Kevin Montgomery PEORIA, Ariz. (December 12th, 2013) – With the 2014 racing season just around the corner and Canyon Speedway quickly becoming one of the nations premier short tracks, an exciting 2014 race schedule has been released.

With the cooperation of neighboring tracks, the level of competition will be at an all time high making for extreme excitement race fans will not want to miss.
The 2014 Winter Challenge will kick off the year featuring top traditional Sprint Car drivers from around the country as the USAC Southwest Sprint Car Series faces off with the USAC West Coast Sprint Car Series while IMCA Modified aces converge in the valley of the sun for what is anticipated to be one of the largest racing events of 2014.

The ever popular Pure Stocks and Mini Sprints will join the field for five of the six winter events while the Modlites and Renegades will split weekends making the Winter Challenge a must see for 2014.
The return of the USAC Copper on Dirt is next on the agenda and will ignite the 2014 Championship Season for the USAC-CRA Sprint Car Series, USAC Western States Midgets, West Coast Late Models and IMCA Modifieds. The March two day event will feature top Sprint Car and Midget drivers from across the country joining the stars of the Super Late Model and Modified ranks as all four premier divisions will take center stage in one spectacular event.
March 22nd will feature one of two events for the Arizona Figure 8 Championships featuring the modern daredevils as they take center stage for the exciting Figure 8 spectacular along with the popular Autocross while fans will also have an opportunity to face off in the Spectator races.

Just on the heels of the Figure 8’s, the traditional Sprint Cars of the USAC Southwest Sprint Car Series will put the thrilling championship season into full swing on March 29th as RJ Johnson sets out to defend his inaugural USAC Sprint Car title. The “CSP Season Opener” will also kick off the point chase for Canyon Speedway’s Pure Stocks, Mini Sprints and AMA Modlites.
