Will Sub for Bobby Santos in Champions for Charities Race
Stafford Springs, CT — After originally not having any plans to race this weekend, Erica Santos suddenly has a busy weekend ahead of her as she will pilot the Ed Breault #44 in this Saturday’s CARQUEST Super Saturday event as well as taking over for her brother Bobby in the 15-lap Wild Thing Kart Senior Outlaw CARQUEST Champions For Charities event. The Breault owned #44 is the same car that Santos drove to victory in the 2007 edition of CARQUEST Super Saturday to become the first and so far only female feature winner in NEMA history.
“Pete Zanardi had called me to see if I was going to run our family car in the NEMA race, and when I told him we weren’t going to run it, he told me that Ed [Breault] was looking for a driver,” said Santos. “I called Ed and we’re going to run. I’m pretty excited to be back in that car, it’s usually pretty good at Stafford.”
Santos will be pulling double duty as along with her NEMA Midget duties, she will take over her brother Bobby’s spot in the CARQUEST Champions For Charities 15-lap feature. Santos will lean on her quarter midget experience in the Senior Outlaw feature and she feels confident that she will be able to have a good run.
