Brian Brown’s Aiming Big In Port Royal’s Bob Weikert Memorial High Limit Racing Event

Story By: TYLER ALTMEYER / BRIAN BROWN RACING – GRAIN VALLEY, MO – “Blackjack” Brian Brown and Brian Brown Racing are hitting the highway and heading east, set to join Pennsylvania’s finest and the High Limit Racing “High Rollers” in an epic doubleheader at the Port Royal Speedway “Speed Palace” on Saturday and Sunday, May 25-26.

Dubbed the Bob Weikert Memorial weekend, the two-day showcase boasts an incredible payout, all of which topped with a $75,000-to-win main event Sunday night.

Brown, who will roll into the weekend fresh off of a top-ten at Knoxville Raceway, is certainly no stranger to the Juniata County Fairgrounds halfmile, earning the 2023 Tuscarora 50 championship with the All Star Circuit of Champions for a $62,000 payday – the largest of Brown’s storied career.

Before venturing to Port Royal Speedway, Brown and BBR will take on the Pennsylvania Posse at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday, May 24.

As noted, Brown, ace of the Casey’s, FVP, Andy’s Frozen Custard, Impact Signs Awnings and Wraps, Mt. Dew Overdrive, Ditzfeld Transfer, No. 21 sprint car, finished seventh in his Knoxville Raceway stop, kicking off the evening program with the sixth-fastest qualifying time of 29 entries, racing on to finish sixth in his respective heat race.

Two in a row, Blackjack is now two-for-two in the top-ten category at Knoxville Raceway in 2024, opening the year with a runner-up performance to Dusty Zomer on Saturday, May 11.

“First of all, I want to address the heat race at Knoxville Raceway on Saturday. I want to apologize to Justin Henderson and Forbrook Motorsports, as well as JJ Hickle and Sandvig Motorsports. I feel responsible for what transpired. The incident was certainly not intentional and I apologize to all involved,” Brown openly admitted. “As far as our night, we were just kinda off all evening. Started ninth in the feature and eventually got to seventh, but basically just rode around. We just need to improve.

“We’re pretty excited to get back to Pennsylvania. We have a pretty good game plan in mind for Williams Grove. I could never get a hold of that place, so I’m excited to get there and see where we’re at. As far as Port, I’ve always felt comfortable there and we love racing there. The Weikert Memorial is an event and not just a race. We’re thrilled to be a part of it, and as long as the weather cooperates, we’ll be there.”

Brian Brown and Brian Brown Racing will continue their 2024 campaign with a Pennsylvania Posse tripleheader weekend on Friday through Sunday, May 24-26, visiting Williams Grove Speedway on Friday, followed by Port Royal Speedway’s Bob Weikert Memorial on Saturday and Sunday. The Bob Weikert finale will award a $75,000 payday.
