Story By: KYLE SOUZA / DOUG COBY RACING – MILFORD, CT – Doug Coby is looking to add a fifth NAPA Spring Sizzler victory to his resume this Friday night at Stafford Motor Speedway.
In race two of the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour season, Coby will return to his home track on April 30 to drive the Mayhew Tools No. 10, coming off a sixth-place finish in the Whelen Modified Tour opener at Martinsville Speedway.
The NAPA Spring Sizzler was originally slated to take place on April 25, but weather forced NASCAR & Stafford officials to postpone the race to Friday, April 30.
The Milford, Connecticut, six-time Whelen Modified Tour champion, has 12 victories in 58 career starts at Stafford in tour competition and is also a two-time track champion and multiple-time winner.
“We would have liked to have a stronger run at Martinsville, but if you look at our statistics at Stafford, it’s been a good track for us,” Coby said. “There is a tire rule and some pit stop rules in play for the Sizzler, but we will have a fast car. It’s the Spring Sizzler. It’s one of the biggest races that you mark on your calendar to help kick-off the season. With it being our first New England race of the year, the history of the Sizzler, and the list of drivers who have won that race… I’m excited to go back there.”
Coby will also look to continue a streak of six consecutive top-three finishes at Stafford, dating back to 2018 — a span that includes two victories for the Mayhew Tools team.
