Thirty-nine drivers from four states are set to contest the 2022 Australian 360 Sprintcar Championship at Murray Bridge Speedway this Saturday and Sunday.
The field will include defending champion Brett Milburn and three former national champs: four-time winner Ryan Jones, Chad Ely and inaugural champion Stephen Bell.
Victoria leads the entry list with 20 entries including Brenten Farrer, Grant Anderson, Jordyn Charge, Tim Van Ginneken and Charles Hunter; while the host state has 16 locally registered cars, including Matt Egel, Daniel Pestka, Mark and Steven Caruso, Hayden Pitt, Brendan Guerin and Lisa Walker.
Stacey Galliford, from Broken Hill, is the lone New South Wales entry; while Libby Ellis and Nicholas O’Keefe will make the trek from Queensland.
The championship will be held over two nights, with the official practice and calcutta to be held on the Thursday night.
Also racing on the two-night program will be the formula 500s in their annual 65 Roses race, to raise awareness for cystic fibrosis, along with street stocks.
Classics will also run a series of demonstration runs on night two.
Gates will open at 5pm on Friday, with action from 6pm; and at 4pm on Saturday for a 5.30pm start.
Tickets will be available at www.speedwaytickets.com.au.
