Chris Fontaine in the Advance/Discount Auto Parts #47 Late Model finished in 2nd place at Orlando Speedworld on Friday, August 15, despite the fact that Chris had a broken wrist from the race at New Symrna a week before.

What Chris had thought was a sprain he received when another car hit him, turned out to be a break.

Chris started the feature race in the second spot after taking 2nd in the heat race.

He was on the charge from the start of the 25 lap event, pressuring the leader for several laps. The Advance/Discount Auto Parts #47 and the leader quickly pulled away from the pack and started lapping it after seven laps.

On lap 10 a car spun through the infield bringing out the caution.

On the restart, it was a three car breakaway with Chris in the middle.

Occupied with keeping the #78 behind him, the leader was just too fast for Chris in the Advance/Discount Auto Parts #47 to catch by the end of the race.

The second-place finish is Chris' best for the 2003 season to date, and brings his record to 9 top 10 and 5 top 5 finishes out of 23 races.
