HOLTSVILLE, N.Y. – Justin Bonsignore and the Ken Massa Motorsports team are heading to Lee USA Speedway this Saturday, May 21, for round four of the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour season.
The Granite State Derby 175 presented by USA Insulation will mark the first time the Whelen Modified Tour has been to the New Hampshire track in over two decades, and Bonsignore is heading there looking for redemption and to get back on track. Even though the Holtsville, New York, driver won the Richmond Raceway race on April 1, in the other two events during the 2022 season, Bonsignore failed to finish – both with mechanical failures.
However – with plenty of races left to go on the 16-race schedule, all eyes are on Lee, where Bonsignore does have some previous laps in a Modified. Saturday’s race will include tire conservation at one of the most abrasive tracks the Northeast offers, and pit strategy will matter in determining who ends up in Victory Lane.
Bonsignore is excited to get back to Lee and see how it all shakes out.
“We’re looking forward to getting to Lee USA Speedway and coming out of there with a strong run,” Bonsignore said. “All we can do is keep our heads down and do what we know we can do, and let the rest play out. Lee is a difficult track with tire conservation and it should be interesting to see how all of the strategy plays out at the end of the race.”
Saturday’s race day schedule at Lee USA Speedway will include one Whelen Modified Tour practice from 1:40-2:40 p.m., followed by Mayhew Tools qualifying at 5:30 p.m. The green flag for the Granite State Derby presented by USA Insulation is set for 7 p.m., live on FloRacing.TV. Fans can purchase tickets in advance at JDVProductions.com and also at the track on race day. The event includes the Granite State Pro Stock Series, NHSTRA Mini Stocks, Pro 4 Modifieds, NEMA Lites and the Whelen Modified Tour.
