Michael Brown Sixth at Cherokee Speedway

July 23, 2013 – Michael Brown had “one of those nights” at Cherokee Speedway in Gaffney, S.C. on Saturday night.  He thought he had a strong car early in the evening but in the end he struggled to a sixth place finish with the Blackwell Motorsports BRWC No. 27 Crate Late Model.

Brown, 20, said after the race that he wasn’t sure exactly what the team had missed in terms of the car’s setup.  “The car handled flawlessly, but we just didn’t have any speed all night.  The track was really tacky after the early showers, but we went from 10th to 4th in the heat race so I would have thought we would have been better in the feature. I can’t thank Travis and Chastin (Blackwell) enough for letting me race for them.  Everyone on this team works hard every week.  It’s just sometimes you miss on the setup or the track changes in a way you didn’t anticipate.  Missing by a little here makes a lot of difference with the competition we’re racing against.  It was good to be back in the car for sure!”
