The 2019 season marks the 12th year of competition for the American Sprint Car Series (ASCS) Southwest Region. The upcoming docket includes races strewn across Arizona and New Mexico.
With 18 dates on the 2019 slate, the series will spend 14 of those in Arizona borders. The remaining four races will be contested at the brand-new Vado Speedway Park, located just south of Las Cruces, New Mexico. The Royal Jones led facility, welcomes the series on May 25-26 and August 31-September 1.
The new season roars to life with a doubleheader at Canyon Speedway Park (Peoria, Arizona) on Friday – Saturday, February 22-23. The 1/3-mile oval brings the tour back to town on October 12.
Arizona Speedway (Queen Creek, Arizona) hosts the tour on March 23, May 11, June 29 and October 4 as well as the 2019 season finale weekend on November 29-30.
Central Arizona Speedway (Casa Grande, Arizona) joins the lineup with three nights on action on April 13, June 22 and November 9.
An old friend makes it return to the tour on April 27 and September 14. Those dates find the tour at Tucson’s USA Raceway. Arizona’s Speedway Jonah Trussel has taken over the lease at the state-of-the-art facility. The track has sat dormant the past few seasons.
Taking Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends in 2019, Vado Speedway Park is expected to see action on May 25 and 26 as well as August 31 and September 1.
The series lineup works together for the most part with the recently announced San Tan Ford ASCS Desert Sprint Car Series with several nights run in conjunction with each other. Only the Memorial Day weekend dates at Vado Speedway Park conflict with each other. That same weekend the San Tan Ford ASCS Desert Sprint Car Series will be at Canyon Speedway Park.
Jason Rominger will serve as the Competition Director for ASCS Southwest Region.
