After Maintaining Fifth in Overall Driver’s Points at Elko Speedway
MARNE, MI – RFMS Racing driver Travis Braden takes to the track in the Primera Plastics 200 this Saturday night at Berlin Speedway in Marne, Michigan. The race will be televised LIVE on MavTV beginning at 9 p.m. EST. Braden continues to press on after his seventh Top 10 finish and his best short track finish of the season at Elko Speedway in Elko, Minnesota last Saturday.
“What a wild race at Elko Speedway! We fought VERY hard all night long and managed to sneak up to 7th on the final restart, which is now our best short track finish of the season. We’ve simply just had a hard go of it on the short tracks this year but the fight has remained as strong as ever in my team, and we’re still making progress. No one is giving up. Special thanks to RFMS racing and our sponsors, especially MatrixCare whose presence and support at Elko Speedway helped make the experience that much more memorable,” Braden said. “We are still holding strong in 5th spot in driver’s points and this team is staying very optimistic as we push forward to our next short track race at Berlin Speedway in Marne, Michigan on Saturday. I’ve made many successful trips to Berlin in super late models, and I have a great fan base up there, so I can’t wait to get to the track!”

Though this will be his first full season in ARCA, Braden is no stranger to the racing world. 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 2018, where he’ll work hard to emerge as a driving force in the ARCA Racing Series and beyond.
