ASCS CanWest Set for 2009

EDMONTON, Alberta, Canada (March 12, 2009) - As racing is under way for several of the ASCS regions, the newest ASCS affiliate is still waiting for the snow to clear and weather to warm. In 2009 the ASCS banner will be waved proudly north of the border with the creation of the new ASCS CanWest division.

Based out of Edmonton, Alberta the first ASCS Canadian sanction is putting the finishing touches on its schedule that includes supporting events with the ASCS Northwest, Rocky Mountain and Northern Plains divisions.

"It's a very positive move for our teams to race under the ASCS standards" says interim director William Gold. "A lot of effort has been put into making the ASCS a winning formula for racers, tracks and fans and we can now work with other venues and regions to promote that".

The upstart CanWest region will be hosting the majority of their events at the home track of Castrol Raceway, including the 55th year of the Gold Cup Weekend paying a hefty $5,000 to win. Also on tap is the $2,000 to win ASCS Mid-Canadian Invitational in Winnipeg, Manitoba, that will feature the CanWest and Northern Plains regions going head-to-head for Canada's first ever all ASCS show.

The 2009 season will also see the newest region support the efforts of ASCS racing in Montana with 2 separate weekends in Great Falls, the first being a triple threat for fans with teams from the CanWest, Northwest and Rocky Mountain regions waging war at Electric City Speedway.

"I really want to thank Tommie Estes Jr. and Greg Burgess for their support in this as well", states Gold. "Both of them have been very positive about the future and direction we are taking as a group".
