MILTON, ON – After sitting through a hiatus from competition in 2018, second-generation standout Chad Corcoran will be back behind the wheel of a Pro Late Model on a weekly basis at Flamboro Speedway this coming season.
“It’s a huge weight off my mind to know that all of our hard work is going to pay off with a full season this Summer,” says Corcoran. “Sitting our last season was the absolute last thing I wanted to do – but I never want to show up with anything less than my best effort. We had to take a step backwards if we ever wanted to take another step forward.”
Corcoran will partner with his uncle – former Flamboro Pro Late Model regular Brent Wheller – in a return to the same Hamke chassis he has piloted at Flamboro since moving up from the Mini Stock division in 2016.
“I could never thank Brent and his Queensway Truck Centre business for stepping up and sponsoring us this season – because there’s no way we’d be standing here preparing for a full run at Flamboro if it weren’t for his support,” insists Corcoran.
“It’s getting tougher and tougher to keep a competitive car on track week after week, so I hope Brent knows how much I appreciate him. We’re going to come out and put together some runs he can be proud of this season – I can promise that.”
Refreshed and refocused after a season on the sidelines, Corcoran is sure not to mince words when asked his goals for the upcoming 2019 campaign.
“I want our team to be competitive every Saturday so we can be in position to win races – that’s our only goal,” says the Milton, ON native. “That’s all that matters to me now. We’re making up for lost time and we’re doing all that we can to show the people that believed in me that they’re support meant something.”
