Texas Super Late Model driver Brandon Bendele will be making his NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series debut in the #24 MIGHTY Motorsports Chevrolet at Gateway International Raceway in Madison, IL on Saturday, April 30, at 7:00 p.m. Bendele has won several track championships in the NASCAR Late Model Division at San Antonio Speedway (SAS), which is one of the two NASCAR-sanctioned tracks in the state of Texas. He has also won two NASCAR Sunbelt regional titles, along with a championship in the United States Racing Association (USRA) Super Late Model Series. Local television reporters interviewed Bendele, and he shared his thoughts about the upcoming race. “I’m really pumped up about this awesome opportunity for someone from San Antonio to come up through the ranks of NASCAR,” stated Bendele. He continued, “This is the ‘big time’ and I’m going to give it my best shot.” Following the interviews, media representatives viewed video segments from Bendele’s recent USRA victory at San Antonio Speedway on April 2. Bendele signed autographs for several of his fans and expressed his appreciation. “My heart belongs to San Antonio, and it’s great to have so many people supporting me, especially with this new challenge,” said Bendele. Kevin Suberg, a 10-year-old terminal cancer patient and avid young racing fan, presented Bendele a “lucky penny” to take along with him for the race. Suberg has become an important member of the SAS and USRA racing families, and he’s a regular fan on Saturday nights.
