TINY, ON – Following a self-proclaimed ‘dream season’ in 2022 that saw his family-owned team capture the Limited Late Model championship in dominating fashion, second-generation star Dustyn Mombourquette is prepared for a new challenge this year.
“Last year was nothing short of a dream for our entire team,” says Mombourquette in reference to his incredible run of 5 wins in 7 points-paying events. “We were in the top-3 every night and I’ve never had that level of consistency ever in my career. You can’t ask for anything more than that”
Shortly after Mombourquette securing his first career Limited Late Model championship, it was announced that the division would not return for 2023. The class has, effectively, been folded into the Pro Late Model division, which will present a fresh challenge for Mombourquette’s family-operated outfit.
“Honestly, moving up to the Pro Late Model division isn’t something that was on our radar,” admits the well-spoken rising star. “But, when Sunset announced they were shuttering the Limited Late Models, we decided pretty quickly that we were going to take that step forward to transition into the premier division”
“We feel like we have a program that can be up front and contend with the best guys in the division right from the jump,” continues Mombourquette. “Dad and I have put a ton of work into this car over the Winter and I can promise you that this crew isn’t going to cut a single corner all year. We understand how hard we’re going to have to work to get where we need to be”
From a fan standpoint, Mombourquette anticipates the Pro Late Model division to be a fan-favourite, as the class returns to NASCAR Advance Auto Parts Weekly Series sanctioning for 2023.
“The NASCAR sanctioning coming back is going to add some excitement for the fans and everyone involved,” notes Mombourquette. “I can’t credit Sunset enough for that move. The division as a whole should be real stacked this year. I’m personally excited for the extended-distance nights and to run a lot of twin races this year because it’s something I’ve never done before. There just feels like there’s going to be alot of strategy involved and that’s something that really catches my interest.”
Mombourquette’s season is powered by RGC Sports, IHL, Paul’s Autobody, JN Roofing and Contracting, Georgian Waste Services, Murphys Auto Sales, Currie Heavy Towing, Bourque Transmission, Speedy Auto Machine, Fastenal, TM Branding, Mechanix Wear.
