Josh Brock kicked off his chase for a Champion Racing Association (CRA) championship is style last week bringing home a third place finish at Kalamazoo Speedway.
With a chase format dictating how its title is won, it was important for the Corbin, KY driver to start the four-race chase on a solid note after finishing the regular season as the point leader.
“For the first time ever at Kalamazoo and a one day show I thought we did great,” said Brock. “Thanks to Wimmer Motorsports and Travis Sauter for really helping me. It feels amazing to start the chase in a fashion like we did. We just need to finish every lap and contend for wins and we will be there at the end.”
Next up for Brock is another first-time visit to a historic racetrack. This time it’s Winchester Speedway, a famed, high-banked half mile. The CRA chase makes two stops at the Indiana racetrack, the first coming Monday, September 2nd and the second coming October 14th, which is not only the Winchester 400, but also the final chase race and where a championship will be crowned.
“I really liked Winchester, but I’ve never raced there,” said Brock. “I’ve practiced there and I have won on a track like it before. I’m excited and ready to show our strength on fast, high-banked tracks. We will be working extremely hard to be great at Winchester because of the final race there. Of the final four drivers, first one to the line wins the championship, so we have to be fast.”
Brock and his team will practice on Saturday, September 1st at Winchester before qualifying on Sunday and racing on Monday.
