Doug Coby and Tommy Baldwin Racing (TBR) will continue their partnership this weekend at Monadnock Speedway, when Coby wheels the No. 7NY in the Duel at the Dog 200. Coby was tabbed to drive the car at Riverhead Raceway and Lee USA Speedway last month, and in the first two starts together as a combination, the team went to Victory Lane. Since then, Mike Christopher Jr. has also driven the car to the victory at Jennerstown Speedway, meaning Tommy Baldwin Racing has won the last three Whelen Modified Tour events.

On top of winning, TBR also leads the championship owner point standings after five events. Coby, a six-time Whelen Modified Tour champion, was only planning on running select events with his personal race team this year, but is excited to return to the seat for Baldwin this weekend. The 200-lap event at Monadnock will come with no pit stops, meaning tire conservation and patience will be crucial to success. At Riverhead, Coby was the dominant force in that 200-lap event. At Lee, he rocketed to the lead in dominating fashion again to take a second straight win. 

In his career at Monadnock, the Milford, Connecticut, native has one victory in seven previous starts and has been top-five in all but two efforts at the Winchester, New Hampshire oval. 

“I’m certainly happy to be back in the car,” Coby said. “Tommy Baldwin has two opportunities to win Saturday, with my car and Jimmy Blewett driving the No. 1 for him. It’s a chance to extend the streak. Monadnock is an awesome little technical track, where you have to be smart, smooth and consistent and repeat that and do it over and over again for the whole race. It seems like as the race goes on, you can move around and use different parts of the track to get the car to turn. It’s a fun place.”

Saturday’s race day schedule at Monadnock includes one practice session from 2-3 p.m., followed by Mayhew Tools Dominator pole qualifying at 5 p.m. The estimated drop of the green flag for the Duel at the Dog 200 is scheduled for 8:30 p.m., live on FloRacing.TV.

  1. It’s a thing now I suppose with guys like Coby, Rameau and Bonsignor having press releases highlighting themselves. In this case the star is not the great Doug Coby it’s the 7ny and he’s fortunate to be sitting in it.
    Oh we’re all so smart aren’t we. Saying before the season things like it was the 51’s championship to lose and all the travel was going to lead to low car counts and another rung down in the tours inevitable demise. Oops, that didn’t happen.
    With three races out in left field for the NWMT they still beat the MMTTS in average car count 26 to 24.5. All with more competitive fields.
    Meanwhile the new other Bonsignor, with an average finish of 15th, is now Justin as he is looking up at his cousin Kyle in the standings. Beating only 5 cars racing all 5 events and of that 5 Fifield and McDonald account for two of the spots. The flawless 51 not that any more with a couple breakdowns. When they’re not breaking down they’re turning in mediocre finishes with the one win exception.
    We knew the 16 and 79 teams were going to be competing hard for the 2022 Tour championship. We knew they had everything it took to win but we still didn’t quite embrace them as legitimate favorites to actually compete with the 51 yet there they are at the top of the standings. Oh wait that’s not correct. The Catalano 54 in second how’d they get there?
    Then there’s the owner’s point leader the 7ny and absolutely no one even hinted at what TBR would be capable of this season.
    So what’s it all mean race fans? Draw your own conclusion but for me it means we can’t predict jack squat from season to season yet we’re the winners. Winners because so far the NWMT has far exceeding all expectations near as I can figure.
