Good Friday nominations reach the roaring 40s
For the first time this season, Ultimate Sprintcar nominations have surpassed the 40-car mark at Toowoomba, setting the scene for a massive Good Friday speedfest.
Led by Ultimate Sprintcar Series leader Peter Lack, the Toowoomba Top Guns will also be well represented by Andrew Scheuerle, Dave Whell, and Mark Pholi while Anthony Lambert will be piloting Darren Silcock’s Q38 for the weekend.
Pitstop 50 winner Danny Reidy will carry his excellent form into the weekend flanked by fellow Gold Coasters, Robbie Farr, Bryan Mann, Steve Rowell, Luke Oldfield, Cody Maroske and Lockie McHugh, back for the first time since the season opener.
An unsettling list of New South Wales combatants have also tabled their entries, led by former Lightning Sprint national champion Andrew Wright of Muswellbrook, who claimed a podium at the Ultimate Pink Night in December.
Also heading north from NSW is “The Smiling Assassin,” Jackson Delamont, World Series Sprintcars graduate Michael Saller, Jessie Attard and Brendan Scorgie.
The well documented list of “NexGen” racers are potentially the most determined to claim the Good Friday crown however, with Mitchell Gee, Callum Walker, and Jayden Peacock all boosted by podium finishes across the last four events.
Tickets for the Toowoomba event are available at the gate from 3pm or right now at www.SpeedwayTickets.com.au with the opening ceremony at 6pm. Details are available at toowoombaspeedway.com or the Hi-Tec Oils Speedway Facebook page.
