Sports Sedan racing will see two times state champion Jamie Paull at Alexandra for the first time in a long time. He will be up against Matt Nelson, Steve Kershaw, Dale Smith, Lee Beach, Josh Service, Ricky Cornwall and Matt Stampfli amongst a list of entrants that will make things tough all the way for whomever comes out with the win. Beach recently won the Enduro race at Alexandra and has a tonne of confidence right now.

In the Junior Sedan racing the state governing body Victorian Speedway Council version will see some new names in the line-up. Rhys Meakins will compete against Linken Paterson and Dillon Taylor in this class, they didn’t compete in the class last season. Meakins won the point score for this class and is keen to defend.

The National governing body supported Speedway Sedans Australia Top Star Juniors will see Chloe Sheerman, Bree Simpson and Rhys Meakins competing against Jayden Bryant and Linken Paterson. Just who wins the category is a tough question as it is in the New Stars class where Dylan Barrow, Seth Sloane and River Paterson will compete against a number of second year and first year competitors. Barrows has a few wins under his belt last season, and is the strongest credentialed on paper.

The Standard Saloons will also hit the track with Aaron Meakins and Gary Evans the likely front of the field competitors.
