It didn’t take Brian Brown long to get to the front of the field in Friday’s Casey’s General Stores qualifying night feature, as the Casey’s/FVP No. 21 shot to the point exiting low in turn two on Roger Crockett on a Lap 2 restart.


“Man I’m so happy,” said an elated Brian Brown in Knoxville Victory Lane. “I was so nervous going into tonight. I didn’t want to let all those people down that thought we were supposed to be up here down.”


Pulling Kerry Madsen into the runner up spot, the duo began dicing for the lead as the caution displayed on Lap 3.


At speed, Madsen put the Keneric Racing No. 29 to the cushion with Brown able to throw the block. Battling back after falling back to fifth, second starting Scott Winters pulled to third on Lap 4 while Brown opened his advantage to 1.332 seconds.


Slowing again on Lap 8 for the stalled No. 4A of Jon Agan, the restart saw Brown work the hub with Madsen again railing the cushion. Producing a run down the back straight, Madsen dove for the lead through turns three and four; sliding across the nose of Brown’s No. 21. Giving the Grain Valley, Mo. shoe just enough room to drive across the racing surface, Brown reclaimed the lead at the line.


Closing on slower traffic on Lap 15, the advantage stood at 0.742 seconds with traffic allowing Madsen to make up four-tenths by Lap 19 as the pair began pulling slide jobs on the back markers in a high speed game of cat and mouse.


Pulling as close as two-tenths on Brown, traffic would finally clear with two laps to run, giving Brian Brown enough room to pull to a 0.812 second advantage at the checkered flag, putting the FVP No. 21 outside the  front row of Saturday’s 50 lap feature event, next to Joey Saldana who place fifth in the night’s feature event.


Kerry Madsen held onto second and earned the eighth starting spot in Saturday’s feature event. “Obviously disappointed to not get the job done there, but the reality is, I should have good points for Saturday night, and it’s a far cry from where we were at this point,” commented Madsen on his runner up finish.


Kevin Swindell came from sixth to complete the podium; his fifth in as many starts in the Southern Iowa Speedweek. “I really thought I was going to steal one from them in traffic ‘cause I was the only one down on the bottom that was kinda rolling good. Just slipped there once, but we’ve run five nights with five podiums, and a win, so I’m excited to be locked into this deal and go in with a little momentum.”


Swindell will roll from the ninth starting spot in Saturday’s FVP Knoxville Nationals championship feature.


Roger Crockett held on to fourth with the night’s quick timer, Joey Saldana, advancing from eighth. Coming from the B-Feature, Cody Darrah clawed from twenty-second to sixth. After moving back into the top three early on, Scott Winters faded to seventh with Craig Dollansky, Terry McCarl, and Stevie Smith completing the top ten.


Friday’s program will again provide drivers a chance to race into Saturday’s feature event, giving the top four in Friday’s A-Main a chance at rows nine and ten in Saturday’s 50 lap feature event.


Hot Laps Friday, August 9 are scheduled to begin at 7:15 P.M. (CDT). For news, updates, and further information, log onto http://www.knoxvilleraceway.com.
