Silk Takes Control With Thompson Score

THOMPSON, Conn. — Ron Silk needed a big day on Sunday at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park if he wanted to keep pace with Justin Bonsignore in the battle for the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour championship. The two traded the lead multiple times in the final 50 laps, with Silk emerging as the race leader following a back-and-forth battle shortly after a lap-101 restart. Multiple caution flags would follow, but Silk held the lead ahead of Bonsignore during each restart. The final restart with 12 laps left would prove vital to Silk not only winning the race, but potentially winning the championship. Bonsignore quickly fell off the pace and dropped to the tail of the field before he eventually got his car back up to speed. Bonsignore was able to gain a few positions after his late-race mishap to finish 13th. The victory by Silk unofficially gives him a 13-point lead on Bonsignore heading into the season finale at Martinsville Speedway on Oct. 26.
