MOORESVILLE, North Carolina (September 3, 2013) - - Stuart, Florida native Bryan Silas scored his career-best finish in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park (CTMP) on Sunday afternoon.
After dropping to the rear of the field for an unapproved adjustment, Silas, the sophomore full-time NCWTS driver steadily and methodically climbed his way through the field.
Staying on course and posting exceptionally competitive lap times, Silas took the white flag in 13th, but after escaping the last lap-carnage at the front of the field, the 26-year old took the checkered flag in 11th, surpassing his season-best finish of 16th at Michigan International Speedway last month.
Previously, Silas mounted a career-best finish of 12th last October at Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway after also starting a career-best 15th.
The Floridian partially credits the success at the 10-turn, 2.459-mile track to his prior experience at the track in a road course touring series earlier this summer, plus his most recent NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Watkins Glen (N.Y.) International.
“I am so proud of everyone on this T3R2 team,” said Silas. “I love road course racing. It’s a lot of fun. We had a very strong No. 99 Bell Equipment Ford F-Series all weekend long. I made a mistake in qualifying, but promised Gary (Cogswell, crew chief) and the team, I would make it up to them. The track is a lot of fun and it seemed to be a great race for the fans. More importantly, we need to take this finish and build some momentum and have another strong showing at Iowa Speedway on Sunday afternoon.”
Fan Appreciation 200 from Iowa Speedway is set for Sunday, September 8 with live coverage on Fox Sports 1, MRN and SiriusXM Satellite Radio beginning at 1:00 p.m. (Central). Silas will make his fourth career NCWTS start at the 0.875-mile paved oval.
