May 14, 2013- Despite the early morning rain and the unseasonably cool temperatures, Luke Stewart and his race team started the 2013 season at Brockville Speedway on Saturday night. This was the first race in their brand new Hig-Fab Chassis, and they were optimistic going into the night’s events.
In the eight lap qualifying heat race, Stewart started from the outside of the front row, and grabbed the lead on lap two and went on to win the preliminary event. He started on the front row again in the 30 lap feature race, but an early incident sent Luke to the rear of the field. Luke rebounded to post a 13th place finish, out of 27 cars that started the race, but the disappointment of having a car capable of much more still remains.
“The car worked really good, especially in the heat race”, says Stewart after the race. “Unfortunately we got caught up in a couple of incidents, and we had to come from the back. We will take it and move up, and hope that next week is better”.
This coming week, Stewart will be at Mohawk International Raceway on Friday night for their 2013 season opener, and will return to Brockville Speedway on Saturday night for round two of the season.
Luke would like to thank all of his sponsors for their generosity as we enter the 2013 racing season. They include Fort Glass, M.A. Barr Service Station Maintenance, RW Electric, McCoy Bus Tours, Penny Blake of Remax Realty Kingston, Southeastern Telecommunication Services, Number One Speed Equipment, Stewart Speed Supplies and Finish Line Web Design.
