Ron Silk is rolling into the summer hot.

Silk, of Norwalk, won Tuesday in the Tri-Track Open Modified Series $10,000 To Win Open Wheel Wednesday event at Seekonk (Mass.) Speedway.

The race was originally scheduled for June 27, but was stopped for rain that night after 22 laps were completed.

Matt Hirschman of Northampton, Pa. was second and Chase Dowling of Roxbury third.

It was the second big win in less than two weeks for Silk, who was driving at Seekonk for car owner Bob Horn.

Silk drove to victory in the Valenti Modified Racing Series 50-lap event at the New England Short Track Showdown on June 24 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway driving for team owner Kevin Stuart.

Silk was running fourth when the red flag flew for rain on June 27 at Seekonk with Richard Savary leading, Hirschman in second and Keith Rocco third.

Tuesday Silk moved to the lead on lap 36 by Savary but then gave up the lead to head to the pits under yellow on lap 57.

Silk returned to action and clawed back to the front quickly, moving to fourth on lap 65 and then following Dowling past Woody Pitkat to move to third on lap 66. On a lap 71 restart Silk was able to get by Dowling for second and then move past Todd Annarummo to take over the lead for good on lap 72.

  1. Best race of the season. Lots of talent. Lots of lead changes. Tri-Track races are the best. Seekonk did a great job on this one.

  2. Great job Ron Silk!

  3. knucklesmahoney says

    Nice job for Silk. I had a feeling, even last week that he was the guy to beat.

  4. Hey Tri-Track, nice job.

  5. Ron silk is no joke…GREAT driver.
    If he ran t stafford he would be a threat every friday !!!

  6. Do you have a complete finish ?

  7. open wheel fan says

    Going to make the 3 hour trip to Star Speedway to see the next Tri Track Race. Looking forward to July 28th.

  8. Bruce,
    It’s at the bottom of the story.

  9. steve jesus says

    Really bad call DQing Dan Meservey.

  10. And Meservey did what to deserve the DQ?

  11. Attendee says

    I love how there is a lot of commenters on this site who never attend the very races they do the most commenting on. Meservey hit another car under caution on purpose. Easy DQ call for scambato.

  12. And there it is, but he did not deserve it. How so? You must have missed that little stunt Steve.

  13. IT’S UNFAIR!!!!! WHA! WHA!!! WHAAAAAA!!!!
