It’s Bacon in Lucas Oil ASCS Eagle Nationals Prelim


Eagle, Nebraska (June 8, 2012) It seems that Brady Bacon’s season has

turned a corner as the Broken Arrow native captured his second Lucas

Oil American Sprint Car Series National Tour victory in a row.

Receiving a well-deserved Champagne shower from second finishing Brad

Loyet, the driver of the Fatheadz Eyewear 99, who started ninth,

utilized the inside groove for the first third of the nights feature

before bolting to the high line of Eagle Raceway to capture the lead

on the twelfth circuit.


“We were a little tight in turn one but were super good on the bottom

of three and four” commented Brady. “We turned things around at

Jetmore and hopefully we can keep the hot streak alive.”


Holding a straight-a-way advantage in the middle portion of the

night’s 30 lap feature event, Bacon sat well ahead of the battles from

second through sixth with second finishing Loyet holding off several

charges from Speedway Motors ASCS Midwest Region regular Trevor



“I just over thought it; I should have just stuck to the top. The lap

I went to the bottom he got around me” relayed Loyet during his

post-race interview. “We’re knocking on the door for that first win.

I’ve had great cars and good finishes but I like winning and I want it

bad; I want it real bad.”


Making his second Lucas Oil ASCS feature appearance, Trevor

Grossenbacher held onto the show position after nearly losing the spot

to Wayne Johnson in the later portion of the nights feature event.

Johnson would hold onto fourth at the checkered flag; just one spot

ahead of series rival Jason Johnson who picked up the Pitstopusa.com

Hard Charger of the Night after a crash in his heat relegated the MVT

41 into the B-Feature which put Johnson starting nineteenth in the

night’s feature event.


Seth Bergman came from eleventh to finish sixth with Danny Wood

holding onto seventh. Spending the first few laps’ battling for the

runner up spot before tagging the wall, the 45x of Johnny Herrera

charged from twentieth to finish eighth, getting around the hard

charging 53 of Jack Dover who finish ninth. Logan Forler, who also

raced into the feature via the B-Main, was able to race from

seventeenth to round out the top ten.
