Stock Car Shootout 100 this Weekend at CSP!

 

Lonnie Wheatley, PEORIA, Ariz. (August 31, 2016) – The always ultra-competitive Stock Cars take center stage this weekend at Canyon Speedway Park with a $2,000 winner’s share posted for the Arizona Differential Stock Car Shootout 100 presented by Allscapes Racing that takes place on Saturday and Sunday.

 

While the Allscapes IMCA Stock Cars vs. SCRA Stock Cars battle it out for the big money atop the 1/3-mile clay oval, other classes in action on both nights include IMCA Modifieds, IMCA Hobby Stocks, Dwarf Cars and Mod Lites.

 

Both nights of racing are set to go green at 7:00 p.m.

 

The Stock Car Shootout 100 portion of the weekend gets under way with qualifying and twin 15-lap Shootouts on Saturday night that will set the stage for Sunday’s $2,000-to-win Stock Car Shootout 100 lapper.

 

After Matt Martinez topped the previous pair of Stock Car Shootouts, Modified ace Ricky Thornton, Jr., has captured Stock Car Shootout honors over each of the past two years.

 

George Fronsman has been the one to beat in Stock Car action at CSP this year, winning six of the last seven feature events to build up a 30-point lead in the title chase over Cody Center with Terry Skorick a distant third.

 

The only drivers to deny Fronsman victory lane since the regular season began have been Center in the February 26 season opener and then Nate Warren on June 18.

 

In the Arizona Differential IMCA Modified ranks, defending Stock Car Shootout 100 winner Ricky Thornton, Jr., returned to Arizona to top the most recent round of action on July 30 after Jason Noll had topped the previous two events.

 

Mike Strobl is the current CSP points lead in IMCA Modifieds with a 34 point advantage over Steve Stultz and then Nate Warren one more point back in third.

 

While Chuck Thornton topped the most recent Scottsdale Muffler & Automotive IMCA Hobby Stock vs. Renegade feature, it’s Richard Bennett with a five point advantage over Jason Crowe in the title chase.

 

Cory Brown and Tony Martin have traded wins over the last four Dwarf Car feature events whiles John Priest won the most recent Mod Lite main.
