Coby Conquers Monadnock

Tim Southers, NASCAR

MONADNOCK, N.H. - While the statistics sheet might make it look like it was an easy win it was anything but that for Doug Coby. 

Although he led the final 166 laps of the O'Reilly Auto Parts 200, Coby had to hold off a hard-charging Woody Pitkat to score his third NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour win of the season at Monadnock Speedway.

Coby passed Ryan Preece on Lap 45 and was able to remain at the point in the caution filled race.

QUALIFYING: Preece Saves The Best For Last

Tim Southers, NASCAR

MONADNOCK, N.H. - Ryan Preece loves racing on quarter-mile race tracks and tonight he will start on the front row at Monadnock after he saved the best for last during Coors Light Pole qualifying. 

The Berlin, Conn. driver was the last car to qualify and he drove his No. 6 TS Haulers/East West Marine Chevrolet to a fast lap time of 12.428 seconds (72.417 mph). That lap put him just past Doug Coby who finished his qualifying run at 12.517 (71.902 mph).

Szegedy Finds Redemption At Loudon

By Jason Cunningham, NASCAR

LOUDON, N.H. – Todd Szegedy found a home in the offseason with Bob Garbarino's No. 4 Mystic Missile Racing. And Szegedy repaid them by returning the car to Victory Lane at New Hampshire Motor Speedway Saturday afternoon.

It was the 19th career NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour win and fourth at New Hampshire for the 39-year-old from Ridgefield, Connecticut, but his first since September of 2013.
