Peoria, AZ — (December 20, 2012) —  Tracy Hines ended his Sprint Car season on a high note by earning podium finishes in both the Western World Championships and The Oval Nationals as well as finishing fourth in the highly contested USAC National Sprint Car championship and second in the USAC National Midgets. After a successful season Hines will head back to Arizona this January with hopes of starting 2013 in similar fashion at Canyon Speedway’s Winter Challenge.


After winning three of six races at Winter Challenge 2012, Hines will return aboard the same MP Environmental Services/Schoenfeld Headers/Wesmar powered/Maxim that took him to Winter Challenge glory last January as well as the Western World podium in November. He will now set his sites on Canyon Speedway’s 1/3-mile clay oval for six races over the course of nine days on January 25th, 26th, 27th, 30th February 1st and 2nd for the very first USAC Sprint Car events in 2013.


The 2013 Winter Challenge will feature top traditional Sprint Car drivers from around the country as the USAC Southwest Sprint Car Series faces off with the USAC West Coast Sprint Car Series while IMCA Modified aces converge in the valley of the sun for what is anticipated to be one of the largest racing events of 2013. More than $100,000 in “A” Feature money alone will be distributed over the course of the blockbuster event that kicks off with the $2,000 to win Winter Challenge opener and will conclude with the $5,000 to win finale on February 2nd.


Nearly 100 drivers from across America will be expected to take part in what will be one of the must see events of 2013 and will feature the Nations top teams all gunning for one of the richest payouts in the west.
