Brooke Storer Eyes First Pensacola Victory

Storer was the winningest driver in Florida’s Wheelman Racing Series in 2020

Brooke Storer is one of the most recognizable names in Outlaw Sportsman racing in Florida, having won multiple races in the competitive and entertaining Wheelman Racing Series in the Sunshine State.  Now, she’s hoping to score the biggest win of her racing career.

Storer, 22, from Zephyrhills, Florida, has won over 150 races and eight championships throughout her racing career – and has even competed in Late Model Stock Cars in the Carolinas.  This weekend, she is chasing her first career Five Flags Speedway feature win in the final preliminary feature race before Sunday’s marquee event.

“Winning the Outlaw race at the Snowball Derby would be huge,” Storer told Short Track Scene.  “My team and I have worked really hard to get where we are and have had a great season, so winning this weekend would definitely make 2020 the best season of my career.”

Storer has racked up six wins in the Wheelman Racing Series and won more races than any other driver in the tour in 2020 – picking up victories across the state of Florida.  Each victory is an accomplishment of its own in the ultra-competitive series that often features 20+ car fields.

“The Wheelman Series has been great since we started running it a few years ago,” Storer said.  “The amount of talent in that field has made me a much better driver, along with at least 22 cars showing up every race.  So, to be able to be as competitive as we are and have five wins this season is something to be proud of.  There are a lot of things I like about the series.  John Chance does a really good job directing the races and also when he techs the cars, he makes sure everyone is on a fair playing field.”

While Storer enjoys racing in the series, she hopes to continue progressing and moving up the ranks in racing.  In 2019, she was a part of NASCAR’s Drive for Diversity and raced with Rev Racing in a Late Model Stock Car in the Carolinas, and she hopes to eventually move into a Pro Late Model or Super Late Model in 2021.

“My future goals are definitely to make it into the top tiers of racing,” Storer commented.  “Right now, I’m focused on getting more seat time in Pro and Super Late Models next season.”

While her goal is to run in Super Late Models, a return to Late Model Stock Cars is not out of the equation.

“I would definitely like to run more Late Model Stock Car races,” Storer said.  “I had a lot of fun in those cars and the tracks they go to.”

Entering Saturday’s event, Storer’s career best result at Five Flags Speedway is a sixth-place finish.elman

Saturday’s Outlaw Sportsman feature will be held immediately following the conclusion of the Allen Turner Hyundai Snowflake 100 and will be broadcast live on Speed51.TV.
