Fontaine on Racing at Gateway: “I think it’s going to be a tough race, but if we can take that same strategy that we used at Iowa, I think we’re going to be OK,” said Fontaine.

“Any extra practice time is important, but it’s always better for me when it comes at a track that I’ve never been to. I’m no expert when it comes to Gateway, but I think you’re going to see the track change a lot between the first and final practice session on Friday.

“It’s going to be important for us to keep on pace with that. I feel like the second practice will be ideal to qualifying (on Saturday) and the final practice will be closer to race time, so we just need to make sure we find that balance between the two and then work during the stages to keep our truck on the lead lap and in contention.”

Fontaine at Gateway: Fontaine will make his first NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) start at Gateway Motorsports Park this Saturday night.

Recapping Iowa: After a couple of tough races, Fontaine and the No. 45 team rebounded nicely at Iowa Speedway, overcoming an accident in practice, to run inside the top-10 for much of the closing stages of the race. Fontaine crossed the finish line in 12th.

“I’m really proud of my Niece Motorsports team,” said Fontaine. “We had a setback in practice after I made a mistake and hit the wall. We never got discouraged though. We raced the race track and our truck was the best when it counted most.

“It felt really good to run in the top-10 for ProMATIC Automation and everyone who makes this possible and I’m looking forward to building on this finish at Gateway.”
