Racing career

Ash's career began in racing karts. After Ash won the Late Model Sportsman track championship at Coos Bay (Ore.) International Speedway, he decided to start racing in the NASCAR Winston West Series. He raced a limited number of events in 1996 and 1997. He ran full-time in 1998 when he was one of three rookies to win a pole position. He nearly won his first series event at Sears Point that year, but his car ran out of fuel just short of the finish line. He has recorded one win in the series.

He made his Nextel Cup debut at Infineon Raceway in 2004, where he finished 41st. In 2005, he raised eyebrows by qualifying eighteenth at Kansas Speedway, and ran well in the opening laps before he was spun by Dale Earnhardt Jr.

In 2006, Ash has made two races, finishing 43rd in the Subway Fresh 500 at Phoenix International Raceway, and qualifying 43rd for the Dodge/Save Mart 350 at Infineon Raceway. He led one lap at Phoenix.

In 2007, Ash attempted to qualify for the race at Infineon Raceway. His qualifying speed was 40th of 52 cars, but he did not qualify fast enough to make the race. All teams outside of the top 35 in points qualify for eight starting positions, and Ash's speed was too slow. Ash will attempt to qualify for the Phoenix race on November 11 2007.

Personal life

Ash is a graduate of Oakland High School in Oakland, Oregon. He is married to Tiffany, and the couple have one child. [ [http://www.02brandonash.com/brandonbio.html Biography at Ash's Official website] , Retrieved November 6 2007]
