2009 will mark the third season for the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series and for Brantford, Ontario born and raised racing veteran Doug Brown it will mark another milestone in his lengthy stock car racing career.

The quiet but determined competitor and second-generation driver* will once again be among Canada's leading drivers who will be vying for the championship in the series' and he knows he will be facing some serious challenges in the season ahead.

As a former leading professional on the demanding Motocross circuit before turning his competitive talents to stock car racing in 1995 - Doug amassed an impressive record during his early stock car racing career including a "Track Championship" in Thunder Cars, "Rookie of the Year" Honours in Street Stocks and top qualifying "Rookie" in a handful of "Super Series" events. He also enjoyed a highly successful career in CASCAR's Sportsman Series ranking among the top-five drivers before turning to the Super Series full time in 2004.

In his first full season on the Super Series circuit, the Brantford, Ontario native recorded three top-seven finishes and sixteenth place in the overall Series' points' standings despite skipping three points' events in Western Canada.

In 2005, Doug and his team fought their way back from some early season engine problems to record eight top-ten finishes in the 12-event/ 14-race schedule and finished eleventh in the points' standings.

Only bad luck late in the final race of the 2006 season prevented Brown from achieving a top-ten finish in the final standings.

In 2007 Doug enjoyed some solid runs in the first season of the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series but he also experienced more than his share of heartbreaks with accidents and flat tires derailing his efforts for a top ten finish in the overall standings. He wound up fifteenth in the final results, well below his capabilities.

Last year he demonstrated an even greater intensity but was again thawarted by more than his share of bad luck. Nevertheless he and his teammated rallied to record five top ten finishes in the demanding series. In other events his strong runs were ended by racing incidents that are just a part of challenges  teams and drivers face in each event they enter in the exciting and fascinating world of motorsports. 

Prior to entering the motorsports arena, the versatile athlete was a leader on Brantford "AAA" minor hockey teams; finished among the leading scorers during three straight seasons of tough Golden Horseshoe Junior "B" competition; and led Orillia into their first season in the Provincial Junior "A". In the 1995-96 season he captained the Ohsweken Riverhawks to the Provincial Senior "A" Championship -a league in which he won the scoring title.

Doug continues to reside in Brantford with his family. He is a certified mechanic and principal operator of Brown Auto Service.

When not involved in his racing enterprises, the successful hockey enthusiast lends his knowledge and skills to coaching minor hockey teams and this winter is behind the bench as head coach of the "AAA" Guelph Storm Minor Midgets in the Ontario Minor Hockey Association.
