MOORESVILLE, N.C. – Tommy Baldwin Racing (TBR) announced today that six-time NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour champion Doug Coby will pilot the No. 7NY for select Tour events in 2024. The team will begin the season at New Smyrna Speedway for the World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing and the Whelen Modified Tour opener on Saturday, February 10.
The team plans to run seven of the 16 Whelen Modified Tour events.
TBR will compete at Richmond Raceway on Friday, March 29, Riverhead Raceway on May 18 and New Hampshire Motor Speedway as part of NASCAR’s National Series weekend on June 22. The combination will return to the track on Wednesday, August 14 at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park, Saturday, October 5 at North Wilkesboro Speedway and Saturday, October 26 at Martinsville Speedway.
“Tommy has a deep racing history in the Modified community and when you drive for him, you know he’s going to bring fast cars to the track,” Coby said. “Having the opportunity to work with them again in 2024 to simply try to win races is something I’m really excited for.”
Coby and Baldwin first paired together in 2022 and won events at Riverhead Raceway and Lee USA Speedway in their first two races together. They also picked up a victory at Langley Speedway that season – one that saw Tommy Baldwin Racing seal the Whelen Modified Tour owner’s championship with multiple different drivers. Coby drove the No. 7NY in 13 events last season with one victory and six top-five finishes.
“Doug is a proven winner and champion and we’re happy he’s back with us for 2024,” Tommy Baldwin Jr. said. “We’ve selected a great list of events to compete on the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour at some of their biggest races. We’re looking forward to having Doug back in the seat and it will be all about trying to get trophies.”
The addition of Doug Coby to the 2024 Tommy Baldwin Racing lineup is yet another piece of what will be a busy season, including the likes of Luke Baldwin, Jack Baldwin, Bryan Narducci and Doug Coby.

Narducci To Split SK Modified With Jack Baldwin at Stafford Motor Speedway
MOORESVILLE, N.C. — Tommy Baldwin Racing announced today that Bryan Narducci will join the team for the 2024 season, competing part-time in an SK Modified at Stafford Motor Speedway. Narducci will split the ride with TBR driver Jack Baldwin, announced on Wednesday to run 11 events during the 2024 season. Narducci will fill out the remainder of the schedule in the SK Modified.
The team will have assistance from Ken Barry with SPAFCO, a New England based PSR Chassis dealer, to make weekly racing possible. The entry will be a PSR Chassis.
“Definitely really excited to join Tommy and the team for this opportunity,” Narducci said. “Tommy always brings the best of the best when it comes to equipment. I feel like teaming up with him to run a SK Modified could be a lethal combination.”
Narducci needs no introduction in the Stafford short-track community. He’s a two-time NASCAR Division IV National champion, both coming during his tenure at the front of the field in the SK Light Modified field. Narducci has competed at Stafford in the SK Modifieds for multiple seasons and has multiple wins. He also made multiple Tour-Type Modified starts last year for Boehler Racing.
“Bryan has been around the Tommy Baldwin Racing family for a few years now and we’re happy to get him in a car,” Tommy Baldwin Jr. said. “Bryan is a calculated driver who we know will get the most out of the car. We’re thankful to Ken Barry and his team for their assistance with our PSR Chassis ride and look forward to seeing Bryan and Jack compete for wins at Stafford in 2024.”

Part-Time Stafford Motor Speedway SK Modified Ride; Select Tour-Type Mod & 602 Modified Starts Planned
MOORESVILLE, N.C. – Tommy Baldwin Racing announced today plans for Jack Baldwin for the 2024 season. Jack will compete in a part-time schedule in the SK Modified division at Stafford Motor Speedway in Connecticut, planning for 11 events. He will drive a PSR Chassis - maintained by New England based PSR Chassis dealer SPAFCO - an operation led by veteran Ken Barry.
Baldwin will also compete in his first Tour-Type Modified events in 2024. He will race in three SMART Modified Tour powered by Pace-O-Matic races and also the Islip 300 in November at Riverhead Raceway. All Tour-Type Modified events will come driving the historic 7NY.
Jack’s SMART Modified Tour events will be at Goodyear on August 30, Carteret on August 31 and Caraway on September 7.
“I’m ecstatic to make the move to Tour-Type Modifieds and also compete at Stafford in 2024,” Jack Baldwin said. “Stafford has what I think is the most competitive weekly racing division in the country. I got a taste of it last year, but I’m looking forward to building on what I learned and looking to get to Victory Lane this season. The SMART Modified Tour has a great lineup of drivers and competing with them will be a great learning experience.”
Jack will open the season with 602 Modified events at Caraway Speedway on January 27 and Auburndale Speedway on February 8 and 9. He will also compete during the World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing in the 602 Modified division with events on February 11, 12 and 14.
“Jack’s ready for this move up,” Tommy Baldwin Jr. said. “He’s had success in 602 Modifieds and shown speed when he competed in the SK Modified at Stafford last year. We’re looking forward to seeing him make the jump and appreciate Ken and the SPAFCO team helping to make it possible.”

Bobby Labonte, Jonathan Cash & Luke Baldwin Make-Up Busy Schedule
MOORESVILLE, N.C. – Sadler-Stanley Racing, an open-wheel modified team owned by former NASCAR driver and TV personality Hermie Sadler and Virginia Attorney and State Senator Bill Stanley, announced their 2024 driver lineup Tuesday.
The 2000 NASCAR Cup Series champion, Bobby Labonte, will return to the team for three NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour races and select SMART Modified Tour powered by Pace-O-Matic events. Labonte will compete in NASCAR action at Richmond (March 29), North Wilkesboro (October 5) and Martinsville (October 26). His full SMART Modified Tour schedule will be announced at a later date.
Jonathan Cash will make the jump to full-time competition in the No. 16VA, racing for the title on the SMART Modified Tour powered by Pace-O-Matic. Luke Baldwin, a rising Modified driver and son of former NASCAR Daytona 500 winning crew chief Tommy Baldwin Jr., will also run the 7VA full-time on the SMART Modified Tour powered by Pace-O-Matic. Baldwin’s focus will be to race for the title, but also the Racing Electronics Rookie of the Year in his move to Tour-Type Modifieds in 2024.
The team will continue to operate with PSR Chassis machines. PSR has won the last two SMART Modified Tour titles with Burt Myers and Caleb Heady. SS Racing co-owner Sadler, the 1993 NASCAR Xfinity Series Rookie of the Year, said the team is eager to provide opportunities to some new drivers.
“It’s been really cool to watch drivers like Bobby Labonte and Ryan Newman win in our cars, but now the goal is to provide opportunities to deserving drivers that are trying to make a name for themselves,” Salder said. “Jonathan and Luke fit what we are looking for…. Pace-O-Matic works every day to provide opportunities to small businesses across the states they operate in… and they always fight for the little guy… our goals on the track this year will be to mirror what Pace-O-Matic believes on and off the track with our teams.”
The SS Racing team has been in existence for two years and won multiple events. The team won two races in 2022, including a once-in-a-lifetime win in the return to North Wilkesboro Speedway with the SMART Modified Tour with NASCAR legend Ryan Newman driving. In 2023, the SS Racing returned to Victory Lane twice on the SMART Modified Tour powered by Pace-O-Matic with Labonte piloting the No. 18VA to victory at Tri-County Speedway and Orange County Speedway.
Co-owner Bill Stanley is eager to see the team hit the track for the first time at Florence Motor Speedway on March 2. The full SMART Modified Tour powered by Pace-O-Matic schedule includes 15 events spanning across multiple southern states. The team plans to run just under 20 events during the 2024 season.
“The 2024 season is shaping up to be exciting for our team,” Bill Stanley, team co-owner, said. “Having young drivers like Jonathan Cash and Luke Baldwin running with Bobby Labonte for our Pace-O-Matic team is special. Racing with these PSR Products chassis machines at historic tracks will be a thrill to watch as we contend for wins and a championship in 2024.”
Labonte needs no introduction - as the 200 NASCAR Cup Series champion - he’s a proven winner in multiple different disciplines. A part-time Modified schedule for him in 2024 leaves him with one goal: win.
“I can’t thank Hermie and Bill and everybody at Sadler-Stanley Racing enough,” Labonte said. “We ended the year with two great wins and I’m looking forward to being part of the team again in 2024 for our limited schedule together. I really appreciate the support of Pace-O-Matic and their commitment to racing and the team. I’m also happy to continue to represent Cook Out in our events. I can’t wait to get started.”
Cash, who owns P&P Speed Shop, a racing kart engine and maintenance shop, is excited for the opportunity to go full-time Modified racing. He competed in his first Modified event at Hickory Motor Speedway in 2022 for SS Racing and also competed in 2023. Cash is excited to continue to build on his experience-level in open-wheel, high-speed Modifieds.
“I’m really excited to have the opportunity to drive for SS Racing and PSR Products in 2024,” Cash said. “I’m looking forward to trying to contend for the championship. The last two years, I have run a couple of Modified races each year and had fast race cars in all of them. I want to thank Pace-O-Matic, Hermie Sadler, Bill Stanley, PSR Products and their entire crew and everyone else involved in the opportunity.”
Baldwin has quickly grown to a winner. He picked up multiple victories and the week-long championship at New Smyrna Speedway’s World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing in 2023. He also made his debut on the CARS Pro Late Model Tour, scoring an 11th-place finish in his debut. His jump to Tour-Type Modifieds is something he is excited to see happen. He will also compete part-time in 602 Modifieds for his family-owned team, beginning at New Smyrna in February.
“Definitely couldn’t be more excited for this opportunity to join Sadler-Stanley Racing,” Baldwin said. “This team was on fire the last half of the year and I honestly can’t believe I’m joining them. I’m very excited to grow even closer with this team and build on our relationship. I am extremely grateful to be presented the opportunity and can’t wait to go out there and make the most of it. We’re fighting for Rookie of the Year, but personally, I want to get more than that. I want to win races and this team is more than capable of doing that.”
The month of March will be busy for SS Racing, kicking off at Florence Motor Speedway on March 2, followed by Caraway Speedway on March 10, South Boston Speedway on March 23, Richmond Raceway (NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour) on March 29 and Tri-County Speedway on March 30.
