January 19, 2019 - Roth Bags Top 10 Finish in Night Three of Steel City Nationals at Collie Speedway
Friday night saw Jeff Roth and Joe Godsey in action at Collie Speedway (Collie, Western Australia) for the third round of the Di Candilo Steel City Late Model Nationals. With 19 cars on hand, Roth timed in eighth fastest in qualifying before recording a 4th and 2nd place finish in his heats. Coming in 2nd behind Michael Holmes in his Dash, Jeff locked his spot into the A-Main. Godsey followed up a 2nd place finish in his first heat with a 2nd place finish in his second attempt behind Michael Holmes. Before the start of the main event, Roth discovered mechanical issues in his car so he hopped behind wheel of Godsey’s #14G machine. Joe was given a ride in Simon McNab’s secondary car. With both driver’s changing cars before the start of the 40-lap feature, they were forced to surrender their starting spot and were sentenced to the back. Wheeling his way into the Top-10, Jeff Roth improved nine spots to place 9th. Joe Godsey was an early retiree from the 40-lap affair. (Mel Parker photo)

The following night at Bunbury Speedway (Bunbury, Western Australia), Roth came in 7th in his first heat but failed to finish in his second attempt. Godsey followed up the fastest time overall in qualifying with an 8-lap heat race victory. He also was an early retiree from his second heat. Both drivers were unable to make the call for the feature after retiring early from their second heat.

January 12, 2019 - Joe Godsey Bags a Pair of Top 5 Finishes in Di Candilo Steel City Nationals
Bentonville, Arkansas-based Roth Motorsports – with drivers Jeff Roth and Joe Godsey – embarked on the first two events of the U.S. Invasion Tour over the weekend at Western Australia’s Perth Motorplex.

Both drivers hit the ground running with fast hot rods. Godsey led the charge as he flirted with Victory Lane in both opening rounds.

“We’ve got probably the best cars we’ve ever had here,” Godsey said. “My car was really good in the opening round at Perth Motorplex, and then we were even better in the second round. My car took off from the drop of the green flag on Saturday night, and we had checked out before a late-race caution. On the restart another driver got into me pretty hard, and I got pinched into the wall. We held on for a Top-5 finish, but it was pretty disappointing, because I had a race-winning car. We’ll move on though to the final two rounds and hopefully grab a win or two.” (Mel Parker photos)

Jeff Roth and Joe Godsey returned to action on Wednesday night at Perth Motorplex (Kwinana Beach, Western Australia) for the opening night of the Di Candilo Steel City Late Model Nationals.

In a field of 28 entries, Roth notched the ninth-fastest lap in qualifying in his Car Busters #14R Coldwell Banker Harris McHaney & Faucette Super Late Model, before finishing fifth and seventh in his two heat races.

Joe Godsey recorded a new track record in qualifying in his Waco Title #14G Car Busters/ MDR Trans Super Late Model, before recording a runner-up finish and an 8-lap victory in his two heat races.

Reeling in a podium finish in the feature, Godsey landed a runner-up spot behind Billy Moyer with Michael Holmes, Ryan Halliday and Tyler Erb completing the Top-5 finishers. Roth notched a seventh-place finish in the 30-lap affair.

For the second round of the Di Candilo Steel City Late Model Nationals, Joe Godsey secured his spot into the main event with a heat race win and third-place finish in his two attempts. Jeff Roth recorded a fifth and a sixth in his heat race appearances.

Rolling off on the pole, Godsey exchanged the lead with Billy Moyer in the opening laps before jumping out to a comfortable lead by lap-15. Trying to navigate his way through lap-traffic late, Joe received contact from another driver on a late-race restart, which resulted in him making contact with the wall. He limped his entry home to a fourth-place finish behind Tyler Erb, Billy Moyer, and Michael Holmes.

Jeff Roth registered a 18th place outing in the 40-lapper.
“Whether we are at the track or sightseeing, this is just an amazing experience,” Jeff Roth commented. “We’ve been enjoying some truly great hospitality down here. It’s definitely become an annual tradition for our team.”(Mel Parker photo)
