MILFORD, Conn. – For the seventh time this season, six-time NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour champion Doug Coby will strap in behind the wheel for Tommy Baldwin Racing this weekend. Coby will compete in the Checkeredflag.com 150 at Langley Speedway on Saturday, August 27, as the Whelen Modified Tour hits the stretch run of the season with Baldwin’s team showing the way in the owner points with just five races to go in the season.

In two previous starts at Langley Speedway, Coby has 134 laps led, all coming in his first stop at the track in 2018. In the second run, he DNF’d after an accident.
The Milford, Connecticut, native feels confident heading south.
“I’m confident it’s a track that Tommy will have a good setup for,” Coby said. “I ran good there the first time we went there and we almost won the race. Tommy’s never been there before, but he has something good going right now and that will keep us fast. It seems like a track position kind of place – if you can qualify good and be up front, you have a better shot at finishing there.”
The race day schedule for the Checkeredflag.com 150 includes one practice session from 3-4 p.m., followed by Mayhew Tools qualifying at 5:30 p.m. The green flag for the race is scheduled for 8:30 p.m. and will air live on FloRacing.TV, for those who can’t make it to the track.
