HANOVER, ON – Although a great deal of his efforts throughout the 2019 season will be focused on his rookie venture into the wildly talented Super Stock landscape, Full Throttle Motor Speedway front runner Cory McAllister has confirmed that he will once again return to the Mini Stock division for one final championship push.
“Our team is absolutely excited about our new Super Stock and getting it up to speed on Saturdays at Flamboro (Speedway) – but it would definitely feel like unfinished business if we left the Mini Stock division without a championship,” says McAllister.
“We sat down as a group and figured out a way to make it work balancing our Super Stock commitments with (Full Throttle Motor Speedway’s) Mini Stock schedule,” adds the well-spoken Hanover, ON native. “This is our last chance to make a statement in the division. There’s nothing more our team would like than to walk away with a championship. That’s what we’re setting out to do.”
While McAllister will be able to balance his Super Stock and Mini Stock schedules with almost no interruptions, there will be a number of events in which he’ll employ a rotation of substitute drivers to aid in his championship push.
“We’ll have (former Full Throttle Motor Speedway Late Model champion) Tommy Robb and (former Full Throttle Motor Speedway Mini Stock winner) Billy Lovell behind the wheel for a few nights when I can’t be there,” explains McAllister.
“I’m looking forward to having a couple of experienced guys by my side to help our program hit that next level. They’ve turned a lot of laps at Full Throttle and I’m positive that they have the kind of insight that can make a good package even better.”
McAllister and his family-run outfit spent their off-season rebuilding their familiar No. 71 with hopes of giving themselves any possible advantage to secure their first career track championship.
“We haven’t missed any shop nights getting this car ready,” smiles McAllister. “It’s been completely rebuilt from bumper to bumper. This is the best this car has ever been. Now, it’s up to the driver to put it up front.”
“The (Mini Stock) division has gotten to the point where you can’t unload with anything but your best stuff if you want to be in the conversation for a win,” continues McAllister. “We’re there to run up front. Our goal is to win as many races as we can and to put ourselves in a position to walk out of 2019 as track champions.”
