Brent Brevak Makes Presence Known At Madison International Speedway

OREGON, Wisconsin (August 31, 2011) – – In his return to the grassroots of Brent Brevak’s early racing career at Madison International Speedway, the now ARCA Racing Series driver flexed his muscle during Friday night’s Herr’s Live Life With Flavor! 200. Unfortunately mechanical gremlins halted what easily could have been a career-best night for the second generation driver.

Earlier in the week, the Brevak Racing team announced a new marketing partner for ARCA’s return to Madison International Speedway as the Legendary Waters Resort and Casino leaped aboard the team’s No. 3 Dodge Charger for the 15th race of the season.

Armed with the support and guidance of long-time ARCA veteran Mark Gibson, Brevak and the team knew that the short hour and a half practice session would be crucial in helping dial in the team’s No. 3 Legendary Waters Resort and Casino Dodge Charger.

With the field extremely tight, Brevak posted the 19th fastest lap overall after posting a time of 19.300 seconds at 93.264 miles per hour. Somewhat satisfied with their effort, Brevak, Gibson and other members of the family-owned team connected together and agreed on a setup for qualifying which included a gear change.

When time trials rolled around, Brevak, the son of 1990 ARCA Racing Series champion Bob Brevak maneuvered his No. 3 Legendary Waters Resort and Casino Dodge Charger around the half-mile short track in 18.614 seconds or 96.701 miles per hour, landing them 10th overall in Brevak’s first short track contest of 2011.

Exceptionally pleased with the performance of their Dodge Charger in qualifying, the team set their attention towards the 200-lap race.

Knowing the characteristics of Madison International Speedway, Brevak knew that being around in the end would be pivotal to a good finish. From the moment the green flag dropped, Brevak remained on his toes but mounted consistent and respectable lap times.

With the track being extremely difficult to pass, the ARCA Racing Series teams would have to use different types of strategy to make their way through the field. For Brevak, one of his strategies was to keep his No. 3 Legendary Waters Resort and Casino Dodge Charger on the lead lap and within the sights of the lead pack.

Able to do both and hovering comfortable inside the top-15 during the race’s first quarter, it appeared that Brevak was setting himself up for his second top-10 finish of the season but the team’s night began to go array just after lap 50.

Under green flag conditions, Brevak informed his team of a problem with the brakes, which was later proven to be a malfunction in the brake bias which almost completely eliminated Brevak’s front brakes.

While dealing with hardly any brakes, Brevak impressively maintained his position on the lead lap and utilized a caution flag near the half-way point hoping to make a statement.

Knowing that fresh rubber could be the winning element in the Herr’s Live Life With Flavor! 200, the team stayed out on the race track which lined the No. 3 Legendary Waters Resort and Casino Dodge Charger fifth on the grid.

As the cars began to accelerate on the restart, more gremlins would bite the Ashland, Wisconsin native as a failure in the drivetrain would force Brevak to end his fifth race of the season wondering what could have been.

The team would be credited with completing 92 laps and finishing 25th overall.

“We definitely had a sporty car in qualifying,” Brevak said, “And we were running as planned early in the race which meant just staying as close to the lead pack as possible but giving ourselves enough room that if something transpired, we could escape. Near lap 50, the brake bias malfunction really made it difficult and wicked to enter the turns with hardly any brakes in the front end. Despite the brake issue, we decided to take a gamble and I really thought it was going to pay off – but then on the restart, we had something break in the drivetrain and that was that.”

The recent college graduate added, “I want to thank the Legendary Waters Resort and Casino for jumping aboard with us for ARCA’s return to Madison. I really enjoyed representing them. I hated that we could not give them a better finish, but hopefully we’ll have a chance to make it up to them down the road. For us now, we’ll get ourselves back together and head to Kansas in October and see if we can’t have a nice recovery there.”

In addition to the Legendary Waters Resort and Casino, Club Lamark also served as an associate sponsor on the No. 3 Dodge Charger on Friday night.

Next up for the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards is the second and final installment on the dirt when the sanctioning body makes their annual trip to the DuQuoin State Fairgrounds for the running of the Southern Illinois 100 presented by Federated Auto Parts on Labor Day, Monday, September 5.
