MUSKOKA, ON- After a frustrating start to his 2014 return to the Lucas Oil TQ Can-Am Midgets, Daniel Bois will head to Flamboro Speedway on June 21st for Round 4 of the schedule, with hopes of turning his luck around in his London Recreational Racing No. 99.
“This has been a rougher start to the season than we had anticipated”, admits Bois, “we’ve got a great team and awesome equipment, but it seems as though we’ve been racing with a storm cloud over top of us these last 3 races”
After battling through setup issues at Flamboro in Round 1, Bois experienced mechanical difficulties at Sunset in Round 2 before mid-race contact at Peterborough in Round 3 knocked Bois from the top-5 early on.
“If it hasn’t been one thing, it’s been another”, shrugs Bois, “my guys give me an awesome car every week, and we just have to keep digging. Mechanical breakdowns are going to happen, and so are on-track incidents. We can’t let this get us down. We just have to fight through it”
On June 21st, Bois will have a second chance at Flamboro, after driving to an 8th place finish in the season opener on May 10th.
“Flamboro is certainly one of the tougher tracks on the schedule, but that doesn’t mean I’m not excited to race there”, says Bois. “We didn’t have a great car the last time we were there, but we were still able to come with a top-10. That gives a tonne of confidence heading into Round 4”
“Mike Schmidt and London Recreational Racing are also based out of Flamboro, so we definitely want to give them a show on their home turf”, continues Bois. “Mike and his team have done so much for me this season, I can’t possibly thank them enough. The best way to let them know how much I appreciate them would be to park this thing in victory lane on Saturday night”
Daniel Bois’ 2014 program is supported by London Recreational, ProWraps, Bennett GM, Castrol Edge, Thermal Technology, MBRP, Auto Glym and Project Track Champion.
