Without a ride for the 2003 season, Troy was walking through the
pit area of the Madera Speedway before the start of the Vukovich
Classic in June, when Tony Stewart walked up to him, shook his hand
and said, “Hey Troy, where
you been? Did you get tired of winning or what?” That brought a big
smile to both of their faces. It was a wonderful acknowledgement of the
incredible record Troy has put together over the last 9 years. Tony
knows Troy’s driving ability first hand as they have raced against
each other several times.
And no, he isn’t tired of

Holds 7 track records: Salt Lake City, UT,
Pikes Peak, CO, Dodge
City, KS, Wenatchee, WA, Bakersfield, CA, Irwindale, CA, Las Vegas, NV
has raced for 5 different Supermodified teams including:
Jackson, Sr./ Ed Hyder
& Sharon Biswell
Silsby/ Steve Shaw
Interestingly, Ed Hyder and Tom Silsby are the
fathers of West Coast Supermodified racing, and legends of the sport.
And there is one other record that needs
mentioning. During the first Supermodified race at the newly completed
1/2 mile Irwindale Raceway, Troy ran a lap at 14.76 seconds during the
trophy dash. Irwindale’s timing charts only go to 15 seconds flat.
They didn’t think anyone would ever go faster than that!
The Biswell Motorsports #10 looked like an F-15 that night. It
had long vapor trails coming from the tips of its rear wing.
