Brawley, CA: Broc Dickerson set lofty goals in 2015. The versatile and talented young racer competed in multiple series, driving vastly different race vehicles. Winning a single championship takes 100% commitment. Broc’s goal was to win six. Surely, nobody could pull off such a feat; not even Broc, but five out of six is not bad. When you are chasing a championship, even minute details become incredibly significant. The logistics, preparation, determination, and driving talent, needed to pull off five championships, are incomprehensible to anyone outside a few of the most accomplished racers on the planet. The single championship goal that was not met still resulted in a third place podium.
