Tony Steele, Peoria, ARIZ (October 22nd, 2012) – Excitement is building for the 24th Annual Desert Classic at Canyon Speedway Park in Peoria, Arizona. Along with it is the growing list of sponsors for the dirt modified showcase.

Ricketts Landscaping Company will be offering up a Hoosier, while Nate with Arizona Differential has sponsored a third member to be randomly given away. We also have food for two at the top of the hill thanks to Wild Horse Restaurant.

Sunoco Racing Fuel has jumped on board with a barrel of fuel to be given to the top finisher both Friday and Saturday night with a Sunoco sticker on their machine.

Klein Racing Engines has generously added $500 to the Non Qualifier pot on Saturday, while Soloman Concrete has offered up prize money to be awarded for Hard Luck and Hard Charger awards during the finale. Beaver Stripes will be putting some gas money in the pockets of the driver making the Longest Tow.

Those of us from CSP would like to thank these sponsors for coming on board for this year’s Desert Classic.
