Fifth win at Martinsville, 70th of career
Martinsville, VA — As the most successful competitor in the 25 years of the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour, there are few milestones that Mike Stefanik has yet to attain. On Sunday in the Made In America Whelen 300 at Martinsville Speedway, Stefanik crossed two more off the list.
Stefanik wrestled the lead away from Todd Szegedy on Lap 180 and kept it through two late restarts to earn the 70th victory of his illustrious career in the combination race with the NASCAR Whelen Modified and Whelen Southern Modified Tours. A seven-time Whelen Modified Tour champion, and the winningest driver in Tour history, Stefanik also notched his fifth career win at the 0.526-mile oval on Sunday, a Tour record at the historic facility.
