Association (ASA) driver Ed Brown hopes to roll his EBR (Ed Brown Racing) team into Nashville Speedway, USA with all hopes of making his final start of the ASA season a good one.

It's been an up and down year for the Florida based operation. A career best finish earlier this year has left the team pumped, but a mixture of bad luck and mechanical failures has left the team results lately sour.

"We want to go out with a bang," said the driver. "It's been a difficult season, a season full of emotions, but were' heading to Nashville looking to sing the good tunes," he added.

In the tour's last outing from Salem Speedway, the Ed Brown Racing team was pleased to go home without a tore up machine. "Salem is definitely a brutal race track," explained Ed. "We did not have the weekend that we wanted to, but we survived and came out a live, so there was really no room to complain. We picked up the pieces well and we're looking forward to the race this weekend."

The team is looking forward to rolling out their No. 60 Brown's Grubb's Auto Repair and ABC Millwork Chevrolet Monte Carlo this weekend. "Nashville Speedway USA, is just one of those tracks you love to compete on, it's a very fun track, but you have to keep your eyes open, as trouble can happen as quick as a blink," Brown mentioned.

"With short track racing, it's always about survival, but you can be the cautious driver and things can still happen. Our goal for the weekend is to be noticeable and have a good top ten run with all hopes of finding a sponsor, so we can run again on the tour in 2004."

Sponsorship woes have plagued the team throughout much of the season, but they all remain optimistic towards the future.

"It's no secret that we're hunting for sponsorship, but it's tough industry right now. We have to go out there on the track this weekend and grab the best finish possible, with all intentions of keeping our hopes up for next year."

The final event of the 2003 American Speed Association season is to be held this weekend from Nashville Speedway, USA located in Nashville, Tennessee. The BF Goodrich Traction T/A Tires 300 is set to being this Sunday afternoon starting at 4:00pm EST, with live coverage on the SPEED channel.
