Stettler’s Brody Anderson gearing up to race his eighth year

Brody Anderson considers himself a third-generation racer. As he gets ready and prepares for this season, Anderson looks back on his seven years of racing.

“When I was 10 years old my father built me a four-cylinder race car, which I began to race at Edmonton International Raceway,” said Anderson.

And since then he has gone from strength to strength. In his career of seven years, Anderson has won the following, among others: Alberta XMS Tour 600 mini Sprint 2012: 3rd place overall (Rookie 12-year-old); Alberta XMS Tour 600 mini sprint 2013: 2nd place overall; Alberta XMS Tour 600 mini sprint 2014: 1st place overall division champion (Edmonton); Extreme Sprint Car Series 2014: 3rd fastest time set at Extreme Cup out of 35 cars; Central Alberta Race Ways 2015: two feature races, six heat race wins; World of Outlaws 2015: this class is a pro-division of Sprint Car Racing; Central Alberta Raceway’s: three feature wins 2016; Central Alberta Raceway’s: 14 heat race wins 2016; Extreme Cup 2016: fifth place overall; and Gold Cup 360 Series 2016: eighth place overall against some of the best in North America.

“The last year was a huge success for our race team,” said Anderson. “With many wins and lots of fun.”

This season, Anderson and his team are looking forward to supporting the local Alberta race tracks and gearing up more for next year.

“After I graduate from high school my plans are to join the American Sprint Car Series (ASCS) Frontier Region, which is an American group,” Anderson said. “By doing so I hope to get more recognition and bigger sponsors to help me get to my goal of racing full time with the World of Outlaws.”

According to Anderson, in a sport like racing, one always needs to be at the top of their game, so he works out five times a week and tries to keep himself in good shape.

“I would like to thank GT Hydraulic, Diverse Signs, and Boss Inspection for their support,” Anderson added. “. If it wasn’t for them, we wouldn’t be able to race and do what we love to do.”
