@PtboSpeedway • Peterborough, ON (May 30, 2016)- They might not be the most powerful machines in the pit area, but anyone familiar with the division will tell you that the Battlefield Equipment Rental 4Fun class regularly offers some of the most action-packed racing at Canada’s Toughest 1/3-Mile Paved Oval.
26 year-old Brandon Feeney would be considered a veteran of the track’s entry level division. The Orono, Ontario resident has been a regular in the field, steering his #38 ride since 2014. While he has the desire to explore other racing classes and recently acquired an Ontario Modifieds Racing Series chassis that he hopes to debut later this year, he’ll continue to race ‘for fun’.
“Its an affordable racing division and I get to have a good time with a great group of people. Who could ask for anything more,” said Feeney, who earns a paycheque as a mechanic at Lee’s Autoworks. “I love the adrenaline rush that comes with being at the track every Saturday night. Even when I’m not racing, I’m thinking about some changes I can make on the car to make it better.”
Even at this level of competition, Brandon Feeney says there have been some memorable moments during his career. From finishing 9th in last season’s final point standings and 8th during 2014, his accomplishments also include winning the OMRS Award in 2014 and capturing the 4Fun feature checkered flag during an OSCAAR event at Kawartha Speedway. While he has yet to claim main event win at Peterborough, the popular driver is hoping to find his way into the winner’s circle.
“I got a qualifying heat win last year, so if I can find a little racing luck, I’m sure it’ll happen before too long,” said Feeney, who as his sights set on making a start at Sunset Speedway and would love to race the high banks at Bristol Motor Speedway. “Every driver in the pit area is working toward the same goals and even though we all want to win, we’re also quick to help each other achieve our objectives.”
For the 2016 season, Brandon Feeney’s program is supported by Deaner’s Wieners, K1 Graphics, Boundy Roofing, Tough as Nails Strongman Tour, Gee Peez Property Management, Lee’s Autoworks, Pete Larkin Salvage, P.S. Auto Parts, Laurie’s Delights, Pre Fab Drywall, Pineridge Auto Supply and Clarke Motorsports Communications.
Feeney says that thanks to the kindness of Dean O’Reilly from Deaner’s Wieners, his team will host a silent auction on a Deadwood Sounds custom guitar – valued at well over $1000 – with proceeds to Make-a-Wish. The winning bid will be announced on the final day of the 24th Annual Autumn Colours Classic.
