Earlier, the Xfinity Series race at the Talladega Superspeedway, Brandon Brown took his maiden career victory. For obvious reasons, he was utterly happy and was shouting it to the heavens. Immediately after crossing the line, he celebrated with a few donuts on the track before getting out of the car and going to the fans.

Speaking about his donuts, he said, “You all could ask my neighbors back in Carolina. I did plenty of burnouts to practice for this moment. Oh my God! This is a dream come true. Oh my God, dad, we did it! Everything we hoped and dreamed for. Everything I wanted to do is take the trophy home to mom and dad.”

How did the race play out for Brandon Brown?

Truthfully speaking, the race was exciting and chaotic, with a fair number of wrecks. Unfortunately, the end of the race was a little anti-climatic, as the officials noted that the light was fading quickly. As a result, they elected to red flag the race, and Brown was the race leader at the time.

However, he was far from complaining and was happy to finally get the monkey off his back. It is also worth mentioning that he is the second consecutive non-Playoff driver to win a race.

Admittedly, this could add a bit of pressure on the championship protagonists, as it will dramatically reduce their chances of automatic qualification. In other words, they will be under a lot more pressure when the elimination race arrives. Not that it really matters to Brandon Brown, as he is not at all featured in the Playoff fight.

The battle for wins is now a fight for personal glory, because drivers like Jones have nothing to lose. So they can try to gun for wins and give the Playoff drivers massive headaches.
