Preece Looks To Join Evans, Stefanik
Ryan Preece and the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour head to Loudon, N.H., this Saturday for the first of two events this season at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Preece will attempt to become just the third driver in tour history to win four races in a row, done previously by Mike Stefanik (1997) and NASCAR Hall of Famer, the late Richie Evans (1985). Saturday’s Town Fair Tire 100 will be broadcast live on SPEED (1 p.m. ET).
Preece will race up to four times this weekend. The 22-year-old from Berlin, Conn., will also attempt to make his NASCAR Nationwide Series debut at New Hampshire for Tommy Baldwin Racing. Preece will also run twice in Connecticut in his NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Modified (Thursday at Thompson & Friday at Stafford).
Also this Saturday will be the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East at Columbus (Ohio) Motor Speedway and the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series presented by Mobil 1 at Motoplex Speedway and Event Park in Vernon, B.C.
This past weekend saw three touring series in action across three countries. Quebec native Andrew Ranger gave the hometown crowd at Circuit ICAR (Mirabel, Que.) something to cheer Sunday with a win in the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series. George Brunnhoelzl III went wire-to-wire at Caraway Speedway in Asheboro, N.C., Saturday to score a record 20th career win in the NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour. Across the Atlantic in Tours, France, Frédéric Gabillon recorded his first victories in the NASCAR Whelen Euro Series as he swept Saturday and Sunday’s 100-lap events.
