The NASCAR Whelen Modified and Southern Modified Tours came together on Aug. 18 at Bristol Motor Speedway for the Bush’s Beans 150 combination race.
The race will be televised tonight at 7 pm ET on NBCSN and streamed on NBC Live Extra.
Schedule-wise, it’s the 11th of 15 races for the Whelen Modified Tour this season, and the seventh of 11 for the Southwest Modified Tour.
It’s the 14th time both series have squared off in a combination race, with NWMT drivers coming away with the win each time, including the last six at Bristol.
Woody Pitkat, of Stafford, Connecticut, qualified on the pole with a Whelen track record of 14.654 seconds (130.940 mph), breaking Donny Lia’s old record set in 2009 of 14.806 seconds (129.596 mph).
The No. 22 Our Racing Chevrolet won the previous two years at Bristol, with Mike Stefanik behind the wheel in 2013 and Tommy Barrett Jr. in 2014. Legendary Northeast driver Ted Christopher will be driving the 22 in this race.
