Ron Silk pulled away from the field on a green-white-checkered finish to win the New Hampshire 100 Saturday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway and take back to the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour points lead.

Silk got a push from Todd Szegedy on the final restart to open some ground on the rest of the field and was unchallenged over the final two laps. Szegedy, who won the tour race in June, finished second followed by Justin Bonsignore.

Silk won the Coors Light Pole Award Thursday and led the most laps in Saturday's race to erase a 12-point deficit to Szegedy with two races remaining. Silk leads 2182-2174.

There were 17 lead changes among five drivers.

The New Hampshire 100 aired live on SPEED.

The NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour will return to the track Sunday, Oct. 2 for the CARQUEST Fall Final at Stafford (Conn.) Motor Speedway.
