|Small Town Racer Chasing His Dreams
Brad Berry, a local dirt track driver from Alabama, received an opportunity from Lafferty Motor sports to further himself in the racing community. Lafferty Motor sports is a NASCAR team out of Concord, NC that competes in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and the ARCA series. Lafferty Motor sports give talented new comers the chance to reach their dreams. Brad traveled 450 miles from Sardis, AL to Hickory, NC to demonstrate not only his talent, but also his ability. Lafferty was looking for how accurate he was in his line, and also consistency on the track.
Lafferty Motor sports met with Brad to discuss what was expected on and off the track, and also how to attract potential sponsors. Then it was time for Brad to prove to Mr. Lafferty why he, not any other driver, deserved this opportunity. Brad was able to test an ARCA car on Hickory Motor Speedway, “The World’s Most Famous Short Track. Brad suited up and got in the seat of the #90 ARCA machine, but before going out he had to listen to everything that the team owner, Chris Lafferty, had to say.
While in the car, he would still have to listen to all of Lafferty’s directions. At the end of the testing session, Lafferty was impressed at how well he listened and followed directions and his overall car control while on the track. Lafferty then offered Brad the opportunity to drive for Lafferty Motor sports.
In order to achieve this dream, he has to obtain sponsorships to be able to compete to the best of his and Lafferty Motor sports abilities. The Lafferty team will be working with Brad to hone his talent and skill to make him a great driver on the track. The Lafferty marketing team will be working with Brad off the track to be good representative of not only the team, but also sponsors.
As mentioned earlier, Brad is a dirt track driver with big dreams to make it to NASCAR one day. He spends his Saturday nights at local dirt tracks such as Talladega Short Track which is only a few hundred feet across Speedway Boulevard from the famed Talladega Superspeedway, a track which he dreams of racing on very soon. He also races at Green Valley Speedway and Fort Payne Motor Speedway to name a few. His love for racing has always had a huge impact on his life. His determination and strong will started at the young age of 14 when he started racing and continues on today.
Brad and Lafferty Motor sports are looking to find potential sponsors to make this dream come true. To make all of this possible, Brad is looking to secure sponsorships. If you need more information on how to further his dream, please contact Brad Berry or Chris Lafferty at the below information.
