GRAIN VALLEY, Mo. (August 22, 2022) – Brian Brown and Brian Brown Racing put home-state fans on their feet Sunday night at Missouri State Fair Speedway in Sedalia, Missouri, doing so by capturing a first-ever POWRi 410 Wing Outlaw Sprint League victory for a $5,000 payday. The win, occurring in the Series’ season finale – Ron Ditzfeld Memorial, commenced from the front row, losing command at the initial start to Roger Crockett before charging by the Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, wheelman with just over five remaining in the 20-lapper.
Cautions leading up to Brown’s pass set the tone, as Crockett’s early advantage stretched to nearly five seconds.
Brown’s packed-house victory, a perfect momentum kick after a hard-fought Jackson Nationals doubleheader at Jackson Motorplex one day prior, bumps his season win total to five; the Missouri State Fair triumph was Brown’s first at a venue other than Knoxville Raceway.
As mentioned, Brown participated in the Jackson Nationals featuring the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series leading into his visit to Sedalia. The Higginsville, Missouri, native finished 10th and 16th, respectively, in the Saturday double, forced to race twice after Mother Nature swept action on Thursday and Friday.
“To win the Ron Ditzfeld Memorial is pretty special. Ron was one of my very first sponsors, so to win with his name on the car, and to have his family with us in victory lane, is incredibly special for this team,” Brown said of his Sedalia win. “Hats off to this entire team. To leave Jackson on Saturday and be ready to race on Sunday says a lot about their dedication and willingness to do whatever it takes to win. Success wouldn’t be possible without their effort.”
Brian Brown and Brian Brown Racing will continue their 2022 campaign with Knoxville Raceway’s Season Championship on Saturday, August 27. “Blackjack” is currently second in the championship standings, trailing Clute, Texas’ Aaron Reutzel.
