Oldham County Sweeps the Kentucky Speedway Top Cop Challenge presented by BudsGunShop.com
Oldham County tandem of Sergeant James Brown and Officer Jared Ellison took team honors while Sergeant James Brown raced to the individual title in the sixth Top Cop Challenge presented by BudsGunShop.com at Kentucky Speedway.
Brown paced the Oldham County team to a second event title with a 152.36 mph. lap and joined Ellison in posting a best-combined speed of 304.60 mph. Brown emerged atop a field of 16 officers representing eight jurisdictions with a 155.98 mph. lap to take the individual title.
The speedway created the friendly competition to thank regional law enforcement for its efforts toward making the venue's race events successful in addition to officers' year-round public safety initiatives.
Police officers representing the City of Cincinnati, Butler County, Ohio, Hamilton County, Ohio, Jeffersontown, Kentucky, Gallatin County, Kentucky, Oldham County, Kentucky, Kenton County, Kentucky, and the Kentucky State Police drove NASCAR Racing Experience cars for eight laps.
The two-officer teams that generated the fastest cumulative time determined the team title. The officers with the three fastest individual times were eligible to race for Top Cop honors.
The winning officers earned Buds Gun Shop prizes, and the Oldham County team also earned July 13 Monster Energy Series Quaker State 400 tickets to be distributed to families in need in the team's community.
The Gander Outdoors Truck Series 225 starts the weekend Thursday, July 11, and the Xfinity Series Alsco 300 is Friday, July 12.
