Fontaine on Racing at Talladega: “It seems forever since we’ve been racing,” said Fontaine.
“I’m looking forward to getting to do some superspeedway racing. My Niece Motorsports team has been working hard for the past month or so on our No. 45 ProMATIC Automation Chevrolet and I look forward to seeing what we can do during the race on Saturday afternoon.
“It’s a mental game for sure and I’ve been doing everything I can with pictures and video to help me get focused and prepared. The trucks can be a handful compared to an ARCA car, but I think that produces better racing for the competitors and the fans too.”
Fontaine at Talladega: Fontaine looks to make his first NASCAR Camping World Truck Series start at Talladega Superspeedway on Saturday.
Recapping Las Vegas: Fontaine and the No. 45 team earned a 14th-place finish at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
“We had to work hard for that top-15 finish,” said Fontaine.
“I think the heat threw a curveball at a lot of the teams and unfortunately we just struggled to get the grip we needed with our No. 45 ProMATIC Automation Chevrolet from practice to qualifying and even throughout the race.
“Despite our struggles, we never gave up. We kept working on it and kept making changes and eventually the truck came around and we were able to avoid the late race chaos to put ourselves in a good position at the end of the race.”
