Two drivers with storied careers around these parts have been on top of their games in Delaware this year, despite being in what has to be the later stages of their careers. Old Guys Rule!
Kenny Brightbill was one of the best modified racers ever at the old Reading Fairgrounds before it closed in 1979, and continued to be a big modified winner wherever those cars raced for many years. When the modifieds raced at Susquehanna during the 1990s and early 2000s, Brightbill was the big winner, with 33 small-block wins (tops in that class) and four big-block wins (again tops in that class).
After a few off years, Brightbill picked up a big-block modified ride in Delaware this season and he already has five wins there. Brightbill is 62.
But that "ain't nothin,'" as they say. In Delaware's late-model class, a guy named Hal Browning has been winning almost as much as Brightbill. The first local win on record for Hal Browning came in 1964 at Lincoln.
He was a winner in this area in the "bugs" and sprint cars before he moved from his Baltimore area home to Delaware, where he began racing modifieds and winning. Later he moved into late models and came back to the area to win at Lincoln during the 1980s. He's still at it, and has won at least twice this season. Hal Browning, may look like he's 50, but he's well past his 70th birthday.
