People from Massachusetts are known for many things. Our spoken alphabet does not contain the letter “R”, we drink coffee during all hours of the day & night, and more than anything, we are passionate about our home teams.
Bacon Motorsport is one of the home teams that the car enthusiasts around here are truly passionate about. Why the name “Bacon”? you ask. Well, because that’s Bill Bacon’s last name of course! Now, truth be told, I have never met Bill in person. However, it seems as though everybody that I know is within 1 degree of separation of him. It’s truly amazing. I hang out with my friends – Bacon. I pick up a Craigslist transmission – More Bacon. I hop on Facebook to over-share my world – You guessed it, bigtime Bacon. Gearheads are talking, Bacon Motorsport is the word, and the automotive world is intently listening.
The Bacon Motorsport team competes in the Rally America Championship Series (Click that link and look at the current standings on the top left. Notice who #2 is). When I say “competes”, I mean it. The team has consistently placed in the top 3 throughout the 2010 racing season (….ok, fine, except once!). You may have even seen their team mentioned in USA Today a few days ago when they jumped ahead of the some of the more heavily funded competitors. That has got to feel good. Naturally, I was hoping to have the Bacon Motorsport Team at our 1A Auto Car Show on July 31st, but they will be competing in the Rally X-Games. Bummer for us, but DAAANG that is Awesome for them! I wish them nothing but continued success, because they deserve it, and we will be sure to keep tabs on them throughout the X-Games.
If Bacon Motorsport reads this > Good Luck! There are way more fans than you even realize rooting for you!
Now watch Bill in the Bacon Motorsport EVO tear up the track.
