BARRIE, ON – Super Stock rising star Dustyn Momborquette fashioned the best performance of his young career during Saturday’s Sunset Speedway season opener. Winning a qualifying heat and placing second in the evening’s 30-lap A Main, the up-and-comer provided a healthy reminder that he is most definitely a driver to keep an eye on in the talent-laden division.

“Honestly – Saturday night went better than I could ever have imagined,” Stat’s Momborquette with a smile. “I mean, we just wanted to come out and make sure that all the changes we made over the off-season had put us in the right direction. The result was amazing.”

Following his impressive 2018 debut, Momborquette and his family-operated team are already looking ahead to their second start of the season on May 12th.

“The goal now is just to get back to work and see what we can do to get even stronger,” explains the Barrie, ON native. “We’re always full of ideas. I’m happy to be in this position after Night 1 because it gives us the perfect base to work from. We’ll be back in the shop this week seeing what we can do to take another step forward.”

When asked about just how tough Sunset’s Super Stock class is, Momborquette insists that the roster remains one of the toughest in Ontario.

“From year to year this division never gets any easier,” opines the second-generation racer. “So, when you can run anywhere close to up front here, you know that you’ve earned it. Because nothing happens by accident here. We ran second because we work hard – so now we have to see how much harder we have to work to finish first.”
