FOURWIDE PR / Brett Haas Racing

When the lid is lifted on the 2020 Lebanon Valley Speedway big-block Modified season, the 2019 small-block Modified championship runner-up, Brett Haas, will be embarking on his maiden voyage as a full time big-block driver at The Valley of Speed.

Haas out of Pittsfield, Mass., will be running in both big and small-block Modified classes, and looks to pick up where he left off in ‘19, a season in which he collected three wins and finished in the top five 82% of the season.

Brett Haas Reflects On Career Season At Lebanon Valley Speedway

FROM BRETT HAAS – “I am happy to announce that we have the opportunity to compete in the legendary big-block Modified class at Lebanon Valley Speedway. This is something I always dreamed about when I walked through the gates of Lebanon Valley Speedway and now that dream is becoming a reality. The opportunity to compete with the likes of Kenny Tremont, JR Heffner, Keith Flach, Eddie Marshall, and some of the other notable drivers to grace Lebanon Valley in one of the most prominent classes in the Northeast is truly a humbling and overwhelming feeling. After coming off of one of our most successful years in the small-block class, things seemed to fall into place when we bought a second Bicknell chassis.

Our goal has always been to run in this division, but it has never seemed to pan out, especially with how expensive the class is to run at a competitive level. I firmly believe the timing is now right, and our small-block program was where it needed to be this past year, so I feel confident in every single one of my crew members in helping to make our big-block program equally as good as the small-block program.

We recently had a team meeting to discuss the time and dedication that is going to be needed in order to be competitive in both classes. They are fully committed and excited, and I’m beyond lucky to have their support. The motor that we will be running will be the affordable 525 cubic inch motor, which is the brainchild of Howard Commander and Mike Petrucci, and I have to thank both of them for helping to make this happen. This new endeavor will take time for our team to adjust to the workload of two cars at the track and weekly maintenance. I will also have a learning curve to adjust with the additional horsepower.  We are all up for this exciting challenge!

I’d like to end by thanking all of my entire crew and family for being so supportive. I’d also like to thank all of my marketing partners that have supported our small-block program, many of which have decided to come back on board for the 2020 season.

Starting this big-block program wouldn’t be possible without the support of many people. I would especially like to thank Mark Intelisano, owner and operator of MJI Transport, and Dave Prime Jr., owner of Mac Tools, for stepping up with us.

If anyone is interested in partnering with our team for the upcoming season, please feel free to contact us at We are extremely excited for the 2020 season at Lebanon Valley Speedway, and we cannot wait to hit the high banks in the spring!”
