WATERFORD – Ron Silk is making mastery of collecting big money wins at the New London-Waterford Speedbowl the last two years.

Last year Silk collected the big payday of the NorthEast Race Cars & Parts Tri-Track Open Modified Series Dunleavy’s 100 at the New London-Waterford Speedbowl in September.

He returned the track last October and collected a $3,000 check for winning a qualifying event at the Bemer’s Big Show Tri-Track event. In May of this year Silk won the track’s annual NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour event.

Sunday the Norwalk driver was back to collecting big cash just for racing to make the main event.

Silk won the first of two 35-lap qualifying events that will set the field for today’s 65-lap Tri-Track main event. The qualifying event paid Silk, driving a Bob Horn owned ride, $3,000.

“I want to thank the Tri-Track series for letting us come out here and race for [$3,000] for a heat,” Silk said. “That’s pretty awesome.”

Justin Bonsignore of Holtsville, N.Y. was second and Woody Pitkat of Stafford third.

Silk passed Woody Pitkat for the lead following a restart with 20 laps remaining.

“I just got a good restart,” Silk said. “My car just kept getting better and better the longer it went. This car is always fast everytime I drive it, especially here.”

The top 11 finishers in the 20-car heat transferred to the main event. Four drivers will qualify to the feature from the consolation.

First heat qualifiers: Ron Silk, Justin Bonsignore, Woody, Pitkat, John Keivman, Dennis Perry, Ted Christopher, Rob Summers, Todd Annarummo, Andy Jankowiak, Dave Salzarulo, Jeffrey Gallup.

To the consolation: Chris Bakaj, Chris Pasteryak, Ken Darch, Troy Talman, Richard Savary, Sal Accardi, Scott Adams, Dan Meservey, Jeff Rocco.
