Brian Brown with Champion Racing Oil Wins at Knoxville
Brian Brown is off to the hottest start of his career at Knoxville Raceway, where he captured his sixth feature victory in seven A Main starts last Saturday.
“We’ve had a really, really good start up there this year,” Brown said. “We’ve been consistently good. When you’re in the hunt every night you can try little things. This weekend we had another good, solid night. Our car worked flawlessly. We’re proud to be partners with Champion Oil.”
Brown opened the event by qualifying fourth quickest. He then advanced from fifth to third place in a heat race, which lined him up on the inside of the second row for the 20-lap A Main.
“We got through traffic well and took the lead on lap seven,” he added.
The win was the fifth triumph of the season in the 410ci winged sprint car division at Knoxville Raceway. He has also been victorious in 360ci winged sprint car competition to give him a half dozen wins this season, which ties his personal record of victories in a season at Knoxville Raceway. He also won six times at the half-mile oval in 2010.
Brown will continue to ride his momentum into his debut at Farley Speedway in Farley, Iowa, on Friday with the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series before he returns to Knoxville Raceway on Saturday.
Champion Oil is celebrating its 62nd year in the industry.
