Racing past Chris Gansen on the second lap, Brody Roa (Garden Grove, CA) ran away from the field to win his second “Doug Fort Memorial” at Santa Maria Raceway. Driving the BR Performance #91R HD Industries / Burris Racing Maxim, Roa scored his second AMSOIL USAC/CRA Sprint Car victory of the campaign and the eighth win of his career. “Thunder” Tommy Malcolm, fast qualifier Jake Swanson, “The Big Game Hunter” Austin Williams, and hard charger T.J. Smith followed Roa to the checkered flags.

Using an iron block 360 cubic-inch engine, Smith earned the Specialty Fasteners Hard Charger Award with a tenth to fifth place run. Chris Gansen claimed the Wilwood Disc Brakes “Lucky 13 Award” with a thirteenth place finish in the main event.

Swanson scored his 18th career Woodland Auto Display Fast Time Award by posting a time of 13.537 over the 18-car roster.

The night’s 10-lap heat race victories went to Malcolm (Extreme Mufflers First Heat) and Smith (Circle Track Performance / Ultra Shield Race Products Second Heat).

The next event for the AMSOIL USAC/CRA Sprint Cars will be next Saturday, July 13th, at Perris Auto Speedway’s co-sanctioned clash with the USAC SouthWest Sprints.
