Inside Line Promotions – GRAIN VALLEY, Mo. (April 17, 2018) – Brian Brown is returning to Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 this Saturday for the first time in nearly three years.
Brown will tackle the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series event at the bullring in Pevely, Mo., marking his first appearance since May 2015.
“It’s one of the most exciting tracks we get to go to,” he said. “It’s a smaller track, but to me it races bigger. It’s so wide. You’ll see guys creeping around the bottom and you’ll see guys knocking the fence down.”
Brown’s best result at the oval came in 2012 when he earned a third-place finish.
“One year I led it and was back to sixth, got up to second, fell back to eighth and finished third,” he said. “You have to be on your toes. You have to make every move count.”
The Spring Classic, which has rained out the last two years and three of the last five years, will also provide a great opportunity for Brown to meet with FVP customers and employees during a hospitality event before the race begins.
“FVP is a valued partner of our team,” he said. “Any time we can go out and have a nice meet-and-greet event then race in front of them it’s important.”
Brown is also looking to improve on his best result of the season – fourth place – during World of Outlaws competition.
“Any time we get a chance to run with the Outlaws we like to,” he said. “They are the best of the best and the best at their craft. If you can go in and have a solid top 10, top five or get lucky to win one you know you’ve earned it.”
