Josh Brock earned a career-high Bristol Motor Speedway finish last weekend as he piloted his No. 17 Stream Restoration Specialists Chevy to a fourth-place finish. This marks the Corbin, KY driver’s third straight top-five finish in the ARCA/CRA Super Series to start the 2019 season.
“We left Bristol with another strong top-five for the season,” said Brock. “I’m really happy with the car and my crew for all the hard work they did. Wimmer Motorsports had us dialed in.”
Brock raced in the top-five throughout the 100-laps at Bristol and found himself in the mix to possibly take the checkered flag at the end. However, over the final laps he settled into fourth position. While he was able to close on the top three, he was not able to advance forward.
“I just needed the car to be a little freer on exit,” said Brock. “The car was very stable and drivable, but I was getting aero tight when I got close to the car in front of me, which made it hard to pass at the end.”
A solid finish at Bristol was not only exciting for Brock as he looks to repeat as the CRA Champion, but also because of the prestige the track offers.
“It’s Bristol baby,” said Brock. “It’s the only place we run that you have such a crazy speed sensation because we are flat out hauling ass. I really hope the US Nationals at Bristol continues to grow and becomes a great event for us every year.”
Next-up for Brock will be his ARCA Midwest Tour debut as he heads to the Milwaukee Mile for the Howie Lettow Classic 100.
