The sun sets between showers at Warrnambool

A wild week of Warrnambool weather caused chaos on the second night of the Grand Annual Sprintcar Classic, with the feature rescheduled to Sunday afternoon.

Rain ensured a frustrating night for a massive crowd at Premier Speedway with a host of interruptions throughout the evening.

The final straw came as heavy rain again fell just as the field was pushed off for the 30-lap final.

The feature will now be run at 1600 this afternoon, before the full night three schedule is held.

Local Peter Doukas is the unlikely pole-sitter ahead of John Vogels and American Jason Johnson.

The rain of Saturday came after two days over 40 degrees in the coastal town, creating havoc for track staff.

It sets up a blockbuster Sunday for the biggest prize in Australian speedway.

The program begins with the Saturday night feature, followed by a final round of heats for all drivers, and twin D, C, and B Mains.

The night culminates with the 40-lap, $30,000 Classic finale.
