Double duty has become a doubly regular occurrence for Andrew Molleur in 2022. 

The Shelton teenager runs in both the SK Modified and Late Model divisions weekly at Stafford Speedway and the New London-Waterford Speedbowl. 

But on August 6 the racer dubbed the “High Roller” will be shooting for a triple-win night at the Speedbowl. 

Molleur will compete in the Boehler Racing Enterprise Ole Blue No. 3 ride in the Monaco Modified Tri-Track Series event on Aug. 6 at the Speedbowl. 

“It’s pretty awesome to me to get the chance to do it,” Molleur said. “It’s such a famous car, such a recognizable car. Every Modified fan knows the No. 3 car. It’s such a famous race car with so much history behind it. So many past champions and really great race car drivers have been behind the wheel of that car. To be able to say that I drove the No. 3 Modified is definitely a really cool honor for me.” 

The Aug. 6 event will mark the first Monaco Modified Tri-Track Series at the Speedbowl since 2016. 

On June 4 Molleur scored his first career Late Model win at Waterford to become just the fifth driver in track history with victories in five different divisions at the track. He also has wins in the SK Modified, SK Light Modified, Legends and Bandolero divisions.

“Waterford is a track that I’ve had a lot of success at,” Molleur said. “To be able to do a [Tour Type Modified] show there again is cool. It’s been a while. My last Open show was a while ago there and I’ve gained a lot more experience there in open wheel Modifieds. I’m pretty confident that we’re going to have a really good shot at winning. That car is a really fast car and that just a really good track for me. I think both of those things together are going to be good for us.” 

Molleur isn’t much worried about the grind of triple duty running the SK Modified and Late Model features along with the Monaco Modified Tri-Track Series event. 

“It’s going to be a long night for sure,” Molleur said. “Hopefully it’s a little cooler than it’s been lately. Hopefully we’ll have some spaces in between the races. But we’ve done it before so I think we’ll be OK.” 


  1. looks like the trend is to bring in a driver that has experience on the track.. interesting since also appears that tour\series drivers will not challenge people not involved in point championship (this since championship points not that meaningful with independents).. are we watching an new philosophy taking over the modifieds???? that being the rise of ownership????

  2. Very similar to horse racing and jockeys going to different horses. Horse jockey’s have agents who try to get them on fast horses. Perhaps we need the drivers to start hiring agents to get them into fast cars.

  3. Has the 3 taken down a victory yet this year? How many drivers have piloted Ole Blue this year. Preece Lia Moeller was Swanson? love to see them back in victory lane. Love that car.

  4. csg,, not swanson,, but jake johnson..
