  • Continuing his domination of the Queensland Sprintcar season, Lachlan McHugh triumphed again at Archerfield Speedway on Wednesday night (January 13), scoring yet another feature race victory in round four of the Speedway Australia Super Seven Series presented by Titan Garages. McHugh led early, was demoted momentarily before regaining the ascendancy to claim his third consecutive Super Seven Series feature race and his eighth win from ten feature race starts at Archerfield so far this season. For so much of the night, Luke Oldfield was on track to make his return to victory lane, only to again find a win agonisingly out of reach, leaving him to settle for second place once more, his seventh podium result of the season. A last gasp all-or-nothing lunge from Nicholas Whell in the final metres of the 35-lap race propelled him to his best ever feature race finish in third place, pushing Ryan McNamara back to fourth, with a season-best result from Dave Fanning in fifth.
  • Bouncing back from a setback earlier in the night, Callum Walker became only the third person to secure a Sprintcar feature race win at Archerfield Speedway this season with an impeccable drive to take out round six of the East Coast Logistics Track Championship on Friday night (January 1). In what proved to be a dream start to the New Year for Walker, he qualified on pole position and led all 35 laps of the feature race to finish ahead of series leader Lachlan McHugh, who found himself deposed from the top step of the podium for the first time this season, while Tasmania’s Jock Goodyer finished third ahead of Aaron Kelly and Mitchell Gee.
  • A way of denying Lachlan McHugh yet another Sprintcar feature race victory has been found, but unfortunately it was Mother Nature, rather than any of the 40+ opponents he has faced on the track so far this season, who was responsible, with inclement weather forcing the cancellation of round six of the East Coast Logistics Track Championship on Wednesday night. However, competitors will have another opportunity to end the Gold Coast-based youngster’s winning run when they convene at Archerfield Speedway on Friday night (January 1) to ring in the New Year with round seven of the ECL Championship.
  • It seems unimaginable that, with more than 40 drivers having taken part in Sprintcar competition at Archerfield Speedway this season, Lachlan McHugh has won six of the seven feature races conducted thus far. In fact, the Gold Coast gun has won every feature race he has finished, starting with the Queensland Championship in October and then following up with victories in four of the first five rounds of the East Coast Logistics Track Championship, the only blip coming in the series opener when he failed to go the distance courtesy of a crash in the opening laps. In fact, the results so far this season have been dominated by a very small selection of competitors with Luke Oldfield, Callum Walker and Cody Maroske proving to be McHugh’s biggest threats each week and on Wednesday night (December 30) they again take on another 30+ competitors in round six of the ECL Championship.
  • Continuing his remarkable run of success, Lachlan McHugh scored his fifth feature race win of the year at Archerfield Speedway when he powered to victory in round four of the East Coast Logistics Sprintcar Track Championship on Saturday night (December 19). McHugh served up what was perhaps his best performance of the season, demonstrating patience and precision in his surge to the front as he chased down Luke Oldfield, Callum Walker and early leader Cody Maroske before taking control of the race. Oldfield was brilliant on the highline and never moved from his position on the top of the track, a tactic that has served him so well in the past and again carried him onto the podium, albeit with yet another runner-up trophy. Following the Oldfield playbook, Walker shifted up-track late in the race and would find himself in third spot at the conclusion of 30 laps, leaving Maroske to rue the missed opportunity after starting from pole position.
  • Inclement weather is the arch enemy of any speedway track operator and last weekend it was the enemy that prevailed when heavy rain forced the cancellation of racing at Archerfield Speedway, leaving competitors and fans alike to settle for a Saturday night spent doing something far less exciting than being trackside for a night of first class dirt track motorsport entertainment. Fortunately, such a sacrifice is only short term with racing scheduled at Archerfield again this Saturday night (December 19) with an almost identical entry list confirmed for round four of the East Coast Logistics Sprintcar Track Championship. However, sharing the bill on this occasion is the Queensland Midget Championship, with over 30 cars from Queensland and interstate to hit the track, with Wingless Sprints also out in force for round five of their Club Championship.
  • As has been the case at every show since the commencement of competition in the wake of a COVID-induced extended off-season, the entry list is again bulging with competitors across all categories featuring on another packed program at Archerfield Speedway this Saturday night (December 12). Headlined by round four of the East Coast Logistics Sprintcar Track Championship, the night will also feature round four of the Shock Absorber Therapy AMCA Nationals Track Championship and round five of the Wingless Sprint Club Championship, along with Compact Speedcars, Modlites, Stockcars and Formula 500 Juniors.
  • Despite a pole position start, Luke Oldfield again found himself sitting in second position behind Lachlan McHugh when the chequer fell to conclude round three of the East Coast Logistics Sprintcar Track Championship at Archerfield Speedway on Saturday night (November 28), the fourth such time that Oldfield has filled the runner-up position since racing resumed in October. In fact, Oldfield is the only driver to finish on the podium in every Sprintcar feature race at Archerfield so far this season, but once again he couldn’t match the pace of McHugh, who launched from the outside front row to lead all 30 laps to secure his sixth success from eight starts for the season. Securing a place on the podium for the second round in succession, Callum Walker brought the Mobil #33 home in third spot, with both Aaron Kelly and Kevin Titman advancing their positions to finish fourth and fifth respectively.
  • More than 35 Sprintcars will hit the track this Saturday night (November 28) at Archerfield Speedway to contest round three of the East Coast Logistics Track Championship and round three of the Petzyo Development Series as part of a triple-bill V8 program featuring Dirt Modifieds and round three of the Shock Absorber Therapy AMCA Nationals Track Championship. Also on the program, which has attracted more than 120 competitors, will be round three of the Done Right Paint Worx Formula 500 Series, along with Compact Speedcars and Open Sedans
  • Lachlan McHugh continued his remarkable run of form with an all-the-way win in round two of the East Coast Logistics Sprintcar Track Championship at Archerfield Speedway on Saturday night (November 14), securing his fifth feature race win for the season. Just as it looked as though Luke Oldfield was on track to finish runner-up for the sixth time in a row, Callum Walker had other ideas and pushed Oldfield back to third to secure his first podium result of the season. Mitchell Gee also secured his best result for the season thus far with a strong run into fourth spot, while defending track champion Aaron Kelly finished two spots back in sixth.
  • Fans of open wheel racing have more than 100 reasons to make Archerfield Speedway their destination of choice this Saturday night (November 14) when round two of the East Coast Logistics Sprintcar Track Championship headlines a huge night of dirt track open wheel action. The show will also feature round three of the TFH Midget Series and round two of the Done Right Paint Worx Formula 500 Series, along with club championship rounds for Wingless Sprints and Lightning Sprints and the biggest field ever of Formula 500 Juniors. In fact, the pits will be bursting with more than 100 competitors, including several from interstate who, in light of the fact that racing is yet to resume southern regions, are heading north to satiate their competition cravings.
  • If speedway sedans are what you favour, then Archerfield Speedway is the place to be this Saturday night (November 7) when Super Sedans emerge from eight months of hibernation to contest the opening round of their McCosker Championship Series. On what is shaping to be a huge night of tin top action, Open Sedans, Late Models and Junior Sedans will also feature on the program, along with Modlites, Stockcars and Compact Speedcars, swelling the pits once again with more than 100 competitors overall. Not surprisingly given the extended off-season that teams have enjoyed/endured, the Super Sedan entry list suggests a field that will be the strongest opening round line-up presented for quite some time, with current and four-time Australian champion Darren Kane taking on 24 other competitors from across Queensland and interstate.
  • There are 31 drivers nominated for the opening round of the 2020/2021Sprintcar Track Championship at Archerfield Speedway this Saturday night (October 17), but if the events of the last three weeks are any indication, 29 of these will be fighting for just one place on the podium. Such has been the supremacy of Lachlan McHugh and Luke Oldfield in the early weeks of the season that they have finished first and second respectively in all four feature races staged thus far, including the Queensland Championship final at Archerfield two weeks ago. Whilst McHugh has prevailed on each occasion to enjoy a perfect record of success since taking over from Robbie Farr as the driver of the East Coast Pipeline #7, Oldfield has been at his spectacular best and, thus far, nobody else has stepped up to announce themself as a threat to the domination this duo have delivered.
  • The 2019/2020 Queensland Sprintcar Championship has finally been decided, with Lachlan McHugh joining some illustrious company in successfully defending his state crown in a thrilling 35-lap feature race at Archerfield Speedway on Sunday night (October 4). Launching from pole position, McHugh led every lap of the feature race but found himself under intense pressure from Luke Oldfield who, after languishing for too long on the bottom of the track, shifted back to his comfort zone against the fence and chased down McHugh to set up a thrilling finish. Whilst Kevin Titman occupied second spot for a lengthy period mid-race, there was a sense of inevitably about the way things were meant to be and, while there was nothing he could do to counter the pace that the leading pair possessed, he certainly emerged as the best of the rest with a third-place finish. Randy Morgan and Callum Walker completed the top five ahead of Adam Butler, who started on the second row and fell back as far as tenth at one stage before rebounding back to sixth at the flag, followed by Mark Pholi, Cody Maroske, Dan Murray and Tim Farrell.
  • Defending titleholder Lachlan McHugh triumphed in the Queensland Sprintcar Championship Preliminary Feature Race at Archerfield Speedway on Saturday night (October 3), however it is Luke Oldfield who sits atop the championship standings heading into the final night of competition. Although he finished second behind McHugh in the preliminary feature, a superior qualifying performance has Oldfield leading McHugh by a solitary point. As was the case a week prior in Toowoomba, Oldfield and McHugh were a class above their rivals and engaged in a great scrap at the front of the field that ultimately produced an identical result. Third home at the chequer was Cody Maroske ahead of Brent Kratzmann, Mitchell Gee and Kevin Titman, with Aaron Kelly, Allan Woods, Callum Walker and Adam Butler rounding out the top ten.
  • Speedway fans rejoice! Racing resumes this weekend and there is a stellar line-up of talent amongst the nominations for the 2020/2021 season-opening spectacular at Archerfield Speedway this weekend. In what is a fitting way to start the new Queensland speedway season after so many months of COVID-induced inactivity, this weekend will feature the running of the Queensland Sprintcar Championship over two big nights (Saturday and Sunday, October 3 & 4). With the original scheduling of the event having fallen victim to the premature close of the 2019/2020 season as a result of the pandemic that swept across the country, the Queensland Sprintcar Championship serves as the ideal event to celebrate the re-commencement of speedway racing and competitors are clearly relishing the opportunity to get back on track with a 30-car field set to do battle at Queensland’s home of speedway.
  • An action-packed round 13 of the East Coast Logistics Sprintcar Track Championship at Ausdeck Archerfield Speedway on Saturday night (March 14) saw Bryan Mann break through for his first feature win of the season, leading from the outset and awarded the win when the track curfew forced race officials to declare an end to proceedings five laps short of the scheduled 30-lap distance. Track championship leader Aaron Kelly finished second and it was Andrew Scheuerle who would secure the final spot on the podium.
  • This Saturday night (March 14), Ausdeck Archerfield Speedway plays host to an open-wheel extravaganza with a huge triple-bill program featuring round 13 of the East Coast Logistics Sprintcar Track Championship, round eight of the American Tire and Racing Services Midget Series and the Queensland Wingless Sprint Championship. With over 100 competitor nominations once again, sedan fans have certainly not been forgotten, with Open Sedans, RSA Sedans and Ford vs Holden vs Sigma also featuring on what will be another action-packed program of high octane motorsport entertainment.
  • Gold Coast gun Lachlan McHugh joined the ever growing list of Sprintcar feature race winners at Ausdeck Archerfield Speedway this season when he survived a series of late-race restarts to win round 12 of the East Coast Logistics Track Championship on Saturday night (February 29). Following his win in the previous round, Kevin Titman maintained his fine form to finish second ahead of Mitchell Gee Ryan McNamara and Callum Walker.
  • This Saturday (February 29) might be the end of summer, but rest assured the action at Archerfield Speedway will be sizzling when round 12 of the East Coast Logistics Sprintcar Track Championship is decided, bringing together no less than five drivers who have secured feature race victories so far this season. In what has been of the most competitive seasons for some time with regard to the number of different drivers who have visited victory lane, Luke Oldfield, Brent Kratzmann, Mitchell Gee and Kevin Titman are amongst those who have tasted the spoils of victory and all five will be seeking further success when they hit the track this weekend.
