The Booze Brothers have been involved in racing since they were born. Their father, Charles Booze, Sr., built and raced cars as they were growing up, inspiring and mentoring his son's racing efforts.

Charlie Jr. began his professional career with a green 4-door Torino that led him to win the 1997 NMCA Top Stock World Championship. While assisting his brother throughout the season, Brian became interested in the Pro-Nostalgia class. Unfortunately, both classes were phased out of the organization that year, so the team moved to the newly created NSCA organization to run Brian's 1962 Galaxie, Pale Rider .

After a few years, they began seeing consistent success and were able to capture the World Championship in 2000. They continued to dominate the class in 2001 and 2002, setting and resetting the e.t. and mph records, breaking the 8 second barrier, and achieving Brian's Triple Championships in that field.

Meanwhile, Brian had the itch to get into Mustang racing and had even purchased a chassis. It was put on the back burner when he received a call from Kansas City business owner, Joe Johnston, asking him to drive his Hot Street Mustang in the 2002 NMRA season. With Brian driving and Charlie tuning the engine, the team captured their first Double Championship in the same season by winning the World Championship in Hot Street as well as the Pro Nostalgia class.

Jim Kuntz of Kuntz & Company, engine-builder and cohort, continued to urge them to build their own Hot Street machine and by early 2003, they could no longer resist the challenge. Along with veteran Hot Street racer and chassis builder, Matt Wirt, they cranked on Brian's chassis and were able to turn it out for the first race of the season. Charlie Jr. took his turn in the driver's seat and drove the BBR Mustang to a third place finish.

2004 was the most successful season to date for the BBR team. They accomplished the first perfect season in NMRA history by achieving top qualifier and winner of every event. The team also achieved their second Double Championship season by capturing the World Championship title in both the NMRA Hot Street and the PRO Edelbrock Pro Stock classes. The BBR Mustang was the first Hot Street contender to break the 8-second barrier in both classes.

While Charlie Jr. was busy wrenching and driving the Mustang in the two organizations, Brian began to turn his attention to the oval track arena. He attended the McDowell/Cook Driving School taught by Ray Cook who piloted the Bill Elliot/Ray Evernham Dodge in the Stacker 2 Xtreme Dirt Car Series and Dale McDowell, a star in the World of Outlaw Late Model series. Brian bought his car, a 2004 Ford Taurus on a Mastersbilt chassis, from Ray. This transaction initiated relationships that continue to provide racing knowledge and support today.

The 2004 season yielded positive results for the rookie driver. After the first handful of races, he regularly qualified for the feature race and finished respectably several times. The highlight of the year was a 4 th place finish on August 14 th in a 40-lap extended feature event.

In 2005, Charlie Jr. brought home the 2005 NMRA Hot Street Championship, becoming the first contender in NMRA history to win back-to-back Hot Street Championships.  Brian saw success on the oval track, finishing 8 th in points and awarded Most Improved Driver for the season at Hagerstown Speedway.

2006 saw Charlie Jr. accomplish a historic NMRA Hot Street three-peat topped only by the fact that it was combined simultaneously with the RAM 10.5 World Championship.  Brian continued to improve on the dirt track, scoring his first feature win and landing in 6th place in points at Hagerstown Speedway.
Charlie Jr. was not able to reel in a fourth NMRA Hot Street championship in 2007, but continued the freight train tradition by securing his second RAM 10.5 World Championship.  Meanwhile, Brian extended his horizons in the dirt late model field by participating in the O'Reilly Southern Nationals series.  He achieved a 6th place points standing with several top 10 finishes and was awarded Rookie of Year.  He moved up a notch at Hagerstown Speedway, ending the season in 5th place.

The constant factors in their racing success are hard work, dedication, persistence, and engines built by Kuntz &Company. Jim Kuntz has built every World Championship engine they have raced in every class and every organization over the past 8 years.

Stay tuned to see the results of Charlie Jr. and Brian's hard work and dedication in the future.
