Sungold Stadium Premier Speedway will hold the eighth running of Max’s Race this Saturday, December 16 which is presented by Chitticks Bakery, supplier of the well known Chitticks Pies and pastry products.

Named after former Warrnambool local and Sprintcar icon Max Dumesny, the race continues to attract the nation’s top talent joined by international stars.

World of Outlaws American professional driver Carson Macedo returns to Premier Speedway in the Sean & Felicity Dyson owned entry. Macedo is joined by Chase Randall, the reigning 360 Knoxville Track Champion who hails from Waco, Texas.

The American stars will have tough opposition with Australia’s top talent all in attendance. A total of fifty-four Sprintcars are nominated for the $7000 to win Max’s Race Feature which is also Round 3 of the Total Tools Warrnambool Track Championship.

The field includes competitors from five states of Australia including great support from NSW with twelve drivers making the trip south.

Current Australian Champion from Tasmania Jock Goodyer and Albury’s Grant Anderson return after missing the previous Premier Speedway event.

Returning to driving duties is Warrnambool’s Corey McCullagh, entered in the Kevin’s Transport V90 for his first event of the season in a new team.

Current ‘Classic’ champ Brock Hallett is joined by former champions Jamie Veal, Lockie McHugh and McCullagh.

The South Australian contingent is strong with Luke Dillon, Ryan Jones, Daniel Pestka and recent podium finisher Chad Ely all entered. They are joined by emerging drivers Parker Scott and Lachy McDonough.

With the last event’s front row starter Jye Corbett and fellow Queensland talent Ryan newton picking a winner will be difficult to narrow down.

Max’s Race will see an alternate event format being used with cars transferring to the feature races based on their heat finishing position and not points. Qualifying will consist of two flights, determined by a random draw. The top twenty-four cars from each flight will transfer into the heats with the balance heading to a non-qualifiers race to battle their way back into contention.

Late Models are on the program contesting Round 1 of the Australian Racing Products Track Championship. The current Australia #1 Brent Vosbergen has entered in the Domain Ramsay owned machine, joined by current Victorian Champion Peter Nicola and a solid field from across Victoria, New South Wales and Tasmania, who are well represented with four cars.

The Junior Formula 500’s are back at Premier Speedway competing in their 600 Junior Scramble event with sixteen nominated following their previous event on November 18.
