Brady Bacon – New Combination Fast at Leffler!
(Bill W) October 26, 2015 – Brady Bacon made his first start in Frank Manafort’s #76M midget last Friday night a good one. In his first start with the team, he drove from 12th to finish sixth in the loaded $20,000 to win Jason Leffler Memorial feature at Wayne County Speedway in Wayne City, Illinois. The Broken Arrow, Oklahoma driver will take a weekend off before driving the Josh Ford #73 non-wing 360 in the $10,000 to win Richard Griffin Classic at Southern New Mexico Speedway in Las Cruces November 5-7.
Brady would draw the pole for his heat race on Friday. “That’s not an ideal place to be with 50 plus cars using passing points,” he says. “We had an issue with a bleeder. That made the car tight after a late caution. We lost a couple spots, and finished third.”
Behind the 8-ball in points, he would come back well in his Qualifier, where he would start sixth. “We were really good in the qualifier,” says Brady. “They were taking four and we got up to third. That was a good deal.”
The result saw Brady starting twelfth in the feature. “It was a pretty racy track, but with the caliber of cars, it was tough to gain ground,” he says. “You just had to keep picking away at it. We were able to get up to sixth. There was a time when I got hung up behind a lapped car and lost a few spots. It took a while to gain those back.”
Overall, he was very happy with the team’s performance. “We were fast all night, and had the fastest lap in the feature,” says Brady. “It was our first night out in the car, and they usually just race the Chili Bowl. It was a new car, new driver and new team. We were really good for the first night out. We needed a couple little things to go right, and we could have been up front.”
The team is managed by Brad Noffsinger, and they plan on racing one more night before January’s Chili Bowl. “We’re going to run it at Turkey Night (Thanksgiving at Perris Auto Speedway in California) and then at the Chili Bowl,” says Brady. “I’m really excited to run it again. It’s very encouraging to be fast right out of the box.”
