Kris Hetu Collecting Wins at Carteret County Speedway
 OTHER 
Posted by:  RaceRap on May 24, 2018 at 8:25am

by Andy Marquis
SWANSBORO, NC – After two seasons of strong runs, but no wins, Wilmington driver Kris Hetu is finally scoring victories in the Mini Stock division at Carteret County Speedway, and he hopes to score another on Sunday night.

Hetu, 37, has competed in the Mini Stock division at Carteret County Speedway since 2015.   Throughout the first couple seasons of racing, Hetu recorded podium finishes, but never came away with the victory.   That changed in the season opener at Carteret County Speedway back in April when he was finally able to break through and win.

“I felt like Dale Earnhardt winning Daytona,” Hetu said.   “Carteret County Speedway was the one place I’ve been trying to win at since it opened and either I get beat, or like April last year, run into a car while leading and total my car.   It’s one of those places I’ve been competitive at and never had a win and it frustrated me.”

After picking up his first win, Hetu backed it up on May 12th with his second win of the season.   With wins behind him, he is now looking ahead to winning more races while also helping his son, 14-year-old Aiden Hetu, become competitive in Mini Stocks as well.

“I’m looking forward to the June Mini Stock Challenge race coming up there,” Hetu remarked.   “I feel like we’re going to be a big threat.   Really looking forward to the rest of the season at Carteret.   My son’s new car will be built so we’ll be representing with two cars.   I want to try to get as many wins as I can before my son starts beating me.”

This weekend, Hetu once again expects to run well, but he says there is stiff competition at Carteret County Speedway – most notably points leader Travis Provost from Swansboro and Winston-Salem’s Stephen Sanders.

“We always expect to run well,” Hetu explained.   “Travis, it’s not going to be long before he gets his win there.   He’s been close three races in a row, finished second I believe.   It wouldn’t surprise me to see Stephen Sanders come back again and he’s going to be a threat.   There are always fast cars that show up at Carteret.   We might have 7-10 cars but a majority of those cars, any one of them can win.”

Despite winning in the most recent Mini Stock race, Hetu is continuing to improve in hopes of being in peak performance mode when the Carolina Mini Stock Challenge competes at Carteret County Speedway on June 23rd alongside the CARS Response Energy Late Model Stock Tour.

“I feel like I can win anytime I show up, but that’s any racer,” Hetu commented.   “We’ve got a couple small things that we’re going to change with my car to try to get more long run consistency out of the car.   I’ve got to use the next race as a test session for the Carolina Mini Stock Challenge race.”

Hetu is supported by Autos 4 U Transport, Applied Power & Electric, Aaron’s Custom Exhaust and MB Long Construction.

The Mini Stocks will be joined by Limited Late Models, the Southern Ground Pounders, Street Stocks, U-CARs, Legends and Champ Karts on Sunday, May 27th in the third running of the Memorial Classic.   Tickets are available at the gate, $15 for adults, kids 10 and under get in free.
