Ryan Newman just told reporters that the drivers on the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour are just as good as the drivers in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series in his opinion. 
5:15
Its been a tough day for Eric Beers. The Modified veteran blew his engine after only 19 laps of practice today. While Beers’ car is loaded on the hauler and finished for the weekend, Eric is not going home. He’ll get to race on Saturday, wheeling the backup car for the Boehler #3 team (Ryan Preece).

“Its a car I’m familiar with,” said Beers. “Its the same car I drove when I raced with their team a few years ago.”

Beers will not attempt to qualify today and will start in the rear. He’ll practice the car in the Saturday morning session.

“I’ve got a long way to go,” laughed Beers. “I’m gonna come from the back!”

5:14
This is Ryan Newman’s third career NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour pole.

Another exchange after WMT Qualifying:

Ryan Preece to Ryan Newman – “I think that you should bring it to Thompson for the World Series.”

Ryan Newman – “When is it?”

Ryan Preece – “October”

Ryan Newman – “I’ll do it if you split the cost of the jet fuel.”

5:12
Doug Coby was fourth quickest in NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour practice, but then blew the spec engine in his #12 T&S Haulers Modified.  It remains to be seen if the team will change engines tomorrow and line up at the tail of the field for Saturday’s WMT race. 
5:10
Todd Szegedy said after qualifying that he qualified best of the regulars for the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour race.  Polesitter Ryan Newman heard the comment and quipped, “So I’m irregular now?”.  The two racers then shared a good laugh.

Not yet. The new track is between turns one and two we are told, so it is not something easily seen from the infield unless you go to the veerrryyy end of pit road. There should be a great view of it though from the “Concord” grandstands in that area of the track. 
3:19
Comment From Jason “Stix” Buckley – LN 

Has Speed51.com had a chance to take a look at the new quarter-mile oval in turns one and two that will be used by the Legends Cars on Sunday prior to the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series pre-race festivities?

Do you have the qualifying order for the modifieds?

We have started our photo galleries from New Hampshire Motor Speedway for the weekend. They will be updated throughout the weekend and can be viewed at the Speed51.com Facebook page. 
2:57
Currently, the track is quiet. Qualifying for the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour and NASCAR K&N Pro Series East teams will be taking place in a short while.

We spoke with Dale Quarterley who said his car was pushing real bad and he got up into the wall coming off turn four. He had a smile on his face, but he was upset. Both him and Rowan Pennink were on their way back to the pits to make repairs. 
2:21
No, I don’t think so. If The Reg was given the opportunity to get into a good ride, I suspect he would be right there for it. 
2:21
Comment From Spencer Lewis 

Has the reg retired from active competition now? 

2:21
We have just learned that Dale Quarterley, not Erick Rudolph, was one of the cars involved in the wreck. Rowan Pennink was the other driver involved. 
2:14
Comment From Mike Ray 

Have you seen Reggie in the Mod garage today.I wish he would at least try and run N.H. but I know Jimmy B. is in the #14 now.Thanks 51. 

2:14
We have not seen Reggie Ruggiero here yet today, but we suspect that he might be here because several of the creations that he and business partner Eddie Flemke build under the Raceworks banner are in the field.

We are currently under a red flag during NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour practice for fluid on the track. 
1:58
Modified practice is underway right now, but there is not live timing and scoring, so we’ll have to wait until after the session is complete to get you that information. 
1:58
Comment From BOBBY D. 

WHAT ARE THE MODIFIED PRACTICE TIMES ??? 

1:57
We weren’t sure, so we dialed up LegendsNation.com head honcho Jason Buckley who informs us that Timmy Hill is the Legends driver from Port Tobacco, Maryland. 
1:46
Corey Lajoie has a perfect record on the NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour. He drove a second car for the Hillbilly Racing team at Atlanta Motor Speedway (GA) and won that race. He has not run a race on the tour since.

Comment From Guest 

does corey lajoie still race Modifieds in the south?

Inspired by the famous “Yard of Bricks” at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, a new start/finish line was unveiled at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway this morning.

The “Granite Stripe” is a six-inch thick, two-foot-wide strip of New Hampshire granite that stretches across the 65-foot wide NHMS front straightaway at the start/finish line. New Hampshire is known as the Granite State.

Swenson Granite, located in Concord, N.H., created the Granite Stripe. It will eventually feature three engraved logos documenting the history of the track: New Hampshire Motor Speedway, Bryar Motorsports Park and the New Hampshire International Speedway logo emblems will all have a permanent home at new rock solid finish line.

Saturday’s NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour race from New Hampshire Motor Speedway will air on a near-live basis on SPEED starting at 1pm ET. There’s nothing like watching these Modifieds at NHMS live and in person, but if you can’t make it to the track on Saturday, or live in another part of the country, you can watch it on television as an alternative. 
12:51
Dale Quarterley, a former regular in what is now the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East division, is driving the #52 Wayne Darling-owned Modified in this week’s NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour event. Quarterley won with the car in the WMT race at Lime Rock Park (CT) earlier this summer. Matt Hirschman and Chris Pastreyak have also driven for the team in the past. The team formerly ran in the East Series as well, having put together several strong runs in the past for Jerry Marquis at NHMS.

Brandon Ward will drive the #7 East Series car this weekend. It is the same ride that Ryan Duff had been driving. Ware is a bit of a jack of all trades in short track racing – having competed in PASS South, UARA-Stars, Pro Cup and on the NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour in the past.

Doug Coby is driving a second car out of the TS Haulers stable in this week’s NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour race here at NHMS. Coby will drive the #12 Modified, with a spec engine in it, as a teammate to his brother-in-law, Ron Silk.

The car that Matt Kobyluck is running in the NACSAR K&N Pro Series East race this week at NHMS is the same car that he recently finished fifth at Gresham Motorsports Park (GA) with. It is also a car that he visited victory lane with at Nashville’s Fairgrounds Speedway (TN) prior to this season.

A few drivers in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East division took advantage of an off weekend last week to tackle various short tracks across the United States. D.J. Shaw finished 14th and Matt Frahm finished eighth in Sunday’s PASS 300 Super Late Model race at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway (ME). Max Gresham ran the ARCA Racing Series event at Toledo Speedway (OH), but dropped out of the event early with brake problems and was credited with a 23rd-place finish. The week before, Jody Lavender finished second in the PASS South race at North Wilkesboro Speedway in a Super Late Model that he designed and built himself. Andrew Ranger has also been racing up in the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series in his free time this year – recently winning on the road course in Montreal.

The NHMS race will be the final start in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East division for Julian Camilo Albaraccin this season. Albaracin has driven the #54 entry of Fadden Racing in four East Series races in 2010 and will return to the ride in 2011. He will skip the season finale at Dover next week though to instead compete in an event in Columbia using a Fadden Racing car that was delivered to his hometown of Bogotá last January. He will compete in that race, which is on a road course. The Fadden Racing team will compete at Dover with a driver to be named later.

Ryan Newman will drive the #7NY Modified in the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour race here this weekend at NHMS. Running this type of racecar is something that Newman just loves to do.

“These cars are a blast to run,” said Newman. “I wish we had an opportunity to race those types of cars in front of our fans—you know the Sprint Cup drivers. Just the way they draft, the way they race, I love it. It’s kind of where I grew up racing, in reference to a lower center of gravity, offset chassis, lot of horse power, lot of tires. It goes back to my roots, but I really like the racecars and it’s a great racetrack for them.”

Newman has run two WMT races so far this year for car owner Kevin “Bono” Manion – and he’s won them both. So will the third time also be the charm?

“I’m going to try to do three for three this year, but it is Bono’s year. Bono is having a heck of a year, so we’re going to try to finish it off for him,” said Newman.

Matt Kobyluck will be making his 30th career start at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in what is now the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East ranks this week.

D.J. Shaw will be running the same car at New Hampshire Motor Speedway this weekend that he ran in the June NASCAR K&N Pro Series East event here. Shaw’s team bought the car from the #88 team of Jody Lavender prior to this season and have not run it since the June race here.

Once upon a time, when it was known as the NASCAR Busch Grand National North Series, the NASCAR East Series was primarily a New England-based short track tour with drivers like Jamie Aube, Kelly Moore, Joe Bessey, Mike Stefanik, Dale Shaw, Bobby Dragon, Andy Santerre, Mike Rowe, Joey Kourafas, Dave Dion, Jerry Marquis, Brad Leighton and the late Stub Fadden representing the six New England states.

Now, the series has grown and attracted drivers all over the world to compete within it. Only eight of the thirty two drivers entered this weekend are now from New England. Those “homers” are Alan Tardiff from Maine; D.J. Shaw, Matt Frahm and John Salemi from New Hampshire; Jeff Anton and Eddie MacDonald from Massachusetts along with Matt Kobyluck and Scott Bouley from Connecticut. Corey LaJoie also has family roots in Norwalk, Connecticut but calls North Carolina home these days.
