Midgets and Late Models Headline The Western Classic at CSP!

Kevin Montgomery, PEORIA, Ariz. (September 6th, 2012) – While there is an already stout list of must see events scheduled for this fall at Canyon Speedway Park, it is likely the Western Classic will top the charts as the USAC National Midgets join the West Coast Late Model Shootout for a spectacular two day event November 9th and 10th.

The USAC National Midget races will be the first in Arizona since Brad Sweet’s victory at the 2010 Copper on Dirt and the first ever at Canyon Speedway Park marking the return of the National Midget Series on dirt in the West.

“We are happy to bring the Midgets to Canyon Speedway Park,” says USAC’s Jason McCord. We had some great Sprint races there last year and are looking forward again to the October races as well as the newly-announced November Midgets”.

Ricky Thornton Jr. beat Mike Kirby to the stripe winning the final West Coast Late Model event in 2011 and the final Late Model event on the CSP clay.  The Southwest Late Models will join the West Coast Late Models for the highly anticipated return of Super Late Models to the CSP clay.

The Inaugural Western Classic will take place the second weekend of November and will showcase the fast action of USAC National Midgets and West Coast Late Models.  The best of the Best will tackle Canyon Speedway’s 1/3-mile clay oval over the course of the two day event on November 9th and 10th.
