Brown, from Sydney, will make his debut in a SR11 powered Spike Chassis for Mat Wood Racing November 19-20 at Placerville Speedway for the Hangtown 100. Brown’s tour will continue November 23rd at Bakersfield Speedway, November 28th for the Turkey Night Grand Prix at Ventura Raceway, and the Chili Bowl Nationals January 13-18 in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
