After Finishing in Top 10 Again at Gateway Motorsports Park
JOLIET, IL – RFMS driver Travis Braden takes the track in the Scott 150 this Thursday at Chicagoland Speedway in Joliet, Illinois with the race televised live on Fox Sports 1 beginning at 8 p.m. CDT. Braden is feeling optimistic after getting another top 10 finish at the Gateway Motorsports Park in Madison, Illinois last Friday.
“My RFMS team and sponsors and I are excited after last week’s strong top-10 finish at Gateway. Week to week, race to race, we are improving and getting closer to competing consistently for wins,” said Braden. “We’ve already had a few races where I feel we were capable of winning, and just had misfortune, mistakes on my part, etc., but I think we’re going to be in the right place at the right time here one of these days. We’re proving that we can compete and we’re going after a win at Chicagoland.”

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 now looking forward to 2018, where he’ll work hard to emerge as a driving force in the ARCA Racing Series and beyond.
