GRAIN VALLEY, Mo. (May 31, 2022) - Brian Brown Racing’s first Pennsylvania road trip of the season had its share of ups and down, but fortunately for Brian Brown, there were plenty more ups than downs.

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, Wolfe Eye Clinic, Mid Mo Equipment, Bell Helmets, K1 RaceGear, No. 21 sprint car, kicked-off his trip to the Keystone State with a runner-up finish in Selinsgrove Speedway’s Thursday Thunder program on May 26. “Blackjack” started from the outside-pole position, but Gio Scelzi proved to be the man to beat, eventually leading every lap of the $5,000-to-win program.

Despite Mother Nature ruining all hope for action at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday, Port Royal Speedway’s annual Bob Weikert Memorial went on as planned Saturday and Sunday, May 28-29, with over 40 Pennsylvania Posse regulars and All Star Circuit of Champions making the call. Doing his best to win one for the Midwest, the Higginsville, Missouri, native went on to highlight the two-day blockbuster with an 11th-place score on Saturday, utilizing the 12th-fastest qualifying time and a third-place heat race finish to earn a spot in the $10,000-to-win Weikert Memorial preliminary.

Brown had the potential to better his overall Port Royal performance in Sunday’s $29,000-to-win Weikert finale, but early race issues forced Brown to retire; he started ninth.

“It felt great to be back in Central Pennsylvania. The fans in that area of the country are just incredible and they've always made me feel right at home. To finally have the chance to compete in the Bob Weikert Memorial is really special. He was an icon who owned an iconic car…it’s just so special to celebrate that,” Brown stated. “Hats off to my guys. We had some issues on Sunday that we couldn’t overcome, but we were fast right out of the box all three nights and I can’t ask for much more.”

ON DECK:
Tentatively, Brian Brown and Brian Brown Racing will continue their 2022 campaign with a visit to the Sprint Car Capital of the World, Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, on Saturday, June 4. The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series will visit Knoxville Raceway on Friday and Saturday, June 10-11.
