Brad Furr Wins Fall Nationals at Chico By: Troy Hennig (Chico, CA 10-05-03)…Pleasanton’s Brad Furr passed Tim Kaeding on lap 23 to take the lead of the 40 lap main event and went on to easily pick up his first ever Fall Nationals Championship on Saturday night. After passing Kaeding, Furr led the final 17 laps with a comfortable margin of victory. For his efforts Furr collected the handsome $4,000 payday. Interviewed by infield announcer, Free Willy, Furr explained, “The crew did all the work and I managed not to get passed tonight.” He continued by giving support to his fellow racers, “I think this 360 thing is just as competitive as the 410’s and tonight it was a lot of fun racing with them.” Second on the podium was Rocketville, NC driver Roger Crockett. What a weekend for Crockett as he won the 30 lap main event on Thursday night and finished second tonight. “Overall it was a good weekend for me and the team. We started going real good near the end of the race but there was just too many lapped cars between me and Brad. Brad did a good job tonight.” (read it all)

Brad Furr To Race for Golden State Championship - 02/23/03 - Pleasanton, CA. ...Brad Furr of Pleasanton will return to the Golden State Challenge in 2003. Furr has spent the past three seasons running internationally with the World of Outlaws (USA), and the World Series Sprint Cars (Australia). Furr's beautiful #2 Eagle, owned by his father Randy, has become one of the fastest sprint cars in the world. 2002 WoO Mechanic of the Year, Mike Harper will again spin the wrenches for the Sanmina-SCI #2. Although Furr gained valuable experience in the last three years of traveling, he returns to California having never won a main event under the Golden State sanction. That seems likely to change in 2003, now that Furr is an accomplished driver that finished 8th in the World of Outlaws point standings last season. Furr, before he left to tour, was voted as one of the 40 most exciting drivers in the 40 year history of the former NARC series. He will be in action at the Mini Gold Cup, March 7th and 8th at Chico's Silver Dollar Speedway. The Golden State Challenge in 2003 will contest 22 events for winged 410 sprint cars. Hoosier Tires, CL Bryant Racing Fuels, and BR MotorSports are backers of the series. www.GoldenStateChallenge.com

Furr Wins at Port Royal as Haudenschild Runs Out of Fuel By Richard Day PORT ROYAL, PA (September 29) – Jac Haudenschild’s loss was Brad Furr’s gain Sunday at Port Royal Speedway. "The Wild Child" was 1 ˝ laps from his third Pennzoil World of Outlaws Series "A" Feature victory of the season when the #5 Wirtgen Maxim ran out of fuel. Furr, who chased Haudenschild through four cautions and 28 ˝ laps, restarted ahead of the 24-car field and won his third "A" Feature of the year. "I can’t believe it!" Furr yelled to the capacity crowd. "I just stayed in it and tried to keep the car rolling around the track. It’s too bad for Jac. He ran a great race, but I’ll take it any way I can get it. We lost a cylinder around lap six or seven, and it seemed to get a little worse after that (18th-lap) red flag. I was worried that it wouldn’t even get up to speed on the restart, and then that last lap I just tried to make my car as wide as I could and weave my way through to the finish." (read it all)
