Brad Mueller, born in Random Lake, WI, is a former NASCAR driver. He competed in both the Busch Series and Craftsman Truck Series. He currently races a dirt late model at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wisconsin as of 2009.
Local track career prior to NASCAR startsEdit
He raced a dirt sportsman car (now equivalent to limited late model) at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds. He changed to asphalt racing in late models at Slinger Super Speedway before his national career began. After a nasty crash in 2006, Brad rebuilt, retooled and returned to Slinger in 2007 winning a couple features in limited appearances.
Craftsman Truck SeriesEdit
Mueller made his debut in 1999, running for his own team at Milwaukee. He started that event in 32nd and finished 27th. That run earned him another race, this time at ORP. He started and finished that race in 25th.
Mueller and his own #89 team returned to Milwaukee in 2000, where he better his 1999 runs. He started 29th but finished 20th, five laps off the pace.
Mueller's last race turned out to be his best. He started the 2001 Milwaukee race for Brevak Racing in 24th place, his best career start. He then moved slowly upwards, eventually finishing 15th, his best career showing.
Mueller only made one start in this series, coming in 2002. It was a start and park effort for Havill-Spoerl. He started the 2002 race at Milwaukee in 43rd and finished there after pulling out after nine laps.
Return to local driverEdit
After his national exposure, he returned to racing asphalt late models before returning to dirt.
In 2007, Brad returned to Asphalt Super Late Model Racing, winning in his first attempt at Slinger Speedway in the Miller Lite 120, also competing in the ASA Midwest Tour. Starting in 2009, he raced a dirt late model at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds. He won the 2011 dirt late model championship at the track. As of 2013, he continues to primarily race dirt late models with an occasional asphalt super late model start.
