   The Chrome Horn - NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour



New Hampshire Motor Speedway
by Polly Reid

Ron Silk of Norwalk, CT earned fast time for the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour Town Fair Tire 100 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway winning the Coors Light pole awardand will lead the thirty-four car field to green on Saturday for car owner Ed Partridge in the Reynolds Auto Wrecking/Schnitzer sponsored Chevrolet.

“The car drove real well,” said Coors Light pole sitter Silk. “We were quick in practice but not really happy with how the car went. We spent a lot of time after practice and changed just about everything we could. We went out for time and the car drove really well. I’ve got to thank my guys – I’m really looking forward to tomorrow.”

Silk crossed the line with a 29.492 second lap with a ‘spec’ engine under the hood followed by Ryan Preece of Berlin, CT at 29.884 seconds and Doug Coby third with a 28.880 second lap.

Eric Berndt and NSCS driver Ryan Newman will make up the top five.

The Coors Light pole award is Silk’s sixth career, his second at the Magic Mile. The NWMT defending champion is also the winner of the last NWMT outing at NHMS back in September.

Rookie of the Year contender Keith Rocco will roll off sixth for the Town Fair Tire 100 with Bryan Chew, Rowan Pennink, Mike Stefanik and Todd Szegedy the top ten.

Ryan Blaney in the McHawk Northeast modified will make his first NWMT career start Saturday. Blaney qualified just outside the top ten at eleventh.

The top three qualifiers, Silk, Preece and Coby are also by coincidence, the top three in the point standings. Coby leads the way with 220 points, Silk follows with 200 with Preece a close third at 197 points. The NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour is scheduled to go green at 1pm – you can follow it here on TheChromeHorn.com with Denise Dupont.
