  • As a five-time zMAX Dragway winner, Brown is looking to tie Toyota teammate Steve Torrence’s class-best six Charlotte triumphs

“We’re looking forward to getting to Charlotte for the Four-Wide Nationals. We’ll get four qualifying laps, and gather more data and R&D, and see if we can pull off our first win as a new team this weekend. We have to go out there and grow and continue to learn with each lap we make with this Matco Tools dragster. We need to get our combination to be a little more forgiving, and more consistent. When you’re consistent, you start plugging away at those round wins. We’ve done well at the Four-Wide Nats in the past, and went to the finals in Vegas a few weeks back and we’re confident we can do that again this weekend in Charlotte.”
