A new chapter in the life and driving career of the 2016 “Super License” (scoring the most national points combined in the three USAC series) winner Brady Bacon will be written in 2017. Bacon will begin annually presenting the Brady Bacon Baton Award at the conclusion of the racing season at the Racers Reunion Banquet to an individual driver who he sees as a future star, a champion in the making, a driver headed to the Hall of Fame!
In 2017 Brady Bacon is scheduled to run over 100 races including World of Outlaw winged Sprint Cars, United States Auto Club (USAC) non-winged National Sprint Car, United States Auto Club (USAC) Silver Crown Cars and United States Auto Club (USAC) National Midgets. Bacon will also be competing in major events such as the Western World, the Perris Oval Nationals, the Knoxville Nationals, and the King’s Royal.
The two time USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car champion began racing when he was five years old driving quarter midgets then graduated to micro midgets with great success. By the time this third generation driver was 15 years old he was racing midgets and sprints outside his home state of Oklahoma. He then landed a full-time ride with Kasey Kahne’s USAC team running midgets and sprints on both pavement and dirt on the national circuit.
With 20 plus years of experience driving, setting up and working on his race cars Bacon is in a position to spot and identify upcoming talent. These future champions might be lined up beside him at a bullring in the Midwest or he may have followed the driver’s early accomplishments as he crisscrosses the globe chasing checkered flags.
