After what seemed like an improbable win in the 2015 SBS Classic 75 where the Haynes Racing Team shocked the crowd by pulling off one of the biggest upsets in SBS Classic 75, Bryan L Haynes II and the Haynes Racing team will return to action at Oswego Speedway before the end of the regular season. This year the Haynes brothers will debut a brand new car in with the hope of capturing lightning in a bottle once again.
The new car is a combined effort and a brain child of Brad Haynes. The car itself has been in the Haynes Racing stable for many years now but will be unrecognizable to the untrained eye. The cage is one of the oldest in the class and old NICHOLS cage, The right rear is a Hedger Chassis copy fabricated by Master Fabricator Dalton Doyle, the left rear is a design by Brad, the front clip is a 2016 FFB, fabricated by Dan Dennie and Rob Pullen, and the body built by Dave Cliff Sr. This car brings together all the best elements from all the cars the Haynes Racing Team has run through the years.
“It is really an exciting car because nobody has ever done this, it is really great to have so many of my peers and their teams involved in building and designing this car” says Bryan.
The Haynes Racing Team has also upgraded its engine program by commissioning Russ Marsden to build an entirely new power plant for the new car. After giving Russ his first Classic win as an engine builder last year it was a no brainer that the team would turn to him to power the new #86 SBS.
Look for the new car to hit the track before the last race of the regular season as the team gets dialed in to defend its Classic Title.
As in years past the team is looking for sponsors heading into Classic Weekend. “Last year we were incredibly successful soliciting sponsors of a tire(s) or fuel, we were able to have multiple individuals and businesses step up and cover our tires and fuel, we hope to do that again” said Bryan.
People looking to sponsor can use the “Donate” button on the Haynes Racing website or contact Bryan or Brad. The team is also selling t-shirts and hats with the proceeds going directly to tires and fuel. The Haynes Racing Team thanks all the fans for their support.
See you at the track!
