Les Hinckley, III will be driving for Spearpoint Racing for the inaugural  Exit Realty Modified Touring Series (MTS) season. Hall of Famer car owner Art Barry called to ask about Hinckley’s plans. The opportunity came through a voicemail from Barry Thursday and the deal came together during the follow-up call.

“The guy’s absolutely a legend in racing,” Hinckley said. “The racing community and racing in general has been lucky to have a man like that to have him for as long as we have because he just lives and dies for racing.  … For him to call me and ask me to drive his racecar and to be excited about it the way he is is just its humbling. The list of names that have been in his car for me to be one of ’em it really puts me in check. This is bigger than me and I can’t thank Art enough for thinking highly enough about me to be worthy to drive his race car.”

Barry wants to win one more race before he retires. Barry competed last season on the Northeast Race Cars & Parts Tri-Track Open Modified Series (TTOMS) with Justin Bonsignore.

“I think he’s really good,” Barry said. “He’s a gentleman. He talks to you and he’s very, very good about reasoning things out, working together, and he’s really good on equipment that’s for sure. I’m kind of looking forward to it.”

Hirschman Looks to Continue Myrtle Beach Success

Matt Hirschman of Northampton, PA discounts his experience at Myrtle Beach (SC) Speedway ahead of Saturday’s NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour opener. He cited teams that privately tested or competed in a 50-lap Modified race last month, where he finished third. Hirschman has three consecutive podiums at Myrtle Beach.

“It’s not gonna be totally foreign to them,” Hirschman said. “But it’s a unique place and having raced there now a few times over the last year and a half certainly helps and we have won a race there which is always a boost of confidence.”

The tire wear at the half-mile oval is well known. Last month’s Modified race demonstrated conservation’s role with part of the field dropping back to preserve tires.

“There are abrasive tracks and then there’s Myrtle Beach. It’s hard to explain but it’s definitely the extreme on that end. It’s really unlike any other track I’ve run at.”

Coby, J. Chambers Take Down NEMA Wins in Bemer’s Big Show at Speedbowl

2016 NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour champion Doug Coby charged from the sixth starting position in his Bertrand Motorsports #74 entry, after a side by side battle with teammate Todd Bertrand en route to his second Northeastern Midget Association win of the season Sunday evening at the New London-Waterford Speedbowl. In the Lites division, Jim Chambers sliced his way through the pack, and dominated the second half of the feature en route to victory and the 2016 Lites championship.

The story of the evening, however, revolved around the tight NEMA points battle between Randy Cabral and John Zych. Cabral came into the event with a thirteen point lead, and extended that to seventeen after NEMA’s time trial qualifying on Sunday afternoon. As the NEMA cars were staging, Cabral was participating in the Pro Four Modified feature event, as he also had at the Sunoco World Series, finishing second the previous weekend. Cabral’s car came to a stop in turn two with handling issues, and was unfortunately hit extremely hard in the driver’s door. After extricating him from the top of the vehicle, he was transported to a local hospital, later deemed to have broken ribs, a concussion, and bruising.

The NEMA feature would go on, with Zych locking up the Driver’s Championship by virtue of starting the feature. Joey Payne, who was quickly fitted into the Bertrand 47, would start at the tail of the field. When the green flag flew, Todd Bertrand would jump out into the lead from the pole, and was followed by Seth Carlson in the Feigel #71. Further back, teammate Doug Coby in the Bertrand #74, was using the high line to slice his way to the front. Coby was second by lap three when the caution flew for a Bethany Stoehr spin in turn four.
