PORT ELGIN, ON – After three years spent pursuing his family-owned Pro Late Model endeavours, multi-time Ltd. Late Model champion Jason Parker will return to Sauble Speedway’s weekly Ltd. Late Model division looking to become back to back champion.
Parker will drive a Goetz-owned entry through the entirety of Sauble Speedway’s 2018 season as he looks to add a 6th career Ltd. Late Model title to his already impressive resume.
“This is something that Nick and I have talked about for a while and we finally put together a plan to make it a reality,” smiles Parker.
“I’ve known Nick since before he started racing, so it’s going to be great to spend time together all season as we try and get as much as we can out of this program. I don’t think we’ll have any trouble getting up to speed together right away.”
Parker’s interest is focusing entirely on weekly competition this season, when Sauble Speedway became Nascar point oriented and The Great lakes concrete series was created.
“Sauble’s been my hometrack for as long as I’ve been racing, so as soon as I saw this track’s get together to try and give it new life, I knew that I wanted to be involved,” explains ‘The New Age Punisher’.
“We won the championship at Sauble last season and, at first, we weren’t sure what our plans were for 2018. But, the more I spoke with [Mark] Dilley about his plans and the more Nick [Goetz] offered me the seat – it was impossible not to throw all of my concentration behind this Limited Late [Model] deal.”
In addition to regular season action at Sauble, the newly formed Goetz-Parker partnership will look to formulate a touring program that will include the upstart Great Lakes Concrete Series in addition to other large-scale invitationals throughout the 2018 season.
“It’s sounding like it might be a pretty busy summer for us – between the Sauble races, the Great Lakes Concrete Series and whatever else Nick has planned for us,” says Parker.
“There’s a chance we might be racing more this season than we have in a few years. I’m looking forward to getting back in the swing of focusing on one car, again. It’s going to be a lot of work, but I think the juice will be worth the squeeze because we have a real good chance at winning a lot of races.”
