Even with a crazy 2020 racing season due to COVID-19, it was still business as usual for Earnest Performance across the country. Teams took Earnest Performance products to victory lane in all levels of racing during the year.
Just a few of the races won by Earnest Performance products include the All American 400 with Casey Roderick, the Islip 300 with Ryan Preece, the Glass City 200 with Steve Needles, the Oxford 250 with Johnny Clark and the Snowflake 100 with Jake Johnson. Stephen Nasse, Matt Craig, Justin Bonsignore. Casey Johnson and Josh Brock are just a few drivers who won series championships with Earnest Performance.
It has been a busy year overall for owner Brannon Earnest, bouncing from racetrack to racetrack to assist customers at the track.
“We came out of January, February pretty much rolling, we were pretty hot. COVID hit and everything slowed down and almost came to a stop for a couple months there,” Earnest told Speed51. “Once it started going again we saw it wasn’t going to be the end of the world and things picked up like nothing ever happened.”
Once racing resumed in May, Earnest Performance was a frequent visitor in victory lane. Among those victory lane appearances include 17 marquee wins in July and 13 in August. The stretch of success was at a level unseen by Earnest in his time with the company.
“I probably had two of the best months I’ve ever had in the second half of this year. I think, for a lot of people, the down time was the time for them to work on their stuff and really get their cars better so when racing started they were in a better spot to fine tune their programs and try new stuff.”
Earnest Performance now turn their attention to the 2021 season, which begins this weekend at New Smyrna Speedway with the Redeye 50/50, where he hopes for more success at the level seen in 2020.
“Next year’s just like every other year, just try to win the Snowball Derby and everything in the middle.”
