Wednesday Matt Hirschman scored victory in the John Blewett III Memorial 76. Hirschman also scored victory in the 35-lap feature for the divison Thursday.

Denise DuPont, Jim DuPont and Curtis DuPont will oversee our Live Updates coverage tonight New Smyrna.


  1. Where were Justin Bonsignore and Doug Cony?

  2. Mike,
    Justin Bonsignore and Doug Coby are regulars on the Whelen Modified Tour. That series ran its opening event on Saturday at New Smyrna. The Tour Type Modified Division five race World Series run is not part of the Whelen Modified Tour.
    Justin Bonsignore and the Ken Massa Racing team don’t typically compete in the Tour Type Modified Division events at the New Smyrna World Series. Doug Coby is running a part-time schedule this season.

  3. Did Narducci replace MCJr for tonight’s 100 lap event?

  4. Rafter Fan,
    He’s in Jimmy Blewett’s backup.

  5. Shawn – thanks; why no MCJr in tonight’s race?

  6. Rafter Fan,
    Apparently decided after practice to sit out tonight’s feature.

  7. Spend more time with the family…

  8. Shawn – again, thanks. Was MCJr driving a Baldwin car at NS this week (after the NWMT event)?

  9. Rafter Fan,
    My understanding is that 17 team is not owned by Baldwin.

  10. Near as I can figure the 17 is the PSR Products house car or with a very strong connection to the chassis builder in any event. Driven by Gerstner in 2020 and Tommy Catalano last year.
    There is some connection to TBR it would appear now that TBR is racing PSR chassis and has done so since last August. M&T Transmissions listed as a sponsor of the 17 effort at New Smyrna and Michael scheduled to race the 7ny in the Sizzler with the PSR chassis.
    Meanwhile the 82 SK remains listed as a Troyer it would not be surprising to see that change to a PSR at some point in the future but that is strictly dot connecting.

  11. Doug – thanks for the info. A visit to the PSR Facebook page confirmed that MCJr was indeed driving the PSR “house” car. I guess that means that Ben Dodge would not identify Mike as an “independent runner”.

  12. I’m confused because TFR is congratulating Jimmy Blewitt and TBR for their championship on their facebook page, I would assume he is in a Troyer

  13. It looks like TBR has PSR and Troyer cars in its stable.

    “Tommy Baldwin Racing
    August 21, 2021·
    Well we have been working on this project for a couple months. After multiple tests and lots of data collected we decided to roll out the new PSR pro series ultra wheel 7ny last night for the Stafford open. Fastest in practice and best car in the race hands down. Unfortunately we ended up finishing 2nd after a late race restart when old dazzle dazzle had a wheel ahead of us at the start finish line for one lap. When we cleared him a set sail off turn 2 the caution came out but they go back to the last lap and we had to start 2nd with 3 to go. Great start for the new PSR pro series car. We still have more work to do internally to make this process the best we possibly can for our customers but the goal is to have 20 of these bad boys out on the track. We want to have 20 customers to start so we can all share information the best we can in order to win races. The process has begun and we are excited to get going. Welcome to a whole new level !!! More announcements coming soon.”

    All I know is what I read.
    Obviously TBR has TFR cars as well and perhaps the New Smyrna car was one of them.
    PSR a long time component supplier has been making chassis for a while but this is the first time I’m aware they’ve gotten a major player in the Northeast endorsing their chassis.
    Suffice it to say for those of us that pay attention to chassis wars perhaps we should keep an ear to the ground for the PSR name in the future.
