 BACA AND NOLL STEAL WINS DURING FINAL WEEKEND OF WINTER CHALLENGE! BY: Tony Steele, Peoria, Ariz. 

On Saturday afternoon Chaz Baca picked up his second win of the mini series at Canyon in the IMCA Modifieds while Jason Noll captured his first win of the 2020 season on Sunday. Cody Thompson earned his second win in the Sport Mods, splitting the weekend with Mike Wells while Andy Altenburg and George Fronsman took home Stock Car trophies. In Hobby Stock action, Jason Duggins held off Brad King to sweep the weekend while RJ Johnson also found success, sweeping both Micro Sprint features.
Modified action kicked off Saturday afternoon with 22 cars entered with Justin Yeager and Regan Tafoya earning heat race wins. Guy Norton fired off from the front row to lead the first three trips around the speedway before giving way to California racer Alex Stanford. Stanford looked to have the $1,250 payday in his hand until Chaz Baca made a late challenge for the lead. Baca closed a large gap in the late stages of the race, making his move in turn one after the white flag flew to the inside of Stanford. As the leaders raced off turn two, Baca edged out the leader on his way to take home the trophy for the second time in as many weeks. Stanford would finish second ahead of defending track champion Ryan Roath. On Sunday it was Yeager, John Parmeley and Stanford earning heat race victories before the 25 lap feature took the green. Yeager would race out to the lead and battle hard through traffic until former champion “Racin” Jason Noll fought to the inside of Yeager to take hold of the top spot as lap 17 came to a close. Noll would lead the final 9 laps en route to the win ahead of Yeager and Zachary Madrid.
Sport Mods checked in with 21 cars on Saturday, with Brian Osantowski, Cody Thompson and Clay Erickson earning heat race wins to start the day. In feature action, Erickson would pace the field for the first 11 laps while Speedy Madrid worked his way to the front from his 7 th starting position. Madrid would briefly capture the lead from Osantowski to lead lap 12 until the hard charging Thompson made his claim to the top spot. Thompson would lead lap 13 after being forced to tag the field due to a rules violation earlier in the day and maintain the front spot until the checkered flag flew, finishing ahead of Madrid and Erickson. On Sunday, with 17 cars checked in, Andy Clower and Erickson would snag heat race victories. Lyle Askren kicked off the feature from the pole position, leading the first lap of the main event before giving way to 3 rd place starter Mike Wells. Wells would lead the majority of the event, taking the Sunday feature win ahead of Clower and Thompson.
Stock Cars also had 21 cars entered on Saturday afternoon with George Fronsman, Lonnie Foss and Aaron Spangler all earning heat race wins. Feature action would see the domination of Andy Altenburg leading from green to checker to pick up his 3 rd win in 3 races at CSP. On Sunday, with 18 cars checked in, the Stock Cars would produce what could arguably be the race of the year at Canyon for the 2020 season. Altenburg and Ty Warner would pick up heat race wins before the 20 lap feature fired off, featuring 8 different leaders throughout the duration of the race. Chanse Hollatz would continue his strong showing at CSP by leading the first 7 laps before swapping the lead twice with defending champion Cody Center. Hollatz would eventually grab the lead back to pace the field until lap 17 when all hell broke loose at the front. Hollatz, Fronsman, Warner and Center became what could effectively be called Stock Car pinballs, beating and banging with a big paycheck on the line as all four drivers held the lead at some point in the final two laps. Warner would officially lead lap 19 before Hollatz forced his way past into turn one. As the leaders exited turn two, Fronsman snuck to the inside forcing a three wide battle for the lead. Fronsman would drive deep into turn three, claiming the lead one last time on his way to pick up the win ahead of Warner, Hollatz and Center.
Hobby Stocks brought 11 cars to play on Saturday with Pete Terwilleger and Brad King earning heat race wins to start the afternoon. In feature action, Steve Bitting would lead lap 1 before giving way to Brad King who was looking to build off his weekend sweep from the previous week at CSP. King looked to be on his way to his third win of the series until the hard charger of the race, Jason Duggins, made his way around the leader to lead the final 6 laps of the feature. Duggins would pick up the win ahead of King and Bitting. On Sunday, Duggins continued his winning ways with a heat race victory alongside Virgil Mcarthur. In feature action it was once again King looking to pick up his third win of the week by firing off to the early lead. King would pace the field, leading almost all of the race until the final lap where Duggins would sneak around coming to the checker, picking up the win by a mere .020 seconds ahead of King and Bitting.
20 Micro Sprints were on hand on Saturday with Ashton Torgerson, Cameron La Rose and Josh Castro all picking up heat race wins. Open Wheel veteran RJ Johnson would start off the feature event from the pole position and never look back, leading all 20 laps green to checkered. Johnson would pick up the win ahead of Torgerson and Josh Castro. On Sunday the full field saw Austin Torgerson, Johnson and Castro all starting off the day with heat race victories before the 20 lap feature kicked off. Johnson once again started on the pole but this time it would be Castro leading the first 11 laps before giving way to RJ. Castro would clip the right rear of a lap car, ending his day in a violent flip. Castro would walk away from the crash, while Johnson walked away from the field, earning his sweep of the weekend ahead of Austin Torgerson and Ashton Torgerson.
