Inside Line Promotions – ABBOTTSTOWN, Pa. (Sept. 22, 2020) – Brian Brown has four big nights of racing on tap this week following a frustrating weekend in Central Pennsylvania.
“I’ve been frustrated for the last few weeks, but frustration won’t help erase some of the bad luck we’ve had,” he said. “We have the car speed. Once our luck turns around we’ll be in a good position.”
Brown will tackle Eldora Speedway’s Governors Reign, which pays $52,000 to win the finale, on Tuesday and Wednesday before participating in a World of Outlaws tune-up race at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday and the 38th annual Jim Nace Memorial National Open at Selinsgrove Speedway on Saturday.
Sept. 16 – Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, Pa. – Qualifying: 6; Heat race: 1 (2); Feature: 24 (7).
“We were pretty good,” Brown said. “We qualified decent and won our heat race. We lined up seventh for the main event, but we had ignition trouble from the get-go.”
Sept. 18 – Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa. – Qualifying: 5; Heat race: 1 (1); Dash: 1 (1); Feature: 22 (1).
“We qualified well and won both our heat race and a dash,” Brown said. “We were running third on the last lap and blew a right rear tire. We’ve had car speed, but just no luck.”
Sept. 19 – Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, Pa. – Qualifying: 12; Heat race #1: 4 (3); Heat race: #2: 5 (6); Feature: 19 (20).
“We ran around where we started all night,” Brown said. “I feel like we have the car speed. It’s hard not to get down, but to me there’s lots of bright points. You can’t control your luck. You can make your own luck, but you can’t control a lot of things that happen. Stuff that has happened are freak deals that don’t happen normally. On the other hand I’m excited as an owner and a driver that we do have speed. If we can just get rid of that bad luck we have a car capable of having good runs.”
UP NEXT – Tuesday and Wednesday at Eldora Speedway near Rossburg, Ohio, for the Governors Reign with the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 and Friday at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa., and Saturday at Selinsgrove Speedway in Selinsgrove, Pa., for the 38th annual Jim Nace Memorial National Open
“First, I’m honored to be asked to show up to this race at Eldora,” Brown said. “It’s an invitational so it’s not like anyone can show up like how it normally is at race tracks. There’s a lot of great teams that are invited and a lot of great teams that weren’t so we’re just happy to be invited. I’m also happy that Eldora and their staff put on such a big event when they didn’t have to. Eldora is a place we’ve had some success at in the past. We’ve been off a bit in 2020, but the last couple of weeks we’ve gained on it. We’re also looking forward to having two good nights in Pennsylvania this weekend.”
