WARRNAMBOOL, Australia – Kokomo, Indiana’s Parker Price-Miller is the latest American among a number of last-minute entrants for the South West Conveyancing Grand Annual Sprintcar Classic.
The group also includes the likes of Jordyn Brazier, Ryan Jones and Steven Lines.
The most recent batch of entrants has pushed the field above 90 entries in what promises to be a hotly contested three nights of competition from Jan. 18 to 20.
Having set the fastest qualifying lap on either night of last year’s Grand Annual Sprintcar Classic, Price-Miller immediately made most good judges sit up and take notice as he commenced his maiden Classic in fine style.
While the dream of making, and ultimately winning the 40-lap Sunday night final, eluded him, Price-Miller certainly showed enough to warrant a return trip for HRP Specialties and the Harding Family based out of Western Australia.
At the Knoxville Nationals, Price-Miller and Gio Scelzi were teammates under the Indy Race Parts banner and neither driver disappointed car owner and team principal Bernie Stuebgen, with Price-Miller making the big dance via a B-Main win before eventually wheeling the No. 71p entry to 18th place during the 50-lap final.
On his second visit to the Classic, the fan base of Price-Miller is sure to grow as this talent sets about attempting to make another piece of Classic history.
His trip will be supported by HRP Specialties, Chalk Stix Torsion Bars, Rentco, Jolly Good Auto Electrics, Carahaul and Motorsport Connections.
Lines, the 2011 and 2013 Classic winner, is one of the most respected drivers in Australia, with his car speed and never-say-die attitude lending himself to a legion of fans, especially on the banks of Mt. Max at Sungold Stadium.
Jordyn Brazier is another top end combatant in the Classic field, plying his craft at Sydney Speedway again this summer on the back of an American campaign that again took in the Knoxville Nationals.
Having claimed a start as the first emergency at last year’s Classic, Jordyn was able to move forward to an eventual finishing position of 17th in the Classic finale.
Hard-charging South Aussie duo Daniel Evans and Ryan Jones also join the field amid a strong group of drivers that has made the entry list grow considerably in the past few days.
