Switch to Rocket Chassis for 2014; Becomes Rocket Dealer!
8, 2013) Brady Smith
Racing, who wrapped up their 2013 campaign a little over a month
ago with a strong top ten finish in the 'Lucas Oil Late Model
Knoxville Nationals' at the hallowed Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville,
Iowa, is already making plans for their 2014 season. Brady Smith
announced today that he will make the switch from Bloomquist Race
Cars to Rocket Chassis for the upcoming '14 racing season. Brady
will take delivery of the new Rocket cars next week and his business
- Brady Smith Race Cars (BSRC) - will become a dealer for the
popular Shinnston, West Virginia chassis builder.
"I am very excited to
announce our move to Rocket cars for next year," quoted Brady
in a telephone conversation earlier today. "We had a fair
amount of success with our Bloomquist cars over the past several
seasons, but we made the decision to sell them after Knoxville
and move forward with Rockets. The business potential of being
a Rocket dealer is definitely appealing because their cars work
so well in varied conditions at tracks across the country. Mark
(Richards) and Steve (Baker), as well as everyone at Rocket, have
been great to work with so far and I look forward to a great season
with them in 2014."
In addition to the switch
to Rocket Chassis for next year, Brady also revealed today that
his team will be adding a couple of Cornett Engines to their arsenal.
The Solon Springs, Wisconsin ace will continue to utilize powerplants
from Vic Hill Race Engines as well. Brady Smith Racing is also
seeking a couple of qualified crew members to add to the team
this off-season. If you are interested in a position with the
#2 team, please send your resume and qualifications to email@example.com.
