“Blackjack” solid in Jim Nace Memorial; The Grove and BAPS ahead
Monday, September 18, 2023
By Fully Injected Motorsports:
GRAIN VALLEY, Mo. (September 18, 2023) - Scoring a top five in Pennsylvania Posse Country is never an easy feat, especially in a highly-competitive program such as Selinsgrove Speedway’s annual Jim Nace Memorial. But for “Blackjack” Brian Brown, the feat was achievable, racing on to finish fifth in the 44-lap blockbuster, advancing one position in total after starting sixth on Saturday’s $26,000-to-win A-Main grid.
For 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, the top-five outcome at Selinsgrove was a great improvement from one night prior, concluding Williams Grove Speedway’s annual Billy Kimmel Memorial 11th in the running order.
The Higginsville, Missouri, native is certainly no stranger to the high speeds of Selinsgrove Speedway, already conquering the half mile on one occasion in 2023. The Labor Day weekend triumph was Brown’s seventh victory of the season - his first in the Keystone State.
“We went back to our notes from two weeks ago, but we were just a little off. We tried to make some adjustments at the halfway break, but we didn’t take a big enough swing at it,” Brian Brown, who set quick time at Selinsgrove, said. “I feel like we were a podium car if traffic would have worked out in our favor. Regardless, we had a fast race car and I’m proud of our efforts. The plan is to visit Williams Grove and BAPS this weekend, weather pending.”
Brian Brown and Brian Brown Racing will continue their 2023 campaign with another round of action in Pennsylvania Posse Country, this time setting aim on Williams Grove Speedway’s Outlaw Tuneup on Friday, September 22, followed by BAPS Motor Speedway’s $10,000-to-win Kevin Gobrecht Classic on Saturday, September 23.
