PORTAGE, Wis. (September 21, 2021) – It has been a year of learning for Brady Bill. However, this Sunday he’s hoping some home cooking will help him end his TUNDRA Super Late Model Series EPYK Media rookie season on a high note.
“Excited is an understatement,” Bill said of Sunday’s Round Six Dedicated to Carl Wegner. “I love DRP. It’s where I turned my first laps in a race car and I’ve had some pretty good results there, so I’m hoping to have a good run Sunday”
Bill made waves last season competing in both the Late Model and UMA 602 Late Model division. He won the Championship in the 602 class and scored a feature win and three Top Fives in the Late Model division.
Making the move to Super Late Models has come with its hurdles. After showing good speed in the Icebreaker to begin the year at Dells Raceway Park, Bill has been learning new facilities and picking up lessons along the way.
“Stepping up to the Super Lates has been a challenge,” he said. “It feels like my first year racing again. I feel like I’ve been making progress little by little and I like the challenges just makes you better at the end of the day.”
“My TUNDRA season hasn’t been the best, but hasn’t been the worst,” Bill said. “We are getting better and making progress. It’s tough showing up to new tracks I’ve never been to, but I’ve definitely been having a blast out there.”
Bill has shown good speed and is hoping that will translate into some results this Sunday. With plenty of laps at Dells Raceway Park, he’ll be one of the more experienced drivers at the third-mile. Being just 20 minutes from his hometown of Reedsburg also helps him amp up for the event.
“Other than being home, I just love DRP,” Bill said. “It’s always good, hard racing. You can pass on the bottom or the top. I’ve just always loved watching races there growing up, and now to be out there, it’s like a dream come true.”
With some success this weekend, Bill will be able to carry some momentum into the post-season portion of 2021 and have a good notebook for future travel. He’s ready to give his many hometown fans and friends something to cheer about.
“Expectations for Sunday are to qualify into the show and hopefully run up front,” Bill said. “I’d like to finish Top Five. That’s my goal and I think we can do it with the series coming to our home track.”
Round Six Dedicated to Carl Wegner takes place next Sunday, September 26 at Dells Raceway Park. Qualifying is scheduled for 12:30 with racing at 2 pm. TUNDRA will be joined by the DRP Sportsman and American Super Cup Series.
Dells Raceway Park is located at N1070 Smith Road just north of downtown Wisconsin Dells. For more information visit http://www.dellsracewaypark.com
