Fontaine on Racing at Phoenix: “I’m really pumped about going to Phoenix and having a chance at a good finish,” said Fontaine. “I’ve been able to get our No. 45 ProMATIC Automation Chevrolet inside the top-10 on a superspeedway and a speedway, I’d like to add a smaller track to our total on Friday night.
“They’ve made a lot of changes to Phoenix over the last year, including putting the start-finish line in Turn 2 before the dog leg, which should make restarts and even the finish even more thrilling for the race fans.
“Hopefully, I’ll get up to speed pretty quick, follow some good trucks in practice and go from there. We have an opportunity to build on our Texas finish and deliver a strong effort that will carry our No. 45 ProMATIC team to Homestead the following week for the last race of the year.”
Fontaine at Phoenix: Friday night’s race at ISM Raceway will mark Fontaine’s first NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) start at the one-mile track.
Recapping Texas: In his second NCWTS start at Texas Motor Speedway, Fontaine battled from a starting position in the back of the pack, to finish the night in 19th.
“It was a solid night for our ProMATIC Automation team,” said Fontaine. “We struggled with speed during practice and qualifying but my guys never gave up and we kept working on the truck and it responded pretty well during the race.
“We could have used a late-race caution to make one more final tweak to the finish, but we’ll take the finish as a good rebound from June and look forward to closing out the year with two positive runs at Phoenix and Homestead.”
