COBY CLAIMS ANOTHER 'MAGIC MILE' WIN
Moves Into 7th All-Time On NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour Win List

By any measure, Doug Coby has compiled quite a decorated career. But the three-time NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour champion is far from done piling up the accomplishments.

The 36-year-old from Milford, Connecticut, added to his length resume Saturday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Coby drove the No. 2 Dunleavy Repair/A&J Romano Construction Chevrolet to win in New England 100.

Coby led the final six laps and crossed the finish line .037 seconds ahead of Donny Lia.

The win was the 20th of Coby's career, moving him into a tie with former champion Rick Fuller for seventh all-time. It was also Coby's second straight win at "Magic Mile" and fourth overall.

"If you're a New England Modified racer, this is what you race for: To win at Loudon," Coby said.

Coby led eight times for 55 laps in a race that featured 22 lead changes among four drivers. Lia led 25 laps. The race was slowed by caution only once, for the halfway break.

Patrick Emerling finished third. Ron Silk, who won the Coors Light Pole Award earlier in the day, was fourth and NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Ryan Newman came home fifth.

Ryan Preece, Woody Pitkat, Justin Bonsignore, Eric Goodale and Todd Szegedy completed the top 10.

With his third win of the season, Coby extended his championship points lead to 32 points over Lia. Bonsignore is another eight points back.

The New England 100 will air on NBCSN on Thursday, July 21 at 7 p.m.

It will be a quick turnaround for the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour, as it heads to Monadnock Speedway in Winchester, New Hampshire.
