Brandon Matus in action at Mercer Raceway Park – Rick Rarer Photo

The season is just beginning in Western Pennsylvania, but already ‘The Wheelman’ is off to a monumental start! Brandon Matus holds a top 10 spot in two different racetrack championship point chases in 2012, including being a competitor for the Lernerville Speedway sprint car track championship. Matus currently rides third in the Lernerville Speedway sprint car standings, as well as holds down the 10th spot in the Mercer Raceway Park rankings. Entering this Saturday night’s event at MRP, Matus finds himself just one point behind Evan City native, Brandon Spithaler, for the 9th position. The Wampum, Pennsylvania native has one career ‘410’ sprint car win at Lernerville Speedway, but looks to make number two happen tomorrow evening. 

Matus will start his Memorial Day weekend at Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pennsylvania tomorrow evening, May 25th. From there, the fourth generation driver will venture back to Mercer Raceway Park in Mercer, Pennsylvania for another evening of ‘Saturday Night Live’ action. On Sunday, May 27th, the familiar Matus Motorsports ’13’ will head west to Fremont Speedway in Fremont, Ohio for the $10,000-to-win All-Star Circuit of Champions weekend finale! “America’s Series” is hosting a two-day event at Fremont Speedway, but the Matus Motorsports operation will only be participating in the weekend finale.
