After enjoying a very successful 2019 season at his home track of Tucson Speedway in Arizona, Brandon Farrington will be looking for out-of-state success in 2020. The driver of the No. 22 Super Late Model has done some traveling in the past but hopes to increase his schedule and find more success during the upcoming season.
Farrington, now a three-time track champion at Tucson, captured five wins in 11 starts on his way to winning the championship in 2019. After a tough battle against his TMI teammate Kole Raz, Farrington came out on top by a slim 10-point margin.
After a dominant season, Farrington now sets his focus on having more success outside of the state of Arizona.
“My goal in 2020 is to be more competitive when we unload at other race tracks,” Farrington stated. “We have done a lot of traveling and had some good runs here and there but were never truly satisfied. To win at another track would be my goal for me and my team in 2020 and that would mean a whole lot if we were able to.”
In addition to running the full season at Tucson Speedway in 2020, he is looking to run five or more races at Irwindale Speedway in California, The Bullring at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, as well as one or two races at Evergreen Speedway in Washington. His first race at one of these tracks will be the Sunrise Ford All-Star Shootout at Irwindale on February 1.
Tucson Speedway kicks off their season with the Chilly Willy January 23rd-25th.
