A late schedule adjustment for six-time NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour champion Doug Coby will see the veteran compete in the Tommy Baldwin Racing No. 7NY this weekend at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

Mayhew Tools, Coby’s primary sponsor with Doug Coby Racing, will be on the side of the famed Modified for the battle at the Magic Mile. Founded in 1856, Mayhew Tools is the oldest punch and chisel manufacturer in the United States, growing their extensive professional grade, American made product line to include pry bars, pneumatics, cable ties, and more. 

Coby has four starts with Baldwin’s race team so far in 2022 and has finished inside the top-five in all but one of them – winning twice. Baldwin himself, and his team, have been on fire since the start of the season. They are pulling away in the owners championship standings and have four victories with three different drivers – including Coby, Mike Christopher Jr. and the most recent winner at Wall Stadium last weekend, Jimmy Blewett.

Coby knows how to get the job done at the 1.058-mile oval – known for drafting and tight racing –  with lead changes often occurring multiple times per lap in the final stages. Coby has four victories at New Hampshire in 35 starts, and has been top-five over 35 percent of the time.

“You have to be in the right position for a shot at the win inside the last 10 laps,” Coby said. “If you’re not in the top-four cars with 10 laps to go, you’re probably not going to be in position to make it happen. The game we all play for the first 90 laps is seeing where your car is working and how you can get yourself into position. Tommy and the team will have a great car prepared for us. There are a lot of guys that run well at Loudon, but I’m confident we will have a shot. In a sense, Tommy is now feeling what we felt with the No. 2 team and what Justin Bonsignore has felt with the No. 51 lately – having a chance to win every single race. The cars have been great. I can tell Tommy is satisfied with the work he has put in. He’s spent a lot of time chasing cars that won all the time, and now he’s there – seeing how much all of their hard work is paying off. He’s always had great cars – now he’s just winning at a consistent pace.”

New Hampshire’s race day events will take place over two days, beginning on Friday, July 15 with practice from 3:15-4:30 p.m. and Mayhew Tools Qualifying at 6:45 p.m. The green flag for the Whelen Manufactured in America 100 is scheduled for 6 p.m., live on FloRacing.TV. The event will take place just after the NASCAR Xfinity Series Crayon 200.

    Truth is STRANGER than FICTION…… Goodfella called out the 7NY for lack of speed and so so RESULTS on the TOUR….So Tom Baldwin II put together a MONSTER car for 2022 and NOW Doug Coby is WINNING in the 7NY ….Who would have believed it.????? Coby leaves HIS # 10 on jack STANDS to Jump into the MONSTER 7NY Wins TWO RACES and good finishes with TBR….Blewett WINS…. Christopher gets the ALL IMPORTANT FIRST TOUR WIN in the 7NY…..Thank you Goodfella for putting the 7NY on NOTICE….

  2. Suitcase Jake, you have always been one of the very few that gets it, and tries to enlighten the masses. I enjoy reading your contributions.

    TBR has definitely hit upon something, or found the right people to get it done. But the big improvement has been the cars are finishing races. Sure wish McKennedy was in the car after all he went through while TBR was in development with failing cars.

    I haven’t bothered to investigate, but is Baldwin picking his drivers on their records at certain tracks, or types of tracks? Not that it really matters much this year with mostly smaller, bullrings on schedule.

    Thanks Goodfella . You’ve been around the exhaust Circuit many moons … Tommy sure did pick Quite the Driving Team. Each highly motivated to Win to keep pace with the other Shoes that are Winners also … Are we seeing a New Method?? Like in Baseball the Starting Pitcher has lost its Importance they change pitchers like a revolving door .. Tommy has a Bullpen Full of Winners so He put Doug in at NHIS where he has had great success!! Genius!!!

  5. Let’s see, Mike Christopher who has done well for Baldwin in Stafford and Thompson Opens in the 7ny for the longer tracks New Smyrna and Jennerstown and great results. Subs for Blewett at Monadnock a shorty, not so good. The winningest driver at Wall driving the 7ny at Wall. Coby with resent victories at Riverhead in his 10 winning a couple more races at Riverhead in the 7ny. And lets not forget Heady’s win early in a SMART race. I suppose it could be a coincidence but it sure looks like Baldwin is doing everything he can to make sure the driver won’t be hurting his chances at the varied tracks the 7ny competes.
    In the latest episode of where Jon McKennedy falls in the pecking order of drivers with regard to skill level in tour modifieds an interesting stat just came to light. In the NHMS Pick 6 going off tonight, McKennedy comes in as the fifth most popular driver selected behind Bonsignor, Coby, Silk, Santos and Preece. I’m not going to pretend selections for one specific race by a total of 15 different race fans is a representative sampling but it is interesting. Add Hirschman and it would match my top tier of elite drivers to a tee. McKennedy in the company of Emerling and Goodale for purposes of Pick 6 selection members of my second tier you may recall.
    Reason for a victory dance, certainly not. But if we’re being objective it sure doesn’t contradict the observations I’ve made on McKennedy at least to this point by gum.
    Zoom, zoom!
