Kevin Montgomery Peoria, ARIZ (March 28, 2012) – Rick Ziehl captured his fourth consecutive ASCS Wing Sprint car title in 2011 by winning six races with four of those coming consecutively.  “The Real Deal” once again earned his nickname as he proved to be the best in the Southwest and will now lead the best Wing Sprint Car drivers in the southwest back into battle at Canyon Speedway for the 2nd Annual Easter Eggstravaganza as he aims for a fifth championship.

Ziehl will be in good company as a pair of young guns currently sit at the top of the charts tied for the points lead after a double round of ASCS National competition.  Dalten Gabbard and Josh Hodges have a 22-point advantage over the reigning champion while another host of young guns narrowly trail Ziehl.

Lance Norrick, Josh Williams and JT Imperial round out the current top five heading into the Canyon Speedway Easter celebration.

With 15 confirmed dates, plus an additional trio of to be determined dates, making up the 2012 ASCS Southwest Region schedule, the 2012 season marks the fifth season of competition for the American Sprint Car Series’ Southwest division.

Canyon Speedway will celebrate Easter in grand fashion with the 2nd Annual Easter Eggstravaganza featuring the double header of IMCA Modifieds and the ASCS Wing Sprint Cars.  The season debut of the highly anticipated Challenge Cup Non Win Sprint Cars and the return of the CSP Pure Stock’s will be joined by Bomber Mania and Dwarf Cars for a full night of Easter fun.   The Easter Eggstravaganza will get hopping 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.
