For the second time in as many Tour Modified races at this year's World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing, Ron Silk stood in victory lane at night's end at New Smyrna Speedway.

Silk took the lead on lap seven from Patrick Emerling and led the rest of the way in the 50-lap feature to kick off the races that will count for points towards the Tour-type Modified World Series title with a win.

After winning Saturday's NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour season opener, Silk is looking like one of the drivers to beat at this year's World Series.

"A lot of great people around me and great equipment. The car was fantastic. I think we can make it a little bit better for tomorrow night, but it's fun to be down here racing in February. To get two wins in a row to start off is great, and hopefully we can get another one tomorrow."

Preece finished 0.477 seconds ahead of Ryan Preece, while those two drivers distanced themselves from third-place finisher Ronnie Williams. Patrick Emerling finished fourth, with Matt Hirschman rounding out the top five.

"I was making sure I didn't make a big mistake. I knew when he got to second, I had a pretty good gap. I had to manage some lapped traffic. We'll see, maybe we'll have a battle tomorrow night."

Monday's Pro Late Model feature was shortened to 20 laps as rain fell upon New Smyrna Speedway shortly past the halfway point. More importantly for Dawson Sutton, the rain arrived just two laps after he passed Jimmy Renfrew for the top spot, allowing him to claim his third consecutive win in the division.

The last driver to win three consecutive races in the Pro Late Model division at New Smyrna Speedway was Cole Anderson in 2018. Anderson won four straight races and five out of the seven events total at that year's World Series to win the week-long championship.

Monday's rainfall also scratched the Florida Modified feature scheduled for the evening. 602 Modifieds started Monday's program, with Bobby Jones taking the checkered flag.

While Super Late Models did not race Monday, teams did practice ahead of Tuesday's ASA STARS National Tour Clyde Hart Memorial 200. Cole Butcher had the fastest lap in final practice, followed by defending series champion Ty Majeski, Bubba Pollard, Brent Crews and Ty Fredrickson.
