Tony Bruce Jr.
Peoria, Arizona -March 2, 2012-
The 2012 season opener for the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by MavTV saw Owasso, Oklahoma’s Tony Bruce Jr. take the prelim night victory in the Copper Classic at Canyon Speedway Park in Peoria, Arizona driving his Weld Racing wheel equipped Sprint Car.
“There’s a lot of work that goes into this and you know I just can’t thank everyone enough for sticking with me” commented Bruce in victory lane. “Last year we were just absolutely horrible, probably the worst year I’ve ever had in a Sprint Car, and to have a good winter with the addition of Wayne [Priddy] and having the team back it just proves we’re here to stay.”
