Claremont Clash 150 Set For Saturday Night
Race Advance by Souza Media
HOLTSVILLE, N.Y. – As the second half of the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour season draws near, Justin Bonsignore is looking to carry some momentum to another New Hampshire track this weekend. Less than two weeks ago, Bonsignore topped Doug Coby in a photo finish at New Hampshire Motor Speedway to win his second Whelen Modified Tour race of the season.
Now, after a week off, the three-time series champion is moving across the state of New Hampshire to Claremont Motorsports Park for Saturday’s 150-lap Tour race. The 10th race of the season, Bonsignore will be looking to continue a hot streak of top-five finishes. The Holtsville, New York, native has been inside the top-five in eight of nine Tour races this year, including three straight races of either winning or finishing second.
He enters the race second in the series championship standings as well - as he trails Ron Silk by only eight points. Last year, Bonsignore qualified second and finished sixth at Claremont. The Kenneth Massa Motorsports team also enters the race seventh in the Whelen Granite State Short Track Cup standings. This three-race series will conclude at Claremont and Bonsignore is looking to at least knock into the top-three to earn the team some bonus cash. He’s currently 12 points off the lead and just eight off third.
“Having momentum on your side off a big win at New Hampshire Motor Speedway is always a positive for the entire team,” Bonsignore said. “Last year we went to Claremont for the first time. Now that we know a bit more about the track and how it races, we will make some adjustments and go back there this weekend ready to go. The summer stretch is going to be busy for the Whelen Modified Tour and it’s important we come away with a strong finish on Saturday.”
Tickets for Saturday’s race at Claremont are available online at JDVProductions.com. Fans can watch the race live on FloRacing.TV at 8:30 p.m. on Saturday night if they can’t make it to the track.
