Bacon set for Shamrock Classic Double Duty this Weekend


Lonnie Wheatley, WINCHESTER, Ind. (March 5, 2020) – This weekend’s “Shamrock Classic” at Du Quoin’s Southern Illinois Center offers up a busy weekend of racing action for Brady Bacon.

Bacon will take the wheel of Kelly Hinck’s No. 21h Micro Sprint on Friday and Saturday while doubling up in USAC Midget action aboard Hinck’s entry on Saturday.

“The Macho Man” ranks as just one of two drivers to race his way into each of the previous four editions of the “Shamrock Classic” with top finishes of fourth in both 2016 and 2017.

Bacon’s first USAC Midget outing of the young season comes on the heels of sweeping the USAC National Sprint Car series opening pair of events at Ocala, Florida’s Bubba Raceway Park in February.

While Bacon takes aim at a third USAC National Sprint Car championship in 2020, he will also mix in a wide variety of events including the dirt portion of the USAC Silver Crown trail, selected Midget events as well winged 360-ci and 410-ci Sprint Car events.

“It will be another busy year, a lot like last year,” Bacon says.  “We raced over 100 times last year, hopefully we can match or exceed last year’s 13 overall wins and possibly get a championship to go along with it.”
