Reigning Australian sprintcar champion Dave Murcott will join a host of star drivers to contest the Piston Cup meeting at Brisbane’s Archerfield Speedway on Wednesday night.

The Melbourne-based driver heads to Queensland following his recent victory in the World Series Sprintcars Speedweek finale at Warrnambool’s Premier Speedway last Saturday.

Murcott will face stern competition with a star studded entry confirmed for the midweek meeting including World of Outlaws champion Donny Schatz and fellow American star Brad Sweet.

Schatz has continued his championship winning form in Australia by taking out all four of his events at Archerfield Speedway.

Sweet, who finished third in the World of Outlaws series, also boasts impressive form heading into the event after recording three feature race wins at Sydney’s Valvoline Raceway this season.

The Australian contingent will be boosted by two-time World Series Sprintcars champion James McFadden alongside three-time Grand Annual Classic winner Kerry Madsen, Ian Madsen and Steven Lines.

New South Wales driver Kerry Madsen has only just returned from America following a successful campaign in the World of Outlaws series, which yielded fifth overall.

The bumper entry will be competing for the Construction Solutions Sprintcar Piston Cup and $10,000 in prize money.

The event will be seen as a warm up for this weekend’s prestigious World Series Sprintcars Australian Open meeting held from January 8-9. comment policy
