Long-time area racer Jim Brown of Hannibal, Mo., has passed away.

No other details are yet available, other than he was found dead in his residence Monday morning. Watch The Herald-Whig obituaries for funeral arrangements and other information.

Brown was the 2013 Moberly hobby stock champion. He last raced in Quincy in 2012, finishing 10th in points. The track discontinued the hobby stocks after that season and Brown did not race in Quincy in 2013.

Arguably his most memorable moment at Quincy Raceways came during the 2010 season when he won three straight features.

    R.I.P. Jim Brown. Jim was a very hard nosed racer. He raced alot in the 1980s and 1990s then stepped away from racing. Like all of us he just couldn’t get it out of his blood and returned and had a very successful last 3 seasons. He went out on top claiming the points title in Moberly last season. I was lucky enough to have Jim as a good friend and will cherish the memories.

    Hello Mr. Eighinger, I am Jim Brown’s older brother living in the Chicago area. The funeral arrangements have been made at O’donnell Funeral Home in Hannibal for this Friday.

    I thank you for the nice article you wrote about Jim. I just have one question, was his racing car number still #83, or had he changed it recently??

    Thank you,

    Dennis Brown
