Jimmy “Bubba” Broderick Excited At First Start in Full-Size Sprint Car
Brookfield, CT – (June 28, 2007) Jimmy “Bubba” Broderick is gearing up for his first start in a full-size 360 sprint car on Tuesday, July
3 at the Rolling Wheels Raceway Park in Elbridge, NY. “I am very excited to drive it…I really can’t wait,” Jimmy commented after being asked what his thoughts were on the upcoming event.
He will be driving American Sprint Car Series 2006 Patriot Regional Champion, Chuck Hebing’s backup car in the race after he made an agreement with Broderick a while back. “It was a little deal we made,” Jimmy stated. “We let him drive my backup car over at Weedsport a couple weeks ago.” The plan is to run well so that they can think about moving up to a bigger car such as the full-size sprint cars in the near future. “Hopefully, if I do well, we’re probably gonna move up to something like that.”
The Brookfield, CT teen won’t have much time to get nervous as he will be racing his #5 mini sprint this weekend at Accord Speedway on Friday and Whip City Speedway on Saturday. Although he doesn’t race for points at these two tracks, he does go to win. “Those two tracks are weekly tracks…I just go there to win and get some seat time.”
The previous weekend was run Saturday night at Fulton Speedway where “Bubba” won his heat race, brought home a 2nd place finish in his feature and found himself sitting back in the points lead in the Central New York Mini Sprint Series. “The guy that was in the lead, his clutch broke, so I’m back in first place in points.”
