Meet Justin Brown: NYS and Riverhead Raceway 'Rookie of the Year'

He is an 18-year-old NASCAR Tour Type Modified driver and he hails from Manorville on Long Island, New York.

Brown was brought up in a racing family as his father, Fred Brown, is the owner of FB Transmissions, and he had a successful career as a drag racer.

As a kid, he loved NASCAR and always rooted for his favorite driver, Jeff Gordon (No. 24). In 2012, he was afforded the privileged opportunity to race a champ kart. “Growing up, 24 was always my number and I liked him as a driver all of these years. He was my racing idol growing up and I always looked up to him,” he said.

On being a race car driver in the digital age, he said, “It feels good to be a racer in this age. I grew up watching racing and I started out in Go-Kart races and I worked my way up to the Crate Modified. To be driving one now at 18 years old is pretty cool.”
