  • Brown, a three-time Top Fuel world champion, has won at every track on the current NHRA tour with the exception of two – Richmond and Bristol, and the new team owner is hoping to capture that elusive first Thunder Valley Nationals victory this weekend

“We’ve come close numerous times but have yet to win at Bristol. Our Matco Tools/Lucas Oil/Toyota/SiriusXM/Hangsterfer’s team has been hitting it hard to ensure we have a good outing this weekend. We tested at Indiana Raceway Park earlier this week, and we’ve been getting ready, doing our homework, and doing what we need to do to go out there this weekend and compete at a high level. The weather looks like it should be decent, and we’re looking forward to doing great things and bringing home a trophy on Father’s Day. My family will be out there supporting me, and I’m looking for it to be a great ‘get healthy’ weekend for our AB Motorsports team.”
