Mother’s Day Race for the Cure Saturday at CSP!
Lonnie Wheatley, PEORIA, Ariz. (May 6, 2013) – A trio of drivers will try to extend winning streaks as another full night of wild racing action is on tap for the 1/3-mile Canyon Speedway Park clay oval near Phoenix with Saturday night’s Third Annual Mother’s Day Race for the Cure.
Saturday’s card, which follows an open practice session on Wednesday night from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., is headlined by the IMCA Modifieds along with the LoanMart CSP Challenge Cup Sprint Cars, Viper Smart Start Pure Stocks, Dwarf Cars and Renegades.
Jason Noll, Josh Shipley and Bo Partain each try to add another notch to the victory column when Saturday’s Third Annual Mother’s Day Race for the Cure goes green at 7:00 p.m.
In the IMCA Modified ranks, Jason Noll will be gunning for his third consecutive CSP triumph after topping the most recent pair of events on March 1 and April 6. With his two wins, Noll has closed to within two points of January 30 Winter Challenge winner Anthony Madrid in track championship points.
With Madrid holing a slim advantage over Noll, the balance of the top five includes Ricky Thornton, Jr., Jay Foster and George Fronsman.
While Noll tries to make it three in a row, Josh Shipley shoots for his fourth consecutive LoanMart CSP Challenge Cup Sprint Car win after topping the initial three events of the season.
Perfect in the Challenge Cup Sprint Car ranks, Shipley is out to the early points lead ahead of Johnny Shelton, Jr., with Jacob Hawkins, Kiley Fellars and Dean Colquette rounding out the current top five.
Noll’s pair of triumphs and Shipley’s three-peat are no match for Bo Partain, who holds the longest win streak of all with four consecutive Viper Smart Start Pure Stock triumphs.
Partain went three-for-three in Winter Challenge action before capturing the season points opening event on April 6 for Pure Stocks in front of Ryan Eaden, Chris McCurdy, Jr., Steve Shumaker and Lee Morrell. Challenger Engines has upped the winner’s share for Saturday’s Pure Stock feature to $600.
John Romero topped the season opening event for the Renegades on April 6 with Dwarf Cars set to appear at CSP for the first time of the year.
