Brian Brown #21
4-9-2011 GREENWOOD, Neb. — Brian Brown emerged from an early duel with Don Droud, Jr., to take the $3,000 winner’s share in his Weld Racing wheel equipped sprint car in Saturday night’s 25-lap Speedway Motors ASCS Midwest main event at I-80 Speedway.
While Droud gunned into the lead from the pole position for the second night in a row, fourth-starter Brown put on the pressure immediately and raced into the lead exiting turn four on the seventh circuit only to have Droud slide back in front a half lap later. Brown battled back in front in turn four on the eleventh round and made it stick, leading the rest of the way aboard the FVP No. 21 Maxim and went on to a series’ best 18th career Midwest win and 24th overall ASCS triumph.
