Champion Oil, a recognized leader in racing lubricants, congratulates Brian Brown for a special win Saturday night at Knoxville Raceway, driving to victory on opening night at the black-dirt Marion County Fairgrounds half-mile.
Clinton, MO -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/23/2019 -- Brown dove to the inside of race-long leader Justin Henderson coming to halfway in the 20-lap 410 sprint car feature, completed the pass and drove off from there, dominating the remainder of the Pella Motors/Kraig Ford/Town Crier Season Opener.
Saturday marked Brown's 45th career win in 410 sprint car competition at Knoxville Raceway, as well as his third season-opening victory. "It wasn't one of the prettiest wins we've ever had here, but this one was for my grandmother."
Though Brown was up by as much as three seconds during the 410 feature, the half-mile track was host to some tremendous two- and three-wide racing throughout the night, including in the closing laps.
"I've won here 45 times, and winning never gets old," Brown smiled. "This was a hard race track tonight. The Duncans did a phenomenal job. You could go in four or five different lanes. When I got to Justin Henderson, I just couldn't figure out how I was going to get by him. I was probably better than he was in turns three and four, but when I'd get in his dirty air down in turns one and two, I'd lose everything that I gained on the other end. I just knew that I had to attack.
"There at the end, I got pretty sloppy, but at the end of the day when you go to the bank on Monday with a winner's check, that's all that matters."
