Jason Christley, NASCAR

WINCHESTER, N.H. – Timmy Solomito was on cruise control Sunday.

The Islip, New York, driver led every lap – twice pulling away from the field on late-race restarts – as he drove to Victory Lane in the Dunleavy's 200 at Monadnock Speedway. It was the third NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour win of the season for Solomito.

It was the second straight win on one of tour's bullrings. Solomito won at his home track, New York's Riverhead Raceway on June 25. He opened the season at Connecticut's Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park with his first career victory.
