Race Advance by Souza Media
MILFORD, Conn. – One year ago, Doug Coby and Tommy Baldwin Racing paired together for the first time in NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour action, and went to Victory Lane right away. They pulled off the feat at Riverhead Raceway – a track in New York that has a special meaning for Baldwin and the history of the No. 7NY.
This Sunday, the combination returns to Riverhead for the fourth race of the Whelen Modified Tour season, with Mayhew Tools on the side, set for 200 laps, with a green flag of 2:45 p.m. Originally scheduled for Saturday, NASCAR elected to move the race due to impending weather, with a much earlier start time set for Sunday afternoon.
Coby and the team are coming off a win in the Whelen Modified Tour at Monadnock Speedway on May 6 and a third-place finish in the Spring Sizzler at Stafford Motor Speedway on May 13 in their last two events together. The six-time series champion feels like they are heading in a positive direction each time they hit the track.
“There are some adjustments we’ve been able to make that are coming into play to help my driving style and help me so I am comfortable and able to manage the race,” Coby said. “Tommy is learning more and more of my driving style and it’s helping us a lot as we continue to build that relationship you need between the crew chief and the driver. We were good at Riverhead all three times last year – and even though we only won the first one – I have confidence going back there in our car and what we will have. I’m really happy with our last few races and excited to see where all of our work takes us going forward.”
Fans can keep up with all of the action from Riverhead by following Doug Coby Racing on Facebook and Tommy Baldwin Racing on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. The race itself, set for 200-laps, will air live on FloRacing.TV at 2:45 p.m.
