December 16, 2013- GRAND PRAIRIE, ALBERTA – A very busy 2013 season came to an end last weekend as Benjamin, Alex and Team Silco traveled to Las Vegas, Nevada for the annual Winter Nationals event at the Orleans Hotel & Casino. Team Silco was joined on the weekend by John and Samantha Nervo from NC Chassis who assisted the team throughout the weekend.
There was a large field of cars in all divisions, and Benjamin Silliker was able to race his way into three different A-Mains over the weekend. Despite running in the top three throughout most of each event, bad luck hindered the team’s performance. The end result was a third in Jr. Stock, fifth place finish in Jr. Honda, and a seventh place in the Mod Division. Alex Silliker also raced at Vegas, finishing inside the Top 15 and gained valuable experience at a National level.
The team will take a few weeks off to celebrate the Holidays with family and friends, and will get right back on the track on New Years Day as Ben competes at the famed Chili Bowl track in Tulsa, Oklahoma for the Tulsa Shootout. Ben will make his debut in the Black Dog Drilling & Environmental Services 600cc Micro Sprints as well as a Jr. Sprint.
The 2013 season was a very exciting one for Team Silco. Benjamin competed in 89 main events over the course of the year and collected 30 feature wins, 76 top five finishes, and 88 top 10s, finishing outside the top ten on just one occasion all season long. Both Benjamin and Alex are looking forward to 2014.
