Ontario Super Late Model standout Brandon Watson enjoyed a head-turning 3rd place finish in New Smyrna Speedway’s first annual Bruce Gowland Memorial.
The third-generation star came from 11th on the grid, topping some of North America’s top short track talent, for his career best New Smyrna Super Late Model finish.
Watson previously announced that he will compete fulltime with the ARCA/CRA Super Series in 2014, and is anxious to head out on tour after such an impressive run at New Smyrna. Click here for Brandon’s post-race interview, and follow the team on Twitter @BrandonWatson15.
ACT Tour regular Alex Labbe made the long haul from St-Albert, QC to New Smyrna Speedway for the final 2 nights of racing at the World Series.
With help from Crew Chief Mario Gosselin, Labbe managed a 5th place finish in February 22nd’s Bruce Gowland Memorial. The finish marked Labbe’s career best behind the wheel of a Super Late Model.
We caught up with Labbe in the paddock post-race, and asked about his performance, his 2014 plans and what speedways he would like to compete at in the future. Click here for the video and follow Alex on Twitter @AlexLabbe36.
New Smyrna Speedway introduced the Bruce Gowland Memorial 100 this season, to close out the 2014 edition of the World Series mini-season.
The event, honoring longtime World Series veteran and OSCAAR regular Bruce Gowland, drew interest from some of the top Super Late Model teams in the Southeast, with 33 cars timing in.
In order to show an additional level of appreciation to the teams partaking in the memorial, several Canadian teams – led by the Hooker Bros. Racing squad – collected an additional monetary bonus to award to the driver running 18th on the 18th lap.
Gary Crooks Racing development driver Joey Mooch earned the $370 bonus, and chatted with us post-race about his 8 nights at the World Series and his aggressive plans for the 2014 season. Click here for the interview and follow Joey on Twitter @JoeyMoochRacing.
