Bacon Sets Sail for Knoxville 360 Nationals & USAC Silver Crown this Weekend

Lonnie Wheatley, WINCHESTER, Ind. (August 6, 2020) – Variety continues to be the spice of life for Brady Bacon.

Coming off the heels of a strong USAC Indiana Sprint Week, Bacon and the Fatheadz Hoffman Racing No. 69 Sprint Car are set to take in this weekend’s Knoxville 360 Nationals.

Returning to the track where he claimed the $20,000 Corn Belt Nationals payday just weeks ago, “The Macho Man” is set for Thursday night’s qualifying events before taking in Saturday’s finale.

Then, Bacon will make his way east to take in Sunday’s USAC Silver Crown “Bill Holland Classic” at Selinsgrove Speedway aboard the Klatt Enterprises No. 6.

Bacon makes his first winged 360-ci Sprint Car start of the year after narrowly missing out on a second Indiana Sprint Week title.

Bacon opened the week in strong fashion with a pair of podium finishes in the opening three-race stint of the week with finishes of second at Kokomo Speedway on July 24 and then third at Lawrenceburg Speedway the next night.

After a sixth-place finish at Terre Haute Speedway last Wednesday and then a series of weather-induced postponements and cancelations, Bacon went into Sunday’s night’s final feature at Haubstadt’s Tri-State Speedway with the title within his reaches only to suffer mechanical misfortune in the early going.

Bacon still has a third USAC Sprint Car title on the radar, sitting fourth in points and less than 100 markers out of the lead.

For this week though, Bacon shifts his focus to the half-mile ovals with a return to Knoxville and then the first Silver Crown outing of the year at Selinsgrove.
