Josh Brock kicked off the 2020 ARCA/CRA Super Series season in solid fashion by securing a top-10 finish at Lebanon I-44 Speedway.
Brock and the Stream Restoration Specialists No. 17 team dug deep to score the seventh-place result in their first trip to the Missouri oval.
“It was a really nice facility and hopefully we will be able to go back there again with CRA,” said Brock. “I’ve been waiting all winter to get the CRA season started. I was hoping to be at Nashville last weekend, but due to COVID that was not possible. We are just glad to be able to race and it was a great first experience at I-44.”
Brock qualified his No. 17 Stream Restoration Specialists machine in the 12th position. After falling back outside the top 15 during the first quarter of the race, he battled back inside the top ten by the halfway point and continued to pick off a few more cars for that seventh-place finish.
“We had fun and a decent car,” said Brock. “We just needed to be able to roll more corner speed, but the car had really good long run speed. We have some good notes and walked away without any damage, which is always a good thing. We always want to win, but seventh at a big race to start the season is not terrible.”
Next up for Brock is the second race on the ACRA/CRA Super Series schedule on June 20th. Originally scheduled for Flat Rock Speedway, the series will now visit one of Brock’s favorite tracks, Anderson Speedway.. The Corbin, KY driver grabbed his first Super Late Model win at the Indiana track and seems to always contend for the win.
“I’m always excited to run Anderson and wish we were able to run there a few more times throughout the year,” said Brock. “We always have great speed there and are always fighting for the win. It takes patience, the car to be able to remain stable with you the whole race and a little bit of luck is always the secret recipe to getting another win there.”
