Summer Sizzle is Saturday at Canyon Speedway Park

By Lonnie Wheatley

PEORIA, Ariz. – The sizzle is back, as things heat up in a big way with Saturday night’s Summer Sizzle event at the 1/3-mile Canyon Speedway Park clay oval.

The 9th World IMCA Modifieds headline the June 6 Summer Sizzle along with a full slate of Arizona Differential Pure Stocks, Scottsdale Muffler & Automotive Renegades, Micro Sprints, Dwarf Cars and Mini Stocks.

Racing action gets under way at 7 p.m.

While defending track champion Ricky Thornton Jr. topped the most recent 9th World Vapor IMCA Modified event on May 9, it’s Shawn Zelenka out to the points lead with a slim four-point lead over Garett Funk.

Bo Partain is just another three points back in the Modified title chase with George Fronsman and Bryson Curry also among the top five.
