Last night Sprintcars Queensland headed back to Hi-Tec Oils Speedway in Toowoomba, despite a less than favourable weather forecast, for Ultimate Pink Night, proudly presented by The Chronicle, and another round of the Queensland USC. We had nearly thirty cars set to put on a brilliant show, and support fund raising efforts for the National Breast Cancer Foundation, and what a night it was. The threat of imminent inclement weather meant we pushed through the program as quickly as possible and while the team at Hi-Tec Oils Speedway did a magnificent job to get and hour and a half ahead of schedule, rain at around 8.30pm, after our B-main was completed but before the A-Main could hit the track, left everyone with no choice but to abandon the rest of the race meeting. Peter Lack and Robbie Farr were set to share the front row for the start of the A-Main, with Mitchell Gee and Jayden Peacock set to come out of the second row. Mother Nature was the winner last night and while we are all disappointed we could not complete our final race of the evening, we do hope that some of the much-needed rain reached some of the places that really do need it.
The American invasion is set to kick off on Boxing Day night with the first of our drivers from the USA coming in to do battle with the local heroes.
Once again thanks to all that have enquired with regards to the weather ahead of tonight's race.

A mixed start to the 2018-19 season for Brayden Parr hasn’t prevented him from being in a front-running point standings position after the opening rounds of the Eureka Garages & Sheds Sprintcar Series.
Oval Express #212 - November 2018
Continuing what has been an impressive start to the 2018-19 season last Saturday night at Waikerie’s Sunline Speedway, Daniel Evans proved that his maiden SA 360 Sprintcar Title victory was no fluke, repeating history and recovering the mantle.
Krikke Motorsport and their new team driver Kerry Madsen couldn’t have asked for a better start to their 2018-19 season campaign together during last Saturday night’s Western Australian 410 Sprintcar Title at the Perth Motorplex, with Madsen successfully defending the team’s crown.
It was near a perfect night for the VA71 driver Corey McCullagh in round five of the Eureka Garages & Sheds Sprintcar Series at Wangaratta’s Speedway on Saturday night. McCullagh opened his account to take fast time in his time trial group that was followed by a heat win in his first heat and a second place in his second heat that would give him top points and pole position in the Eureka A Main event where Corey went on to win the event but he didn’t have it all his own way.

SA44 Dan Evans in the Evans Transport Maxim won his second 360 South Australian Title Saturday night at Sunline Speedway for RD 4 of the Mainline DynoLog Dynamometers All Star Series. At only 22 years of age Daniel has won two out of the last three S.A Title’s.
Luke Oldfield dominated Round Six of the East Cost Logistics Sprintcar Series at Ausdeck Patios and Roofing Archerfield Speedway last night, from locking in the quickest qualifying time, coming from the back of his heats to claim a second and a win, leading the points going into the dash only to invert the entire eight-car field for the start before coming home in second and, eventually, getting the win in the A-Main, he was certainly a class above the rest last night and there was little anyone could do to slow him down. Kevin Titman led the early stages of the A-Main before surrendering the lead to Oldfield a few laps in, while Lachlan McHugh started working his way forward. It was however hard to ignore the battle unfolding between Mitchell Gee and Brent Aprile as they fought over, at that stage, third and fourth. Right on the tail of Titman, until Titman unceremoniously exited the race around half way through, Gee and Aprile raced mostly two abreast, and while Aprile sometimes emerged in front, Gee always came back hard on the bottom unwilling to surrender. They were both absolutely relentless, determined and fearless, and while there were a few close calls, they also gave each other plenty of racing room. Lachlan McHugh, who came from back in tenth, joined them late in the race but it was Mitchell Gee who secured second. Lachlan McHugh snared third from Aprile in the final few laps of the race with Brent Aprile finishing fourth. Andrew Scheuerle rounded out the top five. The race was however marred by a massive crash three laps in when Steve Greer and Paul Rooks came together on the back straight, resulting in a huge crash that also involved Anthony Vanderreyden. Fortunately all drivers walked away.
KERRY Madsen started his tenure with Krikke Motorsport in the best possible fashion on Saturday night by winning the WA Sprintcar Championship at the Perth Motorplex.
It was a feature race for the ages last night at Valvoline Raceway as Robbie Farr stormed to victory in the George Tatnell Challenge, although with five laps remaining, it would have been anyone’s guess as to who would take the win as Farr, Sam Walsh and Alex Orr swapped positions multiple times.
After a two weekend layoff the Mainline DynoLog Dynamometers All Star Series head to the Riverland region of South Australia for RD4 at Sunline Speedway, Waikerie this Saturday night. “Over the past 3 shows we have travelled to S.A, Victoria & N.S.W all following the Murray River and are now heading back into SA again.
World Series Sprintcars is set to invade Sungold Stadium, Premier Speedway, Warrnambool on two occasions during the ultra-tough Speedweek part of the series, but that hasn’t stopped three of the National Touring Series contracted stars from locking in for the South West Conveyancing Grand Annual Sprintcar Classic later in January.
This is it; the final chance for Sprintcar teams to hit the track and fine-tune their preparations in readiness for the arrival of World of Outlaws champion Donny Schatz and fellow WoO star Logan Schuchart. It is not surprising therefore that a 35-car field has nominated for round six of the East Coast Logistics Sprintcar Track Championship this Saturday night (December 8) at Ausdeck Patios Archerfield Speedway. Given that this is the last Archerfield show before Schatz arrives on December 26 (with Schuchart following on December 29), the time has arrived for drivers to make sure they, their team and their equipment, are in peak condition to take the challenge to the American invaders.
