BRIGHTON, ONTARIO- December 7, 2013- It would be hard to find anyone who hasn't heard the casual expression 'close only counts in horseshoes...or hand grenades'. At the end of the 2013 season, Corey Earl discovered that close also counts in the world of short track stock car racing. After turning in a solid performance throughout the schedule, Earl - who works as Operations Manager at the family business, Hotch's Auto Parts - was tied for the Pro Late Model track championship with good friend - but bitter racing rival - Charlie Sandercock. The pair agreed to stage a head-to-head match race to determine the title. Although things didn't work out in his favour - partially due to a bent shock on the right front of his car - the 28 year old still sees it in a positive light.
