Nassau, NY- (October 21, 2014) Matt Pappa is looking to end his sophomore campaign behind the wheel of his Brett Hearn Racing Enterprises No. 20 Jr. on a high note this coming weekend at the Orange County Fairgrounds Speedway in Middletown, NY. Pappa is coming off a strong Top 5 finish at the Fulton Speedway a few weeks back and has high hopes for his return to Orange County.
“I actually got to test at Middletown before the season,” stated Pappa. “We had a great test and I know that will help me this weekend. I like the track and think we will have a great run.”
Pappa finished 17th in his rookie season at the 2013 Eastern States weekend and feels that last year’s race will help him prepare for Friday night’s 50 lap sportsman main event.
“I learned so much during the race and Brett and I talked at great length about what I did right and where I can improve. I am really looking forward to the challenge.” added the senior at Columbia High School in Nassau, NY
Matt Pappa and Brett Hearn are completing their second full season as teammates and nothing would make Pappa happier than to experience victory lane at the hard clay of Orange County.“Brett is so good at Orange County, “exclaimed Matt. “It was actually this weekend in 2012 that I met Brett for the first time and got to spend the weekend with his team. That weekend Brett won both the small block and big block races…maybe this weekend TeamTwenty can make it a clean sweep.”
