Back in 2014, he made his official NASCAR debut in the Truck Series at the Iowa Speedway; he competed in 22 races across four years.

Now, the driver will be eagerly awaiting the 2022 Xfinity Series season. The 2020 season was the first full-time season for the #68 driver. That maiden win at Talladega will undoubtedly be a confidence booster for the 28-year-old and he will look to improve his performance in the next season.

In fact, last year, he enjoyed a career-best 11th place in the championship standings. Admittedly, he could only muster 16th in the 2021 season with the Talladega triumph as his lone bright spark. However, that was no flash in the pan, as he notched up two Top 5 finishes and six Top 10 finishes this season.

There is no word on whether Brandon Brown will be back in action for the 2022 season. This is because the Brandonbilt Motorsports team has yet to confirm its participation. Even in 2021, Brown was struggling for sponsors, and even plastered a ‘For Sale’ sticker on the hood of his car. To really sell the stunt, he even made his own promotional video, beseeching sponsors to approach his team for the season. Whether he will have to resort to those desperate tactics again is anybody’s guess.
