   NASCAR WHELEN MODIFIED TOUR NEWS & NOTES: SEEKONK
As the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour enters the final six races of the 2017 season, four-time champion Doug Coby has yet to visit Victory Lane. And that would come as a surprise to most. The Milford, Connecticut, driver had three finishes outside the top 10 in the first four races and dug himself a deep hole in the championship standings in his search for a fourth consecutive championship. However, as the tour rolls into Massachusetts' only oval, Seekonk Speedway, Coby could be hitting his stride at exactly the right time. The 38-year-old has finished second in the last three races and has been inside the top five in five of the last six. The runs inside the podium have allowed Coby to crawl his way back to just 19 points from the....Full Story    Entry List
   CHAMP TRAIL: 08/22/17 by Phil Smith
In NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour Series racing last Wednesday the competition didn’t know that Patrick Emerling was a dancer as he did the “Bristol Stomp” with a near perfect performance, capping it off with a win. The Orchard Park, New York, driver was fastest in practice, won the Coors Light Pole Award and proceeded to lead 148 of the 150 laps en route to his first career NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour victory.
"It's just a dream come true," said Emerling following the win at the historic track dubbed 'Thunder Valley.' "It's incredible. We only run a handful of the Whelen Tour races and to come down here and win practice, catch the pole and lead every single lap, it's an incredible feeling for us as a team."
The win for the 24-year-old came in his 78th career start....Full Story
   WHICH GATE? by Rev. Don Rivers
Have you ever noticed that when we are hanging out with our friends we are more inclined to get involved with something crazy? Whether it is peer pressure or the desire not to be singled out or for the sake of saving face, we agree to do things that are questionable. Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I was thinking the other day about some of the stupid things we did as kids. The bunch of us would get together and who knows what we would come up with. You can be sure it was something that would only make sense to a bunch of teenage boys. I can hear my mother now, “What in the world were you thinking? If all your friends jumped off a bridge would you?” I was smart enough to keep quiet but the truth be told....Full Story
   MID-WEEK FLAMINGO MOTORSPORTS 100 ON TAP FOR TTOMS AT STAR SPEEDWAY
There has always been something special about the NorthEast Racecars Tri-Track Open Modified Series (TTOMS). Maybe it is the Series origin - with a couple of devoted ‘fans’ who put the proverbial blood, sweat and tears into creating a platform for the racers. Or, maybe it is the ‘old school’ mentality of the Series - hosting events with a flair for the ‘golden age of racing’ at historic speedways. Whatever it is, teams and fans alike come out to support the Series. This Wednesday night at Star Speedway, the drivers and fans that support the Tri-Track Open Modified Series will be treated to much of the same with the running of the Flamingo Motorsports 100 at the historic bullring in Epping, NH. The mid-week event is reminiscent of the former....Full Story

   ROWAN PENNINK WINS EXIT REALTY 125 AT MONADNOCK SPEEDWAY by Denise DuPont
The Modified Touring Series (MTS) made their second stop at Monadnock Speedway for 125 green laps of racing Saturday, August 19th. There were fifteen modified in the pits.

   PATRICK EMERLING CAPTURES HIS FIRST NWMT WIN AT 'THE LAST GREAT COLOSSEUM' by Denise DuPont
The NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour (NWMT) headed to the mountains and southern heat for their yearly visit to Bristol Motor Speedway (BMS).There were twenty-seven teams that made the trip to the half-mile high banked track. Again this year the bottom groove on the turns was treated with sticky adhesive (PJ1). During practice drivers learned that if you straddled the sticky surface then you quickly spun. There was no exception for those that scored fast circuits. Burt Myers of Cove, NC and Patrick Emerling from Orchard Park, NY both had their turn at being fastest on the track and soon after spinning with the aid of the PJ1. Emerling was able to pull away while Myers was not as lucky. Myers clipped the outside....Full Story    LIVE Replay with Denise DuPont    Photo Gallery by Jim DuPont

In Loving Memory Of Howie

   HOWARD "HOWIE" ARTHUR HODGE prepared by Polly Reid
Saturday afternoon on January 28, 2017, Howard ‘Howie’ Arthur Hodge passed away at the St. Francis Hospital in Hartford, CT. Surrounded by family at the time of his passing, Howard was 77 years old.
Born on August 31, 1939 at the Hartford Hospital, Howard was the second of three children to Dorothy (Hoadley) and Leon Hodge.
His first few years were spent in Glastonbury, CT before the Hodge family moved to East Hartford where Howard went to school graduating from the East Hartford High School in 1957.
Growing up, Howard had a paper route for ‘quite a few years’. The pile of papers would be left on the front lawn and Howard would be responsible for folding them, putting them in the big cloth bag then ride around the neighborhood delivering the Hartford Times. His sister Lois fondly remembers his bicycle that ‘he fixed up until it was like a motorcycle’ complete with a windshield, skirts....Full Story
