For Immediate Release
ROA 6TH AT ARIZONA’S WESTERN WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP - THIS WEEKEND OVAL NATIONALS AT PERRIS!
(Buena Park, CA, November 8, 2017) Garden Grove, California’s Brody Roa came home sixth in the historic 50th annual “Western World Championships” at Arizona Speedway last Saturday night. The finish was the best for any of the USAC/CRA regulars in the 24-car field that also included the USAC National Sprint Cars. This Saturday, the BR Performance team will be at Perris Auto Speedway for the 22nd annual Oval Nationals.
Last week’s race in the “Copper State” was actually a two night affair with preliminaries on Friday and the finale on Saturday.
On Friday, the 26-year-old timed in 12th fast in the 31-car field and then placed second in his heat race. That put him on the inside of the seventh row for the main event. Fighting and clawing all race long, he basically held the position and finished 12th in the 30-lapper.
Saturday was a different story. Roa qualified the brilliant green #91R ninth fastest among the 31-cars on hand and placed fourth in his heat race. That positioned him on the outside of the front row for the 30-lap championship main event. Once the green flag sent the field on its way, Roa was second in turn two, but used the crossover move that has served him so well to sweep into the lead and cross the line first at the end of the opening circuit. While leading on lap two, the second place car threw a big slider on Roa and it went bad. The slider clipped Roa’s left front causing him to take evasive action and drop back to fourth.
For most of the main event Roa ran fourth, before ending up sixth at the finish. That outcome propelled him back into second in the USAC/CRA championship standings with three races to go in the 2017 season. Those three races will be contested at Southern California’s Perris Auto Speedway at the 22nd Annual Budweiser Oval Nationals presented by All Coast Construction this Thursday, Friday and Saturday. As always at Perris, Roa will be one of the favorites in the field and he still has hopes of taking the 2017 series championship. Each of the races will be full points paying races for both the USAC National and CRA Series and will culminate with the $25,000.00 to win main event on Saturday.
The prestigious running of the 77th Turkey Night Grand Prix at Ventura is two weeks away. With thanks to HD Industries, the team has entered the #91R in the sprint car portion of the show. Roa is still looking for a ride in the midget portion of the program. Any team with interest in contacting Roa with a ride and thus becoming eligible for the $50,000.00 bonus (if a driver wins both main events), can contact the 26-year-old star by using the contact information near the end of this release.
As always, the team will have its good-looking shirts in the pits at the Oval Nationals. Cost is $20.00. For those who cannot attend, the shirts are available by mail for $20.00 plus $7.00 shipping in the USA (foreign countries contact for shipping costs).
