February 21, 2012 – Final preparations are being made as Brady Bacon Racing #99 will hit the road the first weekend in March to compete at Canyon Speedway Park near Peoria, Arizona. The event marks the opener for the Lucas Oil ASCS National Series. The Broken Arrow, Oklahoma driver finished third in the series’ standings in 2011, and plans to climb the ladder two more spots this year as he competes for the title.

Brady knows it wouldn’t be possible with all the great partners he has. “I’d really like to thank our partners for making this possible,” he says. “We’ve been able to add a few this season. We’d like to welcome on Heath Clips Lawn Care, Eaton Industrial Coatings, Pattison Precision Products, All Star Performance and Schoenfeld Headers. Obviously, we have some great ones coming back like Fatheadz Eyewear, Oilfield Equipment and Manufacturing, Tel-Star Communications, PPM Titanium Products, Triple X Race Co., Infinity Shocks, Smiley’s Racing Products and others.”

Though he owned his team after the Spring ASCS Western Swing last year, this season, Brady is on his own. “Obviously, this is the first full year doing it on my own,” he says. “Last year, we started partnering with Tel-Star Communications and Mike and Megan (Eubanks). This year, we’d like to start like we ended last year (with a strong finish).”

This season’s ASCS schedule has expanded, and though there is a smaller purse, Brady sees the benefits. “There are more races on the ASCS schedule, which I’m really looking forward to,” he says. “I think it’s the right move to grow the series so we can get the purses built back up. That will keep us from having to go to regional races that pay less just so we can race.”

Brady has seen success in Arizona, but has never raced at Canyon Speedway Park. “I’ve never been to Canyon, but I’m sure (promoter) Kevin Montgomery will do a good job down there,” he says. “I’m glad we aren’t starting quite as early as we did last year. It gives us a chance to get things ready and be more prepared.”

Of course, Brady will find time to race elsewhere on his open weekends. “I’ll be mixing some other racing in,” he says. “We’ll be running some non-wing 410 shows, and we’ll be running with the World of Outlaws including the Knoxville Nationals again. We’re looking at running 80-90 times. I think we have a midget race at Cowtown coming up the week before we go to the Devil’s Bowl.”

After a pair of weekends in Arizona, the series will take the next weekend off before returning to Devil’s Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, Texas. “I’m looking forward to getting back to Devil’s Bowl again too. That’s a place we’ve run well at, and I’m glad they’ve added two more races there this year.”

Other than some new partners, the race team is status quo for 2012. Last season ended with a strong surge that saw a Knoxville Nationals Rookie of the Year Award and a surge to third in the final ASCS standings. “I’m looking forward to getting started,” says Brady. “Everything is pretty much the same as far as the car goes. We’d tried a lot of different things last year that didn’t necessarily work, especially early on, so we’re going to go back to what worked for us the last half of the year. We had a really good car the last few races. The key will be keeping the consistency. That eliminates issues, and hopefully, we can contend for the championship.”
