Every year Travis and the team look forward to Speedweek and over the years they’ve been able to put together a string of very strong runs, finishing in the top 10 in points two of the last three years (7th in 2016 & 4th in 2015). “Speedweek is one of my favorite times of the year, it’s nice to get away from work and be on the road racing every night. We’ve had some pretty good runs during Speedweek the last few years and we’re looking to do the same this year,” Philo said.
The Interior Supply/Control Design Solutions backed Philo Motorsports team has spent all week in the shop preparing for this very grueling week. “We’ve put a lot of hours in the shop this week making sure we have everything we need because when we leave today we won’t be back to the shop until next Saturday. We have a great crew (Jim Roby, Red, Jim Philo) going with us for the entire week, so we’re as prepared as we can be,” said Philo.
The Banshee Graphics/Tire-Slick sponsored 5T is coming into the weekend with a most recent 2nd place run with the MOWA series in Lincoln, Illinois as well as a first ever trip to Knoxville Raceway at the Marion County Fairgrounds in Knoxville, Iowa resulting in an 18th place finish.
