Josh Brock got back into victory lane Saturday at Anderson Speedway for the first time in 2020. The Corbin, Kentucky native put on a show with his No. 17 Stream Restoration Specialists Super Late Model and scored his second ARCA/CRA Super Series win at the quarter-mile bullring.
“The small, tight bullring reminds me of places I grew up on,” said Brock. “Every driver has a track that they go to and they just always feel they have a great shot to win. Anderson is one of those for me. It feels amazing to get a win at the beginning of the season to get things going for the team and gain momentum.”
After qualifying fourth, Brock rolled off from the sixth position with the post-qualifying invert. He immediately began working his way to the front and took the lead just past the halfway mark. A handful of late race cautions forced Brock to hold off a number of challenges over the final laps. On the final restart, Brock got a good launch and was able to hold off a hard-charging Cody Coughlin to take the checkered flag.
“I knew I had to give everything that I had because there were some hard chargers coming. I had to make sure to get as big of a lead as I could,” said Brock. “I just had to focus on being perfect and not making any mistakes. Plus, having a really good car always helps.
“I have to thank Travis Sauter, Chris Wimmer, Wimmer Motorsports, Fury Race Cars, AR Bodies and Hoglick Aggregates. Of course it’s not possible without my whole team and everyone who helps out, Whitley for taking care of me and make sure I have everything I need, and my mom and dad for all their support,” added Brock.
