HOLTSVILLE, N.Y. – Justin Bonsignore, a two-time NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour champion, announced on Friday he will compete for team owner Jimmy Paige in the six Tri Track Open Modified Series events.

Bonsignore will drive the same No. 00 he drove for Paige in the 2020 Tri Track finale at Stafford Motor Speedway, where he finished fourth in the Modified Classic 81.

“I am really excited for an opportunity to run the Tri Track Open Modified Series in 2021 and drive for Jimmy Paige and his entire team,” Bonsignore said. “I enjoyed racing with them at Stafford, and loved the family atmosphere.”

The combination will begin their tenure together at Monadnock Speedway in the Tri Track opener on Saturday, May 1. Bonsignore is no stranger to Monadnock – having won the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour event at the track in 2020. Paige and the No. 00 team have also shown plenty of speed at Monadnock in previous events.

Bonsignore will also compete with the team at Star Speedway (May 22), Seekonk Speedway’s annual $10,000 to win Open Wheel Wednesday (June 30), Star Speedway’s annual SBM (July 24), Monadnock (August 14) and Seekonk’s annual Haunted Hundred (Oct. 23).

Bonsignore will also compete for Ken Massa Motorsports this year as he chases his third NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour title. The team also has intentions of competing in the Thompson 300 at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park as part of Thompson’s Sunoco World Series of Speedway Racing in October, and the annual Islip 300, set for November 13.
