For the second straight year Josh Brock picked up the ARCA/CRA Super Series regular season title. Last year it propelled him to winning the overall championship through the chase format over the final four races and he hopes the same for this year.
“We won the regular season championship and now we are already locked into the Winchester 400 for the championship,” said Brock. “We will use the chase races to go hard and get some more wins.”
Brock solidified the regular season title with a podium finish at the Kalamazoo Klash on Wednesday. After starting ninth, he was able to work his way through the field and even compete for the win over the final few laps before coming home third.
“I got a little tight at the end,” said Brock. “I needed the car to rotate a little better and in the center. It had amazing forward drive, if we had just a little more turn, I think we would’ve brought home the trophy. It’s always a great day when you can finish in the top-five with the CRA Super Series and winning the regular season championship feels good with all the hard work and dedication we put into the season.”
Brock had a quick turnaround as he brought out his Pro Late Model for the Motor Mountain Masters Saturday at Jennerstown Speedway in Pennsylvania. After qualifying fifth, Brock went on to lead the first stage of the 150-lap race.
The Corbin, KY driver rarely raced outside of the top-five and was able to hold stead over the final two stages for a fifth place finish.
“That was a great weekend,” said Brock. “I really thought we had a top three car. We were able to lead some laps and win the first segment, but on the first pit stop we just made a bad decision on an adjustment and had to hold on through the second segment and get to the next pit stop. We got the car pretty good and we were able to five back to fifth and run with the third and fourth place car. We are ready to go back next year with what we learned to see if we can win the big show.”
Next up for Brock is a trip to Berlin Raceway for the Berlin 251 on Saturday.
