As the 2019 season closes in on completion, a few changes have been made. The removal of a class from a signature event will see additional purse funds added to other divisions, while a new event altogether will hit the books for the first time ever this season.
In November, the Harvest Hustle was scheduled to host the SWDRA Late Models as the headlining division. After discussions with the club as well as another facility, Late Models will be removed from this specific show. SWDRA will be releasing news soon regarding the change to their schedule and what race will be taking place of this date, as there will be a replacement event.
As the Late Models are dropped from this show, the IMCA Modifieds and IMCA Sport Mods will benefit. On Friday, November 29th and Saturday November 30th, IMCA Modifieds will be racing $1,250 to win & $125 to start while the IMCA Sport Mods will go for $1,000 to win & $100 to start. Both divisions will see a $50 pill draw each night.
The CSP Pit Party and Awards Banquet will remain on December 14th as scheduled. Admission is $15 per person (admission includes lunch), with children Ages 11 & Under admitted free. As an addition to this event from years past, CSP will be hosting a Swap Meet during the Pit Party. If you have anything for sale, feel free to bring them along to sell at the event.
Finally, a new event will be making its way to the Canyon Speedway Park schedule. In a “twisted” version of a figure 8 event, CSP will play host to the Canyon Cross-Over Enduro on December 28th! This tricky race will have cars begin on the big track before coming off turn four to dive down on to the small track in the infield. At the completion of their lap on the small track, the cars will make their way back on to the big track as they race towards the finish line near turn one. The crossing point on the front stretch will prove to be daring as the race will be run with enduro rules (No Yellow Flags, Reds only for Flip/Fire/Dangerous Situation).
Factory Stocks, Pure Stocks, Bombers and IMCA Hobby Stocks will be legal to compete as the inaugural event will kick off at 4pm with individual two lap time trials. Heat races, consolation races and a 50 LAP A FEATURE will finish off the show! More information to come soon.
