The winter rest is over and tomorrow night Brody Roa will kick off a planned 44-race sprint car season on the “Dirt Track” at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. After racing two night’s in “Sin City,” the Garden Grove, California racer will journey south to the Central Arizona Raceway in Casa Grande for the opener in the USAC Southwest Sprint Car Series.
Unlike the other 44-races on his busy schedule, Roa will not be in his familiar #91R at Las Vegas. Instead, the now 28-year-old will be appearing in Tanner Grau’s #34 for the two-night USAC West Coast Series opener. A past champion in the series, Roa has been a factor in Vegas in the lid-lifter the past two years. In four races staged there, he has one win, a third-place finish and a ninth. His only finish out of the top 10 came last year when he was fighting for the lead when a part malfunction and knocked him out of the race and into a 19th place finish.
After a night off following the Vegas races, Roa will head to Casa Grande, which is located between Phoenix and Tucson, for the first of three times in 2019. It will also be the first of Roa’s championship aspiration races for the year. As well as pursuing the championship in the USAC/CRA Series, Roa also plans a full-fledged effort in the USAC Southwest’s Series.
There will be little time off for Roa and the crew to rest after Saturday’s race. A week from Friday and Saturday, March 8th and 9th, they will kick off the 2019 USAC/CRA campaign at Arizona’s Canyon Speedway Park. The team will open their 2019 California schedule at Perris Auto Speedway on March 30th.
