Bryan Hulbert – KNOXVILLE, Iowa (August 5, 2022) Getting the lead at the start and never looking back, Brian Brown rocketed the Casey’s General Store/FVP No. 21 into Victory Lane on Mid-Am Qualifying Night of the 32nd annual 360 Knoxville Nationals presented by Great Southern Bank.

Brown’s 18th career win in the 360 division at the Knoxville Raceway, the win ties him for fifth in all-time at the half-mile. The triumph was No. 20 for the Missouri driver with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network.

“It’s good to be here. You know, the 360 Nationals really hasn’t been, well, our final night has been good to us, but our qualifying nights; I just don’t seem like I qualify very well, so that digs us a hole, and we start deep, but everyone on this Casey’s/FVP car did a phenomenal job tonight,” said Brown, who now holds the distinction of being the only driver in the top five in both 360 and 410 wins all-time at the Knoxville Raceway.

Finding traffic by Lap 8, Brown paced over Christopher Thram, who was being pursued by Terry McCarl, as the red lights came on for Davey Heskin, who went for a ride in the first and second turns. Collecting Kaleb Johnson and Kelby Watt in the process, all drivers involved were unharmed.

Back to green, Brown again put time over the field as McCarl went to work on Thram for second. Taking the runner-up spot on Lap 13, Terry worked around the half-mile looking for an advantage, but here no catching the Impact Signs/Rowdy Energy No. 21.

Crossing 4.022-seconds to the good, McCarl in second was joined on the podium by Lynton Jeffrey, who took third with three to go. Christopher Thram ended up fourth, with Clint Garner in fifth.

Working third at the start of the A-Feature, Wayne Johnson slipped back to sixth, with Cale Thomas taking seventh on the closing lap from Kyle Larson, who made up 13 positions for eighth. Tasker Phillips crossed ninth, with Blake Hahn completing the top ten.

With both preliminary nights in the books, Lynton Jeffrey amassed enough points to earn the pole in Saturday’s A-Feature for the first time in his third event appearance. Aaron Reutzel will start to his right, with Clint Garner, Terry McCarl, and Brian Brown making up the top five starters.

Friday’s Mid-Am Qualifying Night had 56 of a scheduled 58 drivers on hand, bringing the total drivers checking in to 107 for the 2022 event. The night’s Driver’s Project quick qualifier was Kelby Watt at 16.422-seconds. SCE Gaskets Heat Races were won by Davey Heskin, Tasker Phillips, Austin Miller, Lynton Jeffrey, and Ian Madsen. The C-Feature went to Clayton Christensen, with the B-Feature won by Kyle Larson.
