From a best appearing contest to drivers discussing plans, social media is a buzz about the Mini Stock division through the off-season so far. That has shown in the Silly Season Portal at Short Track Musings with plans revealed for 14 drivers across the two editions.
Since then, the news has just joined continued to drop with drivers revealing their plans. So here are some more competitors who have openly discussed their 2019 plans as of February 11, 2019.
An interesting twist saw JNL Motorsports purchase the No. 2 Mustang from the Holmes team, only to turn around and put Dylan Holmes in the driver’s seat for the season. if you recall the first edition for the Bone Stocks, this is the team that will be entering a pair of entries in that division at Sunset Speedway with Jeff Norman and James Potentier behind the wheel.
Wendy Adams reached out to Short Track Musings to let us know that she will be back at Flamboro Speedway on a full-time basis in 2019.
“Over the winter time we are planning on doing some work to the car to hopefully compete in the top 10,” she said. “During our first season at Flamboro, we were able to continually make changes and reduce our times and at the end of season we’re quite pleased with the progress we made.”
After it was revealed that Chance Isherwood would be making his return to racing, Dave Middel was quick to inform Short Track Musings that he will be entering two more entries this year.
Morgan Robson Jr. has been keeping fans up-to-date with his progress through the off-season on a mini stock build, as he looks to get back behind the wheel this year.
After a successful Bone Stock campaign, Maltese Motorsports has shared photos of a mustang-build in progress for Connor Maltese to move up a class in 2019.
Jake Watson released his schedule for the 2019 season, which will see him primarily at Flamboro Speedway while attending some of the big invitiationals across the province.
We already shared that Dylan Sharpe will be moving up to Mini Stock, but you are going to want to attend the Motorama Custom Car and Motorsports Expo in March to see the scheme that he had chosen. It’ll be a nice throwback for long-time NASCAR fans.
After reaching victory lane on a couple occasions last year, Tyler Seaboyer is hoping to chase after the title at Sunset Speedway in 2019.
“I know that we have a championship-caliber team and championship-grade equipment and all we need to do is get some backing together to take another run at this points title,” smiles Seaboyer. “We don’t have a quarter of the budget that most of these other guys are working with – which means we just have to work a little harder than they do.”
“This is always an exciting time of year. We’re meeting with some of our return partners and doing all that we can to get in the room with some new ones, too. We’re determined to make an impact in this division next season. So, we’ll do whatever we have to do so that can happen.”
Meanwhile, Kaitlyn Wallace hopes to put the bad luck of 2018 behind her and snag her first career victory at Flamboro Speedway.
“We’re headed into this year just hoping that we have all the bugs worked out of the car,” notes the fifth-generation racer. “I appreciate how much I learned (in 2018) and how it taught me to be humble – but working through blown motors and big wrecks kept me from getting as much seat time as I was hoping to.”
“I know that there’s a lot more speed in our equipment than what we’ve been able to show so far. We haven’t even really scratched the surface of how good we can be – and that’s exciting to me.”
