MOUNT FOREST, ON – Super Stock sophomore Cory McAllister will have the opportunity to further establish himself as one of the division’s rising stars this Saturday as Flamboro Speedway plays host to the first event of the 2020 season for the wildly popular division – a $1200-to-win invitational that has gathered entries from pretty much every track in Ontario.
“We’re ready to get this car off the trailer and go to work,” says McAllister. “Any time we’ve had this car on track during testing this season I’ve been blown away by how good it feels. We’ve come a real long way with our Super Stock program in a short amount of time.”
McAllister broke into the Ontario short track scene as a complete unknown in the Mini Stock division, working quickly to become a weekly contender and Full Throttle Motor Speedway champion. Now, he has set his gaze of replicating that feat in the Super Stock division.
“It feels like the crew has really come together over the offseason and helped this team turn a corner,” explains the well-spoken rising star. “I believe, with everything in me, that we have a piece that can contend for the win every single night, no matter where we are.”
Although McAllister will surrender the Flamboro Speedway experience advantage to a number of other competitors on the entry list, he’s not allowing for his limited time spent at the Hamilton-area bullring to act as a crutch.
“I don’t have a whole lot of laps at Flamboro – but that just means I’m going to have to figure things out in a hurry,” said McAllister. “The car doesn’t know what track it’s at. It’s up to the driver to make it work.”
“Our goal for this team is to eventually develop a program that can to anywhere in Ontario and give guys headaches. It’s one thing to be a ‘one track jack’ and just race at one track for your entire career and dominate there. But, to go out on the road and win races all over, that’s a whole other skill set. That’s where I want to be.”
