FONTAINE MAKES IT SIX WINS IN A ROW AT SHOWTIME SPEEDWAY
Chris Fontaine added another win to his record with his sixth in a row at Showtime Speedway in Pinellas Park, FL. on Saturday, July 19th.
Qualifying the Glenden Enterprises #47 Super Late Model, he tied with Scott Grossenbacher for fast time of 13.856.
"I was pretty surprised. I thought we had everyone covered, but he had a great lap, and it was pretty wild that we ran the exact same time," Fontaine said, adding,"with the inversion it put us in second starting on the outside, and the outside is where I like to be. It worked out in our favor, and I was able to hold off the field."
"We had one caution on lap two, and on the restart I got the outside again and was able to hold off the rest of the field for the rest of the race," he said.
When asked how he and the team have been able to accumulate six wins in a row and how they feel about it, Fontaine said,"We had a great car and we keep working on it to make it better. I am proud of everybody and all the work they have put into it. It's pretty amazing and we are all real excited about it. I never thought it would happen, but we got six in the bag, and now we will go for seven."
The next race planned for Chris Fontaine and the Glenden Enterprises #47 race team is on August 2 at Showtime Speedway.
Including his win of the last race of 2013 at the track, Fontaine has six wins in a row there.
His overall 2014 Super Late Model race record stands at five wins and nine top fives out of 13 races.
