KNOXVILLE, Iowa – Brian Brown got his season off to a rough start. The winner of 16 races in 2013 finally broke through with a hard-earned victory on Saturday night at Knoxville (Iowa) Raceway. The win was the Grain Valley, Mo., driver’s 26th in 410 competition at Knoxville, placing him ninth on the all-time wins list.

Knoxville’s Joe Beaver won for the second time this season in the 360 class, while Holt’s Summit, Missouri’s J Kinder won in the 305 class.

Lynton Jeffrey shot out from the pole to lead early in the 20-lap 410 feature event with Brown and Justin Henderson in tow.

Brown went on to record the win in the Casey’s General Stores/FVP No. 21. Dakota Hendrickson took the B main.

“When you have a multi-time champion behind you like Terry (McCarl), you just don’t know what to do,” Brown said.

“He can run the bottom and the top. He’s a hell of a competitor and a guy I grew up idolizing. He’s a hell of a racecar driver. We needed this win. Everyone on this team has been a big support. That support means more when you are down, and I feel like the luckiest guy in the world.”

Knoxville’s Joe Beaver won for the second time this season in the 360 class, while Holt’s Summit, Mo.’s J. Kinder won in the 305 class.
