BRETT MICHALSKI’S RACING JOURNEY

JR Racing

Brett began racing at a young age, he started in Quarter Midgets at Oaklane Speedway in Trumbauserville, PA. Throughout his quarter midget career he traveled up and down the east coast, along with earning track records, sponsor cup wins and more. At the age of 13 Brett outgrew Quarter Midgets which led him to 270 micro sprints. His career in 270’s was short lived as he moved up to the 600 micro sprints just one year later.

In 2010 Brett began running both winged and wingless classes, quickly excelling in the wingless class he made a decision to put his focus there. In 2011 he earned wins at Kutztown and Hamlin Speedways, also earning himself a points championship at Hamlin Speedway. Then in 2012 Brett opened up the season with winning at Kutztown Speedway in their opener the Goldie Meitzler.

After switching from RTS Chassis to Hyper Chassis in 2013, Brett found himself with more career wins then before. It was a great year in the books. Brett focused more on the 600 micro wingless class while still running the winged class periodically. Brett’s career in the 600 micro sprints has steadily grown and gained him attention over the years. 2014 was a record breaking year for Brett as he closed the season with 14 wins and became Airport Speedways Track Champion.

As the season for 2015 racing began, Brett made the decision to sell the 600 micro sprint and start a new racing career in a 360 Sprint Car. 2017 was year number 2 with the 360 sprint car while running the URC schedule, it brought a lot of learning. Entering 2018 with the 410 sprint car running at Lincoln Speedway, a few World of Outlaw races, along with a few runs at BAPS Motor Speedway. 2019 was an amazing year for Brett when on June 9 he earned his first 410 career win at Lincoln Speedway.

Going into the 2020 season Brett and the team have their sights set high and are ready for more victories! You can catch them racing every weekend throughout central PA at Lincoln, Williams Grove, Port Royal, BAPS, Grandview, Bridgeport Speedway in New Jersey, and other special shows!
