Wally Brown grew up in Pennsylvania and began racing at the age of 18. He has worked in motorsports for more than 25 years. He has a passion for flat track racing and is looking forward to competing in Production Twins in 2022.
Throughout the years Mike has raced karts, worked on Late Model and SCCA road racing teams, taught at the nation's top-rated undergraduate Mechanical Engineering college, and won several autocross club championships. He is an accomplished manual machinist often machining experimental parts for his own racing. Mike developed an extensive knowledge of brake and clutch systems as the Managing Engineer at Tilton Engineering from 1995 through 2009. There he worked extensively with teams, engine builders, and others in NASCAR, Trans Am, Grand Am, SCCA, Indycar, off-road, and other forms of racing. Since then, he has been the Technical Director for Essex Parts Services, Inc., where he continues to advance the state of the art in racing brake systems for all levels of automotive racing. Mike entered into and won his first motorcycle race at the age of six growing up in a family of two-wheeled racers. Today he keeps the family tradition alive racing flat track and earned an AMA national championship in 2009. He can be found on a weekend in front of challengers mounted on newer machines with his personally prepared 1978 Yamaha, or in his basement crafting one of his 20 vintage motorcycles.
