SPARKS, Md. – Bridget Burgess gets her passion for driving from her mother Sarah. In fact, that’s where she gets her passion for everything that goes into driving: building, tuning and repairing cars to deliver peak performance on the track.
That passion is why the team at GEARWRENCH has decided to sponsor the BMI Racing team’s journey in the ARCA Menards Series West in 2021.
"They’re just relentless," said Rena Fiorello, Director of Brand Management for GEARWRENCH. "The intensity that they bring is contagious and it makes them easy to root for, easy to get behind.
"We’re really looking forward to watching Bridget grow as a driver and helping her every step of the way."
Bridget Burgess, 19, has been driving in the ARCA Menards Series West since 2019 with Sarah as crew chief.
Sarah Burgess is a former short course off-road racer herself, and her husband Adam serves as the on-track spotter.
The upcoming nine-race ARCA Menards Series West season starts March 12 and runs through November 11.
"I’ve grown up in an environment where both my parents are hands-on with tools," said Bridget Burgess, the only female racer who has announced intentions to run the full ARCA Menards Series West schedule. "I’m proud that GEARWRENCH recognizes this and is very supportive of my racing program in 2021 as I continue to chase my goals."
GEARWRENCH will serve as BMI Racing’s official tool sponsor, further expanding its racing program that includes NASCAR with Chip Ganassi Racing and driver Kurt Busch, Formula Drift with driver "Rad" Dan Burkett, and both Monster Energy Supercross and the Monster Energy Kawasaki race team.
