Coby Cracks Icebreaker Victory Lane

Opens Whelen Modified Title Defense With Win At Thompson

THOMPSON, Conn. – After a bitter winter marked by record-setting snowfall, the sunny skies and near-70 degree temperatures at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park on Sunday were celebrated by fans in the packed grandstands.

The only thing better than the weather in northeastern Connecticut was the racing.

Reigning tour champion Doug Coby displayed the consistent dominance that led to last season's title, leading 131 of 150 laps in the 41st Annual Icebreaker 150 to capture the checkered flag in the season-opening NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour event.

The win was Coby's second in 43 career Thompson starts and first in the Icebreaker. Driving the No. 2 Dunleavy's Repair/HEX Performance Chevrolet, Coby started from the pole and stayed in the front of the 35-car field to avoid trouble in a race marked by 10 cautions and two red flags. More Results

Burt Myers Hold Off Kyle Ebersole To Take Checker at Langley

Becomes First Repeat Winner at Langley

Daytona Beach, Fla. – After a John Smith spin in Turn 2 on Lap 45, Burt Myers was forced to the pits to change a cut right rear tire. He thought the early setback ended any chance for a decent finish. He was mistaken.

Myers piloted his No. 1 Remington SCT/Citrusafe/Speedway Auto Auction Ford into first place on Lap 88 of the Pepsi 150 at Langley Speedway and never relinquished the lead, capturing his second consecutive win at the southern Virginia oval and first victory of the 2015 season.  The win gives Myers, the 2010 Whelen Southern Modified Tour champion, a total of 16 career wins on the Tour.

Kyle Ebersole, driving the No. 5 Ebersole Excavating Ford, elected to stay on track as the leaders pitted during cautions at various points during the race, waiting until Lap 140 to get his new tire. Results

Preece Powers To South Boston Victory

Dominant In Second Career Whelen Southern Mod Win

SOUTH BOSTON, Va. – Ryan Preece attained what often seemed to be an inevitable result when he took the NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour checkered flag Saturday at South Boston Speedway, but it wasn't without some late-race drama.

Preece led the South Boston 150 throughout en route to his second career southern tour victory, the majority of the time comfortably in the perch. Two late-race cautions provided an extra challenge for the Berlin, Connecticut, native, but he was able to emerge ahead in both green-white-checkered flag restart attempts for the win.

JR Bertuccio crossed the line second and was joined on the podium by Burt Myers while Eric Goodale and Danny Bohn finished fourth and fifth, respectively. Kyle Ebersole, David Calabrese, Trey Hutchens, Gary Putnam and Jason Myers brought home the top 10. more results / points

Andy Suess Get First Win of 2015 Season

Defending Champ Holds Off Goodale on GWC Finish

SOPHIA, N.C. – What a difference one race can make.

After finishing last in the season opener two weeks ago at Caraway Speedway, Seuss held off Eric Goodale on a green-white-checkered finish to win the Charles Kepley Memorial 150 Saturday in a return to Caraway.  

When Andy Seuss looks back on his 11th career NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour win at the track he will probably think of his crew first.

Seuss' pit crew got him out of the pits first just in front of Eric Goodale on Lap 131, after a spin by Kyle Ebersole brought out the fifth caution flag of the race.

Ryan Preece rebounded from contact with JR Bertuccio on the final restart on Lap 146 to finish third, with Bertuccio and Burt Myers completing the top five. more results

Burt Myers Claims First Win at Hickory Motor Speedway In season Opener

Strategie Pays Off For 2014 Koma Champion

Burt Myers would use a different strategie near the end of the race for the win.

Ryan Preece lived up to his “Preece Lightning” nickname by pacing practices and setting fast time in qualifying with a 14.339. But his car would never be up to snuff in the 125-lap feature, failing to lead even a single lap.

Early on in the race Spencer Davis looked like he had the car that was going to lap the field, but cautions would cause his lead vanish. more results

 

Eric Goodale First NWSMT Win at Caraway

Wins NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour Opener

Sophia, N.C. (Mar. 15, 2015) – Eric Goodale started his season off hot, winning the season opening Spring Classic 150 at Caraway Speedway on Sunday.

The 29-year-old Riverhead, New York, driver became the second NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour driver to win the season-opening NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour race.

Goodale was able to pass Jason Myers on Lap 124 on a restart and led the final 26 laps to earn his first career win on the southern tour. He started eighth in his No. 58 GAF Roofing/Supreme Skylights Chevrolet.

Myers held on for second.

John Smith, who missed last season with a broken wrist, made his return a successful one with a third-place finish. David Calabrese and Bobby Measmer Jr. rounded out the top five. . Race Results
