Chris Fontaine, driving the Advance/Discount Auto Parts #47 started on the pole again, and lead the majority of the race again, but bad luck caught up to him again in last Saturday's AACS 125 at Desoto Superspeedway.
"We were fast out of the trailer, fast all day in practice, and then qualifying didn't go exactly the way we wanted to, but we qualified ninth, Chris said, continuing," they inverted the first five rows, so we got on the pole."
From lap one to lap 81 Chris was untouchable. Wayne Anderson, Dick Anderson and the rest of the field could not get within four car lengths of him.
"Then the car started getting loose,"Chris said, adding,"the right rear tire went flat, so we came in and fixed it."
Chris said he had no idea what he hit to cause the tire to go flat, but by that time there were a bunch of wrecked race cars in the field that may have dropped debris on the track.
When Chris got back in the race on lap 85 he was several laps down from the leaders, but continued to fight his way back all the way to the checkered flag on lap 125. He finished in 12th place out of 23 starters.
"We are going to keep doing what we are doing, stay just as fast, and that first win is just around the corner," Chris said.
The next race for Chris Fontaine and the Advance/Discount Auto Parts #47 Team is Saturday, Oct. 11 at Desoto Superspeedway. The AACS series will run a 250 lap race, the longest event of the year.
