Veteran Parks Tommy Baldwin Racing, Mayhew Tools 7NY in Victory Lane
Race Recap by Souza Media
WINCHESTER, N.H. – Doug Coby wasn’t going to leave any questions about who was going to win in the final laps of the third NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour race of the season Saturday at Monadnock Speedway.
Coby pulled away after dominating the Duel at the Dog 200 and rocketed to his 35th career Whelen Modified Tour victory and second career at Monadnock driving the Mayhew Tools No. 7NY. The win was the first of the season for the six-time series champion, as Coby and the team began a busy stretch of four races in four weeks in Victory Lane.
And they did it in dominating fashion – leading the most laps and cruising to the checkered flag.
“We had a dominant car here today,” Coby said. “Tommy Baldwin brought some great adjustments here to try in practice since we weren’t happy with our performance last year, and we ended up going back to his first setup for the race. I’ll tell you what – I’ve won at big tracks, but it’s the little one’s that mean the most and really make me think of my roots and where I started. These quarter-mile tracks are so tough to win at… it was a great day for all of us on the Mayhew Tools team.”
Doug Coby and the Tommy Baldwin Racing, Mayhew Tools team will return to racing on Friday, May 12 and Saturday, May 13 at Stafford Motor Speedway for the NAPA Spring Sizzler 100. The $20,000 to win race will have 40-lap Duel qualifying races on Friday night and the feature on Saturday afternoon, all live on FloRacing.TV.
