Donny Lia won for the first time in 2013 on Sunday in the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour. He dominated by leading 147 laps of the CARQUEST Fall Final 150 at Stafford Motor Speedway. The win is the 17th of Lia's career and fourth at Stafford.
It was the Tour's fourth trip to Stafford this season. Lia started from the pole and led the first 76 laps before Ron Silk led from lap 77 to 79. Lia took the lead back on lap 80 and held it after the final restart on lap 96 to motor to a 3.231 second margin of victory over Doug Coby.
Finishing third was Rowan Pennink, Todd Szegedy was fourth, Justin Bonsignore fifth, Mike Stefanik sixth, Ted Christopher seventh, Chuck Hossfeld eighth, and Bobby Santos was the last lead lap car in ninth. Ron Silk finished one lap down in tenth.
Ryan Preece entered the second to last race in the season with a 41 point lead and looking to clinch his first career championship. Preece suffered a late mechanical failure though and finished 15 laps down in 17th. Doug Coby cut Preece's points lead to 26 points with one race left.
The NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour has a break before closing the season out with the 14th race of the season. The Sunoco World Series 150 presented by Xtra Mart at Thompson Speedway will be held on Sunday, October 20th.
