Bacon-Marshall Motorsports Lifts Off in 2017!
(Bill W) December 6, 2016 – Broken Arrow, Oklahoma’s Brady Bacon is ready for a new venture in 2017. He is partnering with Richard Marshall of Priority Aviation to form Bacon/Marshall Motorsports. The team will be running a large winged sprint car schedule next season. The two-time USAC National Sprint Car champion will also be running the Frank Manafort Racing #76m midget and the Paul Martens #48 in USAC Silver Crown events in 2017.
Brady is hoping to expand on the success he had with his own wing car last season. “Richard Marshall of Priority Aviation is becoming a part of the team and we’ll create Bacon/Marshall Motorsports,” he says. “We’re going to run about fifty wing races. We’ll run with the World of Outlaws as much as we can, but we’ll be picking and choosing where we race.”
The biggest 410 events will be on the schedule. “We’re going to try and run all the major 410 events,” says Brady. “We’ll be at the Knoxville Nationals, the King’s Royal and the Williams Grove National Open. We’ll try to hit all the big races.”
Brady scored five top tens with the World of Outlaws last year, including a second place finish at Tri-State Speedway near Haubstadt, Indiana. He also finished second in the Badlands Motor Speedway Gold Cup event, and won with the MOWA series at Tri-City Speedway in Granite City, Illinois. “I felt this past year, running 30-35 races…we had the equipment that was fast enough to compete,” he says. “We just didn’t race enough to capitalize on that and stay sharp. I felt it was time to take the next step. I felt we were competitive.”
Enter Richard Marshall and Priority Aviation. “We just need to race a little more and fortunately, Richard decided to get involved with that,” says Brady. “I think with our combined resources, we can put together one of the best teams in the country in the near future.”
Richard is just as excited. “Please don’t tell my wife I am starting another race team, she will kill me……Seriously though, Bryan Clauson introduced us to Brady and Xia Xianna a few years ago,” he says. “Jennifer and I always considered a friend of Bryan’s to be a friend of ours. We enjoyed getting to know Brady as a racer and a family man and quickly became fans. Since travelling the WoO circuit as a teenager with my Uncle’s team and my Cousin Bobby Marshall driving, I acquired a keen appreciation for how challenging it is to “boot-strap” a team and be competitive against the best in the business. As we all know, that is hugely magnified with today’s technology and race budgets. With that, Jennifer and I are proud to partner with Brady, and see another driver-owner get a chance to continue pursuing his dream”.
