Inside Line Promotions – KNOXVILLE, Iowa (April 29, 2021) – Brian Brown has had this weekend circled on his calendar for a long time.
Brown, who is coming off a DNF during a race he was leading last Saturday, is shifting his focus to a World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series doubleheader at I-70 Motorsports Park. This weekend marks the first appearance at the track for ‘The Greatest Show on Dirt’ since 1986 and will be Brown’s debut at the dirt oval located a short drive from his house.
April 24 – Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa – Qualifying: 1; Heat race: 1 (6); Feature: 24 (1).
“We were able to set quick time by three and a half tenths,” Brown said. “There’s a lot of quality cars there. Ian (Madsen) was there Saturday and he’s been quick anywhere he’s been. We had another great car in our heat race and I was able to move top, bottom, middle, anywhere I wanted to go really. We’ve had phenomenal cars, especially in the heat races. In the feature we got out there and were cruising. I think we were up by like three seconds after five laps. We were biding our time and weaving through traffic. I felt like we had a really good chance to win that one and we had a mechanical issue with an engine six laps in. You can’t really control that. Sometimes things like that happen. I’m excited we have a fast race car, especially at Knoxville. I feel like we’re back in our groove there.”
UP NEXT – Friday and Saturday at I-70 Motorsports Park in Odessa, Mo., for the FVP Platinum Battery Showdown with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series
“I’m looking forward to I-70,” Brown said. “It’s 15 minutes from home. The place hasn’t been opened since the late ‘80s with the dirt track. What Chris Payne, who is the owner of the track, has done and Tommie Estes, who is the general manager, has done with the facility, it’s unbelievable we have a facility that nice 15 minutes from my house. A lot of friends and family are coming this weekend. It’s the FVP Platinum Battery Showdown so I’m looking forward to having some FVP customers and employees back at the races. I’m just looking forward to having a huge crowd, seeing a lot of friends and family, and I’m looking forward to contending for hopefully a couple of wins.”
