Brady Bacon – All Downstream at Creek County!

(Bill W) August 22, 2012 – Brady Bacon had things working to perfection in his Brady Bacon Racing #99 as he grabbed the win last Friday night at Creek County Speedway near Sapulpa, Oklahoma. It was the highlight of a week that also saw mechanical problems in Salina, Kansas and a sixth place finish in Lawton, Oklahoma. The Lucas Oil ASCS National Series has two events planned this weekend. They will head to the Salina (OK) High Banks on Friday before venturing to “Hammer Hill”, the I-30 Speedway near Little Rock, Arkansas.

The Broken Arrow, Oklahoma driver spent much of his youth honing his skills at Creek County. “I’ve had a lot of laps at Creek County, so I was really excited to go there,” he says. “We were really good all night. We started seventh in the heat, and would up second. The track is really small. You don’t get a lot of speed up. The wing doesn’t play as big a part, and that plays into my hands.”

Starting third in the feature, Brady took little time in getting to the front. “We were able to get to second,” he says. “It took a few laps to get by (leader Aaron) Reutzel, but once we did, we were able to run the top or the bottom. It was tricky in three and four, but it was where you had to be. Everyone was having trouble with that. I was really able to rotate the bottom in one and two better than anyone, and that helped me get through lapped traffic.”

One late caution put Kevin Swindell on Brady’s nerf bar to the finish. “We were able to hold off Kevin after that late restart,” he says. “You get to lapped traffic quick there. You just have to be careful. Hitting the bottom of one and two really helped.”

A fourth place run in his heat at Salina (KS) Speedway was not bad considering the company. “We were going to have a pretty good run at Salina,” says Brady. “It wasn’t the best heat race to run in. We had the top four in ASCS points in there. That was pretty tough.”

Brady started the feature inside row six, but would suffer a DNF. “We were actually moving up pretty well,” he says. “The motor started missing a little bit. It definitely got worse and worse. We were running about sixth when we dropped out. It was either a mag or ignition box going bad. The motor checked out o.k. afterwards.”

Saturday at Lawton Speedway, Brady won his heat from the pole. “There was a lot of water on the track…it was really heavy for the feature, and I may have run more stagger in the heat than I have all year long,” he says. “I actually ran a 90 inch tire.”

Brady would checker where he started, sixth. “That place is known for getting slick fast, and we tightened up just a little too much for the feature,” he admits. “We were way too tight on the cushion. Three or four laps in, I biked up and almost got upside down. I think I faded to about twelfth. We were able to get back up to sixth. We saved a decent night out of it, I guess.”
