As the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour prepares to kick off the 2020 season Sunday at Jennerstown Speedway, six-time and defending series champion Doug Coby has announced that his newly formed team, Doug Coby Racing, has formed a partnership with Steve Pickens and Pic’s Motorsports in his quest to become a seven-time series champion.

The partnership will allow both organizations to take steps forward with a combination of equipment and knowledge that will put Coby’s No. 10 team in a better position to compete for wins and ultimately, another championship.

“I first met Steve this winter when we were trying to find a new car owner for the No. 2 (Mike Smeriglio III owned) team, and we really hit it off. Through our discussions about racing and life we learned that we have similar interests in helping rescue dogs and had a great time talking about Quarter Midget racing, which is where I started racing as did Steve’s son Austin,” explained Coby. “Once I decided to form my own team, Steve reached out and wanted to be a part of it so we were able to put some ideas together on how we could team up. He’s got a lot of business knowledge and is someone who I think can really help me run my organization in a more efficient manner. It’s just the beginning and the partnership will evolve over time, but I’m really excited to work with Steve and Pic’s Motorsports.”

Through the partnership, Coby has added a brand new LFR chassis to the Doug Coby Racing stable, which the team hopes to debut at the Tour’s second race of the season at White Mountain Motorsports Park in Woodstock, N.H. on July 4. 

“In order to compete for championships on the Tour, you have to have the best equipment, and adding a second LFR chassis to our team will allow us to switch between the two cars as needed. Steve has been a loyal customer of LFR for years and is good friends with Rob Fuller of LFR Chassis, and of course Rob and the LFR program were instrumental to the success I had with the 2 team. Our plan is to continue working with Rob and LFR as the DCR/Pic’s Motorsports partnership grows. and we feel like this puts us in a good spot to move forward with whatever schedule NASCAR is able to put together for the Tour this season. We are going to try to have the car ready for the race at White Mountain so that we can get both cars on the track as early as possible this season,” said Coby.

Coby and the Mayhew Tools/Modzelewski’s Towing sponsored No. 10 Doug Coby Racing team will make their NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour debut this Sunday in the Morocco Welding Wade Cole Memorial 133 presented by Dunleavy’s Truck and Trailer Repair at Jennerstown (Pa.) Speedway. The green flag flies at 2:30 PM and race fans can tune in live to watch the race via the NBC Sports Gold TrackPass app.

  1. I like and respect Doug and all, but that paint scheme? Gezzzz..

    He had a white 10 sk at Waterford back in the day. Can’t remember who owned it. But it was probably the best looking car that year.
