While the statistics sheet might make it look like it was an easy win, Saturday night’s go at the track called “Mad Dog” was anything but that for Doug Coby.

Although he led the final 166 laps of the O’Reilly Auto Parts 200, Coby had to hold off a hard-charging Woody Pitkat to score his third NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour win of the season at Monadnock Speedway.

Coby passed Ryan Preece on Lap 45 and was able to remain at the point in the caution filled race.

Pitkat followed closely in second with Justin Bonsignore coming up just a little short in his bid for a third straight win at the quarter-mile track finishing third. Todd Szegedy and Troy Talman completed the top five.

Eric Goodale rebounded from an early incident to finish sixth with Shawn Solomito, Andy Seuss, Chase Dowling, and Preece rounding out the top 10.

The race was slowed six times by caution with a pair of Red Flags thrown during the race for track cleanup caused by a pair of multicar accidents.

Pitkat was able to jump past Preece in the standings to now lead 329-326. Coby used his win to sit 15 points out of the lead at 314 while Szegedy is just two points out of third place thanks to his recent string of top-five finishes.

The race will be televised on NBC Sports Network on Thursday July 30 at 7 p.m.
