Tegan Stanley Chases His Spot At Front Of Peterborough Speedway’s Bone Stock Field

Story By: JIM CLARKE / PETERBOROUGH SPEEDWAY – PETERBOROUGH, ONT – Every track in the sport has an entry-level division. A proving ground where racers sharpen their skills, build confidence and develop their talents.

The Battlefield Equipment Rental Bone Stock class at Peterborough Speedway has been home to a deep talent pool over the years and the 2022 season is no exception.

From getting his first exposure to the sport at the controls of his racing simulator, Tegan Stanley made his weekly stock car debut during the 2021 season at Peterborough Speedway, where he finished 6th in the final point standings and was named rookie of the year in the Bone Stock field. Even though his 2022 schedule didn’t get off to the start he was hoping for, Stanley says his positive attitude has made all the difference in the team’s performance.

“I’m lucky to have the opportunity to race with some really awesome people,” Tegan Stanley explained. “Being able to build a racecar with my Dad and a couple of our friends and then compete in that machine on a weekly basis makes it all worth it. I’m still learning how to make the car faster and more competitive. That’s a big part of what makes this sport so much fun.”

The 16-year-old student at Peterborough’s Adam Scott Collegiate – who works as a mover – says the friends you make at the track and the people you meet become your race family. He says he’s been blessed with having numerous veteran racers like his uncle Bill Jessup, Victor Vowles, Shawn Dunford and Geoff Greatrix show him the ropes and help him succeed. Being around people who support him and believe in what he’s doing is very exciting.

Tegan Stanley’s Bone Stock – carrying No. 23, his lucky number – is sponsored by Northumberland County Moving Company, Roofing MD, Dunford’s Detailing, Lakeside Mobile Tire and S & K Tackle, with pit crew help from Tanya Stanley, Chris Tubman, Dallas Keller, Matt Molloy, Amy Davey and Victor Vowles.

“I haven’t set any concrete goals for my career, but I think it would be fun to win a heat race or maybe even a feature event,” the driver admitted. “My car ‘Rhonda the Honda’ and I are still looking for the fast way around the track. We strive to do better every weekend and show our sponsors why they invested in what our team is doing.”
