Last week Craig Lutz found out that after four plus years driving for team owner Russell Goodale that his ride was going away.

This week Lutz will be back on track with the series, albeit for just a one-race appearance.

Lutz will fill in for Anthony Nocella in the No. 82 Danny Watts Racing ride for Saturday’s Whelen Modified Tour Miller Lite 200 at Riverhead Raceway.

Team owner Danny Watts said Nocella is committed to competing in the ISMA SuperModified event at Star Speedway in Epping, N.H. on Saturday.

“The only reason we’re doing it is because Anthony has a commitment to run that SuperModified,” Watts told RaceDayCT. “… Anthony will be right back in the car at Stafford. The Nocella family and me have a great deal worked and he was committed to that. Craig was available and he’s driven for me before and he’s a good shoe. We just needed to cover ourselves for one race and it’s all good.”

Lutz is one of 24 drivers on the entry list for the penultimate event of the 2021 season for the Whelen Modified Tour at Riverhead. It marks the third appearance for the series this year at Riverhead. Six-time series champion Doug Coby has won both events at the historic Long Island oval in 2021.

After Riverhead the series will run its season finale NAPA Fall Final 150 at Stafford Speedway on Sept. 25
