OREGON, Wisconsin (August 24, 2011) - - Armed with a new sponsor, Brent Brevak and his Brevak Racing team will rejoice with the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards when they both return to competition at Madison International Speedway for Friday night’s Herr’s Live Life With Flavor 200.
The signing of Legendary Waters Resort and Casino located in Red Cliff, Wisconsin gives the recent College graduate high hopes for his fifth start of the 2011 season.
“I am pumped about going back to Madison International Speedway on Friday,” said Brevak, a native of Ashland, Wisconsin. “We are all proud to carry the signage of Legendary Waters Resort and Casino on our No. 3 Dodge Charger this week. It’s important for us to go out there and give them a good finish, considering the race is literally in their backyard, not to mention we would like to bounce back from our misfortune at Pocono a few weeks ago.
"Legendary Waters Resort and Casino is an absolutely beautiful resort that sits directly off the shores of Lake Superior. It is only a short distance from Ashland so I know personally how gorgeous that area is. Every single room in Legendary Waters has a perfect view of Lake Superior, which is a view that cannot be beat. Anybody looking for a beautiful vacation spot should check out their website or check them out on Facebook. We’re looking forward to developing a long-lasting partnership.”
Rachael Lamkin, marketing manager for the Legendary Waters Resort and Casino also commented on the announcement. “Legendary Waters Resort & Casino is proud and excited to partner with Brevak Racing in the ARCA Racing Series return to Madison International Speedway. On behalf of everyone at the Legendary Waters Resort and Casino we wish them the best of luck on Friday night.”
Rewinding back to Pocono, in his first career start at the 2.5-mile triangle at Pocono, Brevak’s chances at a strong finish were dashed after being collected in a first lap incident. Set for redemption, Brevak and his team don’t think there is a better place to get the job done other than Madison.
“I have a lot of memories at Madison,” continued Brent, driver of the No. 3 Legendary Waters Resort and Casino Dodge Charger. “It’s literally where my racing career launched. I raced there for two years in a weekly Late Model Series a couple years ago. I know the race track and I know how to race it, so I’m enthused to see what I can do there in an ARCA car. Although I live about 300 miles away from the track, this is like a home race for me as there aren’t many other top level race tracks in Wisconsin. Most of my family lives up in this region, so there will definitely be a lot of people there to cheer us on.”
Co-team owner Shelly Brevak offered her thoughts on the new partnership for the 15th race of the 2011 ARCA Racing Season. "We're excited to introduce Legendary Waters Resort and Casino to the racing community and the racing community to Legendary Waters Resort and Casino. We are truly grateful for the opportunity to help showcase this new destination resort right in our own back yard. Fans looking for a unique year round vacation experience will definitely enjoy what Legendary Waters Resort and Casino has to offer!"
Father and former-racer Bob Brevak recalls his recent memories of Madison and is looking forward to making new memories this week. “We drove five hours to Madison every weekend for two seasons,” he said. “I felt Brent could gain valuable short track experience racing against the competition they had at Madison. It took dedication but was well worth the effort. As a driver, it's what you have to do to eventually be able to compete at the ARCA and NASCAR level."
Before the team shifts their attention to a busy day on Friday, they will make an appearance at Madison’s top racing bar, Club Lamark (1525 N. Stoughton Rd. in Madison, near the intersection of Highways 51 and 151) from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. Thursday. In addition to the No. 3 Legendary Waters Resort and Casino Dodge Charger being on display, Brevak will mingle and sign autographs with fellow ARCA drivers Grant Enfinger and Tom Hessert for the attendees.
In addition to the Legendary Waters Resort and Casino, Club Lamark will also serve as an associate sponsor on the No. 3 Dodge Charger.
Brevak Racing encourages their fans and supporters to check out their official Brevak Racing Group Facebook page where you can find more about the team and the “Ride Along With Brent” fan participation program.
