Coby To Run 7 Mod Tour Events For Baldwin

MOORESVILLE, N.C. — Tommy Baldwin Racing announced that six-time NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour champion Doug Coby will pilot the No. 7ny for select series events this season.

The team will begin the season at New Smyrna Speedway for the World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing and the Whelen Modified Tour opener on Feb. 10. 

The team plans to run seven of the 16 Whelen Modified Tour events.

TBR will compete at Richmond (Va.) Raceway on Friday, March 29, Riverhead (N.Y.) Raceway on May 18 and New Hampshire Motor Speedway as part of NASCAR’s National Series weekend on June 22. The combination will return to the track on Wednesday, Aug. 14 at Thompson (Conn.) Speedway Motorsports Park, Saturday, Oct. 5 at North Wilkesboro (N.C.) Speedway and Saturday, Oct. 26 at Martinsville (Va.) Speedway.

“Tommy has a deep racing history in the Modified community and when you drive for him, you know he’s going to bring fast cars to the track,” Coby said. “Having the opportunity to work with them again in 2024 to simply try to win races is something I’m really excited for.”

Coby and Baldwin first paired together in 2022 and won events at Riverhead Raceway and Lee (N.H.) USA Speedway in their first two races together. They also picked up a victory at Langley (Va.) Speedway that season.

“Doug is a proven winner and champion and we’re happy he’s back with us for 2024,” Baldwin said. “We’ve selected a great list of events to compete on the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour at some of their biggest races. We’re looking forward to having Doug back in the seat and it will be all about trying to get trophies.”

The addition of Doug Coby, the Tommy Baldwin Racing driver lineup includes Luke Baldwin, Jack Baldwin and Bryan Narducci.
