The Next Generation Of Bargers

June 9, 2014, 10:45 PM by Travis Fossing

The Next Generation Of Bargers
BRANDON, SD -

The Barger name is a familiar one at racetracks throughout KELOLAND.  Mark and Jon began racing in the early 1970's, and more than 40 years later, the next generation of Bargers is looking to continue the family tradition.

Nick and Nate Barger were introduced to the world of racing at a young age.

"My dad and my uncle started racing a long time ago, and my uncle was pretty good at sprint cars and my dad was raced street stock for many years," Nick Barger said.

"I was at the races every weekend as a kid, and it just kind of grew up to be me, I guess," Nate Barger said.

Despite being regulars at the racetrack, the Barger brothers are relatively inexperienced behind the wheel, and are learning the hard way.

"I've learned a lot from people wanting to fight with me and people getting angry with me," Nick said.

The Barger brothers enjoy their time together at the track, but often times don't have to leave the family to find a fight.

"It's a lot of fun.  A lot of fights.  We don't always get along very well, but we make it work out, and it goes ok.  I help him out a lot.  He helps me out a lot, and it's fun to do as a family," Nick said.

"It's a pleasure.  I wish we raced in the same class, maybe bang on each other a little bit, but we don't get much of that.  He's been helping me out too, by working on the car and telling me how I need to drive it," Nate said.

Sometimes it's better to "do as I say, not as I do".

I drove his car one time this year, and crashed it, and kind of made him a little angry at me, but it was fun," Nick said.

The Bargers often turn to dad for help, money, and more.

"Moral support, I guess.  He gives us the truck and trailer to get to the races every week, and does everything for us.  He doesn't work on our racecars very much, but he sure is a big help in us doing what we do," Nick said.

As the brothers get more comfortable behind the wheel, they'd also like to follow in the footsteps of Uncle Jon and race sprint cars.

"I'd like to start winning races in the B-Mod class, and maybe race sprint cars someday," Nick said.

"Because they're cool.  They're fast," Nate said.

Among the bits of advice Uncle Jon has passed on to Nate --- "don't hit the concrete wall".  Nate is currently running Hobby Stocks, while Nick is running with the B-mods.
