For starters, seven wins in 15 events is nearly unheard-of with the depth of talent on the tour, but it wasn’t just checkered flags that the team hoarded. Doug Coby piloted the No. 2 Chevrolet to six poles and led an astounding 36-percent (830 of 2,280) of the laps on the year.-NWMT

Doug Coby capped the 2015 NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour (NWMT) season with his third title in four years, and in the process became just the third driver to claim three or more titles in the 31-year history of the tour.

Coby, who earned his first title in 2012 with Darling Racing, made the move to Mike Smeriglio III Racing for the 2014 campaign and has delivered the team its first two titles. After one win together last year, they rolled to seven in the title defense. Coby became the first driver in tour history to win each of a season’s final three races. His career-best seven wins were tied for the most in a single season since Mike Stefanik’s record 13 in 1998. The champ also turned in career highs for poles (six), top fives (11) and laps led (830), and tied his career best with 12 top 10s.-NWMT

The season finale for the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour featured three drivers in contention for the championship in the Sunoco World Series 150 at Thompson (CT) Speedway Motorsports Park. It was unfortunate that two of those competitors had to go up against Doug Coby.

Coby dominated the event in his No. 2 Dunleavy's/HEX/A&J Romano Construction Chevrolet, and despite having to just finish second to Justin Bonsignore to clinch the title, made a daring pass on Lap 145 to sweep all four races this season at the track and win his third tour championship.
