A nationwide schedule, a booming presence at the biggest events, and an unparalleled marketing structure for his sponsors has created Brian Brown into one of sprint car racing’s most well-recognized figures. Fans can see the Higginsville, Missouri native just about everywhere they look, from their local track in his Casey’s General Stores No. 21 to the highway rolling down the road in his bright FVP Parts trailer to social media sites across the web.
Beginning his career locally in the Missouri/Kansas area, Brown scored his first-career sprint car victory in 1999 in Mayettea, KS. The new millennium brought him his first-career championship, taking the 2000 Winged Outlaw Warrior (now ASCS Warrior Region) title. In 2001, he pursued his dreams with the ambition to tackle the entire Knoxville Raceway schedule, but a blown motor on opening night soured the season.
The fiery and passionate young man returned in 2002 with a vengeance. Brown would go on to win the Knoxville Raceway 360 track championship with six victories to his credit, five of those coming in a row. He stepped up to the 410 ranks in 2003 aboard a Lonny Parsons entry, a car which he scored his first-career Knoxville 410 win in.
Over the coming years, Brown continued to hone his skills and better his craft across the Midwest, snagging wins and impressing thousands along the way. In 2007, he broke through to secure his first 410 track championship at Knoxville, an honor he would again claim in the 2010 season.
In 2012, Brownie started an incredible streak of three-straight second-place finishes at the Knoxville Nationals. It was the biggest sprint car race in the world and Brown was right there in contention battling for the title year-after-year-after-year. To conclude the 2014 campaign, Brown scored his first-career World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series triumph at The Dirt Track at Charlotte (NC).
Since then, Brian has amassed multiple World of Outlaws victories and become a wild card with the nation’s premier sprint car series whenever he pulls into the pit area. To this day, Brown owns 44 career 410 victories at Knoxville (6th all-time) and 16 career 360 victories at Knoxville (7th all-time).
Be it California with the World of Outlaws, Pennsylvania with the All-Star Circuit of Champions, or the iconic Knoxville Nationals, Brown is easy to spot at the front of the field on-track, interacting with his countless die-hard fans in the pits, and representing his sponsors at the highest level online.
