If you weren’t already planning on attending Sungold Stadium Premier Speedway this weekend, then change your plans!

The field for Max’s Race presented by Chitticks Bakery has attracted an absolute stellar field, where picking a winner from the 55-car field will be almost impossible.

Back in Australia to open his account for the 2022-23 Australian season is World Of Outlaws star James McFadden who will make his debut with Hodges Motorsport. He is joined by another World Of Outlaws star, American Carson Macedo, who already has a win in his 2022-23 Australian campaign. Carson has again teamed up with the ultra-professional Dyson Motorsports team.

The American contingent continues with Carson’s brother Cole Macedo joining the field with thanks to Victorian front-runner Brett Milburn, offering Cole a car so he can compete this weekend.

Our Aussie talent is strong, represented with current Australian Sprintcar Champion Marcus Dumesny and Classic champion Lochie McHugh who is campaigning the Domain Ramsay owned VA71. Jamie Veal certainly cannot be discounted, having scored six feature wins since Darwin in August, achieving wins in two different teams.

Grant Anderson, who showed fantastic form in the feature last weekend at Avalon is a regular at the front runner at Warrnambool, while Corey McCullagh will be looking for a strong result in his first hit out at his home track this season. Morwell resident Bobby Daly who was the top point scorer last week at Avalon, is another who could find himself at the pointy end.

Interstate entrants are strong, with Tasmania and South Australia alone having ten cars. Jock Goodyer and now Warrnambool regular Tate Frost are representing the next generation of talent with a feature win in Max’s Race a real possibility. Regular mainlander Tim Hutchins is back along with Brody Appleby, a second-generation Sprintcar pilot making his Warrnambool debut, following in the footsteps of father Dion, who also made several visits to Premier Speedway during his career.

The South Australian entrants are formidable with Lines, Murcott, Jones, Pestka, and Dillon having all taken their fair share of wins against quality opposition.

The event is also Round 1 of the Total Tools Warrnambool Track Championship which pays an attractive $10,000 first prize.

The racing program also features Late Models and Junior Formula 500’s. Gates will open at 4.00pm with on track action commencing from 5.00pm.

Tickets can be purchased at or can be purchased at the gate from 4.00 pm on race day. The event will be live streamed by Fitzmedia Productions. The Premier Speedway Facebook page will provide the live stream links prior to the event.
