Tommy Baldwin Racing to compete in NASCAR modified series


Tommy Baldwin Racing announced plans Wednesday to compete in the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour with driver Donny Lia.

It’s a return for Baldwin to his roots. His father raced modifieds and won 54 races with the car number 7NY. Baldwin’s team will use that number with Lia, a two-time series champion, this season.
“This (modifieds) was my introduction to racing,” Baldwin said in a statement from the team. “As a kid it’s really all that I knew. Watching and then ultimately working with my dad not only taught me the technical side, but gave me a competitive spirit. He always said ‘there is no replacement for winning.’

“When I moved to North Carolina, I took my roots with me. I knew that at some point, at some level, I would be back involved with modifieds. I stay in contact with and follow the series regularly. It’s always been an important part of my life and now I will have the opportunity to enjoy great memories and create new ones. With a great driver like Donny behind the wheel, the 7NY team is excited for our first race.”

Tommy Baldwin Racing had fielded NASCAR Cup entries from 2009-16 but won’t compete in the series this season. Baldwin sold his team’s charter to Leavine Family Racing.

Baldwin’s modified team is scheduled to compete in the following series races:


Myrtle Beach Speedway
