Kevin Montgomery, PEORIA, Ariz. (October 7th, 2011) – As the old saying goes, we have saved the best for last and after a few short weeks with no racing in the Valley of the Sun, Canyon Speedway Park will return with the first of several big events on tap for the Peoria race track.  The Southwest Championships, featuring ASCS Sprint Cars, ASCS2 and The Arizona Figure 8 Championships will kick off the final events of 2011.

While it may difficult to top the 2010 edition, The Southwest Championships enters its second year and may do just that.  The unique combination of ASCS Wing Sprint Cars taking center stage on Friday night and the ASCS Non Wing Warriors take to the track with the tops off Saturday night make for a spectacular two day Sprint Car excursion.

Among the top ASCS Sprint Car drivers will be the final outing for the ASCS2 Micro’s as they head into the final two events of the year.  The ASCS2 stars will follow suite with a Friday night Winged adventure and finish off the season wingless on Saturday night.

The Southwest Championship and Figure 8 Championship will kick off a three week span of big events coming to Canyon Speedway this fall.  The October 21st and 22nd Southwest Championship/Figure 8 Championship will be followed by the Hall of Fame Classic USAC Sprint Car event on the 28th and 29th and then capped off by the Desert Classic November 4th and 5th.
