AB Motorsports Heading to Topeka for the Menards NHRA Nationals
Topeka, KS – With one weekend off between Seattle and Topeka, the Brown Family choose to spend that time running Jr Dragsters at Cordova Dragway where Brown’s middle child, Anson, raced to a runner-up finish. They then headed on to Topeka for this weekends race.
“Topeka has always been one of my favorite races, especially since it brings back memories of one of my drag racing heroes, Gary Ormsby, when you turn into the track onto Gary Ormsby Drive. We’ve won at Topeka before and we tend to qualify well there. We’ve lost some close ones there in the past, and it’s definitely one of those tracks that can hold big numbers. After our Seattle race, I feel that our team as a whole at AB Motorsports has turned a corner, and we’re excited to get out there. The track is going to be hot, it’s going to be tricky, and those are definitely the types of conditions where we shine.” explained Brown
Personal Appearence: On Thursday afternoon, Antron Brown will throw out the first pitch at the Kansas City Royals game.
