Another February in Arizona brings another season of short-track racing to the region. It begins with the annual Chilly Willy contested at Tucson Speedway, also known as “The Action Track Built for Speed.”

This year brings the 10th annual Chilly Willy, an event in which Super Late Models, Modifieds, Pro Stocks, Legends and Thunder Trucks compete on the 0.375-mile paved oval over a three-day span.
