Champion Oil, a recognized leader in racing lubricants, congratulates Brian Brown for his recent win at Knoxville Raceway. The Grain Valley, Mo., driver passed Josh Schneiderman just past the halfway point of Saturday’s 410 sprint car feature and held on for his 46th career win.
Clinton, MO -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/06/2019 -- It was worth $4,000 aboard the Casey's General Stores/FVP No. 21 sponsored by Champion Racing Oil on Budweiser Night. Schneiderman shot out to an early lead ahead of Matt Juhl and Kerry Madsen in the 20-lap 410 sprint car main event. Madsen moved into second by lap four, while Brown slid into fourth. By lap six, Brown had gotten by Juhl for third, and he eked by Madsen on lap eight for second.
Up front, Schneiderman was strong on the cushion, but entered lapped traffic on lap nine. Brown shot by for the point, but the pass was negated when seventh running Justin Henderson flipped in turn two. He walked away. Schneiderman led Brown, Madsen, Juhl and Parker Price-Miller back to green.
Brown and Madsen were all over the tail tank of the leader. Brown threw a slider to take the point from Schneiderman on lap 11, with Madsen moving into second. Mark Dobmeier was running twelfth on lap twelve when he got the wrong end of a three-wide battle and flipped in turn one. He walked away.
Brown led Madsen, Schneiderman, Juhl and Price-Miller back to green. Brown pulled away with some furious action behind him. Madsen crossed the stripe second, ahead of Juhl, a late charging Brooke Tatnell and Price-Miller.
"Schneiderman is a really good race driver," said Brown in Victory Lane. "He's just had some tough luck over the years here. That's a family I really admire. They've been here a long time. I want him to win a race, just when I'm not here. My engine lost a cylinder with about eight laps to go. I'm proud of all of our guys. My grandpa George is here, and he hasn't been here in about three years to see me win. It's awesome to have him back. It's just a calming feeling to have him back in my pit."
