NASCAR WHELEN MODIFIED TOUR CHAMPIONSHIP
TO BE DECIDED AT THOMPSON

The championship crown for the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour will be determined at Thompsonís World Series on Sunday, October 20th. After a season-long battle, the coveted championship has boiled down to a contest between defending champion Doug Coby and current point leader Ryan Preece. Preece has a 26 point advantage going into the Sunoco World Series of Speedway Racing presented by Xtra Mart.

Preece has seen his point advantage dwindle in the last two outings of the WMT. His efforts at Staffordís Fall Final produced a 17th place finish and a 12th place finish at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Prior to those two races, Preece seemed destined for the title with four wins in the first 11 races.

Coby, who clinched the 2012 title at Thompsonís World Series, has not been far behind Preece all year long and the last two outings have proven to be a real boost to his efforts to repeat his championship status. In New Hampshire, Coby finished one spot behind Preece and secured a 2nd place finish at Staffordís final.

Preece still has the upper hand, but a 26-point margin is not an insurmountable obstacle for Coby. The 150-lap race on World Series weekend will be the most important race of the season for both of these outstanding competitors.

The Sunoco World Series of Speedway Racing presented by Xtra Mart is the grand finale of racing in New England. Championships will be finalized in several of the 15 different divisions that will be in competition over the three-day race fest. Traditionally, championships are determined in the International Super Modified Association, North East Midget Association, Pro 4 Modifieds, and more.

Thompsonís World Series is a race fanís dream weekend. It is three days (Friday, October 18, Saturday, October 19 and Sunday, October 20th) of non-stop, on-track racing with practice and qualifying on Friday and Saturday afternoons. The Saturday night portion of the World Series is a full card of feature event racing with a total of 10 main events scheduled. Topping the Saturday night lineup will be a 75-lap main event for the Valenti Modified Racing Series.

Sundayís feature races will put the spotlight on Thompsonís Sunoco Modifieds, NEMA Midgets, ISMAís Super Modifieds, Granite State Pro Stocks and will wrap up with the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour. The entire weekendís schedule is available at www.thompsonspeedwayoval.com.
