FONTAINE TAKES 7TH IN SUPER LATE MODEL RACE AT CITRUS COUNTY SPEEDWAY ON 4/27
Chris Fontaine driving the Glenden Enterprises #47 Super Late Model finished seventh in the 50 lap feature race at Citrus County Speedway last Saturday night.
Fontaine started second in the heat race. "After our first lap we kind of got into it with the #82 and ended up fourth, but I got the lead again by lap four, and won the heat race," Fontaine said.
After an inversion Fontaine started the feature race in third.
"I got around second place and got up beside the first place car and we got together, and it tore up the front of the car a little bit," Fontaine said.
"Around lap 35 Steve Dorer caught me and got outside of us and everybody just ran out of racing room. Me and Steve got together and it tore the whole side of the car off, so we just made it to the finish,"Fontaine said, adding,"We were running really, really well. We should have won, but the car got a little loose.
Chris Fontaine and the Glenden Enterprises #84 Toyota Tundra got collected in a multi-truck wreck on lap 53 of the NextEra Energy Resources 250 NCWTS race at Daytona International Speedway Friday night.
"We were just riding and it was really hard to pass. Everybody checked up and we all wrecked," Fontaine said.
He had qualified the #84 in the 22nd spot to start the race and was credited with a 34th place finish.
This was Fontaine's third NCWTS race at Daytona. In 2011, while running near the front, he got caught up in a late race wreck and ended up with 19th place. In 2012, he stayed out of harms way and finished with his first career top ten finish of seventh.
