- Lia’s Coronation Friday at Mohegan Sun
- Gathering of Modified Champions a Who’s Who of NASCAR Champions
- Sixteen Champions To Be Honored
Daytona Beach, FL — When Donny Lia steps to the podium Friday to accept the trophy as the 2007 NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour champion, he will extend a lineage of championship drivers that dates back not only to the beginning of the Whelen Modified Tour in 1985 but even further back, to the earlier days of NASCAR.
As NASCAR’s oldest division, the Modified division have always held a special place in NASCAR history. In 2008, both NASCAR and the Modifieds will celebrate their 60th year of racing. And Friday, as Lia is crowned the newest champion, he will be surrounded by some of the sport’s greatest drivers.
