Kevin Montgomery Peoria, ARIZ (March 17, 2012) – Due to the increasingly high probability of heavy rain forecasted across Arizona, Canyon Speedway is postponing the highly anticipated 2012 season opener until Saturday March 24th.

The ASCS Non Wing Sprint Cars will wait another week before rolling onto the Canyon Speedway clay oval and will be joined by the ASCS2 Micros, Southwest Modlites and X-Mods.  The Pure Stocks will make their debut on April 7th for the 2nd Annual Easter Eggstravaganza.

Going into the 2012 season Jeremy Sherman and Charles Davis Jr. are the undisputed kings of Arizona non-wing racing as the only two drivers to have earned championships in the Canyon Region; Sherman with three and Davis with two. Combined, the pair of drivers have accounted for 54 victories of the 94 races scheduled between 2007 and 2011.

The 2012 season also marks the thirty-first year of racing at Canyon Speedway Park. Under the management of Kevin Montgomery, the 1/3 mile clay oval will see competition thirty times with a rotation of eleven classes.

Sherman will lead the wingless warriors into action next Saturday Night when general admission tickets go on sale at 5pm for only $15 for adults, Senior and Military $13, Juniors 7-12 $6 and CHILDREN 6 and UNDER are free. Racing will begin promptly at 7:00pm.
