Tommy Barrett Jr. Finds Victory Lane In Bush’s Best Beans 150

Nineteen-year-old Tommy Barrett Jr. had a fantastic final restart with just four laps to go and drove away from Bobby Santos and Justin Bonsignore to score his first win in the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour in the No. 22 Canto Paving/Ferguson Waterworks Chevrolet.

In his tenth career start, the Massachusetts native worked his way around Santos and led the final 12 laps en route to victory. Santos seemed to be well on his way to victory and easily drove away from Barrett on an earlier restart, but in the post-race interview, Santos said his car became tight and he could not hold off the hard charging Barrett.

Bonsignore, last week’s winner at Thompson, started from the pole position and ran strong all night, but ended the night in sixth in his No. 51 in his chem3.com Chevrolet.

NASCAR Sprint Cup Series star, Ryan Newman, who has competed in several modified events over the last several years, worked his way up from the 11th place starting spot to finish fifth. Newman, however, never seemed to be a threat to win.

Wednesday night’s race was also the sixth time that the North and South divisions of the Whelen Modified Tour competed in a combination race. JR Bertuccio was crowned the winner of the Southern Tour with his 13th place overall finish. He will, however, be credited for a win in his division.

The NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour now travels to Riverhead Raceway for the Riverhead 200 on September 13.
