Brandon Brown, right, talks with driver Tony Dunker earlier this season at the Bullring.

Raise your hand if you remember “Hammer Down” Brandon Brown, one of the Bullring’s top modified drivers  in the early 2000s? In recent years, Brandon has been working with Tony Dunker’s  TEAM 3 (or 4) operation, but Tuesday and Wednesday he will be in the pits for the No. 63 MB Motorsports team, which is fielding a ride for Justin Jennings in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at fabled Elodra Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio.

Brown, who owns Pentagram Engineering in Quincy, will be working with Justin’s dad, Greg Jennings, uncle Neil Jennings and LG Seeds sponsor Brad Althide. Brown has worked with the team at other times in the last few years.

“Those are the gentlemen who own and operate the No. 56 UMP Super Late Model driven by Michael Long on Sunday nights at the Bullring,” Brown said.

Justin Jennings drove the No. 56 late model until Long took over in 2012.

“This will be the most unique race I’ve been able to participate in,” Brown said. “I’ve taken dirt modifieds and late models and ran them in pavement races, a short-track chassis and ran it on mile tracks, but never had the chance to take an asphalt car and run it on dirt — until now.”

The name of the race is The Carcash Mudsummer Classic, which will be televised on Speed. Prerace activity, including qualifying, starts at 6 p.m. CT. The race should start around 8:30, but if you’re planning on watching I would suggest to tune in early. These times are not cast in stone.
