JENNERSTOWN, Pa. — Justin Bonsignore was the last car out in qualifying, and the last driver who could keep Doug Coby from winning yet another Mayhew Tools Pole Award.
Bonsignore did just that.
The 32-year-old from Holtsville, New York, posted a lap of 18.191 to claim his 13th career NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour pole in qualifying for Saturday afternoon’s season opening Morocco Welding/Wade Cole Memorial 133 presented by Dunleavy’s Truck & Trailer Repair.
The lap knocked Coby off the provisional pole. Coby had the fastest lap to that point at 18.278 and will start second.
Coby has 30 career poles, including winning them in eight of last year’s 16 races.
Patrick Emerling qualified third at 18.281, followed by Dave Sapienza and Jon McKennedy.
Matt Swanson, Craig Lutz, Ronnie Williams, Matt Hirschman and Eric Goodale rounded out the top 10. Hirschman had been fastest in the morning practice session.
The opening Morocco Welding/Wade Cole Memorial 133 presented by Dunleavy’s Truck & Trailer Repair is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. live on Trackpass on NBC Gold.
