He had qualified 16th and started the race in the 15th spot.

"We never figured out a good setup, and had trouble all weekend. The guys worked their tails off as hard as they could and we just couldn't figure it out," Fontaine said. "All in all it just wasn't a very good night for us," he said, adding, "I appreciate everybody's hard work."

This coming Friday, July 3, Fontaine and the Glenden Enterprises Race team will be racing in the Brighthouse Challenge Series Clyde Hart Memorial 100 at New Smyrna Speedway.

"We will have a good race and try not to do anything terrible. We are going to try to get the car better. I don't know if we are going to win this one, but we will do our best," he said.

"We are going to test there Wednesday and Thursday. We are going to do the best we can, and try to maintain our points lead. I am proud of the guys. The cars they are giving me are really, really good, and they don't break down on me. If we have issues during practice, they make sure they fix them. They do a good job during the week, and I am proud of all the hard work they do on the cars and maintaining them," Fontaine said. 

CHRIS FONTAINE WINS THE BRIGHTHOUSE CHALLENGE 100 LAP SUPER LATE MODEL RACE AT SHOWTIME SPEEDWAY ON SATURDAY, JUNE 20

Chris Fontaine drove the Glenden Enterprises #47 Super Late Model to his third win of 2015 at Showtime Speedway in the Brighthouse Challenge Series 100 on Saturday, June 20.

The win is the 2014 Showtime Speedway's Track Champion's third of 2015 at the track and his first of the year in the Brighthouse Challenge Series. Fontaine currently leads the 2015 point standings for Showtime Speedway and the Brighthouse Challenge Series.

In qualifying for the race, Fontaine tied with the #51 for the pole. He said,"I and the 51 ran the exact same time, but since he qualified before me, they let him have it."

Because of a 4-car inversion for the start of the race, Fontaine had to start in the fourth spot.

"I got around a couple of guys in the first couple of laps, and we got around Jeff Scofield about lap 20," Fontaine said, adding,"he backed off a little bit to save his tires, and then at the end he made a really hard run, but I was able to hold him off."

This coming Friday, July 3, Fontaine and the Glenden Enterprises Race team will be racing in the Brighthouse Challenge Series Clyde Hart Memorial 100 at New Smyrna Speedway.

"We will have a good race and try not to do anything terrible. We are going to try to get the car better. I don't know if we are going to win this one, but we will do our best," he said.

By the end of the second lap he was up to the third spot, and on lap 10 he moved up to the second spot.

 "The shock had way to much rebound, and on the starts I just couldn't get going. That was all we could do for that race," Fontaine said.

 

FONTAINE MOVES TO THE TOP OF THE BRIGHTHOUSE CHALLENGE SERIES POINTS WITH A SEVENTH PLACE FINISH AT NEW SMYRNA

Chris Fontaine drove the Glenden Enterprises #47 Super Late Model to a seventh place finish in the Brighthouse Challenge Series 100 race at New Smyna Speedway Saturday night.

He had qualified in the nineth spot to start the race.

"We missed the setup, and I was barely able to keep up," Fontaine said, adding,"I just kept on it and tried to stay out of the wrecks and get a finish so we can go back to Showtime, get our Brighthouse points and get a better finish."

The top ten finish was enough to move him to the top of the leaderboard in the 2015 Brighthouse Challenge series points.

Fontaine also leads the track points at Showtime Speedway in Pinellas Park, FL with two wins and one fifth place finish so far this year.

"ALLRIGHT!" Fontaine exclaimed upon hearing that he is at the top of both leaderboards.

He and the Glenden Enterprises race team are the defending 2014 Showtime Speedway Champions.

Their next race will be this coming Saturday, June 6 at Showtime Speedway.

"We are going to the track to win. We are going Friday to practice, and get ready for Saturday to get the pole and win the race," Fontaine said.

FONTAINE TO RACE AT NEW SMYRNA SPEEDWAY THIS SATURDAY, MAY 30

Chris Fontaine and the Glenden Enterprises #47 Super Late Model will race in the Brighthouse Challenge Series 100 lap race this coming Saturday at New Smyrna Speedway in New Smyrna, FL.

Since 2000, Fontaine has run in 27 Late Model and Super Late Model races at the track, and out of those has accumulated  15 top tens and three top five finishes.

"We are trying to find some more speed in the car. I haven't been dominant there in the past. We are going there to test Thursday and Friday, and see what we can find out; see if I can learn something myself," Fontaine said, adding," I am just trying to get out of there with a top five and a solid racecar to get to the next race in Pinellas Park."

That race will be at Showtime Speedway on June 6.

 

FONTAINE GETS 28TH AT HICKORY AFTER GETTING WRECKED

Chris Fontaine had a long weekend at Hickory Motor Speedway last weekend. He and the Glenden Enterprises #47 CARS Tour Super Late Model team were preparing for the third CARS Tour race of the 2015 season.

Fontaine was not satisfied with his car's performance in practice, so the team switched to their backup car to start the race on Saturday.

"We still couldn't get ahold of the track," Fontaine said, adding,"We never got the car handling the way we wanted it to."

After qualifying 28th to start the race, Fontaine was working his way up in the field when he and another car got together in turn two on lap 31.

Fontaine pitted the #47 under the caution to work on it, but eventually retired from the race on lap 39.

"The shock mount broke on the lower control arm, so we decided to pull it in at that point, because the car was broken and, basically, we were just going to be in the way," he said.

The next race for Fontaine and the Glenden Enterprises team is on May 30 at New Smyrna Speedway in New Smyrna, FL.

 

Friday wasn't a wasted day for Chris Fontaine, but it was certainly a long one. The No. 47 crew decided to completely...

In 2008, he got a top ten finish at Hickory in the ASASAT 100 lap race there.

In his first two CARS Tour races, Fontaine has one top ten finish at Rougemont, NC.

"We are going to try to figure out the tires a little more, and try to run up front," Fontaine said.

FONTAINE FINISHES FIFTH AT SHOWTIME SPEEDWAY ON MAY SECOND

Chris Fontaine and the Glenden Enterprises #47 Super Late Model race team took home a fifth place finish at Showtime Speedway on Saturday, May second.

Fontaine was the fastest car in qualifying, but had to start the 50-lap feature race in the fifth spot after an inversion.

"I got to second and was riding there, and then they had a restart, and they said I jumped the restart," Fontaine said. He was sent to the back of the 14-car field for the restart.

With only eleven laps left in the race, he got the #47 back up to the third spot.

"And then Jeff Scoffield ran me up the track, and his son hit me, and we ended up fifth," Fontaine said.

Next weekend, on Saturday May ninth, Fontaine and team will be running their third CARS Tour race at Hickory Motor Speedway in Hickory, NC.

"We are going to try to figure out the tires a little more, and try to run up front," he said.

FONTAINE GOING FOR THREE WINS IN A ROW THIS YEAR AT SHOWTIME SPEEDWAY IN PINELLAS PARK, FL ON SATURDAY, MAY SECOND

Chris Fontaine and the Glenden Enterprises #47 Super Late Model race team are going to try to get their third Showtime Speedway win in a row so far this year this Saturday, May second.

"We are going with the same setup we normally go with. We will tweak it a little bit here and there probably. There are a few changes I needed to make to the car to get it a little better. We will go there Friday and test, and see if we can get three wins in a row," Fontaine said.

Last year at the track, Fontaine won the first five races of the season, and accumulated seven wins, eight top fives and nine top tens.

 

 FONTAINE FINISHES 10TH IN HIS SECOND CARS TOUR RACE ON APRIL 18TH

Chris Fontaine got his best CARS Tour finish to date of tenth in last Saturday's race at Orange County Speedway in Rougemont, NC.

Fontaine also had his best qualifying run in the series to date of fifth. He started the race in the third spot after some cars were penalized and sent to the back.

He lead on the restart after a wreck on lap 2, but slid back in the field for much of the caution-filled race. "We misjudged the tire pressure and the car went to crap," he said.

On lap 125 he was in the 10th spot, and held the position to the finish.

"We just missed a few wrecks. And the car handled good when the tire pressure was low. That was basically what we had to learn. I think we have a better handle on it now and we will see if we can do better next time."

"It could have been better, but we figured out some stuff," Fontaine said of the race, adding, "We showed we had speed in qualifying. We just had to figure out what to do with the tires during the race."

"We didn't have it figured out until the end of the race, but I think we have a better idea of what to start with now, and we will go from there" he said of the new tires they use in the CARS Tour.

Of his top ten finish, Fontaine said, "I am to the point I think we could have done a lot better. We figured out the tires at the end of the race. We know what to do next time and we should have a lot better performance. We had speed in qualifying, and we just misjudged what to with the tires during the race. With the pitstop and experimenting during the race, I think we figured out what to start with for the next race."

The next race for Fontaine and the Glenden Enterprises #47 team will be the Super Late Model race at Showtime Speedway in Pinellas Park, FL on May second.

CHRIS FONTAINE WILL RUN HIS SECOND RACE IN THE CARS TOUR THIS SATURDAY IN ROUGEMONT, NC

Chris Fontaine and the Glenden Enterprises #47 Super Late Model team will be racing in the CARS Tour Orange Blossom 300 at Orange County Speedway in Rougemont, NC  this coming Saturday, April 18.

Qualifying and the race will be broadcast live on the internet beginning at 5:00 pm Eastern time. Click on the WATCH THIS RACE link on the carsracingtour.com site or click here to order https://racefeedx.com/broadcasts/44

Fontaine has raced at Orange County Speedway once before. In 2007, he qualified eighth for the ASA South race on the .375 mi. track, but ended 21st after getting caught up in an accident on lap 36 of the 125 lap event.

At the CARS Tour season opener last month in Kenly, NC, Fontaine qualified  15th and finished 19th.

"We are hoping to be competative. At this track, it looks like we have to run the middle and the top groove, so that will be a challenge for us," he said.

"We've got a little more experience on these tires, so hopefully, we can get back to the front. Our qualifying was our main issue last time (at Kenly). The tires hadn't come in, so we will try to address that, and try to be there at the end of the race," Fontaine said.

The CARS series uses American Racer tires, and Fontaine is used to series that use Hoosier tires.

 "We have talked to some of the other competitors, and now we have a little bit of knowledge about what the tires are going to do. And each time we race on them we get more information to be able to get better," he said.

FONTAINE GETS SECOND WIN IN A ROW AT SHOWTIME SPEEDWAY FOR 2015

Chris Fontaine got another Super Late Model win at Showtime Speedway in Pinellas Park, FL on Saturday, April 4.

He also won the season opener at the track on March seventh of this year.

Fontaine qualified the Glenden Enterprises #47 in the second spot to start the 50-lap race.

 "We had to start ninth because of an inversion," Fontaine said, adding,"I fought back and got into third. I got by the #32, and set my sights on Scoffield. In the middle of the race he was a little better than us, but we had a couple of late restarts, and I was able to get the advantage on the second one. I pulled ahead of him by a car length, and then we raced side-by-side to the checkered flag."

"It was a great race. Everybody drove pretty clean," Fontaine said, adding, "I want to thank all the guys for the hard work they do. We had some mechanical issues earlier in the afternoon, but we got them fixed, and everything held together."

He accumulated seven wins, eight top five's and nine top ten's there in 2014.

The next race planned for Chris Fontaine and the Glenden Enterprises #47 Super Late Model team will be the CARS Tour Orange Blossom 300 at Orange County Speedway in Rougemont, NC on April 18.

FONTAINE FINISHES 19TH IN INAUGURAL CARS TOUR EVENT

Chris Fontaine drove the Glenden Enterprises #47 Super Late Model to a 19th place finish after getting caught up in a wreck that flattened a tire on lap 76 in the CARS Super Late Model Tour inagural event at Souther National Motorsports Park in Kenly, NC on Saturday, March 28.

Fontaine qualified in the 15th spot to start the 150 lap event.

He got up to 12th before being caught up in a four car wreck in turns three and four that brought out a red flag.

 "I cut a tire and knocked the toe out, and a bunch of other damage," he said of what happened to the #47 as a result of the accident.

"All we could do was patch it up and change the tire," Fontaine said.

"It started out well. I thought we were going to do better in qualifying, but we've got to learn what the new tires are going to do. It is going to take some time to figure out the new tire situation and what these tracks are like. It will be our first time at most of these tracks so we will just have to go from there," he said of his first CARS series race.

The CARS series uses American Racer tires, and Fontaine is used to series that use Hoosier tires.

The next race for Fontaine and the Glenden Enterprises #47 Super Late Model team will be next Saturday, April 4, at Showtime Speedway in Pinellas Park, FL. He won the last race he ran there on March seventh of this year.

This is the first race of the season for the newly formed CARS Super Late Model Tour, and the first CARS Super Late Model Tour race for Fontaine. He has raced at Southern National Motorsports Park once before in 2008, getting a seventh place finish in the ASASAT event there.

"The guys and I have come a long way since 2008," Fontaine said, adding, "I expect we will be able to run fast, and run up front, and if things go right maybe get a win."

"This first race will give us some perspective, and let us see where we're at, and what we need to work on. I am sure we will be up front. I am looking forward to it, and getting to race with some different guys for a change," he said.

"We chose the series because we like the payout, and the tracks that they run, and they are a little bit longer races at 150 laps or more. So I am looking forward to that and having some endurance in the races so that there is not such a rush to the front. Sometimes it's good and sometimes it's not, we will just have to see how that goes. Take it one race at a time," he said.

FONTAINE GETS 13TH AFTER ACCIDENT AND FLAT TIRE ON LAP 62 AT DESOTO

Chris Fontaine set the fast time in qualifying for last Saturday's 75-lap Super Late Model race at Desoto Speedway, but started the Glenden Enterprises #47 in the fourth spot after an inversion.

Fontaine battled with Scofield and Dutilly until Scofield and Dutilly made contact on lap 25.

Fontaine took the lead on a restart on lap 47, but Joe Boyd passed him a lap later.

After an accident and a restart on lap 58, Fontaine and Boyd battled for the lead for three laps before getting together in turn one on lap 62.  Fontaine got a flat tire in the incident and had to retire the race.

"On the restart I got right behind him (Boyd) and got underneath him. We ran side by side for three laps.  I feel like he didn't give me enough room getting down into turn one and we both crashed. It took us out of the race," Fontaine said.

 

CHRIS FONTAINE TO RACE AT DESOTO SPEEDWAY THIS SATURDAY 3 14 2015

Chris Fontaine will drive the Glenden Enterprises #47 Super Late Model in this Saturday's race at Desoto Speedway in Bradenton, FL.

The last time he raced there in the Icebreaker on February 8 of this year, he got a second place finish.

 "We are trying to get a little faster. We are going to go down there Friday and test. We have got to pick it up a little bit," Fontaine said, adding, "We came up one spot short last time. I am going to try and get a win."

 

 

FONTAINE WINS SUPER LATE MODEL RACE AT SHOWTIME SPEEDWAY ON 3 7 2015

Chris Fontaine drove the Glenden Enterprises #47 to his first win of 2015 in the Showtime Speedway Super Late Model season opener Saturday night, March seventh.

It is Fontaine's nineth win at the track since December of 2013.

  "We started fourth, and it got a little rough there in the middle with the #32, we got tangled up pretty good, but we got through that" Fontaine said.

 "We passed the #82 on the inside for the lead, and kind of checked out from everybody," he said, adding,"With 10 laps to go we had a caution. I restarted on the outside and it took me a lap or two to get by the #82 and we took it from there."

"I want to thank everybody, Kevin and Joey for everything they did on the car, and we will try to do it again," he said. 

 FONTAINE TO RACE AT SHOWTIME SPEEDWAY IN PINELLAS PARK, FL THIS SATURDAY, MARCH 7 2015

Chris Fontaine will drive the Glenden Enterprises #47 Super Late Model in this Saturday's 2015 Super Late Model season opening race at Showtime Speedway in Pinellas Park, FL.

He won the 2014 Showtime Speedway Super Late Model track championship with seven wins, eight top five's and nine top ten finishes.

In 2013, he won one race and had two top five's out of the two races he ran at the track.

"We are setting the car up how we normally do," Fontaine said, adding,"we are always really fast there, so we will go with that."

"We are going to try a couple of things in practice, but if they don't work we will be right back how our normal setup is there, and get ready to try and get another checkered flag," he said. 

 Fontaine said he does not plan to try to repeat his 2014 track championship series run, because some of the race dates conflict with the CARS Super Late Model Tour series that he plans to run in this year.

AFTER CAREER BEST EIGHTH PLACE DAYTONA START CHRIS FONTAINE GETS CAUGHT UP IN LAP 49 WRECK AND ENDS THE RACE 25TH

Chris Fontaine qualified the Glenden Enterprises #84 NCWTS Toyota in a career best eighth position to start the truck race at Daytona on Friday, February 20, but got caught up in a wreck on lap 50 that ended his race, relegating him to 25th place.

After starting eighth, Fontaine slid back to run in the middle of the field between positions 12 to 19th.

He narrowly avoided an accident on lap 14 by going high by the wall when the #82 truck spun in front of him, causing a 10-truck accident in turn one.

"Once we got that little bit of damage, we had to come in and start in the rear.  So we decided we were just going to ride in the back," Fontaine said.

After pitting under the caution, Fontaine restarted in the 20th spot on lap 20.

At the caution on lap 25, he was running in the 15th position. He restarted in 17th on lap 30, but moved up to 13th by lap 31 and 11th on lap 33.

Fontaine stayed at the back of the outside line for much of the race, but switched to the middle of the inside line on lap 35.

On lap 49, while running in the 11th spot, Fontaine was caught up in a 12-truck wreck in turn three.  When the #31 truck was hit from behind by the #13, he spun and shot up in front of Fontaine pushing the #84 straight up into the outside wall.

"The qualifying went well for us, but I still feel like it is a joke. Trucks crashed, and cars crashed in Nationwide and Cup qualifying. It did work out to our advantage, but I would still rather go back to the old way," Fontaine said.

"The race was going pretty good for us. The outside line wasn't able to keep going, so I fell back a little bit. Then I was able to make a run and come up a little, so I kind of shuffled back and forth," he said.

"I want to thank all the guys for all of their hard work. I appreciate everything they did preparing me a really fast truck. Hopefully, we can get that one back together, and take that same piece to Talledega and show'em what we got again," Fontaine said.

FONTAINE AND TEAM READY FOR THEIR FIFTH DAYTONA TRUCK RACE ON FRIDAY

Chris Fontaine and the Glenden Enterprises #84 NCWTS race team are ready for their fifth truck race at Daytona International Speedway this Friday night, February 20 at 7:30 pm.The NextEra Energy Reasources 250 will be televised live on FOX Sports 1.

In the past four races at Daytona, Fontaine has gotten caught up in accidents twice, and finished the race running twice. In 2012, he got his first NCWTS career top ten finish of seventh at the track, and last year he finished 19th.

His average starting position is 21.75 and his average finish position is 19.75. Fontaine has a running finish average of 13th.

"I expect we will have a competative truck, like we normally do," Fontaine said, adding," our main thing is going to have to be just get in the race and avoid the big wrecks."

"NASCAR has a ridiculous qualifying procedure, and we have to figure out a plan to get through it without wrecking, and get into the race," he said, adding,"I think there are 35 trucks for 32 spots, so we have a little work cut out for us there."

"Once we get in the race, we are going to try to get to the front and lead a lap, and make sure it is the last one when we are out front.  So, that will be our goal, to put the #84 up front," Fontaine said.

"I want to thank all of the guys at the shop for all the hard work that they have put in, and, hopefully, they can get a good result out of it," he said.

"I am watching some past race videos, and looking at the positives and some things I can change, and going from there," Fontaine said of how he is preparing for the race.

When asked what he is looking out for in the race, he said,"Just try to look as far ahead as you can. Look for the front of the pack, and try to look for someone that looks uncomfortable and keep your eye on them. The easiest thing is to be out front, in the top. That's where everybody is going to take it easy, and not try to shuffle for position. So, try to stay up front. It is safer up front than it is at the back." 

 

FONTAINE FINISHES SECOND IN ICEBREAKER 100 AT DESOTO SPEEDWAY

Chris Fontaine drove the Glenden Enterprises #47 Super Late Model to a second place finish in the 2015 season opening Brighthouse Challenge Series Icebreaker 100 at Desoto Speedway on Sunday, February 8, 2015.

Fontaine had qualified third to start the race.

On the restart after a caution on lap 14, Fontaine got the #47 on the inside of second place for a lap, before he got spun in turn number two.

On the restart, Fontaine was right on the bumper of the #07 for several laps, and held off advances by the #5 on the inside.

After a caution on lap 35, Fontaine restarted in third and stayed there until he was spun from behind in turns three and four on lap 39.

On the restart he was in the third spot until the #5 got by him on the next lap, putting him in fourth.

Fontaine regained the third spot after the leader retired with mechanical problems on lap 73.

Two laps later, Fontaine got by the #5 on the inside on the backstretch to take the second spot. 

 (The runner-up finish was a good start of the season for Fontaine, who will run in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Daytona in two weeks.

"That was probably the cleanest Jeff and I have ever raced," Fontaine said. "It was fun but I wish we had a little more. None of us had anything for the 30 (Dutilly).")-SCOTT LOCKWOOD, DESOTO SPEEDWAY
