Wild West Shootout Moving to Arizona Speedway in 2017 Dirt Late Model Event
January 17, 2016 – The Keyser Manufacturing Wild West Shootout moving to Arizona Speedway in 2017. Arizona Speedway is a 3/8-mile Phoenix-area oval that will host the popular six-race miniseries for the first time in 2017.
The announcement was made Sunday afternoon at USA Raceway in Tucson, Ariz., before the $11,000-to-win Super Late Model finale of the three-division miniseries that drew nearly 150 competitors to the desert.
“We look forward to maintaining the momentum of the West’s biggest winter racing event,” co-promoter Chris Kearns said. “This season we had the best competition and some of the biggest car counts ever thanks to drivers joining us from all over the country.”
Arizona Speedway, with its dirt oval part of a racing complex that includes a motocross course and sand drag strip, becomes the third Wild West Shootout track and fourth Arizona oval to host big-purse Super Late Model action in January since 2001.
