Braun Motorsports Returns To NASCAR

Through a press release the newly-formed Braun Motorsports is proud to announce that the organization will make its NASCAR Camping World Truck Series debut later this month at Bristol Motor Speedway.  Great Clips will serve as the sponsor for the #32 truck at Bristol Motor Speedway.  Great Clips has a long history with team owner Todd Braun that dates back to Todd’s days as the owner of Braun Racing, an organization that competed in the NASCAR XFINITY Series from 2003 to 2010

Braun Motorsports has selected J.J. Haley to be behind the wheel of Braun Motorsports’ #32 truck for the UNOH 200 presented by Zloop on Wednesday, August 19.  Haley gears up to make his first-career NCWTS start for Braun Motorsports at Bristol.   This will mark the second time the Indiana native will race on the World’s Fastest Half Mile. Earlier this season, the 16-year-old competed in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East event, bringing home a top-10 finish.

Throughout 2015, Haley has competed full-time in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East with HScott Motorsports with Justin Marks, bringing home four top-five and seven top-10 finishes through ten races. Haley has also competed in two ARCA events with Braun Motorsports to date this season, along with select TransAM races for the organization.

Braun Motorsports intends to run the #32 Great Clips Chevy in two additional NCWTS events this season. Haley will be back at the wheel for the team at Martinsville Speedway in October and Phoenix International Raceway in November.

It is great to see Todd Braun, and Braun Motorsports, coming back into one of the three touring series of NASCAR.  For those who may not remember Braun Racing in the former Busch Series, one of his long employed drivers was the late Jason Lefler.  Braun Racing was pruchased by Steve Turner, and then was partnered by Harry Scott, Jr., changing the race team name to Turner Scott.  Three seasons ago Harry Scott, Jr. purchased Phoenix Racing, the Sprint Cup team owned by James Finch, and changed the name to HScott Motorsports.
