In 2009 when we first met with young Bradley Morris it was regarding his impressive resume. At the time Morris was a 12-year-old competitor with a race catalog already worthy of conversation. He raced a trophy kart with a 450cc engine and 18 inches of travel back then, and we predicted "With such an impressive resume, so early in his racing career, Bradley Morris will definitely be the trophy kart racer to watch."

Bradley Morris has repeatedly made good on that forecast in very gigantic ways, confirming that this off-road wunderkind is indeed the genuine article. Admittedly though, we under-shot our prediction, we would have been more accurate had we said, "Morris is an electrifying race force to reckon with, and there's no telling what this meteoric talent is capable of in the future."

Recently we got another big-time indication of what the K&N kid is capable of accomplishing, when for second year in a row, Bradley Morris lit up the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series at Glen Helen Raceway by flat-out owning the competition and inspiring some to chant - "Welcome to Morrisville." Morris swept both rounds in the Pro Lites, and he won round 10 in the Pro Buggy.

"Sweeping Prolite two years in a row is awesome," Morris said. "I hope to take this momentum and carry it through the rest of the season. Danny Ebberts and the rest of my team had the truck dialed and I just had to keep the truck out front. We test a lot at Glen Helen and the home crowd gets me pumped."

The immensely popular Pro Lite Unlimited class continues to grow exponentially each year since the integration of the spec V8 motor. Three of the youngest and most thrilling racers in the class today are Bradley Morris, RJ Anderson, and Sheldon Creed. In round 9 it was Anderson and Bradley Morris dueling it out at the head of the field that brought the crowds to their feet. And when the checkered flag declared it was over, Bradley Morris lead the way, followed by Anderson and Creed.

For round 10 it was Bradley Morris, Anderson and Creed lined up at the front of the field once again, totally fired-up for an even more entertaining race than the last. After a number of more yellow flags, two of which found Creed upside down but unhurt, Creed ultimately had to retire. Once racing resumed Morris continued to run away with the round 10 contest, followed not too closely by Casey Currie and Brian Deegan, who were deeply involved in a battle of their own. When the checkered flag waved off this contest, Bradley Morris had absolutely owned the entire twenty-truck field once more, with Currie and Deegan following him in this time.

Now just 16, and as proud as any regular teenager to have recently gotten his driver's license, Bradley Morris says his friends at school think it's "cool" that he's a raising-star racer. "They always let me know when I'm on TV and ask how I did after race weekends," he says. When it comes to explaining his racing mindset Morris keeps it efficiently simple as well. "The competition is tough, young or old they all want to win. I don't try to think about who's behind me, I just race my race and try to keep my truck up front. Finishing off the rest of the season strong and trying to get dad to buy me a Pro 2 or 4," is how Bradley Morris plans to remain focused for the remainder of the series.
