The 2014 NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour is the 30th season of the Whelen Modified Tour (WMT). It began with the UNOH Battle at the Beach at Daytona International Speedway on February 18, which did not count towards the championship. The first race for the championship was the Icebreaker 150 presented by Town Fair Tire at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park on April 6. It ended with the Sunoco World Series 150 at Thompson again on October 19.[1] Ryan Preece entered the season as the defending Drivers' Champion. 2012 champion Doug Coby won the 2014 championship after 13 races, 22 points ahead of Preece.[2] Preece won the last race, which meant he went from sixth to second in the championship.

Notes
  1. ^ The TSI Harley-Davidson 125 was originally scheduled for May 23, but was postponed to May 30 due to heavy rain.[4] The second attempt to run the race was also postponed for similar reasons, and was postponed to June 6.[5]
  2. ^ The Bush's Beans 150 was held as a combined event, with competitors from the Whelen Modified Tour competing along with competitors for the Whelen Southern Modified Tour. The race was run with a series-based point distribution, where drivers received points and statistical credit for their finish relative to other drivers in their series, not to the whole field in general.
  • The Riverhead 200 was originally scheduled to be held at Riverhead Raceway on September 13, but the event was rained out. With the track unable to hold racing after September due to licensing regulations and the lack of an available weekend to hold racing, the event was not rescheduled.[6]
