Brad Emery drives the #2 Non Wing Sprint Class car.  His home track is Coles County Speedway.  He lives in Decatur, IL.

Team members helping Brad are:  Deb - wife of 40 years!

Brad started racing in 1960 in the Go Karts Class at Tower Hill, IL because his Dad raced.  His first win was in '62 in the Karts class at Moweaqua Speedway.  Career highlights include Track Championship in Single Class in '07. 

The thrill of racing for Brad is being able to still have fun after racing for over 50 years.  His most exciting racing moment was his first Feature win at Macon Speedway in '72 and his first Feature win at Coles County Speedway in '04.  He's most proud of being asked to do the prayer for Innvocation at the '08 Nationals.

Brad's racing hero is Mel Kenyon.

Of racing, Brad says, "Don't take it too seriously and have fun!".
