Blewett Earns Second Straight Trip to Victory Lane
Fourth Career NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour Win

STAFFORD SPRINGS, Conn. (Aug. 8, 2008) -- Jimmy Blewett visited Victory Lane in a NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour race for the second week in a row when he captured the New England Dodge Dealers 150 Friday night at Stafford Motor Speedway.

The win was the fourth of Blewett's career, and his first at Stafford. He also won at Riverhead (N.Y.) Raceway on Aug. 2. He is the first-back-to-back winner in 2008, and moved up to eighth in the season points standings.

Ed Flemke Jr. finished second and was followed in the top five by Doug Coby, Matt Hirschman and Eric Beers. Kevin Goodale, Mike Stefanik, Danny Sammons and Carl and Charles Pasteryak also registered top 10 finishes.

Ryan Preece led a race-high 71 laps, but due to a penalty on the last lap of the race for aggressive driving, wound up 18th.

Although he finished 15th, Chuck Hossfeld will maintain an 86 point lead over Ted Christopher in the season standings through eight races.

The NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour will return to action at Thompson (Conn) International Speedway on Thursday, Aug. 14 for the New England Dodge Dealers 150 presented by Budweiser. For ticket information, visit Thompson's official Web site (thompsonspeedway.com).
