Justin Fontaine to Race in the Kevin Whitaker Chevrolet 140

Abingdon, VA — As the 2016 NASCAR K&N Pro Series East schedule nears completion, MMR prepares for competition. The next scheduled event is the Kevin Whitaker Chevrolet 140, taking place at Greenville-Pickens Speedway in Greenville, SC on Labor Day, September 5th, 2016. Justin Fontaine will be piloting the No. 39 Promatic Automation Toyota Camry in his fourth and final scheduled race event with MMR this season under the direction of veteran crew chief Chris Carrier.

This season has brought many opportunities for Fontaine as he continues to hone his craft. Fontaine has competed in longer races, on larger tracks, and on different track surfaces, all of which are different than what he has seen in his racing career thus far. As MMR and Fontaine prepare for their first respective starts at Greenville-Pickens Speedway, all are certain that there will be new things to be learned as MMR’s first year of competition in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East approaches its conclusion.

Located in Greenville, SC, Greenville-Pickens Speedway is a half-mile, semi-banked asphalt oval. This track hosts national touring series each year including the Whelen All-American Touring Series in addition to the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East.

Hal Martin:

“This has been an exciting year to say the least. I’ve enjoyed seeing the progression Justin has made. It’s tough moving up in series and having to learn a new car, a new team, and new tracks every week. Justin has handled these big tasks with positivity and a willingness to learn. I look forward to seeing what he can do at Greenville-Pickens.”

Justin Fontaine on Kevin Whitaker Chevrolet 140:

“I am excited to be back behind the wheel with MMR this weekend at Greenville-Pickens. We have continued to improve over the course of the year and I think the skills I’ve learned thus far with carry over very well at this track! The team has continued to do an excellent job getting the Promatic Toyota Camry ready each and every week, and I think we’re going to have a solid piece for this weekend!”
