LOUDON, NH (WWLP) – Ron Silk took down his third win at the Magic Mile in Saturday’s Eastern Propane & Oil 100 NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour race. The race finished under red checkered. The track has had the traction compound. Silk talked about it 22News.

“We’ve been dealing it with for a couple of years so it’s not new. The fact that they weren’t any super long runs. It wasn’t good for the racing but I think it was good for the tires. We didn’t blister any tires like we saw in the All-Star race yesterday (Friday). Really about the time the race started, a lot of it was worn off the second groove,” said Silk.

Doug Coby finished in second.

Chase Dowling finished in third and he talked to 22News about the traction compound.

“Obviously it’s for the Cup Series to make them look better. It doesn’t matter to us. It gives us a bottom groove, a top groove. We’re gonna race the same way we race,” said Dowling.

The race saw 20 lead changes. Doug Coby will take a 28 point lead over Ron Silk heading into Stafford in just two weeks on Friday, August 2nd.
