Coby, of Milford, Connecticut, posted a fast lap of 29.130 seconds (130.752 mph) to notch his eighth career pole overall and third at the 1.058-mile oval. It was his fourth Coors Light Pole of the 2015 season, which includes the Whelen Modified Tour’s first trip to NHMS in July.

Bobby Santos qualified outside pole with a quick circuit of 29.249 (130.220) while Woody Pitkat was third-fastest at 29.256 (130.189).

Timmy Solomito, Justin Bonsignore, Ryan Newman, Anthony Nocella, Andy Seuss and Chase Dowling brought home the top 10 in the 34 car field.

Championship points leader Ryan Preece qualified 17th at 29.616 (128.606) after he led all cars in the morning practice session. He brings a one-point lead in the standings to NHMS over Pitkat while Coby is 25 back in third.

The F.W. Webb 100 will go green on Saturday at approximately 3:30 p.m. following the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series’ UNOH 175. The F.W. Webb 100 will be telecast on NBCSN on Oct. 1 at 7 p.m.

DOUG COBY CLOSES WHELEN MODIFIED SEASON WITH SECOND-PLACE FINISH AT STAFFORD

By Souza Media/Kyle Souza

STAFFORD, Conn. — Doug Coby came up one spot short of ending the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour season in Victory Lane on Saturday, September 25 at Stafford Motor Speedway. Coby drove the No. 10 Mayhew Tools entry to a second-place finish in the NAPA Fall Final 150 to close the 14-race schedule on the podium. 

Coby qualified fifth in Mayhew Tools pole qualifying and ran inside the top-five for the whole race — one that went green until the final 25 laps. During the only pit stop of the night, the Mayhew Tools team went to work — putting fresh rear tires on the car in quick fashion — and giving Coby a shot at the win with their strong pit stop. 

Coby edged Justin Bonsignore to the line for a green-white-checkered restart, but couldn’t quite seal the deal. Bonsignore earned his first Stafford win, while Coby chased him to the line for second. Coby’s finish was enough to score him a fifth-place finish in the driver championship standings, even after missing a race in June. The Doug Coby Racing team also sealed third in the owner’s standings to close the year.

“Justin just had drive-off the corner and I was really tight at the end,” Coby said. “I tried to pinch him down a bit, but I just couldn’t get him. We were just a little bit off. During the long run, we were not great, then good, then not bad. I think if it stayed green, I might have been able to run Justin down. I drove the crap out of the car trying, but we just didn’t have enough. Solid day for our Mayhew Tools team.”
