  1. Way to go silk any car he gets in he gets the most out of it.He should be in a tour ride.

  2. Something went wrong with the 6 car, it was checking out and then faded. It should have no problem running flat out for 50 laps. In the post race interview, they said that they have to change the motor.

    Silk had a great race. Looking forward to seeing him do well this week.
