Fontaine on Racing at Las Vegas: “I’ve been getting excited about going back to Las Vegas now for the past couple of weeks,” said Fontaine. “It was a track I really adapted to and I think a lot of that was the support from my Niece Motorsports team and the good No. 45 ProMATIC Automation Chevrolet truck they brought me.
“It was also a huge learning experience for me. I’m still learning a lot with these trucks. I learned a lot about the draft, handling and even saving fuel. With more experience and laps under my belt, I’m hoping that all that knowledge will put us in a position to have an even better race than we did in March.”
Fontaine at Las Vegas: Fontaine heads back to Las Vegas Motor Speedway for the second time this season. Earlier this year in just the third race of the 2018 season, Fontaine earned his career-best finish to date; a ninth-place result.
Recapping Canadian Tire Motorsport Park: Fontaine earned an 18th-place finish in his road course debut at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park.
“My first road course race ever was certainly a learning experience, but my Niece Motorsports team never gave up on me and we were able to bring home a solid finish with our No. 45 ProMATIC Automation | Superior Essex Chevrolet Silverado,” said Fontaine.
“I learned a lot about truck control, braking points, rhythm and so much more from practice to qualifying and then the race. That allowed us to have a trouble-free race and bring home a top-20 lead lap finish.
“All things considered, it was mission accomplished.”
