Taking advantage of a Chase Johnson miscue, “The Pride of Garden Grove” Brody Roa (Garden Grove, Calif.) led the final two laps to win back-to-back nights at Cocopah Speedway.
Piloting Tom and Christy Dunkel’s #17R Inland Rigging / Dunkel Farms DRC, Roa earned the 15th AMSOIL USAC CRA Sprint Car win of his career over Johnson, Sterling Cling, “Cadillac” Cody Williams, and R.J. Johnson.
“KTJ” Kevin Thomas Jr. (Cullman, Ala.) began the night by scoring the seventh Woodland Auto Display Fast Time Award of his career. The pilot of the Yeley-Petty Racing #2J Avanti Windows & Doors entry recorded a time of 16.370 seconds to tie Bryan Clauson for 15th in series history.
“Chargin” Charles Davis Jr. (Buckeye, Ariz.) and Roa took the checkered flags in their 10-lap heat races.
For the second night in a row, Ricky Lewis (Oxnard, Calif.) raced Ikaika O’Brien’s #11o Sure Can LLC machine to the In Memory of Jim and Chet Gardner Hard Charger Award with an eighth place run from 13th.
Owner/driver “The Magic Man” Mike Martin (Yuma, Ariz.) earned the Wilwood Disc Brakes “Lucky 13 Award” with his 13th place finish at his home track.
The non-winged 410 sprint cars will take a break before making their first ever appearances at the Central Arizona Raceway in Casa Grande, Ariz. on March 3-4.
