Champion Oil, a recognized leader in racing lubricants, congratulates Brain Brown for his win at the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car feature at Knoxville Raceway last Friday night.
Clinton, MO -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/17/2019 -- The Grain Valley, Mo., driver made it "four for four at Knoxville" in dominant fashion, leading every step of the way in the 25-lap feature. The win was worth $10,000 for the pilot of the Casey's General Stores/Champion Racing Oil/FVP Brian Brown Racing No. 21. Brown became the 15th different winner of the season for the World of Outlaws.
Brown came from his starting spot inside row two to blow by front row starters Daryn Pittman and Shane Stewart. As he pulled away in clean air, seventh-running Sammy Swindell slowed to bring out a caution two laps in. The restart saw Brown leading Pittman, Stewart, Donny Schatz and Brad Sweet.
Brown chose the inside line and pulled away again, building on his lead. The leaders entered lapped traffic on the tenth circuit. Brown continued to build his lead with Pittman maintaining second over Stewart and Schatz.
Sweet pressured Schatz for the fourth spot as the two took turns battling past each other. Eventually Schatz would maintain his advantage. Brown weaved masterfully through traffic, and was four seconds ahead of the second-place car of Pittman at the checkers.
"This one's for you Knoxville fans!" exclaimed Brown. "You guys support us every Saturday night. It's important for us to run well in front of you guys when the Outlaws are in town. I'm proud of everyone on the team. I got a really good start, and I haven't been running the top much. I knew I was running my tires off a little bit. You don't know how far you're ahead. Lapped traffic got intense a couple of times. I kept my composure and here we are. I always thought I'd like to win my first Outlaw show at Knoxville. We've won them in Charlotte, Arizona and Kansas, but this one's special. Four seconds felt like four-tenths of a second to us."
