GRAIN VALLEY, Mo. (May 2, 2022) - “Blackjack” Brian Brown and Brian Brown Racing were basically flawless on Saturday night at the famed Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, not only securing their first sprint car feature victory of the season, but doing so in historic fashion, as Grain Valley, Missouri’s Brian Brown is now officially a 57-time 410 sprint car winner at the Sprint Car Capital of the World, tied with the legendary Steve Kinser on the track’s all-time win list.
“It was a great night for our team. Danny, Tye, Justin, Dad, and Grandpa put the hours in the shop this week and it showed. This was a brand new Maxim and it worked flawlessly,” Brian Brown expressed. “I knew starting third we would have a good shot to win. But, I also knew the guys around us were going to be tough. We were able to get into second quick then slide Matt for the lead on a restart. We were able to hit our marks the rest of the race to win. I’m proud of our whole team and all of our partners, and I was especially proud to get Andy's Frozen Custard into Victory Lane with BBR for the first time.”
Earning a $5,000 payday for his efforts, Brown, ace of the Casey’s, FVP, Andy's Frozen Custard, Impact Signs Awnings and Wraps, Rowdy Energy, Ditzfeld transfer, Champion Brands, MC Power, Weld Wheels, Housby, Maxim Chassis, J.D. Welding & Machine, Waldinger, Smiley’s Racing Products, No. 21 sprint car, started third on the feature grid and wasted little time working his way to the front, eventually utilizing an early race restart to power by race leader, Matt Juhl, to take command on lap five; Brown never looked back.
Blackjack kicked off the evening program with the seventh-fastest qualifying time, earning a heat race victory shortly thereafter.
Brian Brown and Brian Brown Racing will continue their 2022 campaign with a World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series doubleheader at the World’s Greatest Dirt Track - Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio, on Friday and Saturday, May 6-7.
