Doug Coby wins NWMT Bud: King of Beers 150 pole at Thompson

Doug Coby retained his torrential pace for 2019 on Wednesday night at Thompson Speedway, grabbing his seventh pole of the season, in advance of the Bud: King of Beers 150.

The pole is the 28th of Coby’s career, as he ran a lap time of 18.719 seconds. Behind Coby was Patrick Emerling, followed by Bobby Santos, Justin Bonsignore, and Jimmy Blewett. Sixth was Tommy Catalano. Rounding out the top-10 were Ron Silk, Andrew Krause, Craig Lutz, and Matt Swanson.

“We just have a great car,” Coby said. “We’ve had a great car for the last three or four races in a row here… Hopefully we make the right adjustments tonight, nice three-tire stop tonight will make me happy, and hopefully we can seal the deal tonight.”

Silk is Coby’s closest championship pursuer, 24 points back, and the winner of the two most recent races at New Hampshire and Stafford.

The race will air live and for free on FansChoice.TV momentarily.
