Brady Bacon – Stormy Trip East!

(Bill W) June 8, 2015 – Having two of the five events canceled during the USAC “Eastern Storm” last week was disappointing. After a strong showing that included a win at Port Royal in 2014, the three events that did get in also were a little stormy for Brady Bacon and the Hoffman Racing #69 team. This week finds the Broken Arrow, Oklahoma driver aboard the Josh Ford Racing #73 during Indiana Midget Week.

After events were a wash at Grandview Speedway and Lincoln Speedway in Pennsylvania, the series moved to New Egypt Speedway in New Jersey on Thurssday. Brady timed in eighth quick. “Qualifying was probably the biggest shock of the week, because we’re usually really good at that,” he says. “At New Egypt, we didn’t qualify well.”

He would go from fifth to second in the heat and line up eighth in the feature. “We were pretty good in the heat,” says Brady. “The track got really dirty in the feature, and we just couldn’t get going. I think Robert (Ballou) was only one that passed anybody. We had to stay in line. I tried to move out a couple of times, but it was just powder (he would finish ninth).”

Brady was 13th quick at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday, putting him behind the 8-ball again. “At Port Royal, we had some sort of problem,” he says. “After qualifying, we changed all four bars and all four shocks. The problems went away for the most part. Hopefully, we can figure out exactly what the problem was.”

He would win his heat from outside row one, and the car was solid the rest of the night. “We were good in the heat,” says Brady. “We started thirteenth in the feature on a fast track. It’s pretty hard to gain much there, but we moved up to seventh. It’s disappointing to be fast and not be able to get to the front.”

The “Eastern Storm” ended Sunday night at Susquehanna Speedway in Newberrytown, Pennsylvania. “We’ve always struggled at Susquehanna for some reason,” says Brady. “We didn’t qualify well (13th). With the lighting there, and the dust, it was tough in the feature. It’s hard to run the top or try anything different when you can’t see (he would checker 12th).”

Brady knows there is a long season ahead, but the defending USAC sprint car champion had high hopes for last week. “We had a hard time getting things going,” he says. “It was disappointing having some lackluster performances. Hopefully, we can rally back and have a good (Indiana) Sprintweek. Last year, we had a good ‘Eastern Storm’ and a bad Sprintweek. Hopefully, we can flip-flop that this year.”

Indiana Midget Week starts Wednesday night at I-69 Speedway in Gas City, before moving to Lincoln Park Speedway in Putnamville Thursday, Bloomington Speedway Friday, Lawrenceburg Speedway Saturday and Kokomo Speedway Sunday.

Associate Marketing Partner of the Week – Proglide Coatings

When it comes to metal to metal contact and reducing friction, Proglide Coatings has a solution. Not only can we maximize the potential out of every part we coat, we can drastically increase the life of the part. By reducing friction, heat is also reduced. When heat is reduced, distortion and molecular changes in the part itself slows dramatically, naturally prolonging the life of the part. With that said, viscosity of lubricants can be decreased resulting in more free movement and less drag. As heat is reduced, the potential for the breakdown of oil is reduced. This lets your oil and lubricants perform the job that they were designed to do. Proglide also has characteristics that aid in the process of retaining oil at metal to metal contact points through a property called adhesion. Proglide holds oil to the part ensuring proper lubrication. In tight tolerance applications Proglide can fill the void of lack of lubrication where failure often occurs. Our coating adds no measurable tolerance to the part once coated therefor allowing us to coat even the tightest parts like pistons, rings, main bearings, rod bearing, cams, cranks, drive systems, etc. Maximize your parts and protect your investments with Proglide Metal Coating Technologies. Once you do you'll never feel the same about friction again. Visit Proglide Coatings online at!
