HOLTSVILLE, N.Y. -- Three-time NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour champion Justin Bonsignore is heading to Nashville, Tennessee this week to collect his hardware as a three-time series champion. Bonsignore has been invited to the NASCAR Awards events that will take place in downtown Nashville -- beginning on Tuesday night, November 30.
Bonsignore will be part of multiple fan events over the course of three days, will receive his championship ring, and will be part of the NASCAR Awards festivities on Thursday.
Bonsignore won two races en route to his 2021 Whelen Modified Tour title -- his third in the last four years driving for Ken Massa Motorsports. It will be the first awards ceremony in Nashville that Bonsignore attends.
“I’m excited to head to Nashville for the first time and celebrate our third NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour title in Music City,” Bonsignore said. “The season we had on the Whelen Modified Tour was one to remember. Winning a third championship is a historic moment for myself and our entire team and I’m excited to officially accept the honors and celebrate with the NASCAR community as part of this special event.”
Fans can stay involved in the Nashville trip by following Bonsignore on social media. Bonsignore’s Athlete Facebook page, @JustinBonsignore51, his Twitter feed @JBonsignore and his Instagram page @JBonsignore will all be showcasing behind the scenes content from Music City.

HOLTSVILLE, N.Y. -- Justin Bonsignore is ready for one more race to wrap the 2021 season.
Bonsignore will drive the No. 51 Kenneth Massa Motorsports Modified, prepared by Ryan Stone, in the prestigious Islip 300 at Riverhead Raceway on Saturday, November 13.
The combination of Bonsignore, Massa, Stone and the entire team is just under two months out from capturing the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour championship on the heels of two wins this season. In three appearances at Riverhead on the tour, Bonsignore finished third, third and second.
He’s hoping to advance on those positions and become the winner of the fifth annual Islip 300. The event honors the legacy of Islip Speedway and the history of Modified racing on Long Island, and Bonsignore would love to add another hometown win to his credit.
“Racing at Riverhead in front of the home track fans is always something we look forward to doing every year,” Bonsignore said. “We weren’t able to win a Whelen Modified Tour race there this year, but adding the prestigious Islip 300 to our list would be special for all of us. It’s a longer race with a lot of strategy involved, so hopefully we will play our cards right.”
Bonsignore and the team will take part in one practice session from 11-12 p.m., with time trials set to begin just after 1 p.m. The green flag for the Islip 300 is set for approximately 3:15 p.m., and will air live on RiverheadRaceway.TV for those who can’t make it to the track.
