After a devastating crash on Night 2 of New Smyrna Speedway’s World Series, Andrew Gresel was unsure if his Sauble Falls Racing Team would be able to continue through the remaining 5 nights of competition.
Through a stroke of good fortune and an inordinate amount of work, Gresel’s team were able to piece their ride back together just in time to compete on Night 4 of the mini-season on February 17th. Click here for our interview with the Hepworth, ON native, where he explains just how tough it was to put his car back into race-ready condition.
Two-time Super Late Model champion Brandon Watson made his 2014 World Series debut on February 17th. The Stayner, ON driver ran well within the top-10 all evening long, until a late-race handling issue handed the team a disappointing 14th place finish. Watson was kind enough to chat with us and offer both his pre and post-race thoughts. Click here and here for the 1 on 1 interviews.
K&N East Series regular – and World Series Super Late Model competitor – Cameron Hayley offered his thoughts on his first ever trip to New Smyrna Speedway, the transition from the K&N West series to K&N East and the difference in equipment between Gene Price Motorsports and Turner-Scott.

Edmonton, AB driver Denver Foran (above, by Eric Uprichard) saw a marked improvement in his World Series performance on Night 4, qualifying in the 7th spot and racing within the top-10 all evening long.
Unfortunately, a last-corner incident with a fellow competitor saw Foran spun out of contention. Despite the disappointment, Foran was all smiles post-race and enthusiastic about the potential his team showed in their outing. Click here for the video and follow Denver on Twitter @DenverRacing.
