The Hall of Fame Classic and More from Arizona Speedway

Hall of Fame Classic

San Tan Valley, ARIZ. (September 30, 2018) – Sprint Car racing fans were able to get their fill this weekend as Sprint Cars were racing on the dirt oval on both Friday and Saturday night.  The Hall of Fame Classic USAC CRA 410 cars ran along with the San Tan Ford Desert Sprint Car Series and Mini Sprints.

Anaheim, CA’s Jake Swanson took the win in the opener on Friday night.  Brody Roa finished second and Damion Gardner finished third.

Saturday night it would be Damion Gardner’s driving that would take him to the checkered flag after passing R.J. Johnson on lap 17.  Logan Seavey finished second and Brody Roa finished third.  Johnson crossed the finish line 4th.

San Tan Ford Desert Sprint Car Series

San Tan Ford Desert Sprint Car Series drivers raced hard during their feature race.  In the end, Kyle Shipley took the checkered flag.  Dustin Cormany took second and Zachary Madrid crossed the finish line third.

Mini Sprints

With three cars in the field, the Arizona Micro Sprint drivers had their hands full as there was no traffic on the track to slow the lead driver.  Phoenix’s Paul Martin dominated the race and took the win.  Josh Castro of Peoria took second and Cam Verde’s Mason Keefer took third after having trouble mid race.  It was their first appearance at Arizona Speedway in six years.

Five Arizonans were inducted into the Arizona Motorsports Hall of Fame during the race on Saturday night.  They include Marty Wilcox, Terry Belcher Sr., Dennis Matousek, Jim Rodgers, and Eric Wilkins.

Marty Wilcox started racing go-karts when he was 12 years old.  As he grew up he went on to race flat track motorcycle and stock cars before racing for 25 years in winged sprint cars.  Wilcox has over 100 feature wins across the Southwest and has twice been named mechanic of the year.  He has four Sprint Car Oweners of Arizona championships.
