“This race definitely put us through a marathon this weekend, but seeing those win lights makes it all worthwhile,” Brown said after defeating his teammate. “Next year when we come out, we know the bar will be raised even more at this track with all of this information, all of these drivers learned this weekend, but we feel like we have a good idea how to get things done here in Denver.”

This is the third-time in his career that he has win on the Mountain at Bandimere Speedway. This is his third win of the season and the 64th in his career.

Brown also snapped a three-race final-round losing streak.

He had the starting line advantage and never trailed. He won by 0.0363 seconds, or approx. 17 feet.

Brown’s crew chief Brian Corradi has picked up his 50th career NHRA win.
