Owner & Driver
A Small Team
With A Big Vision
Even though the BHR team has humble beginnings at the Talladega short track, the team's goals have always been extraordinary. Beginning at the age of 7, Bret Holmes stepped onto the track as a driver and never looked back. From super late model to the truck series, Bret Holmes Racing has seen great success and has its sights set on winning a NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series championship.
Winning the 2020 ARCA Menard's Series Championship reassured the team that they were heading in the right direction. With each accomplishment and successful result, instead of satisfaction, the BHR team grew hungrier for more. This season, Bret and the team are hunting for their first truck series win, but they won't settle there. Bret Holmes Racing has proven to be a force to be reckoned with and will be a household name within the racing community for years to come.
From The Garage To The Track
Looking back to 2008, Bret became the Blue-Plate Championship at Talladega Raceway Park winning the championship with more than 17 wins.
A year later, he would take home the 2009 Gold-Plate Championship at TRP with more than 18 wins. In 2011, Bret would make the transition to dirt late models and compete in the Crate Late Model division at Talladega Short Track and Green Valley Speedway. It only took him a year to win the Crate Late Model Championship at Talladega Short Track, with two victories.
Two years after, in 2013, Bret moved up to the Super-Late Model division on dirt, racing in the Southern All-Stars series; finishing second in the point standings. He would go on to win Rookie of the Year honors and earn two victories in addition to setting the track record at Talladega Short Track. Following another two years of racing, Bret won the 2015 championship in the Pro Late Model division at Montgomery Motor Speedway.
A year later, in 2016, the BHR Race team was founded. Bret and his team won the Pro Late Model Championship at Five Flags Speedway in Pensacola, Florida in their first year, while also racing in seven ARCA races. Holmes finished inside the Top 10 six times and was named SCOTT Rookie of the Race at Nashville. Bret saw great success in ARCA.
Finishing 3rd in the final 2019 ARCA standings, earning eight Top-5 finishes, eighteen top-10 finishes, the S&S Volvo Laps Completed Award, and the CGS Imaging Four Crown Championship.
His greatest achievement to date would come only a year later, in 2020, winning the ARCA Menards Series Championship, CGS Imaging Four Crown Championship, the General Tire Superspeedway Challenge, and the S&S Volvo Laps Completed Award.
