CHRIS FONTAINE SCORES SECOND AT DESOTO
Chris Fontaine scored a second place finish in the 75 lap Super Late Model race at Desoto Speedway on Saturday, March 8.
After a 12-car inversion, Fontaine started the race in the eighth spot.
" It was a really fast-paced race from the beginning, everybody drove real hard from the start to the finish. We passed a couple of cars on the outside on the restarts," Fontaine said.
"With about 25 to go we got in second place, and had to run the leader down on the straightaways. It took me about 20 laps to get to him," he said, adding," I got against him in turn four and tried to make the pass, but I wore my car out. When I got to him I could just barely hang with him at that point."
"We were a little faster than the leader at the end, but I just wore the car out to get to him," Fontaine said.
The next race for Chris Fontaine and the #47 Glenden Enterprises Super Late Model team will be this Saturday, March 15th at Showtime Speedway in Pinellas Park, FL.
Fontaine won the last race he ran in at Showtime Speedway on December seventh of last year.
"We are going to try to make it two in a row. We are going to go with close to the same setup, I know we want to try a couple of things, and I am looking forward to trying to be dominant again there," Fontaine said.

Chris Fontaine and the Glenden Enterprises race team are preparing the #47 Glenden Enterprises Super Late Model for this Saturdays race at Desoto Speedway in Bradenton, FL.
The last time Fontaine raced at the track on February 1st of this year, he got in a wreck that took him out of the race on lap 47. He was credited with a 20th place finish.
"We're going back with the car just how it was. It was good enough to lead before I got wrecked. We are leaving everything the same and we are going to go try to win," Fontaine said.
Last year, he accumulated three top five finishes out of four races at the track.
