PEORIA, AZ (May 6, 2020) — USAC Western Director Chris Kearns has announced that the May 16th “Duel at the Diamond” featuring the USAC SouthWest Sprint Cars at Canyon Speedway Park has been cancelled. The United States Auto Club (USAC) and track promoters are working on options to reschedule events once racing resumes.
The “Duel at the Diamond” is the third event on the USAC SouthWest Sprint Car Schedule that has been lost due to the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic.
To date, Jake Swanson (Anaheim, CA) claimed both nights of the “Steve Stroud Memorial” on February 14th and 15th at Canyon Speedway Park. When the series returned to Peoria on March 6th and 7th, C.J. Leary (Greenfield, IN) topped both nights of the USAC/CRA co-sanctioned “Spring Showcase.”
Everyone is encouraged to stay inside and follow the guidelines set by city, county, state, and federal government officials.
