Corey Day has been selected as the winner of the annual Brady Bacon Baton Award.
Beginning in 2017, Brady Bacon has chosen a young driver that he sees as a future star in motorsports to receive the award. For 2022, the four-time USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car champion has elected Day as the recipient.
A native of Clovis, Calif., Day accumulated four Northern Auto Racing Club (NARC) victories, which tied him with series champion Dominic Scelzi for wins with the 410 west coast sprints last season. Success also came in the 360 sprints at Stockton and Hanford. Proving to be a versatile driver, Day will be returning to Tulsa in January for the 38th annual Chili Bowl Nationals as a driver for Matt Wood Racing.
He scored Rookie of the Year in the 2022 A feature.
Previous winners of the Brady Bacon Baton Award are Giovanni “Gio” Scelzi (2017), Jason “J-Mac” McDougal (2018), Michael “Buddy” Kofoid (2019), Cannon McIntosh (2020) and Ryan Timms (2021).
