Chris Fontaine drove the Advance/Discount Auto Parts #47 to a third place finish in the first leg of the three race series for the Florida Governor's Cup Triple Crown at Bronson Motor Speedway on Nov.1.
Chris had qualified in the nineth spot to start the race. The top three finish gives Chris 14 top 10's and 9 top 5's out of 33 races this year.
Chris ran a smooth, clean race from the start, and by the first caution on lap 23 was in eighth spot.
By the next caution on lap 38, Chris was up to sixth.
On lap 46 Chris narrowly avoided a car that slid down the track after getting together with another car. On the restart Chris had made it onto the leaderboard in fifth place.
Chris held the position through seven more cautions all the way to lap 110 when one of the leaders fell out, putting him in the number four spot.
The third place car, #14, and second place Jimmy Cope got together with two to go. The #14 went through the grass, and Chris passed him to take third on lap 123.
