Mooresville, NC | February 1st, 2021
The Southeast Super Truck Series has officially released its schedule for the upcoming race season. Venturing to seven different racetracks across a 12 race schedule, Brett Suggs is excited and optimistic for the opportunity to take on a few new race tracks this year.
The season makes its premiere on March 27th at the .4 mile paperclip oval in Anderson, South Carolina at Anderson Motor Speedway. Coming off a 6th place finish last race at AMS, Brett is excited to head back to the track for the season opener of 2021.
"I'm definitely ready to get back out there for the year. We have been limited this offseason at how much work we could get done on the truck based on the funds and resources available, but I'm hopeful that we can secure the necessary partnerships to get the truck together and to make the first race of the season."
After Anderson, the next stop for the 2021 SEST campaign leads to Tri-County Speedway on April 10th. After suffering from some lap one carnage in the last race of 2020, Suggs is looking to redeem himself and show the speed he and the team have been developing all year.
"It was a real bummer to go out so early in the last race of the year [last season]. We were quick in practice, solid in qualifying, and I felt like we had a truck that was more than capable of running inside the top five, if not contending to win both twin 40s. To have to nearly start from scratch on the truck this year is a shame, but we made a ton of gains in the setup department and gained a whole lot of knowledge that we can apply for this year."
Other notables on the season include race three at Caraway Speedway on April 24th. Although this will be Brett's first time at Caraway in a Super Truck, his last visit to the track resulted in a surprise victory with the Allison Legacy Series in 2018. The win came after contact from the leaders on the last lap allowed Suggs to slip by in the #33 and take home the victory.
Additionally to the 2021 schedule includes a visit to Lonesome Pine Raceway on May 22nd. Following LPR is Kingsport Speedway on June 19th and Tri-County on July 10th. Brett's most anticipated race of the schedule is July 17th at Motor Mile Speedway. The team is looking to etch Brett's name into history as the first winner of the SEST series at the infamous Motor Mile, but it will take a group effort to pull that off against the most competitive season in recent years.
Closing out the second half of the season are races at Anderson on August 7th, an unannounced track for August 28th, Anderson again on September 25th, Dillon Motor Speedway on October 9th, and the 2021 season finale headed back to Tri-County Speedway on October 23rd. With some great tracks lined up at the end of the season, Brett and the entire BSRM team is looking to have a breakthrough year in the Super Truck. Dillon is another track on the list where Brett has found victory lane in the Allison Legacy Series, so he has high expectations heading there in the fall.
"I believe this year is shaping up to be a competitive season as we travel to a variety of different race tracks. No two tracks race the same, so it'll be interesting to see how we can adapt to some of the new speedways that we haven't been to in the truck yet, like Caraway and Dillon, and for the tracks we have never been to like Lonesome Pine and Motor Mile. If we can assemble the right group of partners to assist us in getting the task done, I know we can be in contention each and every race to battle up front and have a shot at winning. It'll be my third year in the series, this is our time."
