CHRIS FONTAINE TO RUN THE #47 GLENDEN
ENTERPRISES SUPER LATE MODEL AT FULL THROTTLE SPEEDWAY SATURDAY
Chris Fontaine and his race team are preparing the #47 Glenden Enterprises
Super Late Model to race in the Super Late Model 75 lap event at
Full Throttle Speedway on Saturday, May 18.
Full Throttle Speedway is the new name of Desoto Speedway in
Fontaine is no stranger to the track. Since he began racing
Late Models and Super Late Models in 2000, Fontaine has collected 8
wins, 28 top five finishes and 47 top 10 finishes out of 69 races he
has run there in the AACS, ASASAT and ASA series.
He finished in the top ten in the Desoto Superspeedway All American
Challenge Series points race four times with ninth place in 2003,
fifth place in 2004, ninth place in 2005 and second place in 2006.
Do you think the track's new pavement will present any challenges?
"From what it looks like on the internet it looks like they took out
some of the bumps and characteristics that we felt were an advantage
to us, but we will see how it goes on Friday night in our first
couple of practices. Desoto is one of my favorite tracks and I can't
wait to get there. Everyone here is very excited to go and we will
see how it goes," Fontaine said.
Do you plan to race for points in the Super Late Model series at
Full Throttle Speedway?
"That wasn't our plan. Originally our plan for this year was to race
all over the Southeastern United States. The new car is taking a
little longer to get prepared, so we will just have to see where
this race leads us, and go race by race," he said.
