ATTLEBORO, Mass. – JDV Productions announced today that Critical Screen Printing, located in Uncasville, Connecticut, has been named the exclusive apparel company of JDV Productions. 

As part of the partnership, Critical Screen Printing will produce all merchandise that will be on sale at the track on race day as well as online at JDVProductions.com. They are also going to be providing a $100 contingency award at all four JDV Productions NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour races – the “Critical Move of the Race” award will be given to the driver who made the best, most critical move of the race, as voted on by JDV officials.

“I’ve been working with Diego and Rachel at Critical Screen Printing for a few years on projects for JDV Productions and they are next-to-none,” Taylor Pellitier, Director of Marketing for JDV Productions, said. “I’m excited that they see the value in producing the same, high-quality merchandise you would see at national level events. Our goal with JDV Productions is to bring regional events at a national quality, and they are the perfect partner to help make that happen. With them being heavily involved in the local racing community, they understand how important it is to give back to the drivers. Partnering with them to give an additional contingency award makes our partnership even more aligned with what we stand for at JDV Productions.”

Online and at the track, fans will be able to purchase hats, hoodies, t-shirts and more for JDV Productions events. Critical Screen Printing will also produce the exclusive hats that will come with fans purchasing the JDV Experience.

“A chance to partner up with JDV Productions makes perfect sense for us,” Diego Monahan, owner of Critical Screen Printing, said. “JDV Productions is a company moving forward, with class and professionalism, and I couldn’t think of anyone else we would rather team up with for the ultimate success. This is a great example of racing families working together for one common goal – the love of the sport. We are honored that JDV has picked us for all of their merchandise sales, as we take so much pride in what we do. We are also very excited about the chance to honor a driver with the Critical Move of the Race contingency award for all four events.”

Justin Bonsignore Completes Thompson Sweep & Celebrates Championship

Caps 2018 NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour Title Run With Eighth Victory

THOMPSON, Conn. — Justin Bonsignore couldn’t have dreamt of a better way to end his championship season on the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour.

Bonsignore captured his eighth win of the season in the Sunoco World Series 150 at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park, ending his title run by celebrating both a race win and a dominating championship.

The win allowed the Holtsville, New York, driver to become the fourth driver in the modern era of the Whelen Modified Tour to sweep all of the events at Thompson in the same season. Steve Park (1996), Mike Stefanik (1998) and Doug Coby (2015) are the other three to accomplish the feat.

“It’s been unreal, ever since we unloaded at Myrtle Beach, we have had a great race car at every single race track,” Bonsignore said. “To come here and to sweep the season, there are only a few select people who have done that, and it means a lot to me. It’s important.”

Bonsignore started third, but ran just outside the top five for the first half of the race. During a caution on lap 81, he rolled the No. 51 Phoenix Communications Chevrolet to pit road and changed tires. Quick work by his team allowed him to exit the leader of the race, and he never relinquished the top spot.

“We didn’t have the best car, but the pit crew did a great job and got us out there in the end. The car was really good on the second set of tires,” Bonsignore said. “It was the same thing we did all year at Thompson. We were going to race hard because we didn’t have anything to lose today.”

He defeated Chase Dowling by 97 points in the final championship standings, with an average finish of 3.4 and top-10 finishes in all but one event.

Jon McKennedy used a late stop for tires, and passed Ron Silk in the final turn, capping his season with a second. Silk was third, followed by Ryan Preece, who led a race-high 83 laps. Burt Myers rounded out the top five.

Doug Coby was sixth, followed by Matt Swanson, Bobby Santos III, Chris Pasteryak and Eric Goodale.

The Sunoco World Series 150 will air on NBCSN on Thursday, October 18, 7 p.m.

Bonsignore and his Kenneth Massa Motorsports team will be honored with the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour top finishers arnd special award winners at the NASCAR Awards Charlotte on Friday, Dec. 7.
