(Nashville, TN) The 37th running of the All American 400 will be in memory of Jillian Leanne Brown. Jillian and her family were avid race fans and a huge part of Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway. Her Father Jonathan Brown is CEO/Owner of US Tank & Cryogenics and will be the title sponsor for the All American 400. He also sponsors 2 Super Late Models and 4 Pro Late Models that will run this weekend.
Jillian was a beautiful 16-year-old light in the world, Jillian lost her life tragically as a passenger in a car accident on October 20, 2020. Jillian entered this world on February 26, 2004, in Sarasota Florida, to her parents Jonathan and Jennifer Brown. Jillian was passionate about music, especially country and hip hop. She was her brother’s biggest sports fan and jealous of her sister’s dance moves and all her Tik Tok fans. Jillian’s family describes her smiles as infectious she was honest, a great friend, she never met a stranger. She was a practical jokester and took selfies for days. “She was all legs and a lot of Dr. Pepper.”
We at Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway are extremely grateful to be able to honor such a wonderful race fan during such an amazing weekend. We know Jillian will be there in spirit and we will make sure to put on an event she would have loved. This weekend is about racing, but it is also about something greater, honoring the memory of Jillian and doing all we can to preserve her memory in the hearts of the people who loved her most.
