When the Cat’s Away, The Mice Will… Race On the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour?

Patrick Emerling Swaps Grits for Chowder: Full-Time Return to the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour!

Start your engines because Patrick Emerling is hitting his home turf full-tilt once again, and this time, he’s not merely dipping his toe in the water. He’ll plunge head-first into a full NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour schedule while stirring up dust on the NASCAR Xfinity Series’ part-time schedule in 2024. Now a man knows the juiciest bait hooks the biggest fish!

Currently based in the land of Tar Heels and pulled pork, Emerling is eyeing the “howdah” circuit up north and licking his lips. With a new alliance alongside car owner and automotive sensei Rich Gautreau, the dynamic duo is gunning for the Full Monty on the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour. Regarding returns, Rob Fuller and his team will be lending their car-wizard hands to enhance the performance of this revived powerhouse.

Rumors are swirling about a possible championship pursuit, but champion or not, what’s clear is that Emerling’s love for racing runs deeper than a Carolina BBQ sauce marinade. He said, “We’ve built a great foundation there and have a bright future. I’ll still be around the Xfinity Series in 2024, but the opportunity to go after the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour championship was too sweet to pass up.”

The energy in the team is second to none as they welcome mechanical maestro and crew chief Dale Headquist, who’s no stranger to the taste of victory himself. Combining Emerling’s burning desire for a title and Headquist’s focus on coming out strong and consistent is enough to put competitors on the hot seat.

And we’re not talking about a few errands, folks; this is a full-blown, 16-event rollercoaster trip stretching from Florida to North Carolina. It flags off nirvana-style at New Smyrna Speedway’s world series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing on Feb. 10, 2024. And oh boy, you can expect more oomph, action, and perhaps a touch of déjà vu than a black and white checkered flag in the coming year.

Remember, folks, while the bears hibernate, the natural predators stalk the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour. So whether you’re a gearhead, a thrill-seeker, or someone who loves a good comeback story, keep one eye on the road and the other on Emerling. His engine might not be revving yet, but when it does, you best be ready for one blisteringly good show. Isn’t it swell to have him back?
