HOLTSVILLE, N.Y. -- A busy 2021 summer slate for Justin Bonsginore rolls on this Saturday, August 14, with another round of Tri Track Open Modified Series racing at Monadnock Speedway. Set to compete for Jimmy Paige in the familiar No. 00, Bonsignore will look to improve on his fourth-place finish at Monadnock in May.
During the first stop at the New Hampshire bullring, Bonsignore started at the front, but backed up through the field to save his equipment, and charged back to the front after a pit stop late to score a top-five run. Since then, the car overheated at Star Speedway in May, and Bonsignore finished seventh in the last Tri Track event at Star on July 24.
He’s hoping to get to Victory Lane this weekend at Monadnock -- a place where Bonsignore does have victories in Whelen Modified Tour action -- including in 2020.
“We struggled a little bit there in May and hopefully we know where we need to start the race this time and we make the right adjustment on the pit stop,” Bonsignore said. “I’ve only worked with Jimmy, crew chief Steve Lemay and the team five or six times total. The car has been fast the whole season, and we have come a long way as a group together. Only racing six times each year, for us to get on the same page, it’s tough. But we are making better adjustments every single race and we continue to grow.”
Saturday’s Monadnock 100 begins with one practice session from 2:30-3:30 p.m., followed by the start of qualifying heat races at 5:30 p.m. The 100-lap feature is estimated to take the green flag at 8:45 p.m., and will air to a live audience on Speed51.TV. Tickets will be available at the track for those who are interested in seeing the race in person.
