Bacon Set for USAC Midget Week after Consecutive Sprint Car Top-Tens
Lonnie Wheatley, WINCHESTER, Ind. (June 16, 2020) – Brady Bacon is set for a busy slate of racing with this week’s USAC Indiana Midget Week that features six consecutive nights of racing throughout the Hoosier State beginning with Tuesday night’s card at Paragon Speedway.
It’s a spate of events that continues on at Gas City I-69 Speedway on Wednesday, Putnamville’s Lincoln Park Speedway on Thursday and Friday, Lawrenceburg Speedway on Saturday and then Kokomo Speedway on Sunday.
Bacon will be wheeling the Klatt Enterprises No. 4 Midget over the course of the week, the same team for which he teams with in the USAC Silver Crown series.
“It’s a good car, we can contend for some wins this week,” Bacon says.
Additionally, Bacon will take in the non-wing Sprint Car portion of the week on five of the six nights as well.
Bacon will be aboard the Longworth No. 410 entry at the Gas City, Lincoln Park and Kokomo cards while breaking out the original Hoffman Racing No. 69ot at Lawrenceburg.
Bacon enters the week after reeling off finishes of fourth, seventh and eighth in USAC Sprint Car action throughout Iowa, Missouri and Indiana over the past pair of weekends.
“We have had a super-fast car every time out,” Bacon says of the Hoffman Racing Fatheadz Eyewear No. 69 Sprint Car. “We just didn’t have things fall right to get back to victory lane, but we’re right there and close every night so more wins will come.”
Bacon opened the three-race USAC Sprint Car set by establishing the night’s fast time of 14.982 second at West Burlington, Iowa’s 34 Raceway on Friday, June 6, and then finishing out the night in fourth.
“We had a great car but then the rubber came in and there wasn’t much that could be done from that point,” Bacon recalls.
Moving on to Pevely, Missouri’s Federated Auto Parts I-55 Raceway, Bacon was again quickest among his qualifying group before finishing out the night in seventh place.
Then on Sunday night, Bacon advanced from tenth to claim eighth at Haubstadt, Indiana’s Tri-State Speedway.
“We were moving forward, then we got short slid and fell back to about 12th,” Bacon says. “We were able to work back up to eighth, we had a better car than we’ve had at Haubstadt in a while so we’re definitely going the right direction.”
With the USAC National Sprint Cars idle until June 26, the focus shifts to USAC Midgets this week along with a handful of Non-Wing Sprint Car tilts as well.
