Brown Unstoppable Against ASCS Midwest
by Bryan Hulbert
MCCOOL JUNCTION, Nebr. -- If Brian Brown was looking to make a statement with the Speedway Motors ASCS Midwest Region, he made it loud and clear this past Saturday night at Junction Motor Speedway.
Gridding the field sixth in the Casey’s General Store/FVP/ Searsboro Telephone No. 21 Brown grabbed the point from Don Droud Jr. on lap six with a high line pass in slower traffic exiting turn two. From there it was the Brian Brown show as the Grain Valley, Missouri native preceded to lap up to fifth place in the night’s non-stop 25 lap feature event.
Jack Dover would race by Droud on lap twenty to claim the runner up spot, as well as the Midwest Region points lead, with Droud holding on to round out the podium. Jeremy Campbell crossed the stripe fourth with Cody Ledger rounding out the top five. Jason Danley, Trevor Grossenbacher, Ryan Roberts, Jay Russell, and Randy Hibbs made up the top ten.
In his post-race interview, Brian Brown dedicated his win at Junction Motor Speedway Jordan Creason, wishing him a speedy recovery, as well as the Grandmother of crew member Mark Clemmons who was unable to attend the night’s races after her passing on Wednesday. Brian extended thoughts and prayers to both families in their time of need.
The Speedway Motor ASCS Midwest Region continues their Nebraska run Sunday at Eagle Raceway.
