SAN TAN VALLEY, Ariz. – It will be like an old home this weekend for veteran Brody Roa as he steps back into his own bright green No. 91R for the 52nd annual Western World Championships presented by San Tan Ford.
The two-night event takes place on Nov. 15-16 at Arizona Speedway.
Heading into last week’s Oval Nationals at Perris Auto Speedway, Roa led the USAC Sands Chevrolet Southwest Sprint Car Series championship standings by 10 points.
After three nights of racing on the Riverside County clay oval, Roa increased his advantage to 26 points going into this weekend’s final two races of the year.
In addition to his point lead in the USAC Southwest Sprint Car Series, Roa is third in the USAC/CRA Sprint Car Series heading into the race in San Tan Valley. The 28-year old is 96 points out of second place and 89 points ahead of fourth.
This Friday will mark the first time Roa has driven his family-owned No. 91R since Sept. 7 at Santa Maria Raceway.
While the car has sat idle since then, it has been ready to race, and the crew will only need to make a few minor adjustments to get it ready for the action at Western World.
