GRAIN VALLEY, Mo. (May 16, 2022) – “Blackjack” Brian Brown and Brian Brown Racing were impressive yet again at the Sprint Car Capital of the World, cashing in for their second victory of the season, the 58th of Brown’s career, and earning a $5,000 payday in the process. Brown’s charge to the front commenced from the outside of row two, kicking off the Saturday night, May 14, program with the fastest qualifying time overall. The Grain Valley, Missouri, native would go on to finish second in his respective heat race, climbing four spots from sixth for his only defeat of the evening.
A hard-fought victory, Brown, driver of the Casey’s, FVP, Andy’s Frozen Custard, Impact Signs Awnings and Wraps, Rowdy Energy, Ditzfeld transfer, Champion Brands, MC Power, Weld Wheels, Housby, Maxim Chassis, J.D. Welding & Machine, Waldinger, Smiley’s Racing Products, No. 21 sprint car, was forced to outduel three-time All Star Circuit of Champions champion, Aaron Reutzel, as well as Lynton Jeffrey, for the Knoxville triumph, trading bumps and slides before taking command officially with just a handful of circuits remaining.
Adding a little extra drama to the evening, Brown had to go an extra circuit to 21, as a last lap caution would ultimately lead to a green-white-checkered finish.
“I didn’t feel like we were really great that whole feature,” said Brown in Victory Lane. “I got working with my wing. We had a motto this week, ‘Whatever it takes.’ Aaron did a phenomenal job. I had to slide him and just try to block the line. They’re probably upset with me, but we’re here to win. It’s an honor to drive this car.”
Tentatively, Brian Brown and Brian Brown Racing will continue their 2022 campaign with another round of action at the famed Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, on Saturday, May 21: Jersey Freeze/Dennison Racing Tee’s Night.
