Pit Box: Wall Stadium Welcomes Whelen Modified Tour Back To New Jersey

For the first time since 2019, the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour returns to the state of New Jersey and Wall Stadium Speedway for the Jersey Shore 150 this Saturday night.

Saturday’s race marks the fifth time the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour will visit the third-mile high-banked oval, and the event serves as the eighth race on the 2022 schedule.

In four previous visits to Wall Stadium Speedway, the Tour has seen four different winners. Woody Pitkat was triumphant in the most recent Tour event at the facility, picking up a victory during the 2019 season.

Other winners at Wall include Reggie Ruggiero and brothers John Blewett III and Jimmy Blewett. The only previous NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour winner at Wall Stadium Speedway scheduled to be in action Saturday is Jimmy Blewett.

Below is everything you need to know about Saturday’s Jersey Shore 150 at Wall Stadium Speedway.

Jersey Shore 150 at Wall Stadium Speedway

What to watch for:

If you’re looking for a favorite to win the Jersey Shore 150 this Saturday night at Wall Stadium Speedway, you need not look any further than New Jersey’s own Jimmy Blewett.

The 41-year-old Modified veteran, who will drive for Tommy Baldwin Racing Saturday night, is a four-time Wall Stadium Speedway Modified track champion with countless victories in a variety of divisions at the legendary high-banked oval. In his two previous Tour starts at his home track, he has one victory, two top-five and two top-two finishes.

He’ll do battle with a number of the Tour’s top stars, all of whom hope to deny the local boy a visit to Victory Lane.

Among those with whom Blewett will have to contend is Matt Hirschman, a multi-time winner of Wall Stadium Speedway’s annual Turkey Derby event. Hirschman already has a Tour win this year in the opener at Florida’s New Smyrna Speedway.

Ron Silk enters the Jersey Shore 150 as the Tour championship leader and is one of only six drivers with two top-10 finishes in Tour events at Wall Stadium Speedway. His best finish of seventh came during the 2007 season.

Andrew Krause, whose family took over as promoters at Wall Stadium Speedway a few years ago, is the most recent Modified track champion at Wall Stadium Speedway. He’ll look to keep the Jersey Shore 150 in the family Saturday evening.

Justin Bonsignore, who started from the pole the last time the Tour visited Wall Stadium Speedway, will look to improve upon his finish of 13th in 2019. He has scored two victories this season, but mechanical problems in other races have kept him out of the championship hunt so far.

New Jersey native Danny Bohn returns to Tour competition during the Jersey Shore 150. The driver from Freehold, New Jersey, was a winner earlier this year in the season-opener at Bowman Gray Stadium in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, and will be making his first Tour start since 2019.

Dave Sapienza scored one of his nine Tour top-five finishes at Wall Stadium Speedway in 2019 and is the only driver who finished in the top five that day who is scheduled to compete Saturday night.

Other competitors expected to compete include Patrick Emerling, Kyle Bonsignore, Eric Goodale, Tommy Catalano, Jake Johnson and Timmy Solomito.

  2. I’ll confess a genuine amount of anxiety for what could happen this Saturday at Wall Stadium. How can I put it tactfully. The NWMT race on May 18, 2019 had to be one of the most disgraceful exhibitions of mass driver ineptitude in the history of the Tour. You could have put 28 enduro drivers in the cars, told them it was one million dollars to win and probably gotten similar or even better racing.
    10 cautions doesn’t come close to capsulizing the bumping and banging that was going on all through the event. If you have a strong stomach watch the entire race on Youtube. At the least consider reviewing this highlight video to get an idea of how bad it was.


    Pitkat, Barney, Summers, Catalano and Sapienza were the top 5 survivors. You could say good for them because none at the time were remotely in the top tier of the Tour. Unfortunately the 5th place cost Sapienza a back injury that would keep him out for an extended period and happened as the race ended. In the same fracas Summers car was wrecked as well crossing the line.
    If there was a winner maybe Fifield could qualify. She turned in a 15th place finish completing 153 laps including overtime and actually beat two cars or more accurately two wounded cars.
    When was the last time Hirschman had his car destroyed in a race. Tell you what, if there’s a repeat performance of the 2019 debacle he may very well get caught up in something he never experienced before in racing the Turkey Derby events.

  3. let’s hope for a clean race…

    *That now makes 10 different winners in the 12 Pick 6’s to date.
    *4 new additions to the list of podium finishers expanding that list to 17 different Pick 6 participants.
