Kevin Montgomery, PEORIA, Ariz. (April 2nd, 2011) – Tim Ward picked off his first IMCA Modified win of the 2011 championship season by topping Saturday night’s 25-lap main event at Canyon Speedway and earning a $777 payday.

The former series champ made quick work getting to the front from his third-place starting position as he held off Marlyn Seidler to capture the win aboard the Frank Lafrance-powered TRE – No. 4TW entry.

Ward was chased to the line by Seidler, with Jay Foster, settling for the show position.  Guy Norton took the fourth-place finish with Ricky Thornton Jr. racing from ninth to round out the top five.

Steve Bitting took home $500 for his win in the 20-lap Pure Stock main event.  Scott Kleintop and Todd Palmo rounded out the top three as the Canyon Speedway fans got loud for the $100 bonus to the wildest Pure Stock fans with Allscapes throwing in another $100 to settle the tie.

George Fronsman drove from the rear of the field and beat Mike Brigner and Chris McCurdy Sr. in the 20-lap Super Stock feature event.  With the win, Fronsman was able to slightly increase his championship points lead over Brigner.
