Sweet Headlines All-HammerDown! Team

ROCKLIN, Calif. – has named the 2019 All-HammerDown! Team.

Brad Sweet, the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series champion, heads the list of the 40 driver team.

The All-HammerDown! Team includes drivers that finished in the top 40 in’s, Racers’ Racing Series point standings. Points are awarded for a 60-race schedule of big-race events. Drivers must finish in the top 11 positions in a feature to score points. This year there were 165 drivers that earned points, but only the top 40 receive All-HammerDown! status.

“I think it’s really cool that HammerDown! sets up a true racer’s racing series,” said Sweet, the champion of the Racer’s Racing Series. “I know it doesn’t pay money or a big trophy but it’s all about pride. I have always watched the Racer’s Racing Series points and have always wanted to win it, so I’m pumped the last two years in a row that I have been able to hold the title.”

Two drivers continued their streak of making the All-HammerDown! Team in each of the 17 years since the honor was created in 2003: Daryn Pittman and Donny Schatz.

Four drivers made the All-HammerDown! team for the first time in their careers: Ryan Bernal, Logan Seavey, Logan Wagner and Brock Zearfoss. The age range of the 40-driver team goes from Giovanni Scelzi at age 18 to Jac Haudenschild at age 61.
