2015 News and Racing Results

  

Brady Bacon, Crew & "The Mean Green 69 Machine" at Bubba's Ocala Speedway 2/21/2015, Ocala Fl.  It was a real nail-biter! Brady got the lead right from the Green Flag and held it for 30 laps. About the 20th lap Brady's lead was starting to erode. Chase Stockon's car was clearly getting faster and Brady had his hands full for the final 10 laps. The race came down to the last turn of the last lap when Chase Stockon made a attempt to pass. Brady held his line and came out the Winner.  It was quite a race, and I am glad I was there to see it. Did I mention that Brady opened the 2015 Season on Friday night with a 3rd place finish? One more night to go at Ocala then on to East Bay next weekend. This was a Historic 87th National Win! (more later)
RESULTS FROM THE FLORIDA SEASON OPENING TRIP FOR 2015
It could be called the trip from hell if you were looking at all that went wrong. But the Hoffman Team showed its grit and championship determination in Florida. Frankly I can not remember everything that happened, but here are the primary happenings:

- After only 9 laps or so the primary, newly refreshed motor blew in practice night at Ocala
- The second motor blew night 3 in Ocala when we had a top 5 or better locked.
- The 4 wheeler locked up and could not be used the 2 nights in East Bay, a lot of pushing   by hand. Thanks to USAC and fellow racers for use of their 4 wheelers. Did I mention that we pitted out of the infield , requiring a lot of help to move everything.
- The crew , expecting to have a day or 2 to relax, worked 9am-9pm or later daily. We changed the entire fuel system on the primary car to assure no fueling problems were causing motor problems.
- Trips back and forth from Tampa to Ocala to pick up a spare car .
- Had to replace the front right tire on the truck, due to foreign object in-bedded.( Picture)
- Got totally soaked cleaning the car in the rain before heading home .
- All time win #87 came in night 2 at Ocala.
- 2 quick times at Ocala
- Top 3 finishes in every race where we finished or were not taken out by a fellow competitor.

Night 2 at East Bay while running 2nd, with a chance at another win, the 3rd place car decided to take us out by ramming into our rear bumper and spinning us out. Of course he kept going. Apologies rang very hollow.
- A very fast car every night .

It was great to see our friends Stush and Toni in East Bay. We owe a big thank you to Captain Jack Nowling for his hospitality and kindness in sharing his home with the racers.

Looking forward to racing at our home track, Lawrenceburg on April 4th. Taking a deep breath and back to work for now.
