GRAIN VALLEY, Mo. (May 13, 2024) - It was a strong outing in the Hawkeye State for Grain Valley, Missouri’s Brian Brown and Brian Brown Racing, not only activating the weekend with a top-five at 34 Raceway in West Burlington, Iowa, but eventually capping the two-night slate with a runner-up performance at the Sprint Car Capital of the World.

Brown, ace of his own Casey’s, FVP, Andy's Frozen Custard, Impact Signs Awnings and Wraps, Mt. Dew Overdrive, Ditzfeld Transfer, No. 21 sprint car, finished fifth in his Friday night top-five, doing so in a High Limit Racing start against a 45-car field. A runner-up performance during heat race competition propelled “Blackjack” to the evening’s dash where he finished sixth - his eventual A-Main starting position.

As noted, Brown was second in his Saturday invasion of Knoxville, challenging Dusty Zomer relentlessly before settling for one spot off the top of the podium. In fact, Brown nosed out Zomer on a few occasions, leading by a nose on lap 10 and lap 14 before losing command in the next corners. Like 34 Raceway, Brown’s Knoxville preliminary effort was sound, setting quick time before finishing fourth from sixth in his respective heat race.

“Overall, just a solid weekend for our team, and that’s exactly what we needed to get things moving in the right direction,” Brown stated. “A top-five with High Limit at 34 Raceway was great, especially against a solid field of 45 cars like they had. And hats off to Dusty [Zomer] at Knoxville on Saturday. He ran a great race and didn’t make any mistakes. Sometimes, you’re the second best car and that was the case for us on Saturday night.

“I’m proud of our results and I’m proud of where our team is right now. Not sure of an exact plan for Saturday night, but we’ll keep our fans informed, for sure.”

Brian Brown and Brian Brown Racing will continue their 2024 campaign with a start on Saturday, May 18; I-70 and Knoxville Raceway are the weekend potentials.
