Fuson Finds Winners Circle to Start 2020

Prodigy Race Promotions on Sprint Car Insider. Driver Exclusive- BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (March 10, 2020) – > Brody Fuson is off to a winning start in 2020 after grabbing the opening night Super 600 victory at the Outlaw Nationals.

In this pivotal season for the pilot of the 51 he was able to get it started with a win on the very first night in the micro at Keller Auto Raceway. Although every win is special, this one takes on a whole new element of significance. Ordinarily known as a non wing ringer, one might expect to see the 51 at the top of the non wing charts, but this time, he got it done with the wing up top, and against some of the nations best competition.

Night one of the two night affair began with dismal qualifying results. He timed in 7th in non wing and 12th in wing. Qualifying left the team searching for more heading into heat races. However they were able to find it as he churned up third place runs in both wing and non wing heats.

In the non wing main the results don’t quite look as good on paper as they actually were. The night one non wing main event was a battle to the end. With the leader in site five drivers battled for the victory most of the way. It wasn’t until the end a new challenger appeared and charged all the way up to second and relegated Fuson to a 6th place. Although he was just outside of the top five he was in the battle all race long.

The night wasn’t over. Scheduled to start on the outside of the front row Fuson still had the 30 lap Super 600 winged feature ahead of him. As the green flag waved Fuson put the 51 out front. He had to handle a fierce charge from behind him as second continuously presented a challenge and at times even made the strike. Fuson caught one lucky break after getting a stoppage after succumbing to the pressure. He was able to re-inherit the lead after scoring reverted back to the previous lap.

It was far from over however.

Back out front he again got everything he could handle from second place down the stretch. But this time he maintained the pressure flawlessly and out drove the field to victory. It was a big night for Fuson. Not only does the win bring confidence heading into bigger races this season, his ability to adapt, and continue improving throughout the night may have the biggest impact on him down the road.

“I really didn’t know we would be this good tonight after qualifying 12th,” Fuson said on the podium. “But we continued to work and the car just got better and better, it really says a lot about who I have working on my cars. Getting a win on the first night is really the best way to start a season.”

Returning for night two track conditions were much more difficult and proved to be a challenge for drivers. Fuson once again sustained qualifying results that left much more to be desired. It was again 7th in non wing and 14th in wing.

The non wing night two result was identical on paper but took a much different path to get there. He again finished third in his heat and sixth in the main. The wing night once again saw vast improvements throughout the night. He finished 5th in his heat landing the 10th starting spot in the main. Despite finishing just outside the top five his Super 600 main event saw him come away with a very positive result. He charged through the field four spots to take home sixth. It was the talent littered field he charged through that made the impact along with showcasing the ability to adapt and overcome throughout a single race night that will breed confidence moving forward.

Week one for Brody Fuson in the micro sprint is in the books. Up next he makes his long awaited debut in a full size midget in front of his hometown fans. On Saturday March 21st Fuson will make his rookie debut in the USAC West Coast Midget series at Bakersfield Speedway. He finally has the chance to race in-front of hometown family, friends, and fans who have watched his grandfather Rusty Carlisle for years.

The race in two weeks in Oildale is highly anticipated for everyone around the RacePa Motorsports team and Brody Fuson himself. The next step of progression in Fuson’s Motorsports career is on deck. The grandson of the Bakersfield Bullet begins writing the next chapter of his own book, in Bakersfield. The time has finally come.
