Antron Brown will again familiarize himself with the Matco Tools Top Fuel dragster when the David Powers-owned Top Fuel team begins its off season testing program at Gainesville (Fla.) Raceway on Dec. 17.

Brown and the Lee Beard-led team will test at the historic Florida drag strip Dec. 17-19 as Brown continues to acclimate himself to the Top Fuel dragster. The 16-time NHRA Pro Stock Motorcycle winner competed in the popular two-wheel category the past 10 years before being named to drive the Matco-backed rail in November. Brown twice was a championship runner-up in the bike class.

"I'm real anxious and can't wait to get started with our test session in Florida," Brown said. I'm excited to work with our new crew at the race track. I feel we have an all star cast of crew members led by Lee Beard. We're having a great time at the shop, but we really want to fire-up this Matco Tools dragster. Our goal is to get my Top Fuel license and make some really consistent laps in the dragster.”
