During post-race inspection after the Buckle Up In Your Truck 225 last week at Kentucky Speedway, the No. 86 Coastal Carolina Chevrolet driven by Brandon Brown was found to have lug nuts not installed properly. According to the NASCAR rulebook, the violation falls under Sections 12.1; 10.11.3.4. Brown finished 20th in final race standings.
Crew chief Adam Brenner has been suspended from all NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Championship Points events through July 27. Along with a fine of $5,000, Brenner has also been placed on NASCAR Probation until December 31.
Brown has ran in nine of ten truck events so far this year. The Woodbridge, Va. native has one top-five and one top-10 finish on the season and is currently ranked in the top 20 in the series standings.
The next event for the trucks is the Aspen Dental Eldora Dirt Derby at Eldora Speedway on July 20. Coverage is scheduled on FS1, MRN and Sirius XM Channel 90 and begins at 9:00 PM EST.
Coming off the ranch, I didn’t have a motorsports background but my passion was and still is very strong. My first taste of NASCAR came at the age of seven while waiting for music videos to come on the old TNN network. As I grew up, I pursued other interest but eventually rediscovered cars going left when I found the SPEED channel during the 2011-2012 offseason.
I didn’t decide I wanted to pursue a career in NASCAR until the summer of 2012. I’m not a wrench head or strong enough for a pit crew so media was the next best thing. At the beginning of 2013, I started going to races and making connections within the sport. I also studied Motorsports Management at Sports Management Worldwide. Although I love what happens on the track, I’ve always been interested in what goes on behind the scenes and I’ve gotten to know many people throughout the radio, TV and digital media world.
While I’m a long time writer, 2015 was my first year actually covering the sport with www.nascarfemale.com . I also became a media correspondent for Raceline. I’ve been able to help the TV show gain recognition on social media. My current goal is to acquire more experience in covering NASCAR and move up the media ladder. Outside of motorsports, I have been an equine-sports statistician for 16 years.
I currently reside in Gillette, WY where I’m still involved with horses. I enjoy riding them, rodeo, swimming, traveling and meeting people.
