WGR Announces Western Speed Association

Welcome to an exciting 2017 Race season!! As you can see we have changed the name of our Series. And I am excited to say, series! We will race 6 times this year, with 4 races at Wyant Group Raceway and 2 races at Edmonton International Raceway. The races at WGR will continue to be 150 laps of green flag racing, and at EIR they will be 200 lap races with a break at lap 100. A huge thank you is in order to both tracks for pulling together to make this happen so we can once again have a series that races between the two provinces.

We chose the name Western Speed Association as a tribute to past racers, and our way of pulling our two tracks together, and also creating an ongoing identity for the series in the future if we have new title sponsors.

Both tracks will call the series races at their respective tracks, The Western Speed Association. They will each have their own naming rights sponsor for the series at their track, as well as Race Day sponsors. For the four races in Saskatoon we are very proud to announce a new partnership with Market Tire as they will serve as our title sponsor for the 2017 Season. They have come on board this year and we hope that we can keep this relationship growing in the years to come.

This is a huge opportunity for the drivers, having two tracks committed to work together and expand super late model racing in Western Canada. This is just the beginning of what we can accomplish if we work together. If you look at the combined purse for all events we are looking at over $100,000, WOW!!!!!!! With both tracks working together we can strive for consistency in all areas.

The rules, race day procedures and race payouts will be posted on the Wyant Group Raceway website shortly. If you have any questions about the series you can message us on here or email westernspeedassociation@gmail.com

As you can see we are very happy to bring to you the 2017 WESTERN SPEED ASSOCIATION. Look out Western Canada the fastest cars on pavement are coming to a track near you!!!
