MITCH BROWN AMONG THE LEADERS IN THREE SPRINT CAR SERIESThursday - September - 2015
Brantford Driver Leads Southern Ontario Sprints, Second in Tight Three Way Battle at Ohsweken, Third in Canadian Section of Patriot Sprint Tour
Mitch Brown has yet to win a championship in Sprint Car competition but that may change as the Brantford driver’s local season heads into the closing laps.
Last season Brown finished second to Ohsweken’s Glenn Styres in two championships -Ohsweken Speedway’s weekly Corr/Pak series and the Southern Ontario Sprints series. He also finished fourth in the US-based Patriot Sprint Tour’s Canadian Championship schedule.
Not a bad record considering the seasoned competitors he faced each week in a sport that is without question one of the toughest forms of motorsport. But when last season ended he felt he could have done better.
As this season winds down, the Brantford youngster is determined to prove his point.
The 22 year old currently leads the Southern Ontario Sprints championship standings by 58 points over Styres with just three races remaining on the 2015 schedule.
That series’ remaining events will take place at Brighton Speedway with a double-header weekend September 5th and 6th and the final set for Merrittville Speedway on September 11th.
This weekend’s schedule for the six-year Sprint Car competitor -dubbed ” Downtown” Mitch Brown begins at Ohsweken Speedway on Friday night where the Haldex, Pro-Fit Health Club, Strodes BBQ &Deli, Haldex Pro-Fit Health Club, Route 54 Gas & Variety-sponsored driver takes to the track in the Corr/Pak Merchandising series trailing Styres by a mere 2 points while holding an eight-point margin over Cheektowaga, NY driver Todd Hoddick with only three points nights left in the regular season schedule.
Those three drivers have swapped leads atop the standings in recent weeks and are bound to generate an exciting battle for the championship that may not be decided until the final points night on September 4th.
Brown will also be see action this weekend at Brockville Ontario Speedway (Saturday) and Cornwall Motor Speedway (Sunday) for the final two events on the Canadian Patriot Sprint Tour schedule where he trails American drivers Jason Barney and Jared Zimbardi in the championship standings.
Barney of Brewerton, NY leads that points standings with 555 points with Zimbardi of Bradford, PA second at 549 and Brown third with 522.
JAKE BROWN SECOND IN CRATE SPRINT DIVISION STANDINGS
With Mitch gaining much of the headlines, his younger brother Jake remains in second place behind leader Dylan Westbrook of Scotland, ON in Ohsweken’s Stricklands GMC-sponsored Crate Sprint Division with three events left in the second-year divisional standings.
Jake has amassed a record of 11 top-ten finishes (6 in the top-five) in the eleven feature events run to date.
