LOUDON, N.H. – Domination has been the theme of 2018 on the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour for Justin Bonsignore.

And that was the case Friday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in preparation for Saturday’s Musket 250.

Bonsignore, of Holtsville, N.Y., led the way in the second and final practice Friday for the Musket 250.

Bonsignore toured the 1.058-mile oval with a fast lap of 28.883 seconds in the second practice session.

Bonsignore also topped the speed charts in the first practice of the day.

Bonsignore has won seven of 13 Whelen Modified Tour events this season. He also won the non-points Whelen All-Star Showdown for the Whelen Modified Tour in July at New Hampshire.

Bonsignore, who has one career points race victory at NHMS, is looking to essentially put the locks on his first series championship this weekend at NHMS. A quality showing Saturday for Bonsignore could put him in a position where he could likely need only to start the penultimate event of the season – the NAPA Fall Final at Stafford Motor Speedway on Sept. 30 – to clinch the title.

Andy Seuss of Hampstead, N.H. was second fastest during the final practice at 28.915 seconds. Ron Silk of Norwalk, who was third fastest in the first practice, backed that up with a third fastest showing in the second practice at 28.916 seconds.

Chase Dowling of Roxbury (29.056 seconds) and Jeff Rocco of Wallingford (29.078 seconds) rouded out the top-five respectively.


  1. Who’s car is Jeff Rocco driving ?

  2. Jeff,

    The Eddie Harvey Racing No. 1 car.

  3. Wonder why Bert Meyers isn’t in the 1 car. Did God take his talent away?

  4. Rob,
    He’s in the 11 car.

  5. Thanks Shawn, just can’t get over his ” God gave me talent” remark
