    The T.S. Haulers / United Crane Rentals racing team rebounded from recent adversity as Jimmy Blewett scored his first top-five Whelen Modified Tour finish since his win at Wall Township Speedway in May. The fifth place score was Jimmy’s seventh top-ten finish of the season. This effort vaults the T.S. Haulers team back into the top-ten in both the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour drivers and owners point standings.
    “We did the best with what we had,” said Jimmy, “the car handled great all day. If we had the kind of power we had here in July, we’d have had something for them in the end.” Blewett blasted from his seventeenth place starting position to battle with the leaders for much of the second half of the race.
    “We have to thank our sponsors for making this possible. We have United Crane Rentals and Archer Steel from New Jersey they help us out a lot. And of course Eddie Partridge with T.S. Haulers from out on Long Island , he puts this all together.”
    “I’d also like to personally thank the Bahres for their support of the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour here at New Hampshire International Speedway. My brother, John, had so much success here and I can’t wait to come back to Loudon to try to win next year.” Jimmy’s next Whelen Modified Tour race will be at the Thompson Int’l Speedway, in Connecticut on September 23rd.
    Ed Partridge, owner of the T.S. Haulers team, would like to thank Joe Caraccia, Billy Mathes from Performance Engines by “Billy the Kid”, Ron Hutter of Hutter Racing Engines, Nick Hamp from Peterbilt of Maine and John Mazza Autographics for their support.
