(Cypress, CA, May 6, 2022) Brody Roa made his first 410 wingless sprint car start in more than three months when the USAC/CRA Sprint Car Series visited Perris Auto Speedway for the "Sokola Shootout" last Saturday night. The veteran driver came home sixth in the 30-lap event after starting ninth.

Saturday's race was only Roa's second at Perris since last November. The other one was on March 26th when he donned a wing to compete with the World of Outlaws.
After qualifying ninth in the 24-car field with a lap of 16.932, Roa started fourth and proceeded to score a convincing victory in his 10-lap heat. It was his second series heat race win in four races thus far in 2022.
"I am a little out of breath, I forgot how hard the non-wing stuff is to drive," Roa joked when interviewed in front of the crowd after his heat race victory early in the night. "We made a couple of changes before the heat race. I think the wing stuff we have been doing the last couple of months is paying off a little bit. It has kind of slowed the non-wing stuff down and got our minds thinking in a different way. Hopefully, we can do that again (win) in the feature."
For the main event on the beautiful spring night, Roa and his familiar green #91R started on the inside of row four. The 31-year-old driver started making forward progress just before the halfway point in the race and was up to seventh on lap 13. Three laps later he clawed his way another spot forward to sixth. He hit the top five on the 20th circuit before slipping back to sixth on lap 26. That is where he stayed until the checkers.
For finishing sixth, Roa collected the "Shawn McDonald Sixth Place Award" in memory of the "World's #1 Sprint Car Fan,"
Even though it was only the fourth appearance in the eight races the series has run in 2022, Roa is currently 14th in the championship point standings. Counting two starts in the ASCA/CAS 360 Series earlier this year in Arizona, he has contested six non-wing races in 2022. Thus far, he has a second-place finish, one fourth, a pair of fifth-place results, and two sixth-place endings.
The busy Garden Grove, California-based racer is taking the next three weeks off before returning to the cockpit to defend his title at the "Salute to Indy" at Perris on May 28th.
The team is currently exploring the possibilities of adding some marketing partners for July's trip to the Midwest for "Indiana Sprint Week." If interested in joining forces with the longtime West Coast team for the "Toughest Week in Sprint Car Racing," contact Roa at the information provided within this release.
