At 51 years old, Mike Brown just won the 40 plus opening moto at the 2023 Loretta Lynn’s by thirty seconds over Jeff Emig, who had to come from 10th on a 300 two-stroke, with Racer X’s Kris Keefer third.
While speaking to Jason Weigandt on the podium, Brown expressed his relentless pursuit of victory throughout his entire career, be it in professional sports or even in +75 category. He displayed his admiration for the excellent performance of the new 350 KTM bike. Despite having been in similar situations before, he emphasized that he is not there to take advantage of it. He highlighted that this particular race is of utmost importance to him every year, and he made a confident commitment that if he returns after the next year, he will definitely participate in a National after Loretta’s.
Brown said ; “I’m trying to get as many championships here, I’m not chasing it but I’m getting close, enjoy one more year of it and then try a National and if I qualify good and if I don’t, I’ll probably be back here”
