Fontaine on Racing at Kentucky: “The last three weeks we’ve had a really good truck and I think we’ll go to Kentucky this week and pick up right from where we left off at Chicagoland,” said Fontaine.
“When it comes to Kentucky Thursday night, I remember how bumpy that place is, and we just need to make sure we’re working to get our No. 45 ProMATIC Automation Chevrolet handling through the bumps and carrying the speed off the corners. If we can do that, it should be another strong night.”
Fontaine at Kentucky: Thursday night’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) race at Kentucky Speedway will mark Fontaine’s first in the series at the track.
Fontaine has one ARCA Racing Series start at Kentucky Speedway, a 10th-place finish which came last season.
Recapping Chicagoland: Fontaine and his No. 45 team battled extreme heat all day at Chicagoland Speedway to earn a solid 16th-place finish.
“It was another solid weekend for our No. 45 ProMATIC Automation Inc. | Superior Essex Chevrolet Silverado,” said Fontaine. “We made some steady gains during the race and that allowed us to have the truck handling the best near the end of the race.
“I was hoping that we could have another late race caution to allow us an opportunity to grab a couple more spots, but it never came.
“Still, I’m satisfied with our effort. We had some good speed and I can’t thank Cody (Efaw, crew chief) and my Niece Motorsports guys enough for their hard work in the extreme heat.”
