Racecar Driver Braden Heats Up ARCA Series

Posted: Updated:

Wheeling's Travis Braden is on quite a roll.

The young, racecar driver, has recently won back-to-back races in Michigan and Winchester, Indiana on the ARCA/CRA Super Series.

Braden,19, a second-year engineering student at West Virginia University, has been driving his 01 car with a WVU blue-and-gold paint scheme, with permission from the university.

He took the checkered flag at Berlin Raceway, in Marne, Michigan, before winning again at Winchester Speedway. He credits his experience at those tracks, and a revamped crew, as the reasons for his recent surge to the top of the series points standings.

Braden won trophies and $3,000 at each race.
