Out of the Dust Rises Tucson International Racewayby Keith Ames on Jun. 09, 2012, under Auto Racing, Dwarf Cars, Modifieds, sports, Sprint Cars, Tucson International Raceway, Winged Sprint Cars
Tucson International Raceway is off to another exciting season and living up to its reputation as the Best Dirt Track in the West. The combination with both the difficulty of finding a source for clay and with the extremely dry weather Southern Arizona has experienced in recent months, the racing surface has been dusty.
This past week T I R has added much needed clay to the racing surface and fans and drivers will have racing conditions they have grown accustomed too. The owner and General Manager, Pat Robley, said: ” With construction slow in our area, the clay pit normally used for clay is closed and it has been difficult to find clay.”
Shane Madson to the Rescue! Shane an avid race fan and owner of Sierra Mining and Crushing located clay. According to Robley: ” We are adding 500 tons of clay and the racing surface will be as nice as can be for the Saturday night races. Dave Bowen has layed down the new surface and is preping the track for an exciting and entertaining night of racing.”
Like the Phoenix rising from the Ashes, TIR is Rising from the Dust!
