Flat Rock, MI—October 5, 2018: Will the youth movement add another member to the Flat Rock Speedway Late Model class soon? 2018 ARCA Factory Stock champion and 2-time Enduro winner Ethan Stadniczuk took his first laps in a Late Model this week, at the wheel of his Uncle Tadek Stadniczuk’s #24 machine. Ethan’s father, Dave, was also on hand at the track to work with his son.
“We wanted to give Ethan some seat time in my brother’s Late Model,” noted Dave. “In about 5 laps, he was on the gas and ran a very consistent set of lap times.”
The 17 year-old Bedford High School student was quite impressive, getting the #24 below 12 seconds as he finished up the testing session. “Ethan’s 2 seasons in the Enduro and Factory Stock class has given him great experience behind the wheel at Flat Rock,” added Dave.
And the plans for 2018? Dave smiled—“we’ll have to see.”
