Dave Silvernail drove the #84 Modified in the '80s. Bob Silvernail drove the #55 Modified and had his only career Tioga Modified victory in 2002.

What ever happened to Richie Evans Jr.? I remember hearing that he was racing a modified in New Jersey some time ago, and had shown some talent for it. Then the updates stopped, and there hasn't been anything mentioned about him for a long time...

Richie Jr. runs Sixty One Fabrication in Charlotte, NC. He does the go cart and motorcycle thing now in the way of racing. He had a Late Model stint down south before he appeared with his orange #61 Sportsmodified at Tioga and at Wall around 2002. He's on Facebook.
