Defending NHRA champ Antron Brown informed the media today that he’ll be testing out a NASCAR K&N car for Rev Racing next week Tuesday (May 28th) at Motor Mile Speedway in Virginia. Rev Racing CEO Max Siegel says that this is the initial step, and if it goes well, it could lead to more testing, and maybe even some racing.
According to Siegel, the plan for him to test has been in the works for a few years now. “We’ve been talking for 3 years,” Siegel said. “What we wanted to do was put together a training program that takes him from the very beginning stages of assessing his ability and talent. He definitely has a passion and interest to compete on a national scale. I think what we don’t want to do is put the cart before the horse.”
This is of course, just the beginning, but it will be exciting to track Brown’s progress. The 37 year old has racked up 39 NHRA titles (23 in top fuel, 16 in pro stock motorcycle), and is currently 3rd this season in the top fuel points.
