OREGON - After salvaging a top 15 finish after an issue-filled race in Michigan last Friday, Travis Braden, driver for RFMS racing, is keeping an eye on the big picture and looking forward to the Herr's Potato Chips 200 at Madison International Speedway in Oregon, Wisconsin.
"We had some bad luck in Michigan with an electrical problem that got us 2 laps down and then a deflated tire, but we were still able to finish 12th in a very competitive race," Braden said. "We're still in the top 10 in Owner's points and 4th in Driver's points, and realistically not that far out of reach still. It's only race #9 of 20. We have a lot of racing left, and when our fortune turns around a little bit, good things are likely to come. Thanks to the commitment from RFMS Racing and our crew, I believe we are improving from a competition standpoint each week still, and no one is settling. We get another shot at it this Friday in Wiscoinsin."

Though this will be his first full season in ARCA, Braden is no stranger to the racing world. Braden’s passion for the sport of racing runs as deep as the valleys of the Appalachian Mountains. At tracks in Columbus and Xenia, Ohio, Travis secured more than 100 victories before he was 13, and at age 17 he notched 10 victories and was crowned the Columbus track champion, the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series State Champion and the NWASS National Rookie of the Year – all before graduating from high school.
Braden is a two-time ARCA/CRA Super Series Champion, and is now looking forward to 2018, where he'll work hard to emerge as a driving force in the ARCA Racing Series and beyond.
