‘The Natural’ in Flamingo Motorsports Car for 2015
Timmy Solomito of Islip, NY will drive the No. 16 Modified for Eric Sanderson on the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour next season. The rumor mill has been churning since Ryan Preece announced his departure from Flamingo Motorsports on October 20, one day after winning the Sunoco World Series. One year removed from winning a championship, Preece is moving to Eddie Partridge’s No. 6 TS Haulers Motorsports car.
Solomito did not have anything set going into the season finale at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park. He expected to return to Anderson’s No. 75 car or at least run part time.
Flamingo Motorsports Crew Chief Sly Szaban asked Solomito’s car owner Wayne Anderson within days of the season finale about their plans for 2015. Szaban expressed interest in Solomito driving for Flamingo Motorsports. Anderson, the 1994 series champion, was supportive of the 22-year-old driver’s opportunity.
