2019 NHRA Season In Review: Antron Brown
By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher
This was the first-time in the last decade that Brown did not have a single win. In fact, the last two seasons have been a struggle for Matco Tools pilot, who has just one win during this time.
Brown did go to two final round appearances. He was defeated by Brittany Force at the Mopar Express Lane NHRA SpringNationals Presented by Pennzoil at Houston Raceway Park on April 14th.
The Advance Auto Parts driver from Yorba Linda, California went 3.749 to Brown’s 3.995.
The 43-year-old driver also went to five semi-finals and eight quarterfinals. The team had a 24-24 record and was eliminated in the first-round nine times.
Brown finished ninth in the 10-spot Top Fuel Countdown to the Championship. He finished the season with 2,329 points.
The struggles of the past two seasons could be ending in the 2020 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series. Brown is expected to bring back Brian Corradi (an official announcement is coming soon), who departed John Force Racing in the off-season, to the mix.
Corradi and Mark Oswald are expected be back together as crew chief of the team. These two crew chiefs will attempt to get Brown back to his championship-caliber success.
