@SOSSprints • @brownie1026 • (July 13, 2015)- Mitch Brown recorded his seventh top-three finish of the 2015 Southern Ontario Sprint Cars season with a second place run behind defending series champion Glenn Styres at Brighton Speedway on Saturday night July 11.

The driver of the Haldex/Pro-Fit Health Club/Strodes BBQ & Deli/54 Gas and Variety #10 Sprinter won his qualify heat and drew position 4 for the A-Main

The Brantford driver, who finished second to Styres in the 2014 SOS Championship standings, now has a record of two wins, a runner-up finish and four- third place finishes in the top three to lead the series standings after seven events in the 12-race schedule. 

Glenn Styres who started on the pole won Saturday's 25-lap chase at Brighton for his second SOS series win of 2015 and remains in second place in the points race as the teams prepare for their next encounter back at Brighton Speedway on August 8.

BROWN SECOND AT OHSWEKEN 

At Ohsweken Speedway on Friday night, Brown started second alongside Welland's Jim Huppunen in the 360 Sprint Car  feature and took the lead on lap four with third-place starter Styres moving into second place three laps later.

The two front runners both ran the high groove around the 3/8th-mile oval as they worked the lap traffic with Styres finally taking the lead with just four laps remaining in the 20-lap A-Main.

Huppunen held on for third with Dain Naida of Tecumseh, MI and Todd Hoddick of Cheektowaga, NY rounding out the top-five

With his second-place finish Brown closed to within 12 points of current Ohsweken Speedway points' leader Hoddick in the Corr/Pak Merchandising divisional standings with defending champion Styres in third place just 22 points out  of first.

JAKE BROWN THIRD AT OHSWEKEN SPEEDWAY

Jake Brown charged to an impressive third place finish in the Strickland's GMC Crate Sprint Car feature on Friday at Ohsweken after starting seventh in the 15-lap race. He also finished second in his earlier qualifier.
