The Biggest, Baddest,   Fastest Track In Arizona.

BY: GEOFF BRIGGS (April   11th 2013)

On Saturday night April   13, the ground pounding Late Models return to Central Arizona Raceway to put   on a great show for the fans. Also returning will be IMCA Modifieds, X-Mods,   and the Dwarf Cars. The fans will get their money worth as this will be one   of the few times in 2013 where the Late Models and IMCA Modifieds compete   together on the same night!

The Late Models will be   racing for $1,000 to win the feature event. The crowd favorite will be   Tucson’s RC Whitwell driving the Mike Tahtinen owned #24 ride. There will be   other drivers trying to knock down Whitwell such as Brad Williams, Lonnie   Parker Jr, Joey Moriarty, John Cornell, Jerry Fincher and local driver Wes   Hall.

Last time the IMCA   Modifieds visited the Speedway, Ricky Thornton Jr had an impressive win after   breaking his engine. Thornton held off Jason Noll of Peoria for the win. With   Central Arizona Raceway’s progressive purse, the Modifieds could be racing   for $1,000 to win as well if there are 33 or more cars. During the show two   weeks ago, 29 modifieds were in attendance, and a few more are almost   completed. Not only will Thornton need to hold off Noll, but he will have   plenty of challenges from Anthony Madrid, George Fronsman, Tim Ward along   with crowd favorites Brian Schultz and Shelby Frye.

AJ Heubner will be   trying to claim another XMod win, but he will have to hold off Jeff Hartley,   Jason George, Coolidge driver Nolan Morrow and Joey McCullough. Last race,   the XMods brought plenty of action and tempers.

Brian Stehr had won the   past two weeks and will be looking for a third in 3 weeks as the Desert Dwarf   Cars invade. Over 20 other hungry Dwarf Car drivers will be trying to knock   down Stehr including Tim Cotherman, Steve Kapaun, Ryan Henesey and local   driver Jaycen Stacy.
