Race Results

LOUDON, N.H. - Ryan Newman lost the lead and then got it back on the last lap to win Friday’s Whelen All-Star Shootout for the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour at New Hampshire Motor Speedawy.

The 40-lap race, which had a 30-minute time limit, was shortened three laps after a crash between Donny Lia and Patrick Emerling prevented the event from reaching the full distance before the time limit. Lia was transported to a local hospital for further evaluation.

The race restarted with a green-white-checkered finish. Newman restarted first and led coming to the white flag. Justin Bonsignore slipped under Newman in Turn 1 but  Newman got past him on the backstretch.

Bonsignore finished second in the invitation-only race for past champions and race winners. Mike Stefanik placed third with Ron Silk fourth and Bobby Santos fifth.

“I figured the best way not to tear up a bunch of cars was to take the lead in (Turn) 1,’’ Bonsignore said of his move to the lead. “I kind of assumed Newman would get back by me.’’

Said Newman: “I knew I was going to some sort of tow off him. I thought he would be closer coming back to the (finish) line. Everything kind of lined up for us.’’

The race was scheduled to run 40 laps divided into two 20-lap segments with an inversion of four to 10 cars at the 20-lap break. The top 10 cars were inverted.
