SEBASTOPOL, CA 9-3-10 – At the start of the racing season he set his sights on traveling and not focusing on the weekly points championship like he had in season’s past. Now, Bradley Terrell of Sebastopol is just two weeks away from winning his first sprint car driving title in Petaluma Speedway’s All Pro Sprint Car Series. This Saturday night the “accidental champion” will look to secure his crown as the weekly season wraps up
“I’m trying not to put too much though into the actual points and numbers going into this,” said Terrell, who returns to Petaluma Speedway on September 18 for the finale. “Just like last week I’m jut planning on hitting my marks and getting a win at the end of the season would be really nice. I really have to thank Scotty for the use of his car to finish this championship, we wouldn’t even be in the running if he hadn’t stepped in when he did.”
Terrell is referring to Scott Dupont, owner of the American Auctioneering #3 sprint car that Terrell has been driving since the early weeks of the Petaluma Speedway All Pro season. Terrell lost the motor in his family owned #43 and limited resources have prevented his team from making the needed repairs. Just as Terrell was about to call it quits on his 2010 racing season, Dupont came to the rescue and offered his car for use for the season. It was then that a talented young driver was blessed with the continuation of what will be his most successful season of his career.
“Scotty is my savour this season for sure, I really thought we were done for the year,” said Terrell. “He’s basically just handed us his car for use during the year and been there for me. I really owe him and my family for all their hard work in this deal.”
Last Saturday night, Terrell qualified in the 8th position at Petaluma Speedway. In heat race action he finished in second place and in the feature event raced his way to fifth place to maintain his point lead entering this final night of competition. This Saturday Terrell will look to seal the track championship and hopefully will do so from victory lane.
Following Saturday’s event at Petaluma Speedway, the post season remains uncertain for Terrell. He has an entry logged into the high profile trophy cup at the Tulare Thunderbowl, however, it is unlikely the team will find the resources to repair the family owned #43. Terrell is seeking additional sponsorship or assistance to race in this upcoming event and possible the Fall Nationals in Chico. He too is interested in any driving opportunities that may be available in a competitive car.
Bradley Terrell wishes to thank Dupont and American Auctineering along with his marketing partners including Millhouse Glass, the Dry Creek Rancheria Band of Pomo Indians, Randy Hanson Auto Body and Paint. Vanlare Steering Repair, A1 Shower and Mirror Incorporated, Knockout Signs, Santa Rosa Moving & Storage, Altes Engineering, and 4 Wheel Parts.
