For two years in a row, the Fowl Mood Racing team has dominated the Canada Day championship race at Brighton Speedway. Coming into the 2012 version of the race, Phil Potts and Fowl Mood Racing have been running well, and they had their sights set on a winning for a third straight year, and capitalizing on the double points night at the track.
Time trials set the tone early in the night, and just like they had hoped, Potts set fast time for the third year in a row. He also won his qualifying heat, and all the remained in their quest to go three in a row was the 50-lap feature. Potts drove a great race, exchanging the lead back in fourth through most of the race, and finished with a solid third place finish. Although the streak is over for the Canada Day race, Potts continued to climb towards the top of the point standings. He is currently second in track points, only 85 points out of first.
“The car is really working well for us, ”said Potts. “We didn’t get the win that we had hoped, but we still had a great finish, and had a great points night.”
This coming weekend, Potts will return to Mohawk International Raceway for the rescheduled Go Nuclear Late Model Challenge Series race. After heavy rain, and hail postponed the event from its original date a couple weeks earlier, Potts is looking forward to getting back to the Hogansburg, NY, track.
“The track up at Mohawk is awesome, and we are excited about getting back up there on Friday night,” said Potts. “Hopefully it will be a nice day on Friday, and we wont have to keep an eye on the weather all night.”
Potts will also be in action at Brighton on Saturday, looking to return to victory lane at his home track, and getting even closer to the point lead.
