Wolla takes Winter Challenge opener at Canyon

February 6th, 2017

Already a Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational ballot candidate, Wolla bested the 35 IMCA Modifieds checked in for the 25-lap afternoon show while Cody Laney brought his car home in second. Tim Ward, Parmeley and Brian Schultz rounded out the top five. Schultz had the most impressive run of the evening as he started 23rd in the field.

In all, 88 cars saw action Saturday at Peoria.

The Northern SportMods put on a display of hard racing as the leaders found themselves side-by-side throughout a majority of the race. Austin Kiefer tried working the inside on George for the majority of the race. The show was an exciting preview of what is to come in the 2017 season as SportMods have been added to the schedule for 10 points races this season.

Soboski cruised to victory in the Hobby Stock division. Challengers were hard to find for Soboski until near the end of the race as he bested a hard charging Joe Vlasity who started dead last after a disqualification in his heat race for failing to report to the tech area. Vlasity picked his way through the pack but could not make the outside groove work enough to get around Soboski.

Northern SportMods become fourth IMCA division featured at Canyon

January 18th, 2017

Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMods are new in 2017 at the Peoria, Ariz., venue, running each night of the Winter Challenge Series in January and the Desert Classic in February.

The SportMods join sanctioned Modifieds, a Canyon staple for more than a quarter century, and IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars and Hobby Stocks, both added last season, on regular Saturday race programs.

First local track points for the SportMods, as well as the Stocks and Hobbies, will be given for Feb. 24 and 25 Desert Classic shows.

Three hundred tons of new clay were added to make the racing surface a true 3/8-mile oval, with a new track built on the inside for micro sprint and flat track motorcycle events.

A busy, sometimes hectic off-season has also seen installation of elevated aluminum seating on the pit side of the track, relocation of the tech area next to the pit area and completion of a new paved road and bridge leading to the front gate.
