Wheels Mayhew Tools No. 7NY To Third-Place Finish
RIVERHEAD, N.Y. – It was a solid night at Riverhead Raceway for Doug Coby and the Tommy Baldwin Racing team on Saturday night, June 24.
Coby finished in the third spot after 200 laps in the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour main event, a night where the track was honoring Mike Ewanitsko. He qualified the car in fourth and shuffled back a bit during the middle of the race. Over the final laps, he passed Kyle Bonsignore for third and ended the night on the podium.
It was the 12th career top-five at Riverhead for the six-time NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour champion.
“The Mayhew Tools No. 7NY was good tonight,” Coby said. “I just couldn't get the grip on the bottom to get by for a run at second. I was a little bit better than Justin (Bonsignore) at the end. Happy for Ron (Silk) and his team, he’s been trying to win for a long time at Riverhead and I know the feeling. There was just one groove out there to race.”
Doug Coby will return to the track on Wednesday, June 28 at Seekonk Speedway with the Monaco Modified Tri-Track Series for the $10,000 to win Open Wheel Wednesday, driving the No. 10 Mayhew Tools. He will return to the track on the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour with Tommy Baldwin Racing in the No. 7NY on Saturday, July 8 at Wall Stadium Speedway.
