October 28, 2014 – Brady Bacon and the Hoffman Racing #69 team are focused on the Perris Oval Nationals coming up November 7 and 8 at the Perris Auto Speedway in California. The team will take a fifty-one point lead over Bryan Clauson when they head west. Last weekend, the Broken Arrow, Oklahoma driver found himself pulling double duty at Atomic Speedway near Chillicothe, Ohio in non-wing and Renegade 410 winged sprint action.
Qualifications on the high banks of Atomic Speedway were held on Friday. Brady timed in ninth quick overall. “We went out in the sixth group,” he says. “It was pretty good. The car was bottoming out a little bit in the corners. If it wasn’t for that, I think we could have gotten a top three.”
Starting third in his heat, he would go on to take the checkers. “I felt really good in the heat race,” says Brady. “We had a problem in the Dash, though, and we weren’t able to finish.”
Brady would start tenth in Saturday’s main event. “I think maybe we got as far up as eighth at one point,” he says. “We faded back to tenth at the very end. We ran ninth most of the way, but Randy Hannagan got me at the end. It was just slick, with most guys going through the middle or bottom.”
Non-wing action started on Thursday. “We had a problem in qualifying and didn’t get a lap in,” says Brady. “We finished sixth in the heat after starting eighth.”
He would line up in row nine for Saturday’s feature. “We were three-wide racing, but no one was really going anywhere,” says Brady. “I think we were able to get up to eleventh or twelfth at one point, but then we fell back to around fourteenth. I pulled off at that point, because I wasn’t going anywhere. It was slick, slick, slick.”
Brady is looking forward to heading west in his quest for a USAC championship. “I’m excited to get back going with USAC,” he says. “Perris was pretty good to us last year. We finished in the top five both nights. We’ve got some momentum going here, and we just want to carry it into the final few races.”
After the race Oval Nationals, USAC will conclude their season at Canyon Speedway Park near Peoria, Arizona November 14 and 15.
