Short weekend for Brody Roa at Central Arizona Speedway

Brody Roa’s trip to Central Arizona Speedway last weekend for the “Howl-O-Ween Bash” ended up being short-lived as he was forced out of action before the first night’s main event. He will put the disappointment behind him and head back to the Copper State” for the 53rd Western World Championships on November 13th and 14th.

Roa, who makes his home in Garden Grove, California, his wife Tailor and six-week-old daughter Addison Leanne trekked to Arizona for the two-night event. The 29-year-old was going to be wheeling the same beautiful May Motorsports #8M that he drove to victory on the same track in early September. That triumph made him one of the favorites for last weekend. Things started out bright enough when he advanced from a fifth place starting spot to finish third in his heat race. That earned him a row four start for the main. However, before the green flag waved, the engine dropped a cylinder and he pulled to the infield and was done for the weekend.

“Disappointed to have our weekend end early,” Roa said afterwards. “But extremely thankful with everyone involved with May Motorsports for bringing such a nice piece out for me to drive.”

“The heart (engine) will be on the operating table tomorrow,” car owner Jayson May posted on Facebook on Monday. “It will be stronger than before. Can’t wait to have you (Roa) in the seat again.”

Roa wanted to thank car owner May and the #8M sponsors Fastenal, Coopers Propane, Total Lubricants, Marina Pools, TJM Oilfield Distribution, Certex, and Biker Bruce for giving him such a fast car.
