The 2012 racing season has been the most successful season to date for Phil Potts and the Fowl Mood Racing team.
Although they fell just short of their goal of winning the Brighton Speedway Late Model championship, the season did have many bright spots, including four Brighton Speedway feature wins.
After getting an early start to the 2012 season at East Bay Speedway in Florida in early February that ended with a damaged racecar, the Fowl Mood Racing team returned home and had to rebuild. They switched to a Rocket chassis, and instantly took a liking to it once the season started locally. They opened the year at Brighton with a pair of top five finishes, and after a DNF, they ended the month of May with a win and backed that up just two weeks later with their second win of the season. The team celebrated victory on two more occasions in 2012, taking the checkered flag on July 28th and again on August 18th. The finished the season in second place in the overall track point standings.
In addition to racing weekly at Brighton, Fowl Mood Racing also followed the Go Nuclear Late Model Challenge Series. They battled hard for a top five finish in the overall standings, but a late race flat tire on the final night at Brockville put them in sixth place.
“We can look back on this season and be really proud of our accomplishments”, says driver Phil Potts. “We battled for the championship all year, we won some races, and really had a great time. I can’t wait to get the season started in 2013”.
Potts and the Fowl Mood Team hope to make it back to Florida in February to compete once again with the NeSmith Late Model Series. They had some struggles last year, but feel that their knowledge that they have gained with the new Rocket Chassis will help them if they decide to return.
Fowl Mood Racing would not be possible without the support of our sponsors. We would like to thank Hutchinson Fuels, Indewey Excavating, Vanderlaan Building Supplies, Bill’s Johns, Gord’s Water Service and Brighton Recycling Inc. for all their support throughout the 2012 season, and we look forward to another great season in 2013.
