Sprintcars return to Morris Park for big day of racing

RACING returns to Morris Park Speedway at Dubbo this Saturday night.

Saturday night will see the mighty 360 Sprintcars hold a round of their NSW country series, with some competitors visiting Dubbo for the first time.

Former promoter of Grafton Speedway, now organiser of the 360 Sprintcars NSW Country Series, Will Newton says the drivers are very keen to have a round at Morris Park and bring their division to Central West NSW.

"We've heard so much about how fast the Dubbo track is and we can't wait to get there. We're also thankful to Leanne (Anning) for including our division in the Morris Park calendar this season," he said.

Kev Trussell (#5), Russell Hinds (#30), Ron Hendrickson (#50), Anthony Vanderreyden (#72) and Brad Trussell (#88) make up the Queensland contingent. Brandon Haynes (#18), Will Newton (#27), Aaron Ackely (#61), Robert Hull (#64) and Matt Moore (#74) make up the northern NSW line-up and Shaun Forrell (#8) is heading to Dubbo from Wagga Wagga in the state's south.

The last 360 Sprintcars round on November 24, saw Brendon Haynes take the chequered flag with Brad Trussell second and Will Newton making the podium in third place. There will be some fierce racing action to take this round for the series points score.

Saturday will also see the return of the Newcastle Street Stockers who are always eager to make the trip to Dubbo.

Secretary of the Newcastle club, Maria Edmonds said: "Our drivers love coming to Morris Park because they get a lot of track time, the people of Dubbo always make us feel welcome and its great night of racing. We've made some great friends over our years of racing at Dubbo and we love the country hospitality."

About 20 drivers will contest the Morris Park round of the Newcastle Street Stockers Pit Crew/EFI Spares club championship. There will be some great battles for the championship points score in this division.

As well as the visiting competitor groups, Morris Park's local divisions will continue to wow the crowd with their awesome racing.

The production sedans will contest another round of their Dubbo City Speedway Club Championship along with the NSW Speedway Sedans Association Dual Track Championship between Gilgandra and Dubbo club drivers.

SSANSW secretary John Gore announced the association's support for this division at a recent Speedway NSW/ACT Board meeting.

He said it was one of the fastest growing sedan divisions in the state and the SSANSW were pleased to show their support to promote this division by initiating a $1000 prize pool for the Dual Track Championship between both local clubs where the numbers have increased significantly during the past few seasons.
