SUNSET SPEEDWAY, STROUD ONTARIO Assante Dodge Intrepid driver Tyler Brown had a ‘career’ night going into the feature of the final Ontario Pro Challenge Series race of the year. Brown had shown good speed since becoming the youngest driver to compete in the series. Then after completing his rookie orientation, he was ready to take his ‘regular’ spot in the field. It didn’t take long for Brown to show, not only his speed, but his passing skills as he made a dramatic last corner pass in the second heat race to record his first win in the series.
“Getting my first win racing against the guy who has always offered me advice every step of the way as I have advanced in my racing career made this win special,” said Brown after beating mentor Russ Bond for the win.
On the Ontario Pro Challenge web ( www.prochallengeracing.com) site Brown is listed as young gun determined to become top gun. It only took him to his second official start to become the top gun in the second race on Saturday night
“I also have to thank my dad who has worked every spare moment these last two weeks getting the car to this point after we had a bad wreck 2 weeks ago,” Brown added.
Brown lined up fifth for the feature, but a cut tire on the warm up lap sent him to the pits, and he was unable to make the start of the race. But even that couldn’t take the smile of the 14-year-old’s face. “It was so cool tonight to finish off the season this way, I got my first win, my brother Nathan was riding in the pace car for that race and we had a lots of family and friends there as well”
