Coby Targeting Waterford NEMA Opener
BROCKTON, Mass. – Pointing out “It is good to challenge myself with something different,” NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour champion Doug Coby will get back in a midget at this weekend’s Blast Off at Waterford (Conn.) Speedbowl.
The Northeastern Midget Ass’n and the NEMA Lites are both part of busy two-day agenda. The 25-lap Lites feature is scheduled for Saturday night while the full midgets are on the Sunday agenda. Both will qualify on Saturday.
Coby will be in a “custom” chassis designed by Danny Drinan and Tim Bertrand.
“The car has been re-done from head to foot, a very nice piece,” reports Bertrand.
The car did experience motor problems in last Saturday’s practice and will have a new Autocraft engine this weekend.
