GRAIN VALLEY, Mo. (May 9, 2022) - Five-time Knoxville Raceway track champion, Brian Brown was forced to battle the best in the business on Saturday night at the famed Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, facing-off against a stout contingent of local, regional, and national talent that included All Star and World of Outlaws competitors. Gathered for a Knoxville Raceway weekly program (taking advantage of great weather conditions after much of the Mid-Atlantic was stopped by Mother Nature) the field reached 43 competitors, all aiming to score valuable lap time before the upcoming World of Outlaws invasion in mid-June, as well as the coveted Knoxville Nationals in August.
Although Brown and Brian Brown Racing were unable to top the field, their performance was impressive, scoring another top-ten at the Sprint Car Capital of the World in the form of a sixth-place outcome after starting two positions back. “Blackjack” kicked-off the program with the fastest qualifying time in his respective group, as well as the fastest time overall. The Grain Valley, Missouri, native is now second in the Knoxville Raceway championship standings, trailing Justin Henderson by less than 40 markers.
“Overall, it was a great night for our team. Danny, may Dad, and Justin all did a great job and I’m proud of their efforts,” Brian Brown said, driver of the Brian Brown Racing, 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, Wolfe Eye Clinic, Mid Mo Equipment, Bell Helmets, No. 21 sprint car. “We were fast right out of the gate and that helped us get our night activated right, especially against a 43-car field. I think I made a few mistakes that ultimately kept us from having a better night, but we’ll take this sixth-place run and move on.”
Tentatively, Brian Brown and Brian Brown Racing will continue their 2022 campaign with another round of action at the famed Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, on Saturday, May 14: Hy-Vee Night.
