Brady Short, 2B Racing/Lucas Oil Products Team Look Forward to Busy Weekend

FAIRMOUNT, Ind. (June 14, 2007) -- Brady Short and the 2B Racing/Lucas Oil Products Gaerte-Powered Maxim Chassis team has been preparing for a busy weekend of four races, two different sanctioning bodies and two different track surfaces, all in four days.

Competing in the United States Auto Club (USAC) Lucas Oil National Sprint Car competition on Thursday at Gas City I-69 Speedway and again on Saturday at O'Reilly Raceway Park (ORP), Short will see two very different track surfaces at those two events.

Gas City is a ¼ mile, semi-banked dirt track, located a little over an hour north of Indianapolis on I-69 at exit 59. The event scheduled for Thursday at Gas City is the rescheduled event from the Border Wars weekend that was rained out earlier in the season.

Saturday night will see Short and the Lucas Oil team race on the 3/8 mile, semi-banked paved oval at ORP, located in Clermont, Ind., just outside of Indianapolis. The event is billed as the 2nd Annual Toyota Racing Classic presented by Comfort Suites of Brownsburg.

On Friday and Sunday evenings, Short will be looking to make up ground in points during the King of Indiana Sprint Series (KISS) events held at Bloomington Speedway and Kokomo Speedway, respectively. Sitting in second place, Short is only 25 points outside of first place, trailing red-hot Jon Stanbrough.

"This weekend is going to be hectic, but as a race car driver, I couldn't ask for a more fun weekend," commented Short. "Kokomo and Gas City are both like home tracks for Scott (Benic) and Bloomington is only 20 minutes from home for me."
