Andrew Krause scores first NWMT pole at Thompson

In his 32nd try, Andrew Krause earned his first NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour pole award on Saturday.

Krause, driving the No. 24 Supreme Manufacturing Chevrolet, posted a fast lap of 18.893 seconds (118.527 mph) to score the pole ahead of the Sunoco World Series 150 at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park. His previous best qualifying effort was a second at his home track, Wall Stadium Speedway, in May.

“It was awesome,” Krause said. “This is one of our favorite tracks to come to on the tour. We just made the right adjustments… everything fell in line and we were able to capitalize on it.”

With the championship title set to be handed out on Sunday, the two drivers contending for the crown weren’t far behind. Justin Bonsignore, who trails Doug Coby by 19 points, was second in qualifying and will join Krause on the front row. Coby, who is looking for a sixth Whelen Modified Tour title, qualified third.

Coby will clinch the championship with a top-15 — regardless of what Bonsignore does.

Patrick Emerling and Chris Pasteryak were fourth and fifth, respectively. Ron Silk was sixth, followed by Bobby Santos III, Craig Lutz, Woody Pitkat and Timmy Solomito.

The NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour returns to the track for the Sunoco World Series 150 on Sunday, October at 13, at 3:30 p.m. The race will air live on FansChoice.TV.
