QUEEN CREEK, Ariz. (March 23, 2019) – Much like the last time the San Tan Ford ASCS Desert Non-Wing Sprint Car Series rolled into Queen Creek’s Arizona Speedway, the night came to a close with Kyle Shipley in Victory Lane.

Leading flag-to-flag for his seventh career win with the San Tan Ford ASCS Desert Non-Wing Sprint Car Series, Shipley crossed under the checkered flag with a 1.679-second gap over Dennis Gile who was the meat in the middle of the Shipley sandwich as Joshua Shipley rounded out the podium. Joe Scheopner was fourth with Dustin Cormany in fifth.

Moving up from 14th, Rick Shuman fought to sixth with Ryan Murphy picking three to finish seventh. Austin Kuehl, Ronald Webster, and Tyler Most completed the top ten.

Ron Gilson provided extra cash and prized to Heat Race winners with Tanner Grau and Kyle Shipley picking up the Heat Race wins.

The San Tan Ford ASCS Desert Non-Wing Sprint Car Series will see action again with a double-header weekend at Canyon Speedway Park in Peoria, Ariz. for the Sunset Showdown on Friday, March 29 and Saturday, March 30. More information can be found at
