NEVER A DULL MOMENT
(BELOW) Brian has modified, developed, andfine-tuned a number of successful competitionvehicles over the years, and he shows no signsof stopping. As such, we’re excited to see whathis latest project becomes (BOT TOM).
was sort of track-worthy, and whenSCCA announced Track Night inAmerica, I thought that soundedpretty cool,” Brain says of SCCA’sprogram that allows virtually anyoneto drive their street cars on theracetrack in a non-competition,low-pressure atmosphere.
The track experience wasreminiscent of his first autocrossweekend. “It was the samething,” he laughs. “I showed upknowing no one, knowing nothing.
But I had a blast, and I decided
I wanted to keep coming back.”
Brian was also in the midst of
another automotive project – project
cars, it turns out, are something Brian,
now an auto technician, and his father
do not lack. “A friend of mine was
selling a 1990 Honda Civic sedan that
his dad had rotting in his backyard,”
he says. “He sold it to me for $300.
I drove that for many years [through
college], and that eventually turned
into my E Prepared autocross car.”
That car earned him a third-
place EP finish at the 2016 Solo
Nationals, then landed him the EP
National Championship title in 2017.
In 2018, he returned to the SoloNational Championships in SMF inhis old CRX with the very specificgoal of winning. Which he did.
“Then last year, SCCA announcedthe Time Trials National Tour[Powered by Hagerty] and thereturn of the Time Trials Nationals,”
“I love driving on track…butI also love the competitionaspect of autocross”BRIAN KUEHL
