It sounds as if NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour champion Doug Coby could be capping off his 2020 racing season dabbling in a new ride at the Sunoco World Series at Thompson Speedway. 

It was announced on the Lane Racing Facebook page Thursday that Coby, a six-time Whelen Modified Tour champion, is scheduled to drive a Howie Lane owned ride in the 50-lap ISMA SuperModified feature on Oct. 11 at Thompson Speedway. 

Team owner Howie Lane was not immediately available Thursday. Coby said he had no comment concerning the team’s announcement.

Lane Racing also announced that Whelen Modified Tour regular Anthony Nocella would team with Coby in another Lane Racing ride for the SuperModified event at Thompson. 

Coby will complete his first season as an owner/driver on the Whelen Modified Tour on Oct. 11 at Thompson with the running of the Sunoco World Series 150. 

Coby goes into the season ending Whelen Modified Tour event second in the series standings, 27 points behind 2018 series champion Justin Bonsignore. 

Coby has one win, six top-five’s, eight top-10’s and one pole in eight Whelen Modified Tour events this season. Bonsignore has three wins, eight top-five’s and two poles in 2020 Whelen Modified Tour action 


  1. BREAKING NEWS: Donald J. Trump has tested POSITIVE for Covid 19. Now you all know my hatred of everything Donald J. Trump. But given this news I am truly praying for your president. And I hope and pray he overcomes this.

  2. If the President, who is tested multiple times a day, can contract this deadly virus, so can you.
    Stay vigilant. Wash your hands frequently. Practice safe social distancing. And for the safety of yourself and those around you, WEAR A MASK. The life you save could be your own.
    Once again, thoughts and prayers for Donald and Melania Trump, as well as Hope Hicks and anyone else who might have been affected, and the countless number of people fighting for their lives at this moment.

    No offense to coby, but I’m more interested in seeing how nocella does in a super. He’s got a ton of midget experience along with modifieds, and i think he has real shot at a good finish. Go get em woburn wing man!!
