INDIANAPOLIS – Brady Bacon is on a roll right now, and he aims to continue his recent run of success during Mid-America Midget Week, July 9-14.
The NOS Energy Drink USAC National Midget Series will swing through Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska and Missouri for five races in a six-night span.
Bacon will compete in the first four events of the tour aboard the Central Motorsports No. 85, starting Tuesday at Red Dirt Raceway in Meeker, Okla. His run with the team will continue July 10 at Concordia High Banks in Concordia, Kan., before concluding July 12-13 at Jefferson County Speedway in Fairbury, Neb.
Bacon will then finish the week out piloting the Kelly Hinck-owned No. 21H in the MAMW finale at Sweet Springs Motorsports Complex in Sweet Springs, Mo., on July 14.
Last weekend, the Broken Arrow, Okla. driver swept the two-night BRANDT Professional Agriculture Corn Belt Nationals, featuring the AMSOIL USAC National Sprint Car Series, at Knoxville Raceway. He collected $25,000 in winnings over the two-night affair.
In last year’s Mid-America Midget Week, Bacon earned three top-five finishes in four starts, including a fifth at Red Dirt, a fifth at Jefferson County and a fourth at Sweet Springs.
Also of note, last September, Bacon was the winner of the richest midget race of the season – the $15,000-to-win BC39 at The Dirt Track at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
Bacon’s made four USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget starts this season, boasting a best finish of sixth at Bloomington Speedway during Indiana Midget Week in June.
He competed for Hinck in March’s Shamrock Classic at the Southern Illinois Center in DuQuoin, finishing 18th.
Bacon owns seven career NOS Energy Drink USAC National Midget Series victories.
