For many race teams, a season like Matt Billings has had would be outstanding. A glance at their results from 2012 with top ten finishes virtually every week is something that most racers strive for. Billings is looking for more though, and is unsatisfied with running just in the top ten. He wants to be better than that, and that determination to be the best will eventually pay off.
This past week was relatively quiet for Billings, with just Brockville Speedway on Saturday night filling the team’s agenda. Mohawk Raceway, the team’s usual Friday night track had the weekend off for their local fair. It was a tough start to the night for Billings after a frustrating qualifying heat. Once he arrived back into the pit area, the team made some changes to the car, looking for more speed out of the car for the 30 lap feature. He started the race from deep in the field, rolling off the starting grid from the 17th position. The frustrations continued in the feature, as another car spun on lap six, collecting Billings. He was able to continue with minimal damage. He restarted the race from the tail of the field once again, and battled back, ending the night with a respectable eighth place finish.
“It was a tough night for us here. Actually it’s been a tough few weeks”, says Billings. “Hopefully we can finish out the year strong here at Brockville and at Mohawk and build some momentum going into the bigger races in the fall”.
This coming week, Billings will return to Mohawk International Raceway on Friday night, then off to Brockville Speedway on Saturday. He will also make a rare appearance at Cornwall Motor Speedway on Sunday night for the second round of the Canadian Nationals Series with a 100 lap main event.
