San Tan Valley, Arizona (November 13, 2019)………It will be like an old home this weekend for Garden Grove, California racing veteran Brody Roa as he steps back into his own bright green #91R for the 52nd annual Western World Championships presented by San Tan Ford on Friday and Saturday, November 15 and 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, California clay oval, he 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 Series heading into the race in San Tan Valley. The 28-year old is 96-points out of second place and he is 89-points ahead of the fourth-place driver.

Last week at the Oval Nationals, Roa qualified 23rd out of 41-cars on the first of three nights. He placed second in his heat race and then started 21st in the 30-lap main event. He moved forward all race long and ended up finishing 13th.

Twenty-four hours later, Roa was 19th fastest of the 41-cars on hand in qualifying. He placed fourth in his heat and moved forward again ending up 12th after starting 17th in the main event.

On Saturday night, Roa qualified in the 19th spot of the 31-cars who took time trials. He placed fifth in his heat and second in one of the B mains. For the A main, he began in the 18th position, but mechanical ills knocked him out of the race early and he finished 26th.

This Friday will mark the first time Roa has driven the famous family-owned #91R since September 7th at the 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 this weekend’s action.

Both nights, pits open at 2pm Mountain, grandstands at 3pm, drivers meeting at 4:30pm, and cars on track at 5:30pm.  Adult tickets are $30-$35, seniors are $30-$35, kids 11 and under are $15, adult pit passes are $40, kids 7-12 pit passes are $20, kids 6 and under pit passes are $10.

A practice night begins the festivities on Thursday, November 14.  Adult pit passes are $30, kids 7-12 pit passes are $10 and kids 6 and under pit passes are free.

If you are unable to make it to the track, all the action can be watched live on FloRacing, listened to live on the USAC app with live timing and scoring available on both the USAC and Race-Monitor apps.
