GRAIN VALLEY, Mo. (June 5, 2023) - “Blackjack” Brian Brown certainly knows his way around the Sprint Car Capital of the World, and with the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series set to invade Knoxville Raceway in less than a week, what better time than now to lock down a perfect line at the historic half-mile.
Officially bumping his Knoxville win total to two on the season, Brown, ace of the Casey’s, FVP, Andy's Frozen Custard, Impact Signs Awnings and Wraps, Mt. Dew Overdrive, HAWK Hunting, Ditzfeld Transfer, Champion Brands, MC Power, Weld Wheels, Housby, Maxim Chassis, No. 21 sprint car, found his recent trip to victory lane during a start on Saturday, June 3, utilizing a front row starting position to eventually power to the top spot on lap 12, securing the lead from Tea, South Dakota’s Justin Henderson. It was Henderson’s eventual run-in with traffic that opened the opportunity for Brown, helping the Higginsville, Missouri, native increase his career win total at the raceway to 62.
It was a near-perfect evening on the whole for Blackjack, kicking things off with the fifth-fastest qualifying time overall, followed by a runner-up finish during heat race competition.
Adding some extra luster to his stat card, before visiting Knoxville on Saturday, Brown joined the High Limit Sprint Car Series for a midweek visit to Tri-City Speedway in Granite City, Illinois, on Wednesday, May 31. The reigning Knoxville Raceway track champion finished tenth.
“Overall, just a real solid night for us at Knoxville. We put an entire evening together capped with a front row starting position and a win,” Brown noted. “We kind of chased Henderson for a little while then we were able to sneak by. I really like where we are as a team. Definitely looking forward to Eagle tomorrow, then back to Knoxville with the Outlaws on Friday and Saturday.”
Brian Brown and Brian Brown Racing will continue their 2023 campaign with another exciting week through the Midwest, first joining the High Limit Sprint Car Series in a midweek visit to Eagle Raceway in Eagle, Nebraska, on Tuesday, June 6. Brown’s week will continue with back-to-back World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series starts at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, on Friday and Saturday, June 9-10.
