Brandon Matus has wasted no time this off-season preparing for his 2012 schedule. The ‘Team Fully Injected’ sprint car stand-out has been busy in his Wampum, Pennsylvania race shop preparing his ‘GF1 Chassis’ and ‘Gressman Powersports’ power plant.
Matus is a fourth generation driver who spends most of his summer traveling up and down the highway within the Western Pennsylvania circuit. He recently picked up his first career 410 sprint car victory this past August at Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pennsylvania. His consistency also landed him top five finishes in two different race track points chases; including Lernerville Speedway and Mercer Raceway Park.
As far as Brandon Matus’ future outlook, things are looking a little different. The 2012 plan of attack will consist of more traveling and more exposure for the western Pennsylvania teenager. The new year will begin in Ocala, Florida; where Matus plans on competing with the All-Star Circuit of Champions at the Bubba Raceway Park during the last weekend of February. From then on, the Matus Motorsports team will focus on hitting a majority of the All-Star sanctioned events in the upper northeast and close to home. His 2012 schedule will consist of extensive traveling with the All-Star Circuit of Champions, as well as competing with some of the best sprint car competition in the country on a weekly basis.
Brandon would like to thank his 2012 sponsors:
