Fontaine Gets 9th in WPCV 125 at USA Speedway

Lakeland,FL-Chris Fontaine drove the GGR Roofing/BDH Construction/Fletcher Contracting #47 to a ninth place finish in the FASCAR Sunbelt Super Late Model Series WPCV 125 last Saturday night.

"The car was loose during qualifying," Crewchief Kevin Ingram said of Fontaine's 27th place qualifying effort in the 36 car field. During an early race caution, Fontaine pitted and the team made adjustments that helped the car's handling.

After pitting, Fontaine began moving up through the field until he caught up to the #74 Pennzoil car. The two battled for position through the rest of the race.

"We finished where we did through attrition, people getting wrecked and stuff" Ingram said, adding, "We passed about four cars."

At the end of the race there were only 15 cars still running out of 36 starters.

"We need to do more testing there, we just don't quite have the setup right for there," Kevin said.

The finish brings Fontaine's 2004 season record to 1 win and 3 top 10's out of 7 races.

This Saturday, May 8, Fontaine will be racing in race number 5 of the AACS Hoosier Cup series at Desoto Superspeedway. Fontaine's 2004 record in the Hoosier Cup series stands at 1 win and 2 top 10's out of 4 races.
