The Doug Coby and Tommy Baldwin Racing pairing will be back together again this weekend. The Mayhew Tools No. 7NY will be on track on Saturday, September 30 at North Wilkesboro Speedway for the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour Brushy Mountain Powersports 150.

The Whelen Modified Tour visit to the North Carolina oval will be the first in series history. The track was revived recently after many years of being closed. The NASCAR Cup Series All-Star event took place there in May and the Cup Series will be back in 2024 for another All-Star race.

Coby is excited to get behind the wheel of a Modified at the track. The last time Coby and Baldwin raced together they sealed the Whelen Granite State Short Track Cup crown at Monadnock Speedway on September 9, with a top-five finish. The group has been part-time for the second half of the season since team owner Tommy Baldwin Jr. announced a cancer diagnosis.

The part-time schedule allows Coby and Baldwin to have only one goal: winning the race.

“I don’t think any of us truly know how long the cars might last or how hard we might have to go,” Coby said. “I think it will be a track position race. You pay attention to how races at places like Myrtle Beach and Lee USA played out… it’s going to be a chess-match to make sure you’re in position to have a chance to win.”

“With Tommy going through his treatments, it’s definitely difficult for him to do some of the things he would have normally done before, but having a chance to bring the 7NY to North Wilkesboro with a chance to win there, especially with what this race signifies, it’s important,” Coby said. “The team is all looking forward to going there and racing.”

NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour teams will have two practice sessions on Saturday, followed by Mayhew Tools qualifying at 5:15 p.m., and the green flag for 150 laps at 8 p.m. For those who will not be able to catch the action live, fans can watch on FloRacing.TV.
