Longtime NASCAR Whelen Modified driver Wade Cole has passed away following an accident at his home Sunday.

Cole’s passing was first reported by RaceDayCT.com. He was 67.

From Riverton, Connecticut, Cole made 371 career starts on the tour, running in every season except 1986.

“Just an absolutely great guy that you always looked forward to seeing pull through the gate,” NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour series director Jimmy Wilson told RaceDayCT. “I‘m just absolutely shocked.”

He ran a full schedule in 10 of the last 13 seasons – missing just six starts in that span.

Cole had seven career top 10s and a best points finish of 11th (2017), and his best finish was eighth (twice). However, he was best known for his dogged work ethic and consistent presence in the Whelen Modified Tour garage.

“Wade was a part of the backbone of the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour,” said Wilson in a statement. “Always had a smile on his face, hard working, had fun and happy to be at the race track. Wade will truly be missed by all. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Wade‘s family, friends, race team and fans during this very difficult time.”
