Max’s Race Attracts Big Field As A Classic Shakedown
This Saturday night at Sungold Stadium, Premier Speedway, Warrnambool, South West Conveyancing presents the 3rd Annual Max’s Race and a top-class field of Sprintcars will make the trek to try and claim the $5,000.00 pay day in honor of Speedway legend Max Dumesny.
Current Australian Champion Kerry Madsen, who will again pilot the potent Keneric Racing A1 entry, leads a hungry pack of drivers looking to de-throne the two time and defending Max’s Race Champion Jamie Veal, who will make his Warrnambool debut for his adopted Krikke Motorsports Team.
Both Madsen and Veal are amongst the latest entries for the South West Conveyancing Grand Annual Sprintcar Classic, with Madsen a three-time Classic Champion always in contention, while Veal will aim for a second Classic victory after wining his maiden Classic crown in 2016.
Having claimed the Victorian Sprintcar Championship at Warrnambool back on November 18, two-time Aussie Champ David Murcott will again be keen to put his best foot forward for car-owner Matt Eastham ahead of launching their World Series Sprintcars campaign on Boxing Night.
Having claimed the Skwid Signs Hard Charger Award at the 2017 Grand Annual Sprintcar Classic, California’s Cory Eliason will contest his first Max’s Race this Saturday along with fellow American Carson Macedo who will make his 2017-18 Australian debut on Saturday night for 2014 Classic winning car owner, Sydney based Sean Dyson.
James McFadden recorded a perfect night at Avalon Raceway last Saturday night, having also secured a win at Murray Bridge the week prior to that, he and the Milwaukee Tools Monte Motorsport team are certainly a strong chance on Saturday night.
Two of Max Dumesny’s sons, Matthew and Marcus will also contest the event named in honor of their father
A host of World Series Sprintcars contracted teams will also be on hand, with Veal, Murcott, Macedo and McFadden set to be joined by the likes of Queensland’s Kevin Titman and Lachlan McHugh, South Australian Trio Brad Keller, Glen Sutherland and Jake Tranter, while Warrnambool based drivers Jye O’Keeffe, Jack Lee and Darren Mollenoyux will also be a part of the action on Saturday before hitting the road for World Series.
Adding even more depth to the high class field this weekend will be the return of Grant Anderson along with another two-time Grand Annual Sprintcar Classic winner Steven Lines, with both drivers having recorded top five finishes just last weekend at Avalon Raceway.
Having been in outstanding early season form on his home track, Warrnambool’s Corey McCullagh will be aiming for a third straight Premier Speedway podium finish, while Sydney’s Jackson Delamont is always fast.
South West Victoria will also be strongly represented by a host of local drivers including Tim Van Ginneken, Peter Doukas, Jake Smith, Robbie Paton, Rhys Baxter, Luke Walker, Grant Stansfield and the returning John Vogels.
