Brown has topped the ASCS Midwest Region's June event atop the 3/8-mile McCool Junction dirt oval over each of the past two years.

Brown, the winningest driver in ASCS Midwest Region history, is out to the early series points lead after finishing second to Jason Johnson on Saturday night at Knoxville Raceway.

Sather kicked off her title defense by racing from 21st to thirteenth in Saturday's Knoxville opener.

Junction Motor Speedway is located in McCool Junction, NE, off I-80 Exit 353, then 5.6 miles south on US 81, then 0.3 miles west on CR 4, then north. For more information, contact the track at 402-724-3100 or 402-773-5538.
