“Anytime you’re on the podium with the outlaws, especially at a track you're not used to, is great,” stated Brian Brown speaking about his third place finish in the 2013 debut with the World of Outlaws at Tucson. “They are the best in the world and to be on the podium is great for this team. I'm really proud of the way everyone on this team is working together.”

Arizona motorsport enthusiasts are some of the most loyal and knowledgeable fans anywhere in the country, and they have been really patient. The last time the World of Outlaws Sprint Cars competed at Tucson International Raceway was 2007. But the wait turned out to be well worth it with the return of the Wildcat Shootout on Saturday, March 9. During a spectacular night of racing, on a new lightning fast clay surface, 19 of the STP Sprint Cars eclipsed the track record set back in ’07.

“We have been very happy with our car and team to start the 2013 season. Getting off on the right foot is always key to a new season,” Brown said. “We really didn't know what to expect getting back on Hoosiers. They changed the construction of the tires a little bit. We qualified really well on Wednesday (in Vegas where he went on to finish 6th).”

“I think the real key for us right now is Charlie Garrett engines. Being on his team is like getting drafted by the Yankees, and it has shown at these Outlaw shows. Charlie really has our engines running great and when you qualify, a lot of emphasis is on the engine. We are lucky to have him on our team.”

Brian Brown, Inc. had a win earlier in the year at Tucson with ASCS, which clearly helped him get things started on the right note, as he was third quick in Tucson on Saturday. “It was probably the best car we've had in a long, long time,” Brown added. “We went out for hot laps and we were under the track record.”

Last season Brown and his team has had ten wins, 37 top-3 finishes, 48 top-five finishes and 59 top-10 finishes. As one of the hardest working men in Sprint Car racing, Brown understands the overriding significance of reaching the podium with the Outlaws after his first race, and jump starting his season with a reasonable amount of confidence.

“Our goals are to win races and to compete for wins every night that we race. If we can do that, the wins will rack up.” Summing up what Brown’s long and short term goals are for the 2013 season.
