Kevin Montgomery, PEORIA, Ariz. (August 31st, 2011) – Since 1894 Labor Day has been celebrated across the country by workers as a day of rest and parties or festivals and is also a symbolic end to summer.  Canyon Speedway, keeping with tradition, is honoring the working men and women of Arizona with a rare double header two day racing spectacular featuring the dynamic duo of IMCA Modifieds coupled with the thunder of Total Seal Super Late Models. 

Throw in the traveling Western States Stock Car Series, the debut of PVR Mini Stocks, Super Stocks and Bomber Mania and this Labor Day celebration will one that you don’t want to miss.

Nearly six weeks have passed since the Late Models were in action at Canyon Speedway with the last go around going to Anthony Madrid in a highly contested battle between Ricky Thornton Jr and Terry Belcher Jr. who raced for the lead two and three wide for most of the 25-laps.

The stars of the Total Seal Late Model Series return for two complete events this Saturday and Sunday along with the stars of the IMCA Modifieds as they continue duke it out in a very close championship point’s battle led by Jason Noll who is one point ahead of Guy Norton going into the final races of the Championship season.

Race fans will not only be able to enjoy two nights of action but will also have a chance to win a ride in Bomber Mania.

Two nights of excitement is in store as we salute the fans with the Total Seal Late Models and IMCA Modifieds joining the Western States Stock Car Series along with the Super Stocks, Bombers and Mini Stocks.  Overnight camping is encouraged and the fun begins when general admission tickets go on sale this Saturday at 5pm for only $15, racing will begin promptly at 7:30pm.  Kid’s 12 and under are FREE!
