LOUDON, N.H. – A former series champion, now hired gun, led the way in the second and final NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour practice Friday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

Todd Szegedy, making his first appearance for Rob Fuller Motorsports, was on top of the speed charts after the second Whelen Modified Tour practice Friday morning at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

Szegedy, of Ridgefield, ran a fast lap of 28.901 seconds (131.788 mph) in the second practice in preparation for Saturday afternoon’s Sunoco 100. Qualifying for the event is Saturday morning.

Szegedy parted ways with Mike Smeriglio Racing on the Whelen Modified Tour after last season. He’s running full-time with Kevin Stuart Racing on the Valenti Modified Racing Series this year.

He made his lone Whelen Modified Tour appearance in 2014 on June 28 at Riverhead (N.Y.) Raceway.

Bobby Santos III of Franklin, Mass., who led the first practice session of the morning, was second fastest in the second session at 29.066 seconds (131.040 mph). Sprint Cup Series regular Ryan Newman was third fastest (29.104 seconds, 130.869) in the second session. Ron Silk of Norwalk and Woody Pitkat of Stafford, rounded out the practice speeds in the second session respectively.
