    It’s been three weeks since the final checkered flag of the 2015 season waved at Black Rock Speedway for Trenton dirt Pro Late Model driver Charlie Sandercock.

    Sandercock had an impressive season where he earned 17 Pro Late Model wins during RUSH Weekly Series and Go Nuclear Late Model Series action. The success in RUSH Weekly Series action for the No.57 Bellevue Fabricating team at Can-Am Motorsports Park (Lafargeville, NY) and Brighton Speedway (Brighton, Ont.) earned Sandercock third in the RUSH Weekly Series National Points, with a $2500 bonus, the Bilstein Bandits shock program champion ($5000) and third in the Summer Chase points ($1000).

    Fourteen total RUSH Weekly series wins allowed Sandercock his third straight track championship at Brighton and second in a row at Can-Am, accomplishments Sandercock knows don’t come as an individual.

    “The last few years we’ve been running 50 or more races. It really takes your whole team to get in to a routine where everybody is on the same page so you’re getting consistent results,” said Sandercock of his team’s success in 2015.

    Defending the Go Nuclear Late Model Series title proved to be difficult for Sandercock, who battled wire-to-wire with Lee Gill for the championship. Gill eventually emerged on top in the final weekend of the season after a snow-out at Brockville Ontario Speedway and mechanical problem at Weedsport Speedway disabled Sandercock's comeback effort.

    “Finishing second to Lee Gill in the Go Nuclear Series is nothing to be ashamed of. We had a mechanical failure, the rear axle tube broke at Weedsport Speedway, so it could have been a lot closer, but we’re still happy with the season,” Sandercock explained. “There was added competition on the Go Nuclear tour this year, in addition to what was already there, which made it tough.”

    The season also saw Sandercock win his first career 360 Sprint Car race against the Southern Ontario Sprints at Brighton on September 5. The win has Sandercock’s team with thoughts of expanding the Sprint Car program for 2016.

    “We were talking about doing more and maybe running the SOS tour full time, but its 100 per cent up in the air, undecided,” Sandercock said of the No.57 Sprint Car program.

    The success is due largely in part to the supporters of the No.57 race team who stuck with the team throughout the entire year.

    “We have a well balanced racecar and a really good team supporting us. We had some good finishes and others where we could have been better, but we all had fun.”

    Sandercock plans to return to Brighton Speedway on Saturday nights for weekly Pro Late Model action in 2016. He will not be able to race at Can-Am Motorsports Park, which has switched to Saturdays as well. Sandercock hopes to retake the Go Nuclear Series crown with a full attack on the tour again next season. He also hopes to compete in select RUSH Touring Series events.

    Charlie Sandercock would like to thank all of his 2015 marketing partners and sponsors for their support throughout the season and looks forward to continued partnerships in 2016.
