– Taking advantage of an off weekend with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Series, Tony Bruce, Jr and his one8 Motorsports team elected to race the final night of the Nebraska Cup at the Eagle Raceway in Eagle, NE in front of their newest partner, Eagle Motorsports.
Starting sixth in his heat, TBJ got up on the wheel aboard his Hinchman/Pro Auto/Eagle Motorsports No.18 and scored a third place finish in his heat putting him in the feature event where he would line up in the fifth spot.
After making preparations to their 2012 Eagle Motorsports chassis, TBJ lined up on the very racy Eagle Raceway looking to capture his second career Nebraska Cup triumph, and the $5,000 that came with it.
As the race got underway, TBJ was not able to move forward as he would of liked as he got into entertaining battles with Danny Lasoski and Billy Alley. Working the top of the track, the trio race wheel to wheel as they all battled for the third spot.
With the checkered flag in the air, Lasoski was able to get the third spot, and it was TBJ hanging on to the fourth spot, keeping Alley in the fifth spot.
“It was a pretty good night for us,” Bruce said. “It was fun to get up here and hang out with the guys at the Eagle Motorsports shop, and it was nice to get a good finish in front of a bunch of them at the Eagle Raceway.”
Bruce would like to thank all of his sponsors, Hinchman Racewear, Pro Auto, Eagle Motorsports, The Oil Medics, Smileys, SWE, Maxwell Industries, FK Rod Ends, Butlerbuilt, Factory Kahne Shocks, Randy’s Racing Filters, DriversWebsites.com, Racinboys.com, Wilwood, Zemco Headers, Hoosier Tires, Gaerte Engines, Pro Powder Coating, Fuel Safe, Bell, Weld Wheels, and ISC Racer’s Tape for their support through the 2012 season.

SPONSOR SHOUT OUT: HINCHMAN RACEWEAR
Specializing in driver safety, Hinchman Racewear has been around since 1925 and still lead the industry in style, but more importantly lead the industry in safety. Hinchman changed the game in 1965 as they were the first suit to use Nomax exclusively. In 1999 the company led the push to used Carbon-X in their suits, and then in 2004 Hinch introduced “Comfort Tech”. This lining creates a 3-layer suit that is lighter, thinner, comfortable and more protective than most 2-layer suits.
“After meeting Nancy this winter I knew that Hinchman Racewear would be the perfect company to put my trust in to keep me safe,” explained Bruce. “Every time that I strap into my car this year I know that I’m going to be protected and that alone is worth .2 on the stopwatch!”
