Stafford Springs, CT — With the 2017 season fast approaching, Kensington native Nicole Chambrello is looking to get things turned around after a difficult 2016 season. Chambrello enjoyed her best season behind the wheel of her #16 Superior Refinishing Chevrolet during the 2015 season with 4 top-5 and 16 top-10 finishes, including her one and only win. Last season was a bit of a rough patch for Chambrello as she recorded one top-5 finish and 10 top-10 finishes, but she is looking forward to getting back on the track and starting off with a clean slate.
“I’m really excited for this season,” said Chambrello. “I think everything is going to come together for us this year. Last year we had it a little rough but I think we’re going to have a great season. After getting our first win in 2015 we had so much confidence going into last season. I know we can get another win and we’re going to prove that we don’t get knocked down easily. It seemed like we were in the right place at the wrong time a lot last year and that can wear on your confidence as a driver. But I’m ready to put that all behind me and start off this season with a fresh new mindset.”
The 2016 season didn’t get off to the best of starts for Chambrello, as she recorded three finishes of 12th or worse in the first five races. She is looking to have a better start to her 2017 season and acknowledges that the bad results took a toll on her confidence as a driver.
