Braden Mitchell will make his NASCAR debut in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series next week at Eldora Speedway. The 19 year old Russellville, Alabama native will pilot the #33 Sparks Energy Inc. truck for Reaume Brothers Racing. The Tony Stewart-owned dirt track is well known for its “beating & banging” racing that it produces; but it’s nothing that Braden Mitchell isn’t familiar with. Mitchell has been racing dirt late models with Sparks Energy since he was 13. He races full time in the Nesmith 604 Dirt Crate Late Model at North Alabama Speedway and currently sits 2nd in points. Sparks Energy Inc. sponsors full time NASCAR XFINITY Series driver Joey Gase who will be on top of the spotters stand for Mitchell next Wednesday in the Eldora Dirt Derby.
“I’m beyond excited to be making my NASCAR debut next week,” said Mitchell. “I can’t thank Reaume Brothers and Sparks Energy Inc. enough for giving me a chance to show my talent in front of some of the NASCAR greats.” J Sparks added, “Braden is an incredibly talented driver and a great kid. I think Eldora is a perfect track for him to make his debut to showcase his talent.”
