Mike Stefanik Readies For NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour UNOH Battle At The Beach In Daytona

A new team dynamic for seven-time NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour champion Mike Stefanik will make its debut in Daytona, Fla. next month.

Stefanik, who competed in 2012 on the Whelen Modified Tour for car owners Ed Marceau and Chris Our will be down to one team owner for 2013.

Stefanik, of Coventry, R.I., will race soley for Our in 2013 with Brad Lafontaine remaining as the team’s crew chief. Stefanik will go from competing in a No. 66 numbered ride to No. 22.

Stefanik will be on hand when the Whelen Modified Tour hits a specially made .4-mile short track at Daytona International Speedway for the UNOH Battle at the Beach Feb. 18-19.

“At Daytona, whether you win on the road course, the big track or the small track, the trophy will be worth its weight in gold,” Stefanik said in a release from NASCAR.

Stefanik locked in a starting spot in the Battle at the Beach by virtue of his Whelen Modified Tour victory in July at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

“I don’t really know that much about how the track is going to race, I just know our car owner wants to go,” Stefanik said. “It’s going to be good for our team to get together and get a race in before things really get going around here [New England], so that’s always a bonus.”

    Doesn't number 22 belong to Chuck Hossfeld?

  2. I don't think Chuck has ever ran his own car on the Whelen Tour, besides Stefanik is a past champion.

  3. Jason Dell says

    Good Luck Mike.

  4. Good to hear! I really can't wait to see this race.

  5. HOPE IT'S ON T-V.
