After competing on a part-time basis with the 2004 Ed Martin Auto Group Super Trucks at Anderson Speedway, Indianapolis’ Scott Brooks is planning a full-time schedule in 2005. Brooks hopes to build upon limited success in 2004 with challenging for the division crown this year.

“We really enjoy racing at Anderson Speedway in the Super Truck division,” said Scott Brooks. “Last year we were able to put together some good finishes when we didn’t have any engine troubles. This season, we are hoping to finish a lot more races and compete all season long.”

In 2004, Brooks placed 16th in the final Ed Martin Auto Group Super Truck point standings. His season highlight was his first career Super Truck victory at Anderson Speedway on Saturday, June 5. To earn that victory he had to fend off challenges from Ronnie Rose, Josh Burton, Mike Mendenhall and two-time division champion Joe Beaver.

Brooks also recorded four top-five finishes and five top 10s in 2004. He ranked fifth among rookies in the final DT’S R Bar Rookie of the Year standings.

Prior to racing at Anderson, Brooks was a regular fixture on the Champion Auto Racing Series Super Truck tour, grabbing Rookie of the Year honors in 1999 and scoring the series driving title in 2001. In his championship season, he collected three feature victories.

Brooks follows in the footsteps of his father, who competed at Anderson Speedway in the Anderson 400 and made additional appearances in Late Models around Midwestern tracks.

In 2005, Brooks will continue to pilot the No. 70 Super Truck owned by his father Larry. They will carry sponsorship from Big T Auto Salvage and Indy Inspection.

The Ed Martin Auto Group Super Trucks begin the 2005 season at Anderson Speedway on Saturday, April 2.
