Doug Coby took advantage of a late-race incident and drove to victory in the NASCAR Whelen Modified-Whelen Southern Modified Tour portion of the UNOH Battle At The Beach on the short track at Daytona.

This was Coby’s first start in the No. 2 of Mike Smeriglio III Racing. The team won the inaugural UNOH Battle At The Beach a year ago with Steve Park behind the wheel. The reigning Whelen Modified Tour champion, Ryan Preece led the first 147 laps after winning the Coors Light Pole Award. But lap car Dave Sapienza got into Preece on Lap 141 to damage his left rear wheel. On the ensuing restart Preece faded wide in Turns 1 and 2 to open the door for Coby, who restarted third.
