STAFFORD, Conn. – At the track where he got his start in racing, Stafford Motor Speedway has become home sweet home for Doug Coby during the 2012 NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour season.
Coby, from Milford, Conn., made it three-for-three in Whelen Modified Tour events at the historic half mile so far this year as he turned in another dominant performance for his fourth overall triumph of the campaign.
Coby inherited the lead when leader Eric Beers came to pit road along with the majority of the front-runners on Lap 48. He more than held his own down the stretch, however, as the lead was never relinquished, or really in question. It was his fourth career victory at Stafford.
Jimmy Blewett crossed the line second with Todd Szegedy third. Beers and Ted Christopher rounded out the top five.
Pole winner Ryan Preece, Jon McKennedy, Woody Pitkat, Eric Goodale and Justin Bonsignore completed the top 10.
The NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour will return to action with the Budweiser King of Beers 150 at Thompson (Conn.) International Speedway on Aug. 9.
