February 23, 2019 — Atlanta Motor Speedway Preview

HAMPTON, GA (February 22, 2018) – Brandon Brown returns to the race track just one week after his 21st career NASCAR Xfinity Series start. This week the quad oval, a 23rd place finish in 2016.

 
Friday afternoon saw the 25 year-old graduate of Coastal Carolina University turn 30 laps (9 and 21) over two practice sessions, ending up 22nd in both. The No. 86 BMS Chevy ran on the same set of tires for the 30 total laps, running the fastest lap on the 20th overall (11th in Happy Hour). 
 
Brown said “the balance is really good, I felt like I could put the car in any line, over any seam and it really drove off the corner well, which is super important here.” He also added “it stinks having a blank car in just our second race as a full-time team but I really think a strong showing here, following up a solid run at Daytona can help our small team be put on the map and we can have a company trust our race team with their marketing program.”
 
On Saturday the team will qualify at 9:30 am and race at 2 pm (pending weather). The full schedule of events and broadcast schedule is below:
9:30 AM – Qualifying – FS1
1:30 PM – NASCAR RaceDay – FS1
