Official release: Clay-Per-View Sprintcars Speedweek

December 31, 2022

Tomorrow night – Sunday, January 1, 2023 the curtain falls on a truly epic 2022/2023 Clay-Per-View Sprintcars Speedweek and it promises to do so under nail-biting circumstances.

Only twenty points separate leader Jock Goodyer and second placed Jamie Veal (basically the difference between first and second in the A-Main) as the series rocks into Premier Speedway Warrnambool for the fourth and final round.

Queenslander Lockie McHugh sits in third place just thirty points behind second placed Veal and mathematically and realistically they are the only three that can come away with the title and the $15,000 winner’s prize tomorrow night.

In both Goodyer and McHugh’s situations disappointing qualifying efforts (by their own admissions and by their own standards) have affected their series positions.

Goodyer comes into the finale with three consecutive runner-up positions and all three have necessitated big time charges from deep in the A-Main pack.

McHugh has been in pretty much the same boat.

As the series heads to Sungold Stadium’s Premier Speedway Warrnambool it’s interesting to note that the venue has fond memories for all of the five major players in points who have competed in the last two rounds at Borderline and Avalon:


Jock Goodyer won “Max’s Race” on December 17.

Lochie McHugh won the 2021 Grand Annual Sprintcar Classic.

Jamie Veal won the 2016 Grand Annual Sprintcar Classic.

James McFadden won the 2020 and 2017 Grand Annual Sprintcar Classics.

Luke Dillon has won two main events there.

Texan Chase Randall has only ever seen the place on Youtube.


Though he can’t win the series James McFadden became the third different winner in as many rounds last night at Avalon Raceway and now has a 3rd and a 1st to his credit – and buoyed with the confidence of last night’s speed at Avalon McFadden will be a major force with no series point pressure on him.

Comparing the top five drivers’ results over the first three rounds it’s an interesting study:

Jock Goodyer  2nd, 2nd, 2nd.

Jamie Veal  1st, 4th, 3rd,

Lockie McHugh  6th, 1st, 4th

Luke Dillon  3rd, 7th, 5th

Chase Randall  4th, 5th, 6th

The CPV Speedweek finale features 58 cars (the biggest car count so far) including 12 drivers who have not yet turned laps in the series – Ash Cook, Cam Waters, Corey McCullagh, Daniel Scott, Darren Mollenoyux, Grant Stansfield, Leigh Mugavin, Peter Doukas, Phil Micallef, and Todd Hobson.

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 Speedcars and Junior Sedans. Gates will open at 3.00pm with on track action commencing from 5.00pm.

Tickets can be purchased at www.premierspeedway.com.au or can be purchased at the gate from 3.00 pm on race day. The event will be live streamed by Clay-Per-View.
