November 29, 2013- Without a doubt, the 2013 racing season did not get off to the start that the Fowl Mood Racing team had expected. Months of preparation and planning for the new season didn’t produce the expectations that they had been looking for. Team owner Stu Archer had purchased a Canadian Modified, and the plan was to race weekly at Brighton Speedway, as well as the Late Model program with Phil Potts.
After a few rough weeks early in the season for the both Stu and Phil, the Fowl Mood Racing team quickly came to the conclusion that they needed to go back to focusing on just the Late Model. Despite their early season frustrations, Potts remained in the top five in Brighton Speedway for most of the season. The team hit they stride in the summer, claiming their first win of the season on Saturday, July 27th, and returned to victory lane just a few weeks later with their win on Saturday, August 17th.
“The season we had didn’t meet our expectations, we really wanted to contend for the Brighton Speedway championship, but it just didn’t work out for us this year”, says Phil Potts. “We will be back next year looking for that championship”.
In addition to racing weekly at Brighton Speedway, Potts also finished in fifth place overall in the Go Nuclear Late Model Series North Division, which included a top ten finish in the annual Great Crate Race at Brighton Speedway, and a strong third place at the series opener at Can Am.
This coming season, the Fowl Mood Racing team has added an extra car to their arsenal and will race weekly at Can Am Motorsports Park in Lafargeville, New York as well as their hometown Brighton Speedway. The team also plans to follow the entire Go Nuclear Late Model Series schedule which included the 2014 season opening event at Mohawk International Raceway on April 26th and 27th.
