HANOVER, ON – After having cut his teeth in the intensely competitive Full Throttle Motor Speedway Mini Stock division, Cory McAllister has put together a foray into Super Stock racing in 2019 – thanks in part to a newfound partnership with former division champion Shawn Chenoweth.
“Our plan is to start out the season at Flamboro (Speedway) and do what we can to get some seat time and cut the learning curve as fast as possible,” says McAllister. “This is a big move for us and it’s a lot to take on. I don’t want to rush through any part of the process.”
“We want to do things the right way and make sure that we’re learning everything we can about this car so that we can lay the groundwork to contend for wins for a long time,” continues the Hanover, ON racer. “This is something our team has wanted to do for a long time.”
McAllister has acquired a car formerly piloted by Chenoweth, and plans to lean heavily on the industry veteran to help bring his team up to speed in the talent-laden Super Stock division.
“Having Shawn and his guys in our corner is a confidence boost that I don’t think we could get from anything else,” explains McAllister. “They’re the group of guys that have sort’ve seen it all and done it all as far as Super Stock racing goes – so there isn’t really anyone else I could think of that I would want helping me figure this deal out.”
For an eager up-and-comer such as McAllister, the Super Stock landscape can be an intimidating place to hope to ply your trade. However, with proper planning and a willingness to learn, McAllister is confident in his team’s chances to eventually find their footing.
“As a driver this is the most focused I’ve ever been,” says McAllister. “I’m so excited to get on track and start learning. I know that this won’t be an overnight project, but I know that the sooner we start learning from our mistakes then the sooner we can start chasing down the results that we’re after.”
