The Late Model division had a major impact on the 2019 Silly Season Portal at Short Track Musings in it’s first edition, revealing the plans for several drivers. We learned what Robbie Sikes, Daniel Montanari, and Rick Spencer-Walt have on the card for the new season, with a preview at what’s in store for Andy Kamrath.
Since then, drivers have reached out to Short Track Musings with their plans for 2019. So here are some more competitors who have openly discussed their 2019 plans as of January 14, 2019.
2018 Great Lakes Concrete Series Super Stock Champion Kris Lawrence reached out to STM to let us know that he will be moving up a class this year. His team is currently putting marketing partners together to chase after the Rookie of the Year title in the Pro Late Model division at Delaware Speedway.
If they are able to get some extra sponsorship, he stated the possibility of trying his hand at some other Late Model shows, either at Sauble Speedway or a couple APC Series events.
RD Racing sent a press release to the website in December, stating that they have purchased a Pro Late Model for the 2019 campaign. After a successful foray in the OSCAAR Modified division, the father-son combination of Tyler and Rob Di Venanzo are taking a change of pace moving forward.
While stating they had yet to finalize their full 2019 schedule, RD Racing did state they were “currently planning to run the full program at Flamboro Speedway, three APC Series races and the second annual Canadian Short Track Nationals at Jukasa Speedway.”
The Motorama Custom Car and Motorsports Expo is always a great spot to learn about driver’s plans for 2019, and this year will be no different.
2018 Sauble Speedway Champion Rick Spencer-Walt will have his brand new Limited Late Model in the Sauble Speedway booth. As announced previously, he is focusing on a full-time campaign at Sunset Speedway, as well as a partial Pro Late Model schedule.
2018 NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Ontario Division I Provincial Champion Danny Benedict will have his car in the Sunset Speedway booth. He has openly stated his intentions on social media about returning to the Innisfil, Ontario oval in search of another title.
The APC Auto Parts United Late Models of Ontario Tour has been busy, openly posting across social media the drivers that have registered to compete in the series for 2019.
