HAGERSVILLE, ON- Following a 12th place finish in just his second career Ohsweken Speedway Sprint Car appearance, Rookie of the Year contender Lee Winger is motivated to return to action on May 29th with hopes of earning his first ever top-10 performance.
“I’ve never had so much fun in a race car, every time I get out of this thing I start counting the minutes until I’m back in it,” laughs Winger.
“Last Friday was huge for us. To come out and knock down a 12th place run in our second night was the biggest confidence boost we could have possibly asked for. I couldn’t be happier with the way the car’s performed through the first two nights at Ohsweken”
The Hagersville, ON driver will look to continue his improvement in Week 3, as he continues to work with Sprint Car veteran Mikey Kruchka.
“I’ve known Mikey for a long time, and bringing him on board this season was the best decision I could have made,” explains the former Thunder Stock standout.
“He continues to teach me everything from tire prep to throttle control. He’s had a phenomenal Sprint Car career in his own right – and picking his brain has helped me more than I could possibly explain”
“This is such a tough division to break into,” continues Winger. “The veterans here seem to be on their A-Game every single night. They’ve been doing this a long time. I’m just going to do my best to soak up as much knowledge as I can, and try and hang with these guys while keeping all four corners of our car as intact as possible”
