LATTINGTOWN, NY – Rising star Giovanni Bromante is the talk of the Late Model world early in 2019 – and for good reason.
The Long Island native has turned heads thus far with a pair of high profile victories, winning South Alabama Speedway’s Southern Super Series-sanctioned Rattler 250 on March 17th before swiftly following up with a second SSS event victory at 5 Flags Speedway on March 24th.
“It’s an incredible feeling to be able to hit the ground running like we have this season,” smiles Bromante. “We’re racing against some of the absolute best drivers and teams in the country every single week. So, to already have two big wins on our resume is a massively humbling feeling.”
The well-spoken teenager credits his Anthony Campi Racing team for helping him readjust, after having missed a large portion of the 2018 season with a spinal fracture suffered in a dirt bike crash.
“When I was at home rehabbing my injury I would never have imagined getting back in a racecar and going two-for-two like we have,” admits Bromante. “I can’t say enough about Anthony and his guys. They’re a huge part of the success I’ve had already.”
“This team gives me the best car I could ask for every single time I hit the track. I know that I’m in a position to succeed as soon as the car comes off of the hauler – and it’s tough to explain just how huge of a deal that is for a driver. It’s an incredible feeling to work with a team that wants to prosper just as much as I do.”
While Bromante and ACR have had incredible success early in the 2019 campaign, the team is well aware of all that lays ahead of them this season.
“We’re just getting warmed up – there’s still a ton of work left to do,” says Bromante. “Our team is committed to running for the Southern Super Series championship and we’ll also be doing the whole (5 Flags Speedway) Blizzard Series. That means we’ll be out there against elite-level talent every time we’re at the speedway.”
“It’s a grind, for sure. Our first two wins have been huge, but that doesn’t promise us anything moving forward. We have to stay after it and stay motivated. Our goal is to build on the momentum and the success that we’ve had this month and try to turn that into a full season that we can look back on and be proud of.”
