In 2018 Braden finished fifth in driver’s points, 11 top 10 finishes
DAYTONA BEACH – After an exciting first full season in the ARCA Racing Series, 24-year-old Travis Braden is ready to hit the track again, beginning at Daytona International Speedway Saturday, February 9th at 4:30 p.m. EST for the Lucas Oil 200 broadcast on Fox Sports 1.
“Having the chance to race another full ARCA season feels like a dream come true, and I have so many people to thank,” said Travis Braden. “For RFMS Racing and all of their sponsors to offer me another year full-time is a great gesture. They all put so much faith and trust in me, and that really drives me to always be on top of my game. We had a great 2018, but in all honesty, it was just the tip of the iceberg. None of us will be satisfied until we’re taking home the big trophies, and that’s what it takes to make the difference. Everyone on a team has to want it, and we have that. We’ve been working 7 days a week since October on our 2019 program, and I think that will really show. It all starts at the Lucas Oil 200 this Saturday.”
WHAT: Lucas Oil 200, first ARCA Racing Series match of the season
WHERE: Daytona International Speedway, 1801 West International Speedway Blvd. Daytona Beach, FL 32114
WHEN: Saturday, February 9th 4:30 p.m. EST on Fox Sports 1.
As Travis Braden enters his second ARCA Racing Series season, he has four top five finishes and eleven top ten finishes under his belt. Braden also finished the 2018 ARCA season fifth in driver’s points. Braden’s passion for the sport of racing runs as deep as the valleys of the Appalachian Mountains. At tracks in Columbus and Xenia, Ohio, Travis secured more than 100 victories before he was 13, and at age 17 he notched 10 victories and was crowned the Columbus track champion, the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series State Champion and the NWASS National Rookie of the Year – all before graduating from high school.
Braden is a two-time ARCA/CRA Super Series Champion, and is continuing to be committed to the ARCA Racing Series for the remainder of 2019, where he’ll work hard to stay a fierce competitor and bring home strong finishes for his sponsors and RFMS racing.
