Sean Becker Wins His First Dave Bradway Jr. Memorial at Chico By: Troy Hennig - (Chico, CA 5-13-06)…Sometimes things are just meant to be. Two months before the racing season started in California the defending King of California Sean Becker was without a ride for the 2006 campaign. At the same time, Tom Fisher and Kyle Main of Grass Valley, CA were in the process of looking for a driver and deciding their plans for the season. The Grass Valley team wanted to run a limited schedule based around Silver Dollar Speedway’s schedule. Becker was focused on trying to defend his title. Luckily for the two parties involved, they were able to meet in the middle and join forces. It so far has started out better than a Hollywood feel-good script. The team had already won the opening two nights of point racing at Silver Dollar Speedway but that was nothing compared to what this team accomplished tonight. In only their fifth race together as a team Becker drove the #35m JEI chassis sponsored by Cherry St. Mini Storage, A1A Muffler, Rolling Hills Reality and Lee Watson Inc. into victory lane and became a first time winner of the Dave Bradway Jr. Memorial. Becker and team took home roughly $5500 for the win consisting of the $3,000 regular payday win, an extra grand from JPM Motorsports and extra lap money bonus that are a tradition during the Bradway Jr. event. A record 52 Golden State Series King of California sprint cars entered the Dave Bradway Jr. Memorial event. (Read it all)

Sean Becker "Upsets" Golden Staters at Chico - By Bobby Gerould, 07/25/03, Chico, CA. …Sean Becker was a 2002 National Sprint Car Poll Rookie of the Year nominee, and he'd already won a race at Chico in their points series this season. Accomplishments like that can create a buzz in the pits. Friday night, with a "ten" inversion for the feature, Becker was the pole-sitter for the Golden State Challenge 30-lap feature. Many veteran observers wondered aloud if Becker could take his #23 JB/Kistler to the winners circle versus deeper, stronger competition and with a bigger purse on the line.

...Sean Becker. Remember that name. Sean has been racing at Chico every Friday night in the 410 sprint car class. Becker, who lives in Sacramento, has deep Chico roots, with family members winning in both stock cars, and sprint cars. The kid is a hero in the 'outlaw kart' classes in Northern California, and now consistent top-five runs in the sprint car at Chico have the racing community on notice. Becker has eight top-10 runs, one win, and two quick-time efforts in his rookie year at Silver Dollar. Andy Forsberg said, “Sean’s got as much talent as anyone who’s come around our sport in the last five years. He’s gotten too good too quick.”
