Brian Brown Posts Fourth Victory of the Season at Knoxville Raceway
Wednesday, July 15, 2020
Inside Line Promotions – KNOXVILLE, Iowa (July 15, 2020) – Brian Brown led the distance at Knoxville Raceway last Saturday to garner his 52nd career 410ci winged sprint car triumph at ‘The Sprint Car Capital of the World.’
It was a great ending to a weekend that began with a World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series event the previous night.
July 10 – 34 Raceway in West Burlington, Iowa – Qualifying: 19; Heat race: 7 (7); B Main: 1 (1); Feature: 15 (19).
“We seemed to be missing a little bit, especially on the qualifying end, at different places,” Brown said. “That gets you behind the eight ball. We had to run the B Main and won it. We started 19th in the A Main. We got lapped pretty early, which happens on a small track like that. Once you get lapped you’re caught in that position and we couldn’t advance more. It wasn’t a horrible night, but definitely not what we were looking for. On nights like that you can learn sometimes more than nights when things go well.”
July 11 – Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa – Qualifying: 5; Heat race: 2 (5); Feature: 1 (2).
“We didn’t qualify as well as we wanted,” Brown said. “We tried something and we weren’t as good. We went fifth to second in our heat and then we got a good draw so we could start on the front row of the feature. We knew four or five guys behind us would be tough. We were able to get out there and get rolling. As the race went on we changed our lines and moved around to get the win. When your schedule is more condensed than it is in past years you have to get every win you can when they are right there. We feel good where we are headed at Knoxville.
“Also, hats off to Knoxville Raceway, USAC and obviously the Dunkin’s with the track crew of getting that in. It would have been easy to throw in the towel after all the rain. They kept plugging away at it and we were able to get it in. Chad, Nate and dad did a good job all night long as well.”
UP NEXT – Saturday at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa
“We’re on the test-and-tune policy right now,” Brown said. “Like when you go to the eye doctor and they say, ‘Is that better or is that better?’ We’re thing to figure out if we can fine-tune things and make it better for all conditions – on a heavy track, a dry track, racing behind cars.”
