After a relaxing time at the river with his wife Tailor last weekend, USAC/CRA and Southwest Series point leader Brody Roa begins a busy stretch of the season this Saturday night at Perris Auto Speedway. All told, the veteran driver will be racing his #91R sprint car nine straight Saturday nights through June 8th. The nine races will be contested on six different tracks. Three of the races will be in Roa’s home state of California and three will be in Arizona. The four races in California will be USAC/CRA events and the five in Arizona will be in the USAC Southwest Series.
Roa heads into Saturday’s race on a roll. Two weeks ago, in front of a packed house, the 28-year-old scored a hard-earned, convincing win at Perris. The victory allowed Roa to extend his advantage to 14-points in the championship standings heading into this Saturday’s race.
Saturday’s event at the famous Riverside County clay oval will be the “Sokola Shootout” and will honor past CRA car owner and president Gary Sokola and his son Mark. Gary Sokola had a long history with the Roa family as his car’s competed against Roa’s cousin Tom Roa Jr. In addition, the senior Sokola was also named president of the CRA when Tom and Brody’s father Brett raced in that series.
After Saturday’s battle at the base of the Lake Perris Dam, Roa and crew will spend the following two weekends in Arizona at the Arizona Speedway and Canyon Speedway Park as they try to maintain their lofty position at the top of the season-long Southwest Series title chase. Going into the first Arizona race on April 20th, the Garden Grove, California driver has one second-place finish and two third-place outings in the series first three races. He will head into the first of the back-to-back weekends in the Copper State with a 12-point lead in the standings.
