@Sunset_Speedway • (March 31, 2016)- After a solid rookie campaign at Sunset Speedway, Jade Franklin is set to return to the Innisfil, Ontario oval in 2016, once again racing in the St. Onge Recreational Super Stock division.
“I am just hoping for a good year with no roll-overs,” he stated. “Gonna try to stay out of trouble.”
Franklin was impressive during his rookie campaign last year, finishing 11th in points with a heat win, two b-main wins, and a couple feature top-10s behind the wheel of the No. 31 Nitro Industrial Sales Super Stock. The year also had its shocker value as he would have a slow roll-over during one of his heats.
“I think it went pretty good for a rookie year,” he commented. “I mean, we got Rookie of the Year, 11th in points and a couple heat wins. It wasn’t bad.”
Going into this season, Franklin is hoping to crack the top-10 in points, as well as score a couple more heat wins and perhaps a feature victory. The teenager will have tough competition, though, as the slew of talent from last year is returning, along with some new faces.
It’s why the lessons learned from last season will be even more important to keep in mind this year. Franklin says of the things he learned, the biggest was being patient.
“Stay calm, and be patient,” he stated. “I’ve been told by a lot of guys that you need to stay patient and wait.”
