GRAIN VALLEY, Mo. (July 24, 2023) – Brian Brown has been nearly unbeatable at the Sprint Car Capital of the World, and that trend certainly continued Saturday night, July 22, with “Blackjack” accomplishing another impressive triumph, this time wiring the field for a $5,000 payday and ultimately his fifth Knoxville Raceway victory of the season. Brown, now a 65-time winner at the Knoxville, Iowa, half-mile, commenced his most recent winning campaign from the front row, kicking-off the program with the second-fastest time during qualifying time trials, next finishing sixth during heat race action.
As suggested, Brown led every lap of the 20-lap contest, unphased by traffic with his lead actually increasing.
Altoona, Iowa’s Austin McCarl and former three-time All Star champion, Aaron Reutzel, rounded out the podium.
“We struggled all night long honestly,” Brown said in Knoxville Raceway victory lane. “This is a different car than we’ve had all year here. This was a car we won the Outlaw show with last year and then I crashed at the Capitani Classic. I feel like it really wasn’t right at the Nationals. I chose to bring this one, and after the heat race (finishing sixth) I was thinking it wasn’t a bad decision. Our team never quits though. If you give my team enough opportunities, it’s going to be good.”
Brian Brown and Brian Brown Racing will continue their 2023 campaign with another action-packed agenda in the Midwest, first joining the All Star Circuit of Champions at I-70 Motorsports Park in Odessa, Missouri, on Friday, July 28, followed by another All Star Circuit of Champions contest at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, on Saturday, July 29. Each event will award an $8,000 payday.
