Last season, Taylor Holdaway had what could only be described as a dream season at Sunset Speedway, winning 12 races and scoring 21 top-fives en route to winning the Sauble Falls Tent and Trailer Park Limited Late Model Championship. On top of that, the success propelled him to finish third in the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Division I standings, becoming the first Canadian to do so.
The year didn’t start out smoothly as the first night didn’t go as planned, with the Holdaway Motorsports driver suffering a broken clutch in the first feature, resulting in not being able to run the second feature. There was no give-up seen, though, as he would come out swinging, posting fourth, fourth, second and third across the next four features. Then on June 19, it seemed the magic was found as Holdaway won the Garry Reynolds Memorial, before going on a tear in weekly competition, stringing off back-to-back wins with ease. As they say, the rest is history.
It is that magic that Holdaway hopes to have with him for the 2016 season, in hopes of capturing the crown once again.
“Anytime you win a championship, you want to make sure your program is ready for the next year,” he said. “Everyone is at their shop working hard on their equipment and we need to be equally as prepared to go out and compete for wins this year.”
Holdaway added that the main focus going into the year is to build on the success from last season, continuing to build on the consistency that they have.
“With the help from Craig, Chris and my dad during the off season, I feel like we will be well prepared for opening night at the end of April,” he continued.
On top of running the full schedule at Sunset Speedway, Holdaway and team have purchased a brand new pro late model and plan to debut it later this year, running select events.
