The ultra professional Rocket Industries team from Sydney comprising drivers Garry Brazier and Matt Young will be joined by Garry’s son Jordyn in the Brazier family car to kick of nominations for the Bill Wigzell Battle of the Bridge on October 20 at Murray Machining & Sheds Murray Bridge Speedway.
In what can only be described as an exciting time in Sprintcar racing, sixteen year old Jordyn Brazier will become the fourth generation Brazier this to race, following Great Grand Father Stan, Grand father Steve and Father Garry into the seat of a Sprintcar.
With the weight of expectation on his shoulders, Jordyn is already comfortable behind the wheel of an 800 horsepower Sprintcar.
“He is a lot faster than I thought he would be this early” said Garry after his first practice just weeks ago.
“He will turn some heads that’s for sure!”
Garry will again pilot the NSW 21 Rocket Car along side team mate Matt Young in the NSW 61, while Jordyn will carry the Qld 21 number.
It will be Garry’s first trip back to Murray Bridge after last season’s memorable World Series win, beating home a determined Brooke Tatnell in an epic 35 lap encounter.
“Anyone who saw World Series here last season will be back to see the Garry again” enthused promoter Tim McAvaney.
“The way Garry used the highline using his right rear tyre against the wall to kick the car down the main straight was what we expect from him”.
“I’m sure he will be doing the same come October 20!”
Meanwhile, Australia number #2 Shaun Dobson from Tasmania is also locked in driving the Downing Bros SA#97 Cool chassis, and Victorian guns Steven Bell and Nick Lacey have also joined the growing list of interstate stars. Mount Gambier gun Steven Lines will also run the Hall Racing WA#3 car with local hot shots Luke Dillon, Jamie Cobby and Daniel Pestka all expected to join the quality field .
