Silk Looks To Stay On A Roll At Stafford
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Heading into the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour season-opener two weeks ago, storylines were aplenty: Past champions returning to the Tour or changing teams, up-and-comers looking to become contenders, weekly standouts getting a touring series opportunity. And what happened? The defending champ reminded everyone why his trophy has yet to collect any dust.
Much like when he became a championship contender a year ago, Ron Silk entered the Icebreaker at Thompson (Conn.) International Speedway on April 15 with little limelight. Yet once again, he was standing in Victory Lane with the hardware at the end of the day.
After adding the Icebreaker trophy to his growing collection, the Norwalk, Conn., driver is now focused on winning this week’s CARQUEST Tech-Net Spring Sizzler at Stafford (Conn.) Motor Speedway. Silk has now reached the point in his career where going after premier event wins has become a goal, and the Spring Sizzler is every bit as prestigious as winning the Icebreaker.
