Brady Bacon ActionKevin Montgomery, PEORIA, Ariz. (January 7, 2014) – 2-Time Western World Champion, Brady Bacon, sets his sights on Winter Challenge 2014 at Peoria, Arizona’s Canyon Speedway.  The Winter Challenge will mark the first traditional sprint car event of the year with six complete nights of racing in just nine days as the best of the best kick off 2014.


Bacon, who won back to back Western World titles in 2009 and 2010, will make his first appearance at Winter Challenge.  A true outlaw, Bacon competes in both Wing and wingless sprint cars across the country and just completed his first full year with the Hoffman race team in the USAC National Sprint Car Series.


Aboard his own familiar 99 Sprint Car that carried him to a pair of runner up finishes at the 2013 Western World, Bacon will return to CSP in just a little more than two weeks with high hopes of standing on top of the podium.
The 2014 Winter Challenge will feature 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.  More than $100,000 in “A” Feature money alone will be distributed over the course of the blockbuster event that kicks off with the $2,000 to win Winter Challenge opener and will conclude with the $5,000 to win finale on February 2nd.


Nearly 100 drivers from across America will be expected to take part in what will be one of the must see events of 2014 and will feature the Nations top teams all gunning for one of the richest payouts in the west.
