Lonnie Wheatley, PEORIA, Ariz. (June
7, 2016) – A blockbuster pair of back-to-back weekends of
racing action atop the 1/3-mile Canyon Speedway Park clay
oval kicks off with this Saturday’s Fifth Annual Summer
The action will be sizzling on
Saturday night with the Super Late Models and IMCA Modifieds
headlining the card that also includes IMCA Stock Cars, IMCA
Hobby Stocks, Dwarf Cars and Micro Sprints.
Saturday’s card will mark the third
time the Super Late Models have taken to the CSP oval this
season with Sean Bray racing to victory lane on March 26
before lightning nixed the May 7 feature event.
With lightning also putting a stop to
the Arizona Differential IMCA Modified feature on May 7,
Saturday’s card will be the first IMCA Modified outing at
CSP in over two months. Guy Norton won
the most recent feature on April 2 to close to within four
points of CSP points leader Zack Madrid, who is just one
marker ahead of Mike Strobl.
George Fronsman has a winning streak
of three in a row on the line in the Allscapes IMCA Stock
Car vs. SCRA Stock Car ranks while Chuck Thornton denied
Paul O’Connor a third consecutive Scottsdale Muffler &
Automotive IMCA Hobby Stock vs. Renegade win last time out
on May 28.
Fronsman has a 13 point advantage over
Cody Center in Stock Car points with Jason Crowe two points
ahead of Richard Bennett in the Hobby Stock points chase.
Tony Martin bested the Dwarf Cars most
recent event while Dustin Cormany stopped Shon Deskins’ win
streak at two in a row last time out in the Power 600 Micro
