AFTER LEADING 35 LAPS FONTAINE SPINS AND ENDS UP 13TH AT DESOTO SPEEDWAY SATURDAY, APRIL 12
Chris Fontaine drove the Glenden Enterprises #47 Super Late Model to a 13th place finish in the 75-lap race at Desoto Speedway on Saturday. He qualified fifth, but a 12 car inversion put him in ninth place to start the race.
"The car was better than that I thought. We started the race and I went to the outside and passed as many as I could," Fontaine said, adding,"I got up to fourth on a restart and passed two of them real quick and I got to the leader and passed him on the inside."
"We dominated the race from there on out until a caution came out with 13 laps to go," he said.
"Joe Boyd and I made contact going into turns three and four. He got the better of it and I spun out," Fontaine said.
Fontaine was forced to the rear of the field as a result.
"The car was super good. We won't have to change much to go back and be fast again. I want to thank all the guys for giving me the car they gave me," he said.
FONTAINE LOOKING FOR ANOTHER WIN AT DESOTO SPEEDWAY IN THIS COMING SATURDAY'S 75-LAP SUPER LATE MODEL RACE
Chris Fontaine and the Glenden Enterprises #47 Super Late Model race team will race in the Super Late Model 75 lap event at Desoto Speedway Saturday, April 12.
Fontaine has a 20th place and a second place finish at the track so far this year, but he is still looking for his first win at Desoto this year.
Last weekend Fontaine won his third Showtime Speedway race in a row at the Pinellas Park track.
"Kevin Ingram, my crewchief, has really done his research on the cars I have been driving. In these races they have been really good handling cars, and I have learned a lot in the past couple of months about what it takes to be fast, and I am looking forward to getting another win," Fontaine said.
"We have had really good cars at Desoto the past couple of times, but things didn't go exactly our way, so we just need a couple of things to fall in the right place and we can get another win," he said.
