Wampum, Pennsylvania native and Fully Injected teammate, Brandon Matus, officially kick-started his 2012 season with All-Star Circuit of Champions sprint car competition in Ocala, Florida.
The Western Pennsylvania youngster told fans earlier this winter that he intended on competing with “America’s Series” on a semi-regular basis in 2012- with full intentions on starting the upcoming season in Florida. Matus did just that by participating in three full nights of action with the All-Stars at Bubba Raceway Park in Ocala, Florida.
Just under thirty cars were signed-in for the Thursday- Friday-Saturday event; which included very stiff All-Star and Pennsylvania competition. The All-Stars were lead by Danny Lasoski, Tim Shaffer, Dale Blaney, and David Gravel- with the talented Pennsylvania roster lead by Fred Rahmer, Greg Hodnett, and Western Pennsylvania rising star, Danny Holtgraver.
Matus had a very beneficial weekend in the “Sunshine State” – collecting valuable track time while also earning a starting spot in all three All-Star A-main events! Brandon’s accomplishments on the weekend included a B-main win on Saturday evening – while also finishing the feature inside the top 20. He finished a high 19th on Saturday night.

Attica Raceway Park in Attica, Ohio will host the traveling sprinters for two full shows on Friday and Saturday – April 6th and 7th. Friday night’s preliminary event will pay $3,000 to the winner – with Saturday night’s finale paying $5,000!
