It was a challenging start to the weekend for the #1 Silverline Tools Dodge as Simone was struggling to find speed during the Friday practice session.
“This is a difficult place to get a handle on” said CBRT General Manager Joey McColm. “But we made some progress and thought we’d be better during the race.
In the Saturday morning qualifying session Simone earned a starting spot in eighth row, not ideal for the #1 Silverline Tools Dodge.
“Even though we started back in the field we felt the gains we made improving the car would help during the race” explained McColm.
With perfect race conditions Saturday afternoon, the green flag waved to begin the 100-lap event on the track known as the “Magic Mile” and Simone began working his way forward in the #1 Silverline Tools Dodge. With only two quick caution periods for debris it made his job even more challenging. Still, Simone used all his skills and continued to battle his way forward and when the checkered flag fell claimed a top-ten finish.
“It was a pretty good day for us after starting 16th” said Simone. “I was trying to get another spot battling with the 75 car but he got into me a little bit and it’s so hard to pass here I couldn’t get by him. But to get a top-ten and not have a mark on the car is a good day” he added.
“Great job by Anthony and I’m really proud of how hard the whole #1 Silverline Tools team worked this weekend. We’re really looking forward to Jukasa next weekend” added Joey McColm.
The #1 Silverline Tools Dodge team returns to action for the final event of the 2019 NASCAR Pinty’s Series season this coming Saturday at Jukasa Motor Speedway near Hamilton, ON.
