How did you start racing?
Growing up my dad worked with Ryan Tedesco and his racing team. I was always around racing and always in the garage with them. So when I was old enouph to race compacts (14 years old) I figured I would try it out and now that's all I ever want to do.

What do you like about racing?
The most enjoyable thing about racing to me is being there with friends and family. Also having a good race without tearing equipment up


What division and tracks do you race at?

I race compacts. I race at Midvale Speedway.  I've been to Barberton Speedway a few times and I go to Lorain County Speedway once a year for their Halloween Festival of Speed at the end of each year.


What would you tell someone new to help them?
I would say that its not all about winning the race on the first lap just go out their and pick your moves wisely and proficient

Braden's Favorites

Tv Show- Ridiculousness

What do you do when your not racing?
When I'm not racing Im usually fishing or working on the race car getting it prepared for the next week
