LONDON, ON- With victories in the first two rounds of Grisdale Triple Crown competition, point leader Matt Pritiko will return to Flamboro Speedway on August 16th with hopes of sweeping the tournament and earning his first career Late Model championship.
“We’ve come so close, so many times to our first championship”, explains Pritiko, “I can’t possibly explain how badly I want to lock up the Triple Crown”
The former road course regular – a 3-time Delaware Speedway championship runner-up – has experienced a breakout year in 2014, and currently finds himself atop the Delaware weekly standings, the Delaware/Flamboro co-promoted APC Six Pack Series stanidngs as well as the Grsidale Triple Crown standings.
“This has, by far, been our best year in a Pro Late Model”, says Pritiko. “We worked hard on our program over the off-season, and it’s all working out the way we hoped it would. Feature wins are awesome, but I really want to start locking up some championships. I get my first chance to do that on Saturday”
Though a championship is clearly in his sightlines, Pritiko is quick to note that he’s not looking ahead of August 16th’s 75-lap event.
“I’m not taking this lightly, I know how quickly everything can change”, says the London, ON driver. “We’re looking to do exactly what we were able to in the first two rounds, and that’s put the best possible piece on the racetrack and win the feature. Flamboro has a solid division with a lot of competition; we’re not expecting a walk in the park”
