Lonnie Wheatley, TULSA, Okla. (September 6, 2011) – Winged Sprint Cars return to Peoria, Arizona’s Canyon Speedway Park this Saturday night as the Sunoco Fuel ASCS Southwest Region tackles the 3/8-mile clay oval.

And leading the way into Saturday’s action is Las Cruces, New Mexico’s Rick Ziehl, who tries to move one step closer to a fourth consecutive ASCS Southwest championship.

Ziehl topped the first ASCS Southwest event of the season at CSP on May 21, a win that launched a run of five wins in six events.  The only time Ziehl has been denied victory lane was in the series second stop at CSP on July 23 when wingless ace R.J. Johnson bagged his first career winged Sprint Car win.

Ziehl’s recent run of victories has enabled him to amass a 202-point edge over Calvin Landis in the championship points chase, with Joshua Williams, Lance Norick and Dalten Gabbard rounding out the top five.  The rest of the current top ten includes Kyle McCutcheon, John Carney II, Steve Stone, Joshua Hodges and Joey Chester.

The extreme speed of ASCS Wing Sprint Cars joins the ASCS2, Dwarf Cars and X-Mods.  Racing action and family 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!
