FROM THE DRIVER'S SEAT:
Because of that crash, my dad and I decided to get into a Mini Cup car. In 1996, I raced Rigid Junior Mini Cups and finished third in points. I also raced in the WKA (World Karting Association) at New Hampshire International Speedway. I won the championship by only 1 point at NHIS. That was my last season in the go-karts.
In 1997, my dad and I decided to take on a new task; racing a Suspended Mini Cup car. I raced in the Future Stars Class for racers age 11-15. I won the championship over David Noury that year. In 1998, I raced once again in the Future Stars Class and won the championship again, over Jamien Deschenes. In 1999, I moved into the Adult Class and won the 1999 Seekonk Speedway Championship. For 2000, we moved into the Baby Grand Stockcars and ran mainly an exciting season at Seekonk Speedway. It was a thrill but nerve-racking to test out the "new" Late Model/Pro Stock in late August and September.
I'm in auto racing because of all the excitement, close action, and because you don't know what will happen next. It also takes good driving, consistency, and good sportsmanship to become a Champion.
PERSONAL: Brenton "BJ" is currently a sophomore at Southern New Hampshire University. Like most busy 19 year olds, he spends his "free" time working, dating, and keeping up on his racing skills on the home computer!
He started racing at Sugar Hill Speedway in Karts at the age of 9 and over the course of a young "racing career" has seen several championships and wins, and his share of thrills and spills.
In 2003, BJ entered the highly competitive world of NASCAR Late Model Racing His season consisted of its ups and downs, and finished the season with 4 heat wins, and 7 top fives.

GOALS IN RACING:
2002 was a great year for us and I'm really proud of what we accomplished. I owe our success from last year to a lot of people. Especially my "crew chief" (my dad). I'd also like to thank Collision Centers of New Hampshire, Lovering Volvo, and Dupont Performance Finishes for their support.
You can't have a year like the one we had without a great "Crew Chief" (My Dad) and all the support from family, friends, and sponsors. Finally, I would like to thank my dad Mark, and my mom Cheryl for letting me race because they know what could happen to me out there.
