Racing careerEdit

Early careerEdit

Brown first started racing when he was ten, driving go-karts at King George Speedway before moving to dirt track racing, winning the 2006 World Karting Association Mid-South Region Jr. championship. Two years later, he won the Jr. Restricted Light and Heavy Division championships, followed by the VDKA Series and Jr. Restricted Light and Heavy Division championships in 2009.[1] In 2010, Brown began competing in the Whelen All-American Series with family-owned Brandonbilt Motorsports,[2] winning a race and eventually the Virginia Rookie of the Year Award.[1] The next year, he won three races at Old Dominion Speedway.[3]

In 2014, Brown made his Camping World Truck Series debut at Iowa Speedway,[3] finishing 25th after starting 27th.[4] He made two more starts in the year, with a best finish of 19th at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.[5]

The following year, he attempted eight races but failed to qualify for three. After starting the season with a 29th-place finish at Atlanta Motor Speedway,[6] he ended the year with a best finish of 14th at Dover International Speedway.[5]

In the 2016 season opener at Daytona International Speedway, Brown finished a career-best fourth place.[7] With this best finish, the team is attempting to run the full season, and Brown had decent finishes including a 12th-place finish at Kansas, after saving his truck. Brown didn't race at Texas and was replaced by Tim Viens with a Mike Harmon truck. Brown continued to compete on a part-time basis in the trucks, including a career-day at Talladega Superspeedway before being hooked by a spinning Ben Rhodes. Brown made his Xfinity Series debut at his home track of Richmond International Raceway in September 2016.

Brown increased his Xfinity Series schedule in 2017, with intentions of running ten races in addition to select Truck races.[8]

Personal lifeEdit

Brown graduated from Coastal Carolina University in 2018 with a degree in communication;[9] he was also a member of the Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity.[1] The school serves as a primary sponsor on Brown's truck and Xfinity car.[8][10]
