Brady Bacon – Exorcising the Demons at Putnamville!

(Bill W) July 21, 2015 – Brady Bacon and the Hoffman Racing #69 team have had their bad nights at Lincoln Park Speedway in Putnamville, Indiana, but that all ended last Thursday night when they visited Victory Lane. USAC’s Indiana Sprintweek was up and down for the Broken Arrow, Oklahoma driver, and he would end up third in the final point standings. Tonight finds him at the Silver Cup at Lernerville Speedway near Sarver, Pennsylvania with the World of Outlaws. He will go from there to Illinois Speedweek, which will entail four nights starting Thursday.

Last Wednesday at the Terre Haute Action Track, Brady timed in a surprising 20th quick. “We’re always good there, and qualifying got us behind,” he says. “It definitely cost us. We started 18th in the feature, and we had a pretty good car. It’s just pretty tough to come from the back there.”

He would charge to a seventh place finish at the checkers on the half-mile. “It was as slick as it’s ever been since I’ve been going there,” says Brady. “It was tough to pass people, but we got up through there pretty decent and salvaged it after starting way back.”

The team bounced back Thursday at Putnamville, and Brady timed in 8th quick in the 47-car field. “We changed a lot of things on the car for Putnamville,” he says. “The race before, we hadn’t done too well, but we figured some things out.”

After winning his heat from fifth, he started outside row one and led every lap of the feature. “Things went our way, and we were able to win,” says Brady. “It was good to beat the place that had been beating us bad!”

USAC moved to Bloomington Speedway on Friday. Brady set a new track record in qualifying on the ¼-mile oval. “We were really fast in qualifying,” he says. “The track was obviously heavy. I was running fifth, trying to go for fourth in the heat and got off the track. At that point, I didn’t have much to lose. Fifth or last doesn’t matter. We ran second in the B, and it rained out after that.”

With a shot at the Sprintweek title, it was on to Tri-State Speedway near Haubstadt on Saturday for the finale. Confidence was high heading into a track that the team had tasted victory before. “We were decent in qualifying (8th) and the heat (3rd),” says Brady. “In the feature, it just kind of caught us by surprise. We just couldn’t get going. We had the same setup we had won there with. We’ll have to go back and look at it and make sure there wasn’t an issue causing that.”

The eleventh place finish meant Brady would finish third in Sprintweek points. “It’s been kind of a weird year,” he says. “Last year, the wins weren’t coming as much, but we were there in the top five every night. This year, we’ve won more, but haven’t got the top fives.”

As always, Indiana Sprintweek is unpredictable. “We struggled a bit at the places that we’ve been good at,” says Brady. “It was an odd week, where we won at a couple tracks (Lawrenceburg and Putnamville) we’ve struggled at in the past. The draw hurt us at a couple places too. I think we found a few things that will make us faster. Overall, it was a good Sprintweek. We gained a little momentum.”
