In 2017, Preece won two of three events at the half-mile, and finished second in the Fall Final last October. Sunday, in the first of three Whelen Modified Tour appearances at Stafford this season, Preece found himself carrying the checkered flag once again, capturing his second straight NAPA Spring Sizzler. The victory was the 21st career in Whelen Modified Tour competition for Preece, and his eighth at the historic Stafford half-mile. He led a race-high 91 laps, including the final 29.
