BARRIE, ON – Second-generation racer Dustyn Momborquette will be back in full time competition with the Sunset Speedway Super Stock division in 2018. But, just because his family-run team plans to be in action every Saturday, don’t think that Momborquette is obsessing over a long points run in Sunset’s deepest division.
Instead, the teenager will concentrate on continuing his improvement in the wildly-talented class en route to what he hopes will be his first career division victory.
“Right now – our plan is to take the season just one day at a time,” explains Momborquette. “We were better and better with every race that we ran last season, so if we can keep up that pace there’s no telling where we can be by the end of the season. I think we’re ready to surprise a lot of people.”
Momborquette debuted in the division as a 12-year old with no prior driving experience, and worked diligently to become one of the most promising youngsters on the roster.
“It hasn’t been easy for a second – but I’m proud of how far we’ve come in the last four years,” says the Barrie, ON racer. “I just want to show everyone this season that we can race with the best guys in the division. It gets tougher and tougher every year, but I know that we can do it. That’s our goal.”
However, if the podium finishes begin to pile up, Momborquette would certainly not be opposed to adding his name to the Sunset Super Stock championship lineage.
“We’re focused on winning as many races as we can – but if we ended up in a run for a championship that would be amazing,” explains Momborquette. “Some of the best teams I’ve ever raced against have won Sunset Speedway championships and it would mean the world to me if I could do the same thing.”
“It’s not where our mind is at going into the season, but that could absolutely change. We just want to get the most out of our season. I want to win my first feature more than I could ever explain – but winning my first championship would be even more incredible.”
