   The Chrome Horn - NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour



When the green flag comes out for the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour Call Before You Dig 811 150 this Friday at Stafford Motor Speedway, there will be a driver/team reunion taking place as Berlin native Keith Rocco will be behind the wheel of the Boehler Family owned #3 “Ole Blue” machine.

Rocco previously drove 7 races during the 2012 NWMT season for the #3 team. Although an injury caused him to miss 6 NWMT races that season, his performance was good enough to earn him Sunoco Rookie of the Year honors. During his 7-race stretch behind the wheel of the #3 car, Rocco accumulated 5 top-10 finishes, including a career best finish of third in the 200-lap NAPA Spring Sizzler at Stafford as well as a second top-10 effort in the May TSI Harley-Davidson 125. Rocco is returning to the #3 car for a one-off opportunity and he is looking to rekindle his Stafford success in the Call Before You Dig 811 150.

“This is a one-off race and I enjoy working with the Boehler team,” said Rocco. “I get along great with Greg [Fournier], who works on the Boehler team and has taken on crew chief duties. He also helps me out when the 3 team is not racing. We work together all the time so this Friday should be pretty smooth. I think we can be right up front with the 3 car.”

Just as Rocco will be looking to put the 3 car up front in the Call Before You Dig 811 150, he will also be looking to get back up front behind the wheel of the #88 Wheeler’s Auto SK Modified® car. Since making his SK Modified® debut at Stafford in 2005, Rocco has accumulated 37 feature wins, which places him in third place on the All-Time SK Modified® Feature Winners List. Rocco trails only Ted Christopher and Bo Gunning in career SK Modified® victories, but the 2014 season has seen Rocco go winless thus far. Rocco’s last SK Modified® win was in the 2013 Fall Final and he hopes to end that winless streak as he and the #88 team have come very close to NAPA Victory Lane this season.

“Every week we’re getting closer and closer,” said Rocco. “The competition level at Stafford is so fierce that it seems like you’re not going to win unless you’re 100% spot on. We’re just missing that little bit right now. I feel any week here we’re going to win one and once we get that first win hopefully we can make it like days of old.”
