Mitch Brown Leads Brother Jake to the Win in 360 Sprint Car Action 

Not to outdone by his younger brother’s performance of last week, Mitch Brown netted his first win of the season at Ohsweken Speedway on Friday night (May 27th, 2016) grabbing the lead on lap seven of the 20-lap A-Main and running virtually unchallenged through the remaining laps on his way to the checkered flag.

The win marked the Brown family’s first one/two finish in the 360 sprint car division.

“These cars are good, and its showing,” said Brown following his eighth career sprint car win at Ohsweken. “I have to thank my Dad; he probably doesn’t get enough credit.”

The opening lap saw Jamie Turner of Caistor Centre take the early lead over his son Ryan with Jake Brown in third but Mitch Brown quickly joined the foray from his seventh-place starting spot by moving past both the younger Turner and his brother Jake to chase down the race leader.

Jake Brown took the 2nd spot from Jamie Turner, then held off Dylan Westbrook of Scotland, ON , and Ryan Turner who rounded out the top 5 finishers.

A caution of lap 15 when Glenn Styres climbed over Derek Jonathan’s right rear wheel and rolled over in turn 2. brought out the red flag but Styres’ crew was able to get their car back on the track, albeit with some damage.

Mitch Brown was able to pull away on the restart while his competitors worked around lapped cars.

Heat race wins went to Jake Brown, Tyler Hendricks, and Dain Naida, while Dave Dykstra took an exciting B-Feature win after his crew made an engine change.

Jake Brown leads the 360 Sprint Car Championship standings by 14 points over Mitch Brown, and also leads the Rookie of the Year standings by 27 points over Dylan Westbrook.

Note: The evening success of the Brown brothers came on the third anniversary marking the passing of their grandmother Gloria Brown- one of their biggest boosters.
