Sydney Sprintcar Racer set for Debut on NASCAR Grand Stage

Australian Sprintcar Racer Max Johnston is set to create history when he competes in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Event at Eldora Speedway.

While a few Aussie’s have raced in NASCAR such as Marcos Ambrose and Owen Kelly and many more have raced at the Famed Eldora Speedway, none have done both at the same time.

MAX JOHNSTON will create history when he makes his NASCAR debut with Brandt professional agriculture and young's motorsports at Eldora.

BRANDT, a leading agriculture retailer and manufacturer of agricultural specialty products, will join Young's Motorsports with Johnston, for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Eldora Speedway where  Johnston will pilot the 02 BRANDT Professional Agriculture Chevy Silverado for the July 19th prime time event.

Joining BRANDT on the truck will be Australian distribution partners BARMAC, a division of Amgrow Australia Pty Ltd, and GLOBE Growing Solutions.

"We are excited to put Max behind the wheel for his NASCAR Truck Series debut as a representative of BRANDT both here and in Australia, said Rick Brandt, President & CEO of BRANDT.  "The Eldora Speedway race is one of a kind and we look forward to seeing Max's skills on the dirt track."

"I'm humbled at the opportunity to race in one of NASCAR's top tier series with BRANDT Professional Agriculture and Young's Motorsports,” said Max Johnston. “Hard work and never giving up is something I live by and I want to apply that as I make my NASCAR debut"

No doubt there will be many keen Aussie fans watching the prestigious event now that there is a direct Aussie involvement.

Highline Magazine and The Motorsport Channel wishes Johnston great success on his NASCAR and Eldora debut.
