Inside Line Promotions – KNOXVILLE, Iowa (June 18, 2019) – Brian Brown captured his fifth career World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series victory last Friday at Knoxville Raceway, which hosted the Brownells Big Guns Bash.
It was his first Outlaws win at his home track, where he now has 48 career victories in the 410ci winged sprint car division.
June 14 – Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa – Qualifying: 2; Heat race: 1 (1); Dash: 3 (5); Feature: 1 (3).
“The goal was to go in there and have a solid night like we’ve had every night so far,” Brown said. “We started off well going second quick in our group. We were able to win the heat. The dash draw wasn’t the best in the world, but we were able to make some good out of that. I feel like that was a huge part of our night. On the start of the feature we got a really good start from third. I’m not sure we would have been able to do that from fourth or fifth. We got out there and got into a rhythm and made some decent moves in traffic to give us some breathing room.
“It was a pretty solid night. I’m proud of Chad, Nate and my dad. It was one of the bigger nights of my career and it was good for the fans. They deserve to have those special moments like the PA Posse fans get.”
June 15 – Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa – Qualifying: 3; Heat race: 2 (2); Dash: 6 (7); Feature: 7 (6).
“Really the night started similar to Friday,” Brown said. “In the dash draw there was a one, two and a seven left when I drew and I got the seven. That wasn’t the best scenario, especially with all the rain they had during the night. We knew it’d be tough to pass. We were able to go from seventh to sixth in the dash. We took off in the feature and on the initial start I got right to third. I felt like we’d be in a good spot to hopefully contend for another win. That got called back and on the second start I just didn’t get going as well. I made a little mistake and two cars got by me. It was tough to make up ground and we weren’t as good as we needed to be to move up there. The conditions were a little tougher and I didn’t run 25 perfect laps.”
UP NEXT – Saturday at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, and Sunday at Dubuque Speedway in Dubuque, Iowa, with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series
“We’re using every opportunity we have to get to Knoxville as being able to fine-tune things and work toward our ultimate goal,” Brown said. “You can go there and try a few things here or there, and it’s still a very good payday. And we’re looking forward to Dubuque. I’ve watched some videos of it. It looks like a pretty good little track.”
