Brad started racing in 2003 in the Hobby
Stock class at Paris Motor Speedway because it's in his blood. He's been
racing since he was 16 years old. Drag Racing for 16 years then he
switched to Dirt Track racing. His first win was in '04 in the
Hobby Stock Class at Paris Motor Speedway. Career highlights
include '95 & '01 Paris Dragstrip Track Championship in Electronics, 17
wins Drag Racing, 28 wins on Circle Track including '04 Red River Valley
Shootout, which was also his first on Dirt Track.
The thrill of racing for Brad is the
thrill of racing and winning in something he built. His most
exciting racing moment was when he'd racing 1 week in I-Stock. Had
to start in last place in a full field of 24. 4 laps to go, he
took the lead and was walking away until the rear end broke. Even
though he didn't win it was exciting going to the lead in a class he had
never raced before. He's most proud of winning his very first race
ever against Tommy Isom in Drag Racing in '87.
Of racing, Brad says, "The part he
enjoys the most is the teamwork with your friends in the pits.
Makes for a good racing atmosphere!".
