WARNAMBOOL, Australia – When round five of the World Series Sprintcars series rolls into Premier Speedway on Monday, all eyes will be on defending Australian Champion Kerry Madsen.
Madsen is fresh off a victory at Borderline Speedway in Mt. Gambier, Australia. Madsen proved to be an unstoppable force during the Gold Shoot-Out, claiming the pole and leading flag-to-flag to best James McFadden and Carson Macedo.
What this adds up to is that we will be in for a bumper night of racing on Monday as the 16 contracted World Series Sprintcars teams attempt to set themselves up for a run at not only the Speedweek Championship, but also the overall World Series Sprintcars Championship.
In the latest Grand Annual Sprintcar Classic news, 1993 Classic Champion Garry Brazier and son Jordyn are amongst the latest batch of entrants for the 2018 South West Conveyancing Grand Annual Sprintcar Classic.
Garry Brazier, who essentially opted out of the final night of competition last year after son Jordyn performed strongly on his qualifying night, will be out to prove that he beat the huge field of talent during the Classic.
Jordyn Brazier, who was eventually scored as 24th in the A-Main last January, again spent a considerable amount of time racing in the off-season in the United States and will be looking for a breakthrough win as he rolls into Warrnambool in his No. NS21 J&J.
The dynamic Sydney duo will be joined at the Classic by South Australia’s Daniel Pestka, who after missing the 2017 Classic with an injury will return to action in the No. V45 entry owned by Dave Challons.
Tim Rankin is a driver that needs no introduction to Premier Speedway’s strong fan base, with the Simpson-based driver looking to recapture the Classic form of 2016, which saw him make the 24-car-field for the Sunday night A-Main. In 2017 he was just off the pace by a fraction, eventually securing a 15th-place run in B-Main 1.
Having finished ninth in the C-Main in 2017, Domain Ramsay will be aboard the Indy Race Parts No. V2 for another tilt at the Classic, with the often-spectacular Geelong based driver looking to put his best foot forward with the aim of securing a coveted A-Main starting spot.
One of the genuine rookies in the Classic field will be Warrnambool’s Grant Stansfield, who this time 12 months ago was forging a solid string of results in the Formula 500 ranks.
Rounding out the current batch of entrants, which takes the current list to 71, is the driver of the No. V78 J&J – Chris Campbell.Campbell has been somewhat of a regular on the Eureka Sprintcar Series tour this season, giving himself arguably the best preparation he has had for the South West Conveyancing Grand Annual Sprintcar Classic.
