Fontaine on Racing at Charlotte: “I’m ready for Charlotte,” said Fontaine.  “We had an okay finish at Kansas.  Of course, we always want a little more, but we have some good notes from Kansas that we can apply to Charlotte and come off the truck strong.

“Charlotte is going to be a tough race though. It’s not a traditional mile-and-a-half track, but it has some great characteristics.

“We’ll have to do a lot of the same at Charlotte that we did at Kansas last weekend.  We practiced in the day, qualified in the later afternoon and raced at night.  The biggest obstacle we’ll face is just making sure our No. 45 ProMATIC Automation Chevrolet is just as strong at night – as we expect it to be during the day. It’s a challenge – but one we plan to conquer.”

Fontaine at Charlotte: Fontaine visits another track for the first time in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series this Friday; the 1.5-mile Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Recapping Kansas: Fontaine was happy with his truck early; maintaining solid track-position.  However, long green flag runs did not allow the team many opportunities to make adjustments as track conditions changed throughout the evening.  Fontaine would cross the finish line in 17th.

“I’m bummed that we didn’t have the finish we were looking for with our No. 45 ProMATIC Automation Chevrolet,” said Fontaine.  “We made some gains during the race – so we’ll take that as a positive and move on to Charlotte.

“Our truck was pretty good to start out with – but as the race went on, it just got loose, and I felt like we chased that all night. We’ll take the finish in stride though, keep working hard and try to be better the next time out.
