COLDWATER, Ontario — After spending last season at the beach, Jordan Latimer will return to his home track, Sunset Speedway, for the 2019 race season. He will once again be competing in the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Division I Limited Late Models.
“This year we’re going out to get wins,” he commented. “We’re not worried about points or anything like that to start off. This will be the last year with this car so we are going to do what we can to get a couple wins before we send it off to a new series.”
Latimer knows returning back to Sunset Speedway won’t be easy, with the level of competition the Innisfil, Ontario track is expecting this season.
“We all know the competition is going to be great like it always is,” he said. “We have a couple guys with new cars for this season and a lot of teams have really stepped up there game over the off season so it’s sounding like a good year ahead.”
Latimer is coming off a season where he took a different approach, switching over to Sauble Speedway a couple weeks into the 2018 campaign. He wouldn’t be able to reach victory lane, but was able to have some top-five runs throughout the year.
“Last year, we mostly ran Sauble and came so close a number of times to getting a win up at the beach,” he commented. “So we’re hoping to keep the ball rolling into more great runs like we were having.”
Latimer’s last full-time season at Sunset Speedway in 2017 saw him surprise some people, scoring nine top-five’s and 17 top-10 finishes, including his first career feature victory.
“2017 was the last time we ran the full Sunset Speedway schedule and at the end of the year I felt like our team was on fire,” he commented. “We showed up and placed in the top-three the last month of season and we didn’t really get the new updates we did sorted out in the short time we were at Sunset last year. So we are hoping to get stuff rolling quick in the start of the season.”
