Brown's No. 68 Xfinity car in 2019

In 2014, Brown made his Camping World Truck Series debut at Iowa Speedway,[4] finishing 25th after starting 27th.[5] He made two more starts in the year, with a best finish of 19th at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.[6]

The following year, he attempted eight races but failed to qualify for three. After starting the season with a 29th-place finish at Atlanta Motor Speedway,[7] he ended the year with a best finish of 14th at Dover International Speedway.[6]

In the 2016 season opener at Daytona International Speedway, Brown finished a career-best fourth place.[8] Brown made his Xfinity Series debut at his home track of Richmond International Raceway in September 2016. Brown increased his Xfinity Series schedule in 2017, with intentions of running ten races in addition to select Truck races.[9]

After driving a full-time Xfinity Series schedule in 2019 for 2 teams, Brown drove the No. 68 Chevrolet for Brandonbilt Motorsports the following year. He made his first appearance in the NASCAR Xfinity Series playoffs, finishing 12th in the regular season standings, but was eliminated following the first round.[10]

In 2021, Brown tied his best career finish with a sixth at Daytona International Speedway,[11] followed by an eighth-place finish at the Daytona Road Course.[12] He improved on his best finish at Phoenix Raceway when he finished third after various leaders were forced into the wall on an overtime restart.

Personal life

Brown graduated from Coastal Carolina University in 2018 with a degree in communication;[13] he was also a member of the Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity.[2] The school serves as a primary sponsor on Brown's truck and Xfinity car.[9][14]
