GRAIN VALLEY, Mo. (April 2, 2024) - Saturday’s visit to 81 Speedway in Wichita, Kansas, was complete with not only persistence, but perseverance, as “Blackjack” Brian Brown and Brian Brown Racing were forced to turn a poor situation into a good one, climbing ten positions to do so before eventually concluding the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series appearance with a 14th-place score from row 12.

Brown, ace of the Casey’s, FVP, Andy's Frozen Custard, Impact Signs Awnings and Wraps, Mt. Dew Overdrive, Ditzfeld Transfer, No. 21 sprint car, was forced to start 24th after missing a transfer position in his respective heat race. The Higginsville, Missouri, native drove on to finish fourth in the evening’s Last Chance Showdown, ultimately qualifying for the 30-lap finale.

Although a double planned, Brown’s weekend was actually cut short, as World of Outlaws competition was canceled at Thunderbird Speedway in Muskogee, Oklahoma, on Friday, March 29 - windy conditions being the culprit.

“Just so very proud of my whole Casey’s | FVP team,” Brian Brown stated. “We were off to start the night, but we kept our heads down and made some great adjustments after the heat. We got the car where it needed to be for the A-Main.

“We were charging through there and got up to ninth from 24th. Unfortunately, I got greedy and tried to get closer to the big tractor tires on the inside of the track and hit one. That did damage to the drag link and front axle…we were lucky to finish 14th after the contact.”

Brian Brown and Brian Brown Racing will continue their 2024 campaign with a World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series appearance at Arrowhead Speedway in Colcord, Oklahoma, on Saturday, April 6. Saturday’s Jason Johnson Classic will award a $20,000 top prize.
