KAWARTHA SPEEDWAY: Chris Morrow Looks for an Early Season Double

FRASERVILLE, ON - Any racecar driver’s favourite thing is a little something called momentum.  Running well on a consistent basis not only feels good, it pays off when the points are tallied at the end of the season.  After picking-up the opening night NAPA Auto Parts Late Model feature win at Kawartha Speedway Friday, June 4th, Chris Morrow hopes he’ll continue to hold a hot hand when action resumes Friday night.  He knows he’ll face some tough competition when the track hosts the first of a pair of 100 lap invitational events for their headline division.

“Winning on the opening night of the season at any track is fun,” said Morrow.  “Claiming a checkered flag at Kawartha is never easy.  There is just so much top-shelf competition in their field on a regular basis.  Last year, I had a great night in one of the 100 lappers but my car developed mechanical issues on a restart with about 20 laps to go and it all went away.  Obviously, I’m hoping for much better luck this time around – but with an invitational event, you can never tell who might show-up.”

Heading into the season’s second night of action, 2 other drivers are also looking to keep their young win streaks alive.  Kelly Wood would love to pick-up back-to-back checkered flags in the Hasiuk Trailer and Container Rentals Mini Stock division, while Norm Mayhew hopes to go 2-for-2 in the Better Carpet Thunder Car main event.  Kawartha Speedway will also have a special attraction at Friday night’s show.  Thunder Dome Racing, a NASCAR Sprint Cup themed racing game will be on hand and give fans a chance to try their skills with the remote-controlled racers.

Gates open Friday at 3:00, with rotating on track practice for all divisions getting underway at 5:00.  The night’s first green flag flies at 7:00.  For complete schedule details, see
