Fresh off a win at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park, and victories in the last two NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour races in general, Justin Bonsignore and the Kenneth Massa Motorsports team will return to work this weekend. The Whelen Modified Tour is heading south to Langley Speedway in Virginia on Saturday, August 26, for the CheckeredFlag.com 150.

The 12th race of the Whelen Modified Tour season will begin a busy stretch for Bonsignore. After Langley, events at Oswego (September 2), Monadnock (September 9), Riverhead (September 16) and North Wilkesboro (September 30) will make up a busy stretch of five races in six weeks. It will be followed by two in October to crown the 2023 champion.

Bonsignore is second in the series championship standings, just two points behind leader Ron Silk. Both drivers have three wins during the 2023 season. In three previous Langley starts, Bonsignore has been inside the top-five at the finish of all of them. He’s also been top-five in all but one race this season on the Whelen Modified Tour.

“Langley is a tough track,” Bonsignore said. “Having great turn through the center of the corner and good drive off are equally important to having success there. We’ve had some solid runs over the years at Langley, but certainly we are excited to get back there and try to improve on our package to be there at the end of the race with a shot to win.”

Langley’s race day schedule includes NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour practice from 3:15-4 p.m., followed by qualifying at 5:30 p.m. The green flag for the CheckeredFlag.com 150 is set for 8 p.m. and will air live on FloRacing.TV.

  1. Virginia Is For Luggers says

    Word at Thompson last week was 17 cars on the entry list for Langley. And now 2 of them are gone. Never thought I’d see a day with 15 cars for a whelen tour race.

  2. SMART tour modifieds running at ace speedway Friday in NC will have Burt Meyers, Ryan Newman and Bobby Labonte. Not good when names like that chose a SMART race over the nascar tour.

  3. Hmmm, let me get the challenge flag out for Chris G’s comment. I know it’s here somewhere……..ahh there it is.
    I don’t see SMART at Ace on Friday their next event is at Carteret on September 2 according to their schedule. Were there a conflict, since Myers and Labonte are in the SMART points hunts they would always choose SMART.
    ACE is the place for MODS on Friday……all 6. And I don’t see Myers, Labonte or Newman in their points so why would they be there now?
    We’ll see how many teams drive alllllllllllllllll the way to Langley. As long as Beers, Bonsignor and Silk are there think cup half full.
    T. Baldwin obviously has issues that eclipse any consideration of racing. Hirschman on the bench for a while so no Oswego or Monadnock in the immediate future for the 60. Tough year but we have to roll with the punches. Have a kind thought for the boys on the disabled list and appreciate the race we have.
    On the schedule coming up pretty soon will be the schedule rolling out. Will the ghost of scheduling past haunt the deciders at NASCAR. Stafford with only 6 events to go and the NWMT with seven all over the place how crazy is that? Will they come up with another 19 race hope and a prayer or finally get real and make some changes that reflect the times? Get you bets down now race fans. My money is on Head and Shoulders because there will likely be some head scratching going on when they uncork the new beauty you betcha.

  4. Why would any of those guys come race the tour when there is an easier race to run? Everyone knows theyve never been able to compete on the tour.

  5. Loud and clear, like Modified open headers:

    15 cars on the entry list = nobody wants to travel!!!!!


    It’s only gonna get worse as we head into the big travel part of the schedule.

    Thank goodness the 01 shows up for her participation points. She’s loving the low car counts so she can move up in the points.

  6. Doug,
    According to the SMART website that series is running at Ace Speedway on Friday Aug. 25. It is a makeup event that was originally scheduled for June 23.

  7. Oops! Challenge fail so I guess I lose a time out.
    It’s 16 cars so ha, shows all you naysayers! Plus the SMART race is on FloRacing on Friday at 7. How is another modified race to watch a bad thing?
    So this thing about the car count. I guess that implies what, it will be a boring race? If the results are so obvious try playing The Naysayers Challenge @ Langley Pick 6.

  8. Ya I know. It’s 15.
