Scott Sundeen has won his 4th Xtramart Limited Sportsman championship and he has decided to retire. Well, sort of. Scott will be back to defend his title, but he is retiring his 11-year-old racecar that has carried him to all of his Thompson championships.
This car is a prized possession for Sundeen and before he rolls it into the garage for the last time, the car will make at least one more appearance at Mohegan Sun during the annual Thompson Speedway Awards Banquet. He will dust it off on occasion in 2016 and join the Northeast Street Stock Tour as his schedule allows, but the rigors of running weekly have passed for this #36.
Sundeen started his driving career in earnest in 2002 as a full-time competitor, but the magic wasn’t there. In 2004, he was introduced to chassis builder Bob Fill who he purchased the eventual championship car from. That decision proved to be the key ingredient to Sundeen’s success.
