After three championships and over 40 wins on the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour, Justin Bonsignore will get his opportunity in the NASCAR National Series this weekend at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Bonsignore will compete in the M3 Technology, USNE No. 19 Toyota GR Supra for Joe Gibbs Racing in the SciAps 200 for the NASCAR Xfinity Series.

After taking the checkered flag in the Xfinity event, Bonsignore will jump in his No. 51 Phoenix Communications Inc. Modified for Ken Massa Motorsports to compete in the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour Mohegan Sun 100. 

The Xfinity Series event will go green at 3:30 p.m., live on USA. The NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour event is slated for 6:30 p.m., live on FloRacing.TV.

The opportunity for Bonsignore to run double duty at the ‘Magic Mile’ will bring his racing aspirations together for a day in New Hampshire. Racing competitively and winning on the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour means a lot to Bonsignore, who grew up watching names like Mike Stefanik, Ted Christopher and more dominate NASCAR’s Modified ranks. 

While Bonsignore continues to thrive racing Modifieds, already winning a Tour event this year at Richmond Raceway, the chance to strap in the NASCAR Xfinity Series is a dream becoming reality.

“We would have never done this if it wasn’t going to be with a team that I thought I could go out there and win with,” Bonsignore said. “Joe Gibbs Racing is one of the top teams in NASCAR and the Xfinity Series. Working with them was a no-brainer for us and their entire group has been so helpful to get me up to speed and ready to go.”

Bonsignore will have M3 Technology, owned by Modified car owner Ken Massa, on the side of the No. 19, along with USNE, another partner that saw the opportunity to work with him.

“Ken, his wife Janine, and their entire family – they have done so much for me personally and with my racing career,” Bonsignore said. “I’m forever thankful for them and also have to thank USNE for believing in me and helping make this race a reality.”

“This is huge for my career. I’ve always had goals to make it to the NASCAR National Series, but we never had the sponsorship and it was never the right time to chase it. I’ve learned since racing with the ARCA Menards Series at Daytona in February that the business side of the sport is just as important as driving the car to get your opportunities. To do this with JGR, with everyone we will have there supporting me from family, to sponsors, to our Modified crew and fans in general… it’s going to be a special day.”

Bonsignore’s busy weekend begins on Friday, June 21, with NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour and NASCAR Xfinity Series practice and qualifying. On Saturday, Bonsignore will visit multiple areas in the FanZone at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, where fans can come out and meet and greet with the three-time Whelen Modified Tour champion. The Xfinity Series race will be up first on Saturday at 3:30 p.m., followed by a quick turnaround into the Modified for 6:30 p.m. The Whelen Modified Tour event is the seventh of the season for Bonsignore, who currently sits second in the championship standings approaching the halfway point of the year.

Fans can purchase tickets for the weekend and see a full schedule of events and appearances online at NHMS.com.
