Inside Line Promotions – GRAIN VALLEY, Mo. (Feb. 3, 2020) – Brian Brown is planning on an ambitious start to the season.
Brown will tackle 10 races in 11 days in the state of Florida, beginning this week with the DIRTcar Nationals before the action shifts to the western side of the state next week.
“A lot of times you want the season to be over when it’s coming to an end, but I was disappointed when last season ended,” he said. “I felt like we were gaining some speed and learned stuff in Pennsylvania (last September). We wanted to continue to race because things were going so well. Hopefully that will carry over into the start of this season.
“Chad, Nate and my dad put a lot of hard work in during the winter. All of our key partners are back so hopefully we’ll hit the ground running.”
UP NEXT – Wednesday through Sunday at Volusia Speedway Park in Barberville, Fla., during the DIRTcar Nationals with the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions and World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series
“Volusia is a place where we’ve had a lot of success,” Brown said. “We’ve had a lot of podiums and top fives, but haven’t won there. Ideally we want to be in contention all week long. If we can do that maybe we can come away with a gator trophy for winning.
“We’ve had the qualifying speed. Our engines run good so we should qualify well. After that it’s up to us to make the right adjustments. When the track slows down we seem to struggle a little to have the proper grip to drive forward. I think some of the things we learned last year will play into that. Getting yourself qualified well and into the dashes is key. If we do that I need to do a better job that if our car is good enough to lead the first 15 laps of the feature to hold on to win those races and if not maybe lose only a spot or two rather than four.”
FLORIDA CONTINUES – Feb. 10-11 at East Bay Raceway Park in Tampa, Fla., with the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions and Feb. 13-15 at East Bay Raceway Park for the Ronald Laney Memorial King of the 360s
“It’s been a long time since we’ve been there; maybe 2004,” Brown said. “I’m excited to get over there. It’s good where we have 10 races in 11 days. I’d much rather do that than race Friday and Saturday and sit around for a week before racing the next Friday and Saturday. Let’s get after it.”
