RIVERHEAD, N.Y. – Six-time NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour champion Doug Coby captured a 10th place finish on Saturday, June 25 at Riverhead Raceway. Competing for Tommy Baldwin Racing in the Buzz Chew 200, Coby qualified 10th, and ran inside the top-10 for the duration of the race, finishing right where he started.
The run for Coby and Baldwin together marked their fourth top-10 finish in four races this year. Through seven NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour races, Tommy Baldwin Racing leads by 22 points in the owners championship standings, as the series hits the halfway point of the season in their next event. The top-10 finish at Riverhead came in the second of three races at the New York bullring in 2022.
Mayhew Tools joined the famed No. 7NY for this special event.
“We just missed things a little bit in qualifying which caused us to start 10th,” Coby said. “And we had a good enough car to come up from 10th to third, but I got pinned on the bottom on a restart and maybe used up a little bit of what I had. We certainly didn’t have the car with the same forward drive we had in May, and that’s just a product of a couple of small adjustments that we maybe needed to make, and the track being a little bit different with how they prep the surface.”
Doug Coby will return to the track at Seekonk Speedway with the Monaco Modified Tri-Track Series on Wednesday, June 29. Coby will look to add a fourth career victory in the $10,000 to win Open Wheel Wednesday. For more information on Doug Coby Racing, visit DougCobyRacing.com and follow the team on Facebook.
