Fontaine on Racing at Las Vegas: “I’m looking forward to Las Vegas. Atlanta was a fast and tough mile-and-a-half, but Las Vegas should be a little similar to the other mile-and-a-half tracks I’ve run in ARCA and at Chicagoland last year in a Truck.
“I’ve been told that you really need to get your truck to rotate through the corners to carry the speed on the straightaways. Our Niece Motorsports team has a great technical alliance with GMS Racing and I know that relationship should be a benefit for us this weekend.”
Fontaine at Las Vegas: Fontaine will visit another track for the first time this season this weekend at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Friday night’s race will mark the rookie of the year contender’s first start at the 1.5-mile track.
Recapping Atlanta: In his first start at Atlanta Motor Speedway, Fontaine qualified 22nd and finished 19th.
“My 45 team fought hard and we all gave it 110 percent every lap,” said Fontaine. “I want to thank Superior Essex for stepping on board and for everything they have done for us. I’m looking forward to improving at Vegas.”
