INDIANAPOLIS – Australia’s Mitchell Wormall is set to return to the United States in mid-June for a 26-race schedule that includes MOWA Illinois Speedweek in July.
Wormall made his U.S. debut in 2016 with the MOWA series during Illinois Speedweek.
“Last year when we came over for a trial, to see how everyone operates, how hard it would be, etc.,” Wormall said. “We came back and reviewed all the information that we had attained. Everything about racing in America was easier, as far as, there were little nomination fees (that could be done on the day, not one and a half weeks before like in Australia). Tires, parts and methanol was available at the track…it was just easier.”
He won’t be alone when he comes to the States. He’s bringing with him his entire crew from Australia.
“We will do 26 shows in under a two-month period,” said Wormall. “We have two brand new cars getting put together at Kaedings (in California). We’ve bought a fifth wheeler trailer from Bloomington, Ind., and are currently on the look-out for a dually with a pickup point for a fifth wheeler.”
Wormall is excited to run with the MOWA series again during his second summer racing in the United States.
“I was very impressed by the MOWA series last year,” Wormall said. “From what I gathered, they are a small series, but they put on excellent shows while I was there. They were all very well organized and presented. The tracks, the track staff, and all of the MOWA officials were very helpful towards us. They impressed us that much that we are coming back to do it all again, hopefully with much better outcomes.”
Wormall hopes to get better and better during his summer excursion to America.
“I don’t really have any goals as such,” said Wormall. “I have a few races that I want to win, and I will win in time, but all I want is for me to be the best I can while keeping a cool steady head. Everyone says that their goals are the Australian Sprintcar Classic, or the Knoxville Nationals. I would love to win these races and when that day comes, if it comes, I will know that I am the best I will ever be. I have done a lot in such a little time and I just want to be improving each and every year.”
Wormall’s first event will be June 16 at Attica (Ohio) Raceway Park as Ohio Speedweek kicks off for the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions.
