Fontaine Breaks Lakeland Bad Luck With 5th Place Finish
Chris Fontaine drove the Advance/Discount Auto Parts #47 to a fifth place finish in the FASCAR Sunbelt Super Late Model Series 125 at Lakeland's USA Speedway on Oct. 18. The finish breaks a three-year-old string of bad luck the team has had at the track.
"We qualified 10th. We were fast out of the trailer, fast all day in practice, and had our best qualifying run yet at Lakeland," Chris said.
"We hung in there through the race and stayed out of the wrecks," Chris said, adding,"we stayed in the lead pack as much as we could and when a bunch of cars got tangled up, we benefited and finished 5th. It was great to get through it. That in itself was an accomplishment for me and the team."
