Doug Coby slipped past Bobby Santos eight laps from the finish to win the TSI Harley-Davidson 125 at Stafford Motor Speedway on Friday and become the only driver with more than one win this season.

Coby’s first win came in the tour's first visit to Stafford last month.

For the Milford, Conn., driver – who was making his 118th start – it marked his fourth career win and his third victory on Stafford’s half-mile oval.

The driver of the No. 52 Reynolds Auto Wrecking/Furnace & Duct Chevrolet started fifth but had to pit on Lap 27 under caution for a flat right front tire. He charged back and chased down Santos, who had won the Coors Light Pole Award earlier in the day and led the race from the drop of the green. Coby closed in on the leader with 10 laps to go and on his second attempt slipped by for the lead.

Santos held on for second, followed by Ron Silk, Todd Szegedy and Rowan Pennink. Keith Rocco, Ted Christopher, Woody Pitkat, Jimmy Blewett and Justin Bonsignore completed the top 10.

Coby previously won the Spring Sizzler at Stafford in 2006 and earlier this year. With Friday night's win, Coby took the points lead over defending champion Silk by five points after four events.

The NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour will be back in action when it visits Waterford (Conn.) Speedbowl for the first time since 2006 for the Mr. Rooter 161 on Saturday, June 23.
