KEEP YOUR EYE ON THIS YOUNG GUN!
J.D. "Hollywood" Brown Racing
Bakersfield, CA | Feb. 13, 2019 - J.D. Brown won his first track championship at the age of 10 at Ventura Raceway and won the Mod Lite championship at Kern County Raceway at the age of 15 last season.
Aside form the fact that J.D. religiously works on his own car and helps fund his racing by selling candy out of his backpack to fellow High School students, what makes this teenager unique is his race craft. Yes, he's fast (3 feature wins last year), but more importantly, he demonstrates patience and discipline on the track that is rare for a young racer.
On several occasions last year, Brown wisely picked his moments, even dropping back in the pack at times to let the overly aggressive drivers take themselves out.
While preparation and speed are critical, it's pretty difficult to be the fastest car on the track every night. Championships are won by racers who consistently make the best choices in the heat of battle and Brown has demonstrated that in abundance. We think it will only be 1-2 more years before this Dirt Dog is ready to step into the national spotlight. Bring on 2019!
