Inside Line Promotions – GRAIN VALLEY, Mo. (May 4, 2020) – Brian Brown is heading to his favorite race track this weekend as several dozen of sprint car racing’s top drivers have been selected to take part in a World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series invitational.
UP NEXT – Friday at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series
“It’s a best-case scenario for our team that we could put together being able to go back to Knoxville and it being an Outlaws show,” Brown said. “It’s been a weird 2020 with the pandemic. I feel for all the people that lost their family members or friends and who have been effected. There is a light at the end of the tunnel. Hopefully more tracks will open and everybody does a good job with social distancing and governors will allow racing to resume.”
A Different Atmosphere Without Fans in the Stands
“I’m sure it’s going to be a little different,” Brown said. “You can always hear the PA system going and hearing them cheering. That will be different, but it’s part of it. The fans are a huge part of our racing fraternity and racing family. This isn’t a long-term plan. It’s a short-term plan to get us going. Once we show we can do this professionally with all the things they are requiring hopefully the next step will be to have fans in the stands.”
Readjusting to Racing After Being Off for 12 Weeks
“This is more like a season opener than a part of the 2020 season,” Brown said. “It’s like we had a winter series in Florida and we’re back to hitting the ground. Everybody is itching to go. There can only be one winner. It’s our favorite track and our best track. We have our best motor in and our best car. Hopefully that will be good enough for us to be in contention to win.”
