Roa Sets Track Record and Takes 2nd in Arizona - Back To Perris Saturday!

Thursday, May 23 1590

Brody Roa put the previous week’s 14th place finish at Bakersfield in his rearview mirror and he set a new track record in qualifying and placed second in the USAC Southwest Series’ “Hank Arnold Memorial” last Saturday night at the Central Arizona Speedway.  This week, he will try to retake the point lead in the USAC/CRA Sprint Car Series at the annual “Salute to Indy” at Perris Auto Speedway.

The long journey to Arizona quickly paid dividends for the Garden Grove driver and his team with fast time in qualifying and the new track record of 15.133 on the Casa Grande oval.  The veteran racer backed that up with a second-place finish in his heat race.

Roa started the 30-lap main event on the outside of the third row.  The track proved to be hard on tires and hard to make passes on.  For most of the first half of the race, Roa kept the #91R in sixth before moving up one spot on the 13th lap.  As the four cars in front of him wore out and popped their right rear tires, Roa had taken care of his right rear well enough to end up with the lead with two laps to go.  However, one of the drivers who blew a tire earlier, came back with new rubber and snatched the lead from Roa with one lap to go.

With a tire that was void of tread, Roa came home second.  The finish allowed him to expand his lead in the USAC Southwest Series standings to 48-points going into the next race at Arizona Speedway on June 1st

Through his first dozen sprint car races in 2019, Roa has an impressive record with three wins and 10 top fives. Only one time has he finished out of the top 10.

Before he heads back to Arizona, Roa will be at Perris this Saturday for the USAC/CRA “Salute to Indy,” a race that began in 1948.  After leading the points for much of the early going this season, he comes into Saturday’s race in second place, but he is only 20 points out of first.   

For fans who would like to attend this Saturday’s race, the spectator gates will open at 5:00 P.M. and the first race will be at 7:00.
