Peoria, AZ — (March 13, 2013) — After a successful 2012 inaugural season the Canyon Speedway Challenge Cup Sprint Car Series embarks on a new season of opportunity this Saturday night at the 2013 Season Opener.
The series, which blossomed in 2012, continues to grow and will showcase many of the same talented up and coming Sprint Car drivers all aiming for the 2013 crown. However, there will be a slight change for the series as LoanMart announces their intentions to become the title sponsor for the series.
The California based company will come aboard for the 2013 season allowing for an increase in the weekly purse money. Each of the 20 A-Feature positions will be increased boosting the winners share to $400 to win with each starter receiving a minimum of $100.
Matt Lundy captured the inaugural crown and is ready for his title defense this Saturday night as the Challenge Cup Sprint Cars join the stars of the USAC Southwest Sprint Car Series, Mini Sprints and AMA Modlites for the Canyon Speedway 2013 Championship Season Opener.
Saturday’s action will also mark the first outings of the season for the LoanMart Challenge Cup Sprint Cars and AMA ModLites, while the Micro Sprint Cars return to action after taking to the track for three rounds of the Winter Challenge that concluded in early February.
Tickets for this Saturday’s Season Opener at CSP are $15, with a $2 discount for Military, Seniors and Students. Children ages 7-12 are $6, with children 6 and under admitted free. VIP passes are available for $20.
