Newman Enters NHMS' July Modifieds Race
Three-time New Hampshire Motor Speedway winner Ryan Newman will go for his third straight NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour victory during the F.W. Webb 100 on Saturday, July 16.
The Sprint Cup Series star swept both of the mighty modified events at “The Magic Mile” in 2010, capturing the pole and checkered flag.
“Rocket Man” Ryan Newman will once again pilot the No. 7 Chevrolet, owned by New England native Kevin “Bono” Manion and sponsored by Aggressive Hydraulics/Menards.
“Whenever I get the chance to run the modified car, I jump at it,” said Newman. “The race in New Hampshire is always so much fun; it’s pretty exciting from inside the car so I can only imagine what a great show it is for the fans. New Hampshire is a great track to race at and so much fun in a modified car, because they are running so fast on the straightaways. It’s normally a fight right to the end. I am hoping we can continue the streak from 2010.”
F.W. Webb will sponsor the fan favorite, bump-draft style racing event for the second consecutive year.
“This sponsorship provides another great opportunity for the F.W. Webb brand,” said Jeff Pope, president of the F.W. Webb Company. “We are pleased to be back for the second year in a row sponsoring one of the best forms of racing in the Northeast.”
The NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour will join the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, the NASCAR Nationwide Series and the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East during the LENOX Industrial Tools 301 weekend.
