Helps Whelen Modified Legend Score First Title as Owner
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Shawn Solomito helped a NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour legend complete his bucket list in 2016 at New York’s Riverhead Raceway.
Solomito, who turns 28 this week, captured his second track championship at Riverhead in the modified division and in doing so helped 1994 NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour champion Wayne Anderson claim his first Riverhead track championship as a car owner at the quarter-mile speed plant.
“We had one of those seasons that was like a dream season,” said Solomito, who also won the Riverhead track title in 2012 driving a family-owned car. “We won five features, we hardly tore up any equipment and I think we finished top three every night except for like three nights last year.”
