Westfield, NC — Ronnie Silk of Norwalk, CT has been named as the new driver for Hillbilly Racing. Silk, one of the up and coming stars of the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour is coming off the most successful season of his young career, having earned his first career Tour victory and finished forth in the point standings. He replaces Woody Pitkat who drove the #79 Coors Light Pontiac in 10 races for Hillbilly Racing in 2007.
The move is made with the hope that this will be the beginning of a long successful relationship. “We’re looking to build a relationship that will last for awhile,” says team owner Roger Hill. “We not only want to win now, but work with a driver who we can have in our car for a number of years. Ronnie Silk is that driver.”
