HEBRON, Jan. 26, 2012: Team JEGS driver Makenna Brown already knows she will leave this Saturday's National Trail Raceway Awards Banquet with one trophy, but it was recently revealed that the Junior Dragster phenom has been nominated for a second.

Brown won the National Trail Jr. Dragster 2 class track championship by one point in 2011, which is the primary reason she will attend the banquet. As a bonus, Brown is one of three nominees for "Most Improved Jr. Dragster Driver" award, which is determined by a vote of the racers themselves.

If Brown wins the special award it would be the second straight year she has won a special end-of-year track award. Brown was selected as the 2010 Jr. Dragster Rookie of the Year at National Trail.
