BONSIGNORE RULES AT RIVERHEAD
Scores Second Whelen Modified Tour Win At Home Track

Justin Bonsignore has to enjoy racing at Riverhead Raceway.

Bonsignore passed Timmy Solomito in Turn 3 on Lap 9 and waited out a rain delay and a late charge by Todd Szegedy to score his seventh career NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour win and second at his home track.

Bonsignore piloted his No. 51 M3 Technology Chevrolet around some late race traffic to hold off Szegedy and continue of his streak of scoring at least one tour win every year since 2011.

Doug Coby followed Szegedy in third to score his best career finish at Riverhead with Eric Goodale fourth and Woody Pitkat fifth.

Timmy Solomito, who led the first eight laps of the race, followed in sixth while polesitter Tom Rogers Jr. rebounded from having to start the race at the rear of the 28-car field to finish seventh. Ryan Preece was eighth with rookies Vincent Biondolillo and David Sapienza rounding out the top 10.

This was the second career tour win for Bonsignore at Riverhead as the Holtsville, New York, native won at his home track in 2011 in his first tour victory.

The race was slowed seven times for caution with Shawn Solomito and Donny Lia involved in the only multi-car incident in the race on Lap 39. The race also featured a 45 minute red flag for rain to set up the final 51-lap sprint to the finish.

After six points events, the championship standings now feature a tie for the lead between Coby and Preece with 251 apiece. Pitkat sits third, just two tallies back of the co-leaders.

The Riverhead Hoosier Tire East 200 is slated to air on NBC Sports Network Thursday, July 2nd at 6:30 p.m. ET.
