OWEN SOUND, ON- Sauble Speedway front runner Jason Legge will be back in the Super Stock division this weekend, as the 2014 edition of the Sunset Speedway ‘Velocity 250’ shifts into high gear on September 27th and 28th.
“This event is always circled on my calendar”, smiled Legge. “There aren’t too many races that can match the atmosphere that the Velocity brings. Last year they ran out of room and had to move some of the haulers out to the parking lot. It’s a pretty incredible experience”
Legge will campaign the No. 54 Radio for Radiology Chevrolet that is normally piloted by fellow Sauble regular Paul Fritzsch.
“We’ve never been to Sunset with this chassis, so it’s going to be a learning experience right from the word ‘go'”, explained Legge. “This car is far superior to the car we brought down in 2013, so I think there’s a tonne of potential in front of us”
“I’m hoping to try something a little different, in terms of set-up”, continued Legge. “Sunset is a great two-groove racetrack. I think if we have a car that can make up some ground on the outside, we’ll be in good shape”
The Owen Sound, ON driver will find himself matched against a healthy field of some of the best the division has to offer, and knows that a strong run in qualifying will be pivotal to his success in the 50-lap A Main.
“There’s no question that there will be some good cars going home”, said Legge. “And we’re going to do our best not to be one of them. The heat races are really going to tell the story of the whole weekend. We’re looking to pick up as many heat points as we can, to keep out of the B Main”
With a schedule focused more on provincial touring set for 2015, Legge hopes that his trip to the ‘Velocity’ will give his team a leg-up on next season.
“We’ve done the weekly racing deal for the last couple seasons, and we’re all ready to shake things up a little”, explained Legge. “We’re going to be going out on the road a lot more in 2015, so putting down some laps at Sunset is incredibly important. I’m most definitely unloading this weekend with the intention of running up front, but we’re also treating this event as a pivotal testing session to see just how our new setup is going to hold up next season”
Jason Legge’s efforts are made possible thanks to Corwen Container Services, Grey Bruce Patio Enclosures, Tilly’s Cafe and Eatery, VR Collision and MW Fabrication.
