You are no doubt familiar with motorcycle daredevils jumping over school buses. Well, our boy Brad is turning it all around. Yep, “Backwards” Brad will be using a school bus (actually a Mini Bus) to jump over motorcycles at the season-ending Big Y World Class Market Smacktoberfest Sunday, Oct. 21.
“Got it figured out,” reports Voglesong. “Nothing can go wrong.”
“It’s out of the mind of Brad Voglesong,” says Speedbowl General Manager Bill Roth. “It’s safe to assume some craziness.”
It will be part of a full menu of excitement that includes what could well be the biggest and best Trailer Race yet at the Speedbowl. The Speedbowl has become the unquestioned leader when it comes to producing Trailer Races – automotive mayhem at its best.
Two Dean’s Auto Recycling Demolition Derbies (eight and four cylinder) and another round of “Speedbowl Bowling” is also on the schedule. Look for Voglesong to be involved in lot of things including the Trailer Race when he is part of a emerging group of “experts” that also includes Duane Noll, Rick “Demo Dick” Kaupaus and Rick Whittle.
“Oh, we’re having fun but don’t think for a second we’re not seriously competing out there,” Voglesong says of the Trailer Racing. “Whatever we do, we want to win.”
He’ll have to steer through some big-time carnage. As many as 40 entries are expected. The object is to dislodge car from trailer of the other competitors which results in a track filled with not only cars and trailers but interesting cargo such as fruits and vegetables, hay bails, outhouses, boats, etc. “Everybody laughs but the cleanup crew,” says Roth. “They face a yeoman job after a Trailer Race.”
