Brown is 4 - 2 against McClenathan in prior events. Brown with the starting line advantage and they then both start to lose traction and they both pedal it. Both of their engines are eating themselves up as they crass the finish line with Brown taking the win light. Brown will give lane choice to Schumacher in the final. Apparently Brown lost an engine as we have a lot of oil in his lane, so he is using up his freebie.
