When it was all said and done, Woody Pitkat finished in the same Whelen Modified Tour points position he had the year before, and actually had two less top 10s, but it was a transformational year for the veteran.
After seven seasons of mostly full-time competition, Pitkat scored the first two race and pole wins of his career, and registered a personal-best five top fives. The long-awaited first win appropriately came at his hometown track, Stafford, in the August event and he reached Victory Lane on the tour’s biggest stage three races later in the September New Hampshire race. 2014 was the year Pitkat became a contender.-NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour Tue, Dec 30, 2014 12:14:00 PM
