April 26, 2014 — By Jason Cunningham, NASCAR — Getty Images for NASCAR photo — STAFFORD, Conn. – Woody Pitkat was fastest in practice and qualifying in the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour season-opener, and at Stafford Motor Speedway he’s picked up right where he left off in early April at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park.

Pitkat posted a fast lap of 18.035 seconds (99.806 mph) in NAPA Auto Parts Spring Sizzler 200 practice, which was delayed by four hours at the start due to rain at the track.

Reigning tour titlist Ryan Preece finished second on the speed chart at 18.080 (99.588), just ahead of two-time Spring Sizzler winner Doug Coby at 18.081 (99.552).
