Brent Copper grew up at and “cut his teeth” racing at Bronson Speedway some 20+ years ago. His roots at the track go deep, as he relates stories about growing up at the speedway and about his Dad and the contributions Tom Cooper brought to Bronson Speedway, and many racetracks across the state of Florida. One could say the Coopers, Brent and Robbie are one of Bronson Speedway’s well known talented racing families. (more…)
The Pro Challenge Series returned to Bronson Speedway Sat night with racecars looking like miniature Sprint Cup cars and packing lightning fast speeds around the high banks of Bronson Speedway. Mark Landis in the #56 was on rails as he lapped the field twice with Blaise Rutherford #05 in tow. A green to checkered finish placed a smiling Landis in Victory Lane. (more…)
Super Late Models rolled into town and as expected Wayne Andersons # 84 SLM was on rails. Anderson dominated the event and rocketed into Victory Lane. Finishing 2 and 3rd to the patriarch were sons Randy and Ricky. The senior Anderson is serving notice that he is KING of the newly adopted 25 lap sprint event. Both Bronson Speedway and Citrus County Speedway have adopted a 25 lap race format in order to cut to the chase. The drop of the green signals “game on” so passing begins at lap 1 leaving NO time for the traditional follow the leader type race. It’s a pass or be passed race format, and to date Anderson leads the way finding consistant success at both short track venues. Anderson “aint so easy to pass”.
Bronson Speedway fans were treated to an exciting evening of intense, side by side, paint swapping, heart pounding “thats what we call racing” events this past Saturday night. If you were not there you definitely missed a night of come backs…
Kevin Durden returned to the high banks of Bronson Speedway in the “Pork Chop Wilson” owned # 56. Durden’s car looked hot just rolling out of the trailer and when it took to the track, the stop watch doesn’t lie…Lightning fast…. however in the tweaking of the set up process, disaster struck…Engine issues would side line the well know Durden and his come back to Bronson Speedway would be delayed.
Bronson Speedway, May 10, 2014: Bronson Speedway’s track announcer said it best, “race fans, get ready to see the state’s best Pro Truck drivers…” OK, so not all were there, but four of the state’s best Pro Truck drivers in JR Garcia, Mica Williams, Jessica Murphy and Steven King where there to show their support for the Series and Bronson’s local oval race track. The Pro Truck Series considers Bronson’s three-eighths-mile, high-bank asphalt oval track to be a hidden gem, and it is apparent that this small town race track is making every effort to support their drivers and traveling series. Many of Saturday night’s drivers share the same opinion in that the track is fun to race on and more drivers should make the trip to show their support. Although the Pro Truck count was less than expected, the track and Series still delivered on the guaranteed payout while giving the teams a break on the number of race laps.
Big Daddy Dave Pletcher, the legendary and talented Late Model driver, will buckle up to race in the Inaugural Southern Pro Am Truck Series Lug Nut 50 at Bronson Speedway on Saturday March 29, 2014. Pletcher will be racing the number 74 Moyer Motorsports JRC Transportation Pro Truck Chevrolet. “Pletcher raced with my father for years and it will be great to see him race in another Moyer Motorsports race car,” said AJ Moyer, son of late Larry Moyer.
The Southern Pro Am Truck Series and its supporting sponsors, Jostens, JRC Transportation and Driver Seat Racing will award the winner of the March 29th race with $1,000, four VIP pit passes to the May 3rd ARCA 200 race at Talladega Speedway, and a Jostens Winner’s Lug Nut Ring which will commemorate the 2014 Inaugural Southern Pro Am Truck Series Lug Nut 50 win.
