Last week we had a chance to catch up with 2013 Flamboro Speedway Late Model champion Shawn Chenoweth. The always colorful veteran took the time to wax poetic on the Flamboro-Delaware APC Challenge Series, explained his re-dedication to his father Bob’s Thunder Car program and offers his breakdown of Flamboro’s Thunder Car and Pro Late Model rosters.
