STAFFORD, Conn. – By Jason Cunningham, NASCAR — Darren McCollester/Getty Images for NASCAR photo — Inclement weather once again spoiled the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour’s attempt to run the TSI Harley-Davidson 125 at Stafford Motor Speedway.
Twice postponed, the race is now slated to run on Friday, June 6.
The third race of the 2014 tour schedule was originally to be contested on May 23, but rain arrived at Stafford that night following practice and qualifying, just prior to the race. In Friday’s second attempt rain cut practice short, and with a forecast for continued precipitation ahead, NASCAR and Stafford reached a decision to postpone the event one more week.
Bobby Santos captured the Coors Light Pole Award for the race during qualifying on May 23. This evening at Stafford his No. 44 Tinio Racing/ImperialCars.com Chevrolet was once again the class of the field in 25 minutes of practice before the rain arrived.
This is a repeat scenario from 2013 with the same event was twice postponed before it ran to completion and Ryan Preece reached in Victory Lane on June 14.
Following the Stafford date, the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour will head to Waterford (Conn.) Speedbowl on Saturday, June 21 for the Mr. Rooter 161.
