Josh Brock held steady in his hunt for an ARCA CRA Super Series championship. In his first trip to Winchester Speedway, the Corbin, KY driver brought home a sixth place finish.
“For the first time racing at Winchester I thought we had an extremely good, stable car with long run speed,” said Brock. “In the race we were forced to re-start on the inside a handful of times, and that’s what really hurt us on our finish.”
Brock qualified fifth for the second race of the ARCA CRA chase for a championship. He raced as high as third before getting shuffled back to eighth on a restart just past the half-way point. He held stead in that position before taking advantage of a late race restart to gain a few positions and finish sixth.
“Wimmer Motorsports with Chris (Wimmer) and Travis (Sauter) worked extremely hard and my whole crew has given me peace of mind in having a car that is tuned in. I feel good about where we are at, but we will make some improvements for the Winchester 400 to fight for the championship.”
Next up for Brock is a trip to Toledo Speedway (OH) this Saturday for the third chase race for the ARCA CRA Super Series. He drove his No. 17 machine to an 11th place finish at the Ohio track earlier this year and looks to improve on that this weekend.
“In my past races at Toledo we have had great short run speed, but have been hurting for long run speed,” said Brock. “We think we have made some quality adjustments for the track and are looking for a strong run.”
