BRIGHTON, ON – The last few weeks at Brighton Speedway haven’t gone the way Phil Potts and the Fowl Mood Racing team had hoped. Although they did score their third win of the season just a few weeks ago, they have been hampered by some bad luck over the last month that included back to back DNFs, and a ninth place finish a week earlier with carburetor issues slowing them down most of the night.
The team returned to Brighton Speedway this past Saturday night despite intermittent raindrops early in the evening that threatened the night’s action. Phil started sixth in his qualifying heat race, and battled to third place. In the 30-lap main event, he rolled off the starting grid from fourth place, and fought within the top five the entire race. He crossed the finish line with a solid fifth place run.
“It has been a tough few weeks for us with some bad luck, so hopefully this will get us back on track and we can build some momentum over the final few weeks of the season,” said Potts. “We are in a battle here for the championship, and we have a few big races coming up, so we need to run well here every week from here on out.”
This coming week, Potts will be back in action at Brighton Speedway. It will be fan appreciation night, giving the local race fans a chance to meet their favorite driver during intermission. Potts will also be sporting some special decals on the car this weekend featuring the Canadian National Autism Foundation (CNAF). Phil will be donating all winning on Saturday night to the CNAF as well as all t-shirt sales.
Potts is currently second place in points at Brighton Speedway, and 190 points back of the leader with just a few events remaining in the season. The Fowl Mood Racing team has September 8 circled on their calendar, as Brighton Speedway hosts the Go Nuclear Late Model Challenge Series in conjunction with the Great Crate Race $5000 to win event at the track.
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, and we look forward to a very exciting 2012 season.
