NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour WInchester 150 Set For Saturday Night
Race Preview by Souza Media
HOLTSVILLE, N.Y. – Justin Bonsignore is heading back to a track where he’s had plenty of winning success this weekend. The three-time NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour champion will be returning to Monadnock Speedway to compete in the Winchester Fair 150 on Saturday night, the final race in the Whelen Granite State Short Track Cup for 2023.
In 10 career Monadnock starts, Bonsignore has four wins. He’s also finished inside the top-five in nine of his starts - including a fifth-place effort there in May of this year. Bonsignore will enter the race second in the championship standings with five races remaining in the Whelen Modified Tour season, coming off a wreck at Oswego last time out.
The Kenneth Massa Motorsports No. 51 team also enters the race aiming to win the Whelen Cup. Although Bonsignore is outside the top-five in the point standings for the three-race series, anything can happen over 150 laps on the high-banks in New Hampshire.
“We are looking forward to Monadnock,” Bonsignore said. “Turning our attention towards a track we have been successful at over the years is always easier. We’re looking to gain a little bit more since we were there in May and be a contender right from the start of the race – especially with the shorter amount of laps. Track position will be important. There is still plenty of time left in the season and we just have to keep running consistently up front and win races.”
Fans looking to follow Justin and the Phoenix Communications team at Monadnock can join them at the track on Saturday, or watch live on FloRacing.TV. Practice will roll from 2:55-3:55 p.m., followed by qualifying at 5:30 p.m. and the green flag at 8 p.m.
