Don Schumacher Racing (DSR) and Antron Brown have announced the formation of AB Motorsports. Team owner Don Schumacher will work with Brown, guiding him toward the eventual goal of sole ownership of AB Motorsports, which will function as a subsidiary of DSR.

Brown will serve as the Top Fuel driver for AB Motorsports.

“This is a dream come true. Never in a million years did I think I would be a professional Top Fuel driver, let alone have the opportunity to be a team owner,” said Brown, who made the shift from Pro Stock Motorcycle to Top Fuel in 2008. “I can’t thank Don Schumacher enough for not only the opportunity to race for him and represent DSR for many years but now helping me to pursue my dream. I also have to thank Steve and Samantha Bryson, as it brings me great happiness to welcome them to AB Motorsports with their Global Electronic Technology team.

“Don’s provided me with the foundation to make it happen, and I’m truly grateful,” added Brown, who first joined the DSR family in 2002. “I’ve learned many things from Don over the years, but the one thing that stands out to me the most is him telling me to always work harder than your competitors. That’s something that’s always stuck with me and will continue to do so as I move forward into this new chapter.”

Brown’s former crew chief Brian Corradi will assume the tuning responsibilities alongside current and longtime crew chief Mark Oswald. Brad Mason has also returned to assist with the management of the car as well as act as a liaison between the team and Toyota Racing Development (TRD).

“I’m so pleased to be able to help Antron as he begins the process of working toward team ownership,” Schumacher said.

The Matco Tools/Global Electronic Technology/Toyota Top Fuel dragster will take to the track for the first time during pre-season testing at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, January 30—February 1.
