The Great Lakes Concrete Series will host six races for the Ltd. Late Model, Super Stock and Mini Stock divisions split evenly between Sauble and Sunset.
For Sauble Speedway Thunder Car racer Zac Sprung, the mini-series provides an immediate avenue to provincial acclaim by matching him with the best-of-the-best that the Thunder Car and Super Stock division has to offer.
“This series is huge for our division,” beams Sprung. “Sauble and Sunset have two of the best [Super Stock/Thunder Car] rosters in the province right now. Putting them against one another is going to be a show for the fans. I’m absolutely excited to be a part of this. It’s a massive opportunity to show people just what our team is capable of.”
Sprung established himself as a driver to keep an eye on at Sauble Speedway in 2017, particularly after registering a number of strong finishes towards the end of the season. Now, the rising star will be tasked with following up that momentum with an even stronger 2018.
“I know how important is it for our team to keep improving and keep showcasing how strong we are,” says the Owen Sound, ON racer. “We made up a lot of ground this year but we still have a long way to go. I’m excited to just keep racing against the best talent possible – because that’s the only way I’m ever going to get better. You never gain anything by running from competition.”
And should Sprung find a way to register a head-turning performance during the six-race Great Lakes Concrete Series, there’s no question wether or not the province will stand up and take notice.
“Right now, this series is all anyone is taking about going into ,” explains Sprung. “There’s a lot of hype around this deal. Which means there’s a lot of attention on the drivers that are racing it.”
“That’s music to my ears,” adds the rising star with a grin. “The pressure doesn’t bother me and the attention makes all the difference in the world. When these six race dates roll around – we’ll be ready for them.”
