Brady Bacon – Top Fives Set up Dodge City!
(Bill W) August 29, 2012 – Brady Bacon registered a pair of top five finishes with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Series last Friday and Saturday nights. On Friday, he finished fifth on the High Banks of Salina (OK) Speedway, and on Saturday, he checkered with the same finish at the I-30 Speedway near Little Rock, Arkansas. Saturday and Sunday, the Broken Arrow, Oklahoma driver will tackle Dodge City Raceway Park in Kansas.
Brady would start on the pole in his heat at Salina. “It was a race close to home, so that is always good,” he says. “It is fast and high-banked…and they had a little rain, so it was heavy. It was kind of one-lane and hard to pass. The man on the outside got the jump with the banks, so I got in line in second after the start.”
The redraw saw Brady start outside of row four. “We were able to get up to fifth,” he says. “We were there pretty much the whole race. I had some power steering issues with the track being so banked and fast. We actually had a pretty good car, but we had some problems affecting us.”
This trip to Salina went better than the last. “We weren’t good there last time, so I was happy with fifth place,” says Brady. “We headed on over to Little Rock from there. We were worried about the weather a bit. It looked like it was going to rain, but luckily it didn’t.”
Brady is usually good at Little Rock, and he moved from seventh to second in his heat on Saturday. “We were high point car after the heat,” he says. “We passed some cars, and there were some crashes. We were pretty good.”
Again the redraw was not kind, and he started seventh. “We got up to fourth, and kind of stalled out,” says Brady. “(Tim) Crawley was able to get by us at the end of the race. The track was a little different than normal. It had rained, so it built a big cushion…bigger than normal.”
That proved to be the fastest way around the ¼-mile oval. “The bottom wasn’t quite as good as normal,” says Brady. “It took me a little more time than it should of to move up. Sometimes that’s my downfall, but I’ve won a lot of races on the bottom. It does make me a lot of money, but it bites me sometimes too.”
Brady will stop to help honor the late Donnie Ray Crawford by donating some items to a silent auction and catching some mini-sprint action before heading to Dodge City. “We’re going out to Port City Raceway on Thursday and Friday,” he says. “We’re going to watch the first couple nights of the Donnie Ray Crawford Memorial. Saturday morning we’ll head to Dodge City.”
