Second season driver Stuart Williams likes to go about his Sprintcar racing by flying under the radar and he has done exactly that, even with his rivals, by hitting the lead of the point standings in the Thunder through the Plains Country Sprintcar Series.
After four rounds of the Thunder through the Plains Series, the Badboy Mowers Motorsport team head the current point standings and they have gained command by virtue of posting a pair of impressive podium finishes in the last two rounds at Gilgandra Speedway and Morris Park Speedway tracks in Western NSW.
“I really like running the Thunder through the Plains Series as it gives me a chance to get more experience at new tracks and also meet new fans, as a lot of them have never seen Sprintcar racing before,” the 26-year-old said. “In the past two rounds of the series I have managed to finish in second place and I have been thrilled with those results as it has been the first time I have ever finished on the podium in a Sprintcar.”
Earlier this season Williams and his team gained a brand-new sponsor in Badboy Mowers and since then Williams’ has grown substantially in confidence.
“It’s amazing what a bit of sponsorship does for your confidence as I have managed to finish on the podium twice since Badboy Mowers have become involved with our team and it’s certainly great to have their support,” he enthused. “The guys from Badboy Mowers are only new to Sprintcar racing and they absolutely love it. Later in the season we are planning a few promotional exercises with Badboy Mowers incorporating both our car and the whole team as it’s all about giving our valued sponsors more bangs for their buck.”
The plan for the remainder of the 2008/09 season for last season’s NSW Sprintcar Association ‘Rookie of the Year’ is to maintain his lead in the Thunder through the Plains Series point standings with two rounds remaining at both Gunnedah Speedway (Saturday night, April 18) and Gilgandra Speedway (Saturday night, April 25) and then make the trip up to Lismore Speedway in Northern NSW to contest the annual Gold Cup on Saturday night, May 9.
Williams and his NSW # 46 Badboy Mowers supported Eagle are next going to be in action this Saturday night (March 28) for the final round of the Tyrepower Parramatta City Raceway (TPCR) Sprintcar Track Championship.
