Ed Martin Auto Group Super Truck veteran Tony Broyles enters the upcoming 2005 season with a mission of challenging for the division championship. He will continue to drive his familiar red No. 27 in the premier division at Anderson Speedway.

“Our goals are to challenge for the Super Truck title this season,” said Tony Broyles. “I think being consistent every week and finishing as many races as possible are keys to battling for the championship. We have our Super Truck ready to go and we are looking forward to the season opener,” added Broyles.

In 2004, Broyles competed on a part-time basis in the Ed Martin Auto Group Super Truck division. He placed 11th in the final points tally, collecting two feature victories, one fast time, five top-five finishes and seven top 10s.

The season began on a great note for Broyles, as he won the season-opening event on Saturday, April 3. He then posted finishes of sixth and third in the next two features. On May 15, Broyles was unable to take the green flag in the feature event. The following week, during spring championships, the New Castle racer responded with winning the 50-lap event, holding off Josh Burton in a great late-race battle.

After competing in the June 5 event, Broyles didn’t start another Ed Martin Auto Group Super Truck feature until the J.D. Byrider 150 on August 28. After rain showers forced the event to be made official on the 75th circuit, Broyles was credited with fourth-place honors. He completed the 2004 season with three consecutive top-10 finishes including a runner-up finish during season championships on September 25.

For the 2005 season, Broyles will continue to partner with his brother Terry in their quest for the Super Truck championship. They have worked together in racing for some 20-year stint.

“Tony is one of those drivers that can win with anything,” said Terry Broyles. “He has a tremendous amount of driving ability. He can drive the wheels off any type of racecar. I have learned a lot about these Trucks the previous few years and coupled with Tony’s driving ability, we have a great chance to challenge for the title.”

The Ed Martin Auto Group Super Trucks begin their 2005 racing season at Anderson Speedway on Saturday, April 2, during season-opening night for the regular Saturday Night divisions.
