Auto Racing Spotlight: Lisbon's Richard Spaulding gaining ground in 2017

...For 43-year-old Spaulding, a self-employed roofing contractor by day, running near the front is starting to become a habit. In the first six points races, he's finished fifth or better on five occasions, with the month of May yielding a string of four consecutive top-five finishes.

He's on a roll, thanks to help from a few talented people and some solid funding.

“I have a good crew behind me, for one thing, so I haven't had to do as much of the work myself,” Spaulding said. “Good help is always a big plus. I also have the financial support this year that allowed me to buy some new parts for the car. I've always run old parts in the past, and those don't win races.”

Those new parts provide the confidence a driver needs to get the most out of his machine.
