“I don’t even know where to start,” Brown said in a Facebook post. “Grandma, you made us all rough and tough. You were everyone’s grandmother. You gave a lot of love of which the most was the love of tuff. Has shaped us all, from boys to men. Your house housed everyone. I know you are smiling from ear to ear because you are with Grandpop, Grandmom Gert and Uncle Bobby. I love you and I will miss you. I promise that I will never stop fighting and working hard. Told me to always put my hands up and out of the box. You’ve lived a long life, but it seems it has passed too quickly. GODSPEED Grandma I love you. I wish I could kiss you on those cheeks. #love #you miss’

It has been a difficult month for the Brown family. Antron’s uncle Andre, who is a running mate, lost his wife Marsha on December 11.

Brown returned to Chesterfield, New Jersey to have his family participate in Marsha’s services. He will be making his second trip to New Jersey to mourn the passing of his grandmother this time around.

D’Andre Redfern, who was a great-grandchild to Grandma, is also involved in the NHRA. He previously worked for the Funny Car team of Terry McMillen Racing and Bob Tasca III.

Redfern will be part of AB Motorsports which will make its February debut at the Lucas Oil NHRA Winternationals presented by February 17-20 in Pomona, Calif.
