Chris Fontaine drove the Discount Auto Parts/Suntrust #46 to a 15th place finish at Louisville Speedway last week; his best finish to date in the NASCAR All Pro Series.

The race moves him into the 20th position in the 2001 NASCAR All Pro points.

Chris qualified in the 15th spot to start the race, but had to start in 26th because of technical difficulties.

"The track is a big circle,there is no straightaway. It was a tough track," Chris said.

He quickly moved up into the teens before pitting on lap 125. The team fueled the car, put new tires on and made adjustments.

"After the pit stop we were faster than the leaders until we caught up to traffic," Chris said,adding, "It feels great to be in the top 20. I want to thank my sponsors, Discount Auto Parts and SunTrust Banks, and the CJF Racing team for helping me get there."

The next race for the CJF Racing team is a 200-lap event at the .596 mile Nashville Speedway USA on Sept. 29.
