No matter what track you visit, it seems that the Bone and Pure Stocks are always putting on a great show. It’s also a great division to watch new talent emerge as drivers get their start behind the wheel.
In keeping up with the discussion, here are some more competitors who have openly discussed their 2020 plans as of March 4, 2020.
Alex Cole is hoping for a smoother Bone Stock campaign this year at Full Throttle Motor Speedway.
“My thoughts going into the season are hopefully it’s a better season then last as it was full of issues with my car,” he told SHORT TRACK MUSINGS.
SKLD Motorsports’ Andrew Shilling is ready to be a fierce competitor as he chases the 2020 Bone Stock Champion honors at Sunset Speedway, “alongside his teammates who will also be fierce contenders and plan on being high in the point standings.” He says they’re chasing better results than last year, and “do whatever it takes for himself and his teammates.” to achieve these goals.
After spending 11 years out of racing, John Haines is ready to make his comeback behind the wheel of a Bone Stock season. Through his previous years of experience, he has gotten behind the wheel of thunder cars, mini stocks, and done Figure 8 races, though stepped away from the sport to raise a family.
“At this point, we aren’t sure about a full season or part time yet, but we’re excited to be back at the speedway as a family run program with the current build of a new ride for the 2020 season,” he commented. “My kids are excited and kept saying, ‘I wish you still had a racecar’. That’s when it was decided it’s time.
“With the full hands on from my nine-year-old, we are currently putting together a car with the cold nights and weekends not stopping his enthusiasm for getting it done. We don’t have any goals for the season; we are just purely excited to get back to sunset and see old friends and make new ones. A feature win would be a bonus.”
Reece Bourgeois is ready to get back behind the wheel at Flamboro Speedway, “after a very short season last year due to a big hit beginning of June that took me out till September for recovery and rebuilding my car.” With intentions to run the full campaign, she hopes seat time will see her gain speed and improve her skills on the track. Stay tuned to STM for a full interview with Bourgeois.
