Fred Brown


Epping, NH
09.May.1956 - 27.Oct.1985
Today (October 27, 2015) marks the 30th anniversary of my father Fred Brown passing at Lee Speedway. I was 6 weeks old, and never got the chance to know him, my sister was 5. Stories of him racing (should I say winning?:)) will probably live on forever! Would love to hear stories you have of him, see photos, etc. I know I have special traits of his some good maybe some bad! haha I definitely have his forehead! :) You are loved and missed everyday Daddy!

I can still remember the Saturdays spent at the Browns house near the center of Epping, hanging with little Howard and watching Freddie get his daredevil ready for battle later that night at Star. God he was a hero to me and I couldn't wait to get older and have a racecar and be like him. Also remember him and the gang coming to Ipswich for our annual racing outing. Whenever the Browns - Trefetherens and the whole Ipswich group got together it was always a good time drinkin beer, horseshoes and football, man I miss those days. RIP Freddie, your memorys live on.

Fred Brown (son of legendary NESMRA driver Howard Brown) lost his life at Lee USA Speedway (actually en route to the hospital) driving a late model sportsman back on October 27, 1985. He did drive a super for (in fact teamed with his father) Tim Trefethan back in 1984.

Our familys go way back to the early 60's and we were tough competiors on both sides. I knew your dad since we were kids and raced in the Yankee Modified's in the early 80's. He would always be there for anyone with an answer to any question and always help when he could. You Dad could drive the wheels off of anything he drove. He might have been short but he was 10 foot tall behind the wheel.

A contributer said, "In Buster Taylor's "91" I remember the year he ran that old Beast in the star classic he ran the whole race , I was by the car when he got out with a Big smile on his face and asked "who won the old man?" His Old Man in fact did win
