THOMPSON, Conn. – Doug Coby will return to the seat of the No. 10 Mayhew Tools Modified this weekend at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park. Set to compete in the Sunoco World Series 150, Coby will compete in the Doug Coby Racing entry looking to build on the speed the team had at Thompson in August.

After practicing at the front and qualifying inside the top-five, Coby raced through the pack in the final laps to score a third-place finish. This week, he’s hoping to build on that and get back to Victory Lane. The six-time Whelen Modified Tour champion has won multiple Tour races this year, all with Tommy Baldwin Racing. But he wants to take his own car back to the front and victory lane.
“I was really happy with how fast we were with not having a notebook and kind of guessing at the setup to go there with when we were there in August,” Coby said. “There had been some changes with the tires and what others were doing with their cars. To go back to Thompson for the World Series, we have a ton of confidence that we will have a car that can win the race if we do our job during the day.”
Thompson’s World Series weekend schedule includes practice and Mayhew Tools qualifying on Saturday, October 8, and the 150-lap Sunoco World Series race on Sunday, October 9. Tickets will be available at the track and the race will also air live on FloRacing.TV for those who can’t make it to Connecticut.
