Keeping his team busy this past season racing at Delaware Speedway and as part of the Qwick Wick Super Stock Series, Trevor Collver was able to put together a year of solid results.
“We had a challenging season,” Collver told SHORT TRACK MUSINGS. “We fought to find consistency in our car and set ups for majority of the season. We overcame a lot and are very proud to come out with the results we did.”
Battling on the Qwick Wick tour, he placed fourth in the year-end standings with four top-10’s, highlighted by a second in the Canada Day 50 at Delaware Speedway. He also ran the full schedule at the half-mile oval, finishing third in the home track standings with five top-five’s and eight top-10’s. The schedule allotted him to host Pack The Track: Trevor Collver Fan Night at Delaware Speedway, which turned into his favourite moment of the 2022 campaign.
“We brought about 600 fans to the racetrack for our big night,” he reflected. “Pretty incredible to see how many people support our program. We are forever grateful.”
The 2023 schedule will be very similar for Collver, as he will return to both the Qwick Wick tour and Delaware Speedway in saying, “the competition in both classes is second to none but the goal is to win both.” As he looks to accomplish those goals, he says he needs to be open to the resources available outside of his own team.
“I tried to do too much in house last year,” he admitted. “We need to lean on others and accept more help.”
For Collver, his start behind the wheel came 17 years ago, courtesy of his mother racing Micro Sprints at Grand Bend Speedway. He battled a lot of others who have made their own marks in the province including Ray Morneau, Shae Gemmell, and Nic Ramsay.
“I am an ultra competitive person that hates losing so it comes naturally,” he commented. “I also take a lot of pride in our program and want to make my sponsors, fans and family proud!”
It’s why his advice to those getting started is that despite going through ups and downs over the years, hard work pays off if you stick with it. He went on to add, “No one has success fall into their hands. You have to go get it!”
