TULSA, Okla. (February 11, 2016) After running close to home in 2015, Missouri's Brad Loyet confirmed to officials with the American Sprint Car Series that he will be back on the road in 2016 with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network.

"We took a year and had our fun, and it was a good thing, but I like having that carrot in front of my face," said Loyet about returning to the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour. "We've got good cars, good engines, and I've got good guys with me, so I'm ready to get out and give it another shot."

On coming back in 2016, Loyet stated, "We've got quite a few things going on right now, and the way the schedule work out is a benefit, and that's one of the things that turned me to it, plus when we're not on the road, there's five nights a Sedalia with the Warrior Region that pay well that we can go run, and that works out good, plus I've still got a fresh 410cid in the shed to go race."

Taking the road in the familiar orange Loyet Motorsports No. o5, Brad commented on the benefit of being able to again race with family, "We're a tight-knit team across the board. We're in the RV with my Dad. We kind of stay to ourselves a little bit, but we have probably more fun than anyone else, but were serious and that's what it takes to win a championship and getting to run up and down the road with my dad every weekend, I'm pretty excited."

While Loyet's time at National Tour events were limited in 2015, seven appearances, yielded just as many top-five runs, as well as a victory in the Hockett/McMillin Memorial at the Lucas Oil Speedway. With momentum going into 2016, Loyet is determined to walk out with a championship.

"We're coming out swinging. We led this deal before all the way to the last night and came up short. That's not going to happen again. We are very motivated to win a lot of money this season."

The 2016 season is the fourth time that Brad has chased the Lucas Oil ASCS National Championship since 2012.

Brad Loyet will again utilize Maxim Chassis with J&D Performance under the bonnet. Brad would like to first and foremost thank his family for their support as well as his sponsors: Vacuworx Global, Loyet Landscaping, Merrimac Heights Collision Center, HRP, Rod End Supply, Weld Wheels, and Speedway Motors.
