Mike Stefanik, Doug Coby and Tony Hirschman represent the best in the history of the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour. With 18 championships between this trio of drivers, they are etched in history as the best of their respective eras.

Justin Bonsignore in 2021 joined them on an elite list. In the process, the 33-year-old from Holtsville, New York, further marked himself as the driver to beat in the current NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour era.

Bonsignore in 2021 scored his third championship in the last four years. He has won all of his titles with Ken Massa Motorsports, the team for which he has been driving since the start of his full-time tour career in 2010. Bonsignore joins those three historic names as the only drivers in tour history to have three or more championships.
