   The Chrome Horn - NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour


Silk to Pilot the 15-40 Connection Modified in Combined WMT-WSMT Bush's Beans 150

Rob Fuller Motorsports is ready to race against some fresh faces this week, as driver Ron Silk and the team gets ready to compete in the combined NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour (NWMT) and NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour (NWSMT) race at Bristol Motor Speedway on August 19.

I'm looking forward to getting back to the track with the 15-40 team after the break I took last week, said Rob Fuller, team owner. This is probably one of my favorite races and tracks. When the Northern and Southern teams meet the competition is super tight and the racing is better than ever. It's a win-win for the series and the drivers so I'm looking forward to it.

Silk is no stranger to success at Bristol Motor Speedway. In just six starts at the track hes secured one win, two Top-5s and four Top-10s.

It's really incredible how fast you go at Bristol given that its only half a mile long. Its also fun to get the opportunity to race on a track that you watched the Sprint Cup guys race on while growing up, said Silk. We really struggled last week at Thompson Speedway, so I expect to rebound and have a great shot at the win at Bristol.

With the fresh competition comes a sense of excitement for Silk. The NWMT does not get to race against the NWSMT often, so the opportunity to do so is significant. The last time Silk saw some of these competitors was during the All-Star Shootout at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in July.

Its a lot of fun racing the NWSMT guys because we end up having a field of 45 cars, Silk explained. The southern series guys have really stepped up their game over the last few years, and Im sure theyll be right in the thick of things this time around.

Partnering with 15-40 Connection for the third year in a row, the two organizations are working to change the way people think about their health, especially among the younger generation. More than 75,000 teens and young adults (ages 15-40) are diagnosed with cancer each year in the United States. Despite the frequency, improvements in cancer survival rates for 15 to 40-year-olds have barely improved since 1975. 15-40 Connection is working to change that by urging young people to use three simple steps to tell if they would recognize a cancer symptom.

Step one is knowing your normal energy level, sleep patterns, weight, bathroom habits, motor control, and skin complexion. Step two is realizing if there is a subtle change in your normal health that lasts two or more weeks and notifying your doctor. After all, your best chance at survival is you! Step three asks you to share what you know with your doctor. This leads to earlier diagnoses and more effective treatments.
