Say What!

"To win this close to home, we have a lot of our partners here. Obviously Casey's General Store, FVP, Impact Signs, Weld Wheels; their on our nose wing tonight and have been a huge supporter of Brian Brown Racing since day one. Champion Oil, Ditzfield Transfer, MC Power, Maxim Chassis, Garrett Engines, Chad Morgan, Wyatt Burks, Michael Williams, my Dad, grandpa George....it seems like when he's here, I just seem to run a little bit better. He has that calming effect on me and has been a huge part of my career and I have to also thank my wife, Heather but it's good to win here at home I can tell you that. When you've won 15-20 races a year, you kind of take that for granted and this our first one this year." Brian Brown winning Lakeside KS ASCS

“I’ve wanted to win this race for so long and to finally do it is such a special feeling, I’ve been close before and something would always happen, so that final lap was definitely nerve racking. Racing with a guy like Sean Becker for the win is always fun and to get it done like that is something I’ll always remember. I can’t thank the Tarlton family and Dennis & Roth enough for the opportunity. I don’t think I’ll get much sleep tonight after that one! I hope all you fans enjoyed that show tonight, because it sure was exciting.” Kyle Hirst winning hte Dave Bradway Jr Memorial at Chico CA

“This feels good, The winter was long. We didn’t do anything except the race last week. It feels great to be back in shape. I feel like driver wise I need to work out because I was tired at the end.” Steve Poirer winning ESS at Fulton NY

"We're out of sponsorship, We have to win just to keep showing up. I think this shows how much work we put in over the off season. We have a good package here." Andrew Felker winning Belleville IL POWRi

"I am glad everyone made it over from the Memphis, Tenn. area, I guess Pevely (Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55) is the next closest to home, but this is our home track now and I just appreciate everybody coming out on a Tuesday night." Jason Sides winning I-30 Speedway AR WoO Tuesday night.
