Roth Motorsports driver, Joe Godsey broke into Victory Lane for the first time in 2020 on Wednesday with a triumph at Perth Motorplex (Kwinana Beach, Western Australia).

The preliminary victory in the opening round of the Australian Late Model Championship came aboard his Waco Title No. 14G Car Busters/ Homes by Roth/ MacTrack/ XR1 Rocket Chassis/ Cornett Racing Engines Super Late Model.

“First, I’d like to thank Jeff Roth, Randy Roth, and Simon McNab for this amazing opportunity,” Godsey said. “I’d also like to thank Joshua Skelton, Paul Wittington, Gator, and my wife Abby for crewing for me.”

With a 40-car field being split into two separate groups, Joe laid down the third fastest time in his group before placing third and second in his heat races. Starting on the front row of his preliminary feature, Godsey blasted past Warren Oldfield for the lead on the opening lap and held the top spot comfortably until late when Brad Blake began closing in.

Holding off Blake’s late-race charge, Joe Godsey streaked to his first win of the season over Blake, Oldfield, Freddy Kinsella, and Kodee Brown.

Jeff Roth followed up the sixth fastest lap in his time trial group with a third and fourth-place finish in his two heats. Roth went on to record a 10th-place finish in his 20-lap feature.

Congratulations to Kye Blight and crew on the Championship. Two races down and two to go for the USA Invasion tour. I’m looking forward to Albany this weekend.”
