ALCONA, ON – Super Stock wheel man Brandon Passer netted a career-best $1500 payday with his 50-lap invitational victory at Sunset Speedway on August 18th.
Now, with some of the season’s richest and most prestigious events just weeks away, the Alcona, ON native is confident that his family-run team is prepared to maintain a presence in victory lanes all over Ontario.
“It’s incredible how good the ride home can feel when you’re leaving with a win that big,” smiles Passer. “The money definitely helps our budget for the last month of the season because we’re looking to hit all the big year-end shows.”
“Between Jukasa in two weeks and then the Playoff Season in September we’re going to be real busy this next little while. So it’s an awesome feeling to come into that stretch with some momentum.”
Passer’s Sunset Speedway victory was a statement in many ways, exposing the up-and-comer to a wider audience during a season in which he appears primed for a serious run towards a first ever Super Stock championship.
“It was nice to show that we aren’t just ‘points racers’,” offers Passer. “You put up the big purses and bring out the big fields and this team is always going to be ready to find a way to win.”
“This has been a great season for us so far. We set out to win a championship and we’re real close to making that happen. And we have a ton of races that are on our bucket list to win – so hopefully we can start checking those off, too.”
With only three points nights remaining for the Super Stock division, Passer sits 4-points behind current leader Frank Davey and aims to utilize his recent hot streak to usurp the veteran at the top of the standings.
“When you’re running well you can convince yourself of just about anything,” says Passer. “And I think we’ve absolutely convinced ourselves that we’re a good enough team to win this championship. We’ve come too far to back off now. This is a great car with great people working on it.”
“The plan now is to get this car back to victory lane a couple times before the end of the season. If we can keep winning, the points are going to take care of themselves.”
