Defending Tour Champion Cruises to Third NAPA Spring Sizzler Win
STAFFORD, Conn. (April 24, 2016) – Doug Coby didn’t win the season-opener a couple of weeks ago, but he made everyone aware Sunday at Stafford Motor Speedway he’s still the driver to beat to win the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour championship.
Coby started from the pole and led a race-high 193 laps to win the NAPA Spring Sizzler 200 for his 18th career win overall and third in the 45th annual spring event at the historic speedway located in Stafford, Connecticut.
The two-time defending tour champion pulled ahead at the start of the race and quickly built leads by as much as three seconds in the first half of the event. While Justin Bonsignore, Jamie Tomaino, and Ted Christopher were each credited with laps led, Coby left little doubt through the afternoon he had the winning car.
