May 28, 2013- After starting the 2013 season at Brighton Speedway with three consecutive fourth place finishes, Phil Potts and the Fowl Mood Racing Late Model team were anxious to get back to the track once again, looking for just a little more. Potts also had a special mid-week event at Can Am Motorsports Park on his scheduler earlier in the week, and Stu Archer returned to competition with his Canadian Modified at Brighton.
The first stop on the schedule last week was Chapman’s Can Am Motorsports Park for the first round in the Go Nuclear Late Model Challenge North Division. Potts started and finished fourth in his qualifying heat race, making the redraw for a top eight starting spot in the night’s main event. He went on to draw the third starting position, and lined up on the inside of row two to start the 25 lap Go Nuclear! Feature. After a great battle throughout the event, Potts crossed the finish line in the same position he started, earning a great third place finish to start the series.
“It was a good run for us tonight, and a huge improvement from when we were here earlier this season”, says driver Phil Potts. “We really want to battle for this Go Nuclear! North Division championship, and hopefully we can continue to run well in this series throughout the season”.
It was back home to Brighton Speedway on Saturday night with Phil Potts and the Fowl Mood Racing Late Model and team owner Stu Archer in the Canadian Modified both in action. Potts finished fourth in his qualifying heat race after starting seventh. In the main event, he started from the outside of row four in the eighth position and quickly making his way forward. He was inside the top five by lap three, and continued to make progress throughout the 25 lap race. At the checkered flag, Potts finish with a solid second place run, moving him to second in track points, just 15 points of the lead in the chase for the elusive Brighton Speedway Late Model track championship.
Meanwhile, Archer continues to improve with each week as he gets more comfortable in the Canadian Modified. He struggled in his qualifying heat race, and would have to start the main event from the 19th position. He steadily moved forward throughout the race, and crossed the finish line with his third top ten of the season with a solid ninth place result.
This coming week, Fowl Mood Racing will return to Brighton Speedway with both the Late Model and Canadian Modified. It is fan appreciation night at the track and Phil Potts, Stu Archer and all the Brighton Speedway racer’s will be available to sign autographs at intermission.
