Podcast: Brandon Brown on His Emotional Talladega Win & How Close Brandonbilt Was to Closing

His tears of joy said it all, but Brandon Brown joins Davey Segal this week as the first repeat guest on the podcast this season to revel further in his first career NASCAR Xfinity Series victory at Talladega Superspeedway. He explains why the win was so emotional given his and his father’s journey to this point, how close Brandonbilt Motorsports really was to shuttering operations this season, what the party (or parties) have been like and doing it for the DMV (that’s Delaware, Maryland, Virginia). Plus, was it really that dark at the end?
