Justin Bonsignore tops NWMT World Series Thompson practice

The championship finalists ran first and second in the session …

It’s title weekend, and Justin Bonsignore is showing he has the speed he needs to close the gap.

Bonsignore trails Doug Coby by 19 points in the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour championship standings entering Sunday’s season-finale at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park. But, in preparation for the 150-lapper, he topped the final practice session of the season.

Bonsignore drove the No. 51 Phoenix Communications Inc. Chevrolet to a fast time of 18.606 seconds (120.929 mph), posting his time in the second half of the session. Coby posted his fast lap early and was second at the conclusion of the 80-minute session.

Coby drove the No. 2 Mayhew Tools Chevrolet to a lap of 18.669 seconds (120.929 mph). The Milford, Connecticut veteran is looking for his sixth Whelen Modified Tour championship, while Bonsignore is seeking his second straight.

Behind them, three-time winner Ron Silk was third, while Anthony Nocella and Chris Pasteryak, who earned his first Mayhew Tools Dominator Pole Award in the most recent event at Stafford Motor Speedway, completed the top five.

Matt Swanson was sixth, followed by Chase Dowling, Woody Pitkat, Craig Lutz and Rob Summers.

The NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour returns to the track for group qualifying at 4 p.m. on Saturday afternoon. The season-finale will take the green flag on Sunday, just after 3:30 p.m. The race will air live on FansChoice.TV.
