Champion Oil, a recognized leader in racing lubricants, congratulates race drivers Brady Bacon and Brian Brown for their respective wins on Saturday night at the famed Knoxville Raceway. Bacon won his Second USAC Corn Belt Nationals Championship at Knoxville and Brown posted another feature win in the 410 Sprint Car Class.
Clinton, MO -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/13/2020 -- Bacon's road to victory and $20,000 began from the pole. He bested fellow front row starter Justin Grant on lap one. Bacon entered lapped traffic on the eleventh circuit. That allowed Grant to close the gap, but Bacon was savvy in traffic and found his way to clean air each time. Grant came closest with about 12 laps to go, but his chase ended short.
"My guys worked hard, and we got to start on the pole, thanks to our work the night before," said Bacon in Victory Lane. "I really appreciate coming out here and racing for big money with non-wing sprint cars.
Brian Brown took off early in the 20-lap 410 main event ahead of pole-sitter AJ Moeller and then battled with Kerry Madsen. "Kerry is one of the best race drivers in the world and is always hard to beat," said Brown in Victory Lane. Special thanks to my crew and Champion Racing Oil."
