and held on through three restarts. Polesitter Ryan Preece rallied from a flat tire early in the event to cross the finish line second while Jeremy Gerstner grabbed his first career podium in third place. More Results

Coby Conquers Monadnock

Veteran Scores First Win At New Hampshire Track

MONADNOCK, N.H. (July 25, 2015) – While the statistics sheet might make it look like it was an easy win it was anything but that for Doug Coby. 

Although he led the final 166 laps of the O'Reilly Auto Parts 200, Coby had to hold off a hard-charging Woody Pitkat to score his third NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour win of the season at Monadnock Speedway.

Coby passed Ryan Preece on Lap 45 and was able to remain at the point in the caution filled race.

Pitkat followed closely in second with Justin Bonsignore coming up just a little short in his bid for a third straight win at the quarter-mile track finishing third. Todd Szegedy and Troy Talman completed the top five.

Eric Goodale rebounded from an early incident to finish sixth with Shawn Solomito, Andy Seuss, Chase Dowling, and Preece rounding out the top 10. More Results

Myer's Win "Wreath of America 125" at Anderson motor Speedway

Jimmy Wallace Denied Victory After Late Caution

Anderson, S.C. (July 17, 2015) – With about 25 laps to go in Friday night's KOMA Unwind Modified Madness Series race at South Carolina's Anderson Speedway, it looked like a near certainty that someone other than brothers Burt and Jason Myers was going to win for the first time in 2015.

The Myers brothers were undefeated in KOMA races this year, but Jason's extended stay in the pits to correct a suspension issue that cost him several laps and Burt lost lap following a late-race pit stop, it appeared that the door was open for Jimmy Wallace, Tom Buzze or Dan Speeney, who all led laps in the latter stages of the 125-lap feature, to end the five-race Myers brother stranglehold on victory lane.
