Prodigy Race Promotions on Sprint Car Insider. Driver Exclusive- BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (February 27, 2020) – > Brody Fuson is ready to take on the next level of progression in 2020 as his priorities shift to midget racing.
The 2020 season features a mixed micro sprint and midget schedule of around 45 shows scheduled. Nearly half of them will be in a midget, including a very ambitious month of November. The end of 2020 will see the debut of Brody Fuson at some of the worlds biggest and most prestigious midget races.
“I’m really excited to finally be old enough to race a full sized midget,” Fuson said. “I had a lot of fun racing in the Western Midget Racing races at Ventura last year and I can’t wait to get to experience the power and see more racetracks.”
Fuson did In fact dabble in some midget racing in 2019. He raced a handful of races in the new in 2019, Western Midget Racing Series at Ventura Raceway. He was even able to come away with two victories against a very experienced list of competitors.
Adding to his list of headlines in 2019 Fuson had quite the season in the micro sprint as well. He kicked off the year by winning Lemoore Raceway’s Jet Bowl Classic. However that wouldn’t be his biggest news maker at Lemoore. After winning the West Coast’s most prestigious up and coming race, the Mark Hagopian Memorial at Plaza Park, he returned to Lemoore to make history.
On October 11 Brody Fuson broke an eight year standing track record with an 11.217 lap time in qualifying that knocked Dominic Scelzi’s previous track record off the shelf.
In 2020 Fuson returns for more in the Micro ranks as well. His season kicks off March 6-7 at Keller Auto Raceway Plaza Park for the infamous Outlaw Nationals. The two day show gets the ball rolling for 2020 as two weeks later he makes his highly anticipated full-scale midget debut at Bakersfield Speedway.
The first of his roughly 16 midget shows will be at his home track of Bakersfield Speedway in Oildale on March 21. It will be the first time fans of his grandfather, the Bakersfield Bullet Rusty Carlile, will see the next rendition on home dirt.
June kicks off with his debut on the adobe Clay at Petaluma Speedway on the the 6th. The following Friday he’ll return to the seat of the micro at Plaza Park before he makes another attempt at earning a Bear during California Speedweek in the micro.
Right now the team is not 100% sure they make the first two nights of Speedweek on Tuesday June 23, at Dixon Speedway and Wednesday June 24, at Delta Speedway but nothing is off the table at this point.
The rest of the summer and into fall sees a heavy schedule of micro sprint racing until the weekend of September 18th and 19th. The weekend of the fourth annual Mark Hagopian Memorial. Fuson will have to decide if he wants to make a run at defending his non wing championship on Saturday night or if he would rather race in the midget at Ventura, as both are scheduled for the same night.
Only three races are scheduled for the month of October but they are potentially big ones. On Saturday October 10 Fuson is set to make his debut on the 1/4 mile red clay surface of Placerville Speedway. This one may be pivotal for experience leading into the race a month later.
The month of November is huge for Brody Fuson.
There are no micro races slated for this month at all. In November 2020 Brody Fuson officially makes his transition to full time midget racing. On the weekend of November 13th and 14th Fuson heads out to Queen Creek, Arizona to run with the USAC National touring midgets in the legendary Western World Championships at Arizona Speedway. His first national appearance happens to be at a race shrouded in history that is synonymous with an infamous track that closed before he was even born: Manzanita Speedway. History meets the future this November.
The following Tuesday Fuson returns to the track he’ll be making his debut on at Bakersfield Speedway. This time around it’s with the full field of USAC National Midgets. Just two days later it’s back up north to the Red Clay at Placerville and the second running of the Hangtown 100. Fuson will be attempting to qualify for his first of two potential 100 lap features of the month.
Because the next Thursday, Thanksgiving Day, it’s back to Ventura for what is possibly the most historic midget race on earth – the Turkey Night Grand Prix.
It’s a pivotal season for the career of Brody Fuson.
Big things are happening for the pilot of the RacePa Motorsports number 51. Look to the schedule for your chance to come see him live in action racing a micro sprint or a midget during the 2020 season. It all kicks off just weeks from now on March 6th and 7th at Keller Auto Raceway Plaza Park for the Outlaw Nationals.
For hometown fans, he’ll be on home dirt for the first time in March 21st before taking on the biggest season of his career.
