For the first time in over one month, Doug Coby will strap in behind the wheel of the Mayhew Tools No. 10 Modified this Wednesday night. Coby will be competing in the Phoenix Communications 150 at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park, as the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour returns to the high-banks for the first time in just under two years on August 17. 

Coby’s Thompson record speaks for itself – as the six-time Whelen Modified Tour champion has sealed all six of his championships at the Connecticut oval. Overall, in 64 starts at Thompson, Coby has six victories and 25 top-five finishes, leading over 1,300 laps. He’s familiar with the track, has confidence in the car, and is looking to rocket to Victory Lane as a part-time contender on the Tour once again.

Coby has six Whelen Modified Tour starts this season, all for Tommy Baldwin Racing, with two wins to his credit.

“It’s our first NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour race of the season with my own 10 team and we have a brand new car coming out with a fresh motor,” Coby said. “The guys have done a great job getting everything together. We’re excited to be back together on the 10 team and give it a run. The Whelen Modified Tour and Thompson Speedway are synonymous with each other – without a doubt, the Tour should be at Thompson multiple times during the year. The facility is like the home base for the Whelen Modified Tour.”

The race day schedule for the Phoenix Communications 150 includes one practice session from 4-5 p.m., followed by Mayhew Tools qualifying at 6:20 p.m. The green flag for the 150-lap event will drop at 8 p.m., live on FloRacing.TV. Tickets will be available at the track for those in the area.
