Fast Track Racing, Winchester Pre-Race Quotes:
Bryan Silas, driver of the No. 11 Nortrax-Holland Pump-Shell Rotella-T-Palm Beach Grading Chevrolet:
On Kansas : “We didn’t have the run we were looking for in the ARCA RE/MAX Series, but we’ll regroup and try again this weekend at Winchester . The last time we were on a short track, we had a top-10 finish; we’ll look to do that again on Sunday.”
On His NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series Debut At Kansas : “It was something I will never forget it. I think we did everything we needed to do last Saturday. The run paid off because NASCAR approved us to run the next truck race at Lowes Motor Speedway in two weeks, so it will be a busy couple of weeks for us, but we’ll be ready.”
On Winchester Speedway : “I like short track racing. It should be a weekend of fun. I honestly think we have a chance at running up front and winning the race. If we can’t win, we just want to finish the best we can and collect some points and stay in the hunt.”
On Early Season Success: “We’re ahead of our game. I think we’ve made some excellent progress with our ARCA program this season and we still have a long way to go. I only think our start and finishes will only improve and I wouldn’t count us out for a win or two by seasons end.”
