In a career-first for Brenden Rallings, he will make his Grand Annual Sprintcar Classic debut this weekend at Warrnambool’s Premier Speedway and will have the support of a new sponsor in High Roller Energy Drinks to assist with the sojourn south.
The 24-year old racer from Woonona, NSW, a suburb of Wollongong in the state’s Illawarra region, has been racing Sprintcars for three years now and this season has been meticulous in his racing program, building a new trailer and race car for the 2018-19 racing campaign.
Having competed in several shows prior to Christmas as well as a quick trip to Premier Speedway for a round of World Series Sprintcars on December 29, which included a 14-hour drive back home to race in Sydney the next night, Rallings thought it was about time he spread his wings and compete in arguably the biggest Sprintcar show in the country.
“We thought the time was right to go and race the Classic and fulfil a dream of mine,” Rallings said as he prepares to hit the road. “We didn’t have much luck at the World Series Sprintcars event, after another car hit the wall, colliding with me and doing some damage, but I learnt plenty from that trip and pretty excited to see what we can do this weekend.”
The support of High Roller Energy Drink has also really bolstered the team’s enthusiasm, not only for the Classic but the remaining events on the team’s 2018-19 schedule. The energy drink which is massively popular in Canada and the USA will be re-released in Australia in March and April this year after being on the market several years ago.
“I can’t thank High Roller Energy Drink enough for all of their support and coming on board and I look forward to helping them getting their name back out there ahead of the release of their drinks in Australia. One of their slogans is ‘Never Give Up On Your Dreams’ so it works well with us this season.”
Apart from High Roller Energy Drinks, Rallings would like to thank Sydney Karting Warehouse, MSP Shopfittings, Bad Ass Graphics, PASS Powdercoating, BK Racing, Twin & Earth Electrical, SOS Maintenance Services, Five 4 Engineering and Ezi Hose Gold Coast for all their support during the 2018-19 season.
