ustin Fontaine was first introduced to motorsports by chance when he attended the 2005 Bristol Motor Speedway NASCAR night race. From that point, Fontaine became an avid NASCAR fan, although it would be until 2008 till he began his own racing career.
In 2008, Fontaine made his motorsports debut in quarter midgets in Salisbury, NC. He raced alongside some of the young stars of the NASCAR today, such as Harrison Burton. After two part-time seasons, Fontaine made the transition to Minicup racecars, competing out at Newport Speedway.
In six starts, he won them all, which spurred the decision to make the leap to full body stock cars. Still competing at Newport, Fontaine began racing a 4-cylinder class, collecting two victories along the way.
Fontaine to took the next leap in his racing endeavor and transitioned to NASCAR and compete in the Late Model division at Kingsport (TN) Speedway in 2014. At age 19, he began his first full-time campaign in motorsports, where he claimed Rookie of the Year and finished in the Top 10 in points overall.
2015 was a banner year for Fontaine. Not only did he secure third in the overall championship standings, he earned his first win at the historic short track. Through 2016 and continuing to turn heads along the way, he was signed by Martin-McClure for a limited schedule in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series. In four races, he finished a career-best 13th at Dominion Speedway in Virginia.
Later in 2016, Fontaine was picked up by AM Racing to compete in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series at the historic Martinsville (VA) Speedway. After a solid debut, he will remain with AM Racing for 2017, where he’ll compete in a limited schedule in the ARCA Racing Series and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.
