Brian Sockwell (born June 7, 1968 in Brown Summit, North Carolina) is a NASCAR driver.

Early racing career[edit]

Early NASCAR career[edit]

2002-2004[edit]

In 2002, he came back to the #54 Chevy[1] sponsored by Maddux Supply Co. and later Lowdermilk Electric. He struggled in his five starts in the 2002 season, with only one finish inside the top 20.[1] In his last race of the 2003 season, he and his sponsor moved to the #5 Ware Racing Enterprises team, but wrecked and were released at the end of the season.

In his first season in the Busch Series, he went to the #94 Chevy sponsored by RaceApe.com. Later in the season, he moved to the #41 Chevy sponsored by cashwell.com.

2005-Present[edit]

In his only race of the 2005 season, the Sam's Town 250, he went to the #88 Reary Racing Chevy.

He attempted the 2007 Kroger 250 truck race, however he failed to qualify. He also attempted the 2007 Gateway 250 in the #97 Reary Racing Chevy, however he was pulled from the entry list.

In 2008, he attempted to qualify for the Chevy Silverado 250 in the #54 Reary Racing Chevy sponsored by Sculley Boats, but failed to do so. Later that year, he qualified for his first truck race since 2003,[2] the North Carolina Education Lottery 200. He started last (36th) and finished 29th.[3]

Personal life[edit]

He has a wife named Janet and a daughter.
