  • For the second consecutive event, Brown will pilot a Matco Tools Maximus 3.0 paint scheme in support of Matco’s launch of their newest diagnostic tool, the Maximus 3.0, now available
    • The Maximus 3.0 is the fastest, strongest and most intuitive member of the Maximus diagnostic tool family
    • The Maximus 3.0 bridges the gap between diagnosis and repair utilizing the MaximusFix repair database. Once a technician scans a vehicle, they will have full information to help them get to the fix faster. With MaximusFix, they gain instant access to technical service bulletins, wiring diagrams, flow charts and more to complete the job at hand.

“We’re definitely getting to the realm of where we want to be. The team’s confidence is growing. We just need a little luck to go our way on race day. We’re going to go out to Pomona and try to qualify better, hopefully in the top three and end the year on a good note.”
