Back in April, Doug Coby walked away from a wrecked race car without even completing one lap in the Icebreaker 150 at Thompson (CT) Speedway Motorsports Park. Six months later, Coby capped the season at Thompson by completing an unthinkable comeback to win his fifth NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour championship.
Sunday's fifth-place finish in the Sunoco World Series 150 was enough to completely erase his disastrous start to the season and wrap up his fourth straight title. The Milford, Conn. driver becomes the first driver since the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour began in 1984 to accomplish the feat and only the third in the history of NASCAR modifieds, joining NASCAR Hall of Famers Richie Evans and Jerry Cook.

Sometimes when you don't have the best car a driver must rely on instincts and experience to get the win. Doug Coby used both and it paid big dividends for the veteran at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

He used lapped traffic in Turn 4 with 11 laps remaining in the 150-lap feature to get by Danny Bohn and win the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour Southern Slam 150. Coby started up front after winning the Coors Light Pole and jumped out to an early lead. Bohn was able to pass him on a restart on Lap 81 and stayed out front until Coby made his bold move to get back in front and hold on for his 24th career win. Bohn ended up second while rookie Calvin Carroll finished third. Jamie Tomaino rebounded after being involved in the first caution of the race on the green flag lap to finish fourth and Bobby Measmer Jr. completed the top five.
