Van Zeeland wins epic Late Model Title
Posted 5th May, 2013.
The build up was big and the racing didn't disappoint, as a star studded field of Late Models turning out for the Queensland Late Model Title held at the annual show meeting on Saturday Night.
Gold Coast's Aaron Van Zeeland raced down and passed Dave Robertson on the second last lap to win a nail biting Queensland Championship in front of a massive show crowd at the Kingaroy Speedway. Van Zeeland started from pole position but soon dropped back to second position as Robertson surged from down the back of the field around the fence to open up a big lead during the thirty lap championship race. Robertson who stayed on the top ran a brilliant race, but Van Zeeland edged closer to narrowly slip pass and become the first ever Queenslander to win the Queensland Title. Sydney Duo Dave Robertson and Ben Nicastri rounded out the top three in a wonderful night of Late Model racing at the Kingaroy Speedway.
Earlier in the night Sydney's Graham Lillford smashed the old lap record by lowering it to 13.798 seconds, which is over half a second fastest then the old mark.
Heat wins during the night went the way of Nathan Disney, Graham Lillford, Ben Nicastri and Aaron Van Zeeland. Local hopes Travis and Ashley Barron unfortunately got caught up in some opening lap incidents which saw both retire early from the feature race.
In the other events on the night, newly crowned New South Wales Champion David Jacobi won a brilliant Modified Sedan feature race by the narrowest margin over Todd Doyle and Gavin Fletcher. Kingaroy's Brett Barron was the best of the locals finishing fourth just behind the front three which battled epically for the duration of the Modified Sedan feature race.
The Street Sedan feature was taken out by Queensland Champion Josh Arthur who showed his class during an impressive display of driving during the night. Bundaberg's Mostert Woodrow finished second just ahead of Kingaroy's Jack Stead.
Moranbah's Brandon Atto won the Junior Sedan feature race from Carter Armstrong and Steven English.
The club now breaks for the off season and prepares for a massive season which gets underway in September. For all the details of the proposed 2013/14 calendar, get out the calendar page on this website.

Shane MacDonald wins Queensland Title
Posted 7th April, 2013.
Shane MacDonald proved last night at Kingaroy, that a week is a long time in Speedway, when he won the Queensland Modified Sedan Title, at the Kingaroy Showgrounds venue.
A week previous MacDonald failed to qualify for the A Main in the Australian Title, ultimately finishing fifth in the B Main.
Last night, in front of a near capacity crowd, Shane MacDonald would start the gruelling 40 lap main event from position eight, while newly crowned National Champion Aidan Raymont would start on pole position.
Raymont and fellow front row starter Brett Barron traded the lead early, while behind them Greg Worling, Mark Raymont and David Jacobi continually traded places through the first ten laps.
MacDonald had moved from eighth to sixth in the open quarter of the race, before rapidly moving to third. Raymont shrugged off the challenge from Barron, who dropped back to as low as fifth, with Raymont now having to contend with Mark Raymont, and soon after MacDonald. The three way battle, saw Mark Raymont momentarily hold the lead after fifteen laps, as the National Champion went from first to third, with the Raymont duo separated by MacDonald.
A lap later MacDonald took the lead, as Aidan Raymont passed Mark Raymont to move back to second. At the half way mark, the race had turned into a thriller, with Barron, Jacobi and Brett Baxter filling the top six places. With ten remaining, Baxter made his move, taking fourth place, as the battle between the Raymonts continued, with Mark moving back ahead of Aidan. Mark Raymont hit the lead with seven laps remaining, setting up a thrilling finish.
Mark Raymont held the lead for two laps, before MacDonald took it back again with five laps remaining, with a great outside move, with MacDonald persisting on the outside throughout the 40 laps.
The demise of Aidan Raymont with a broken right rear shock, saw Baxter move to third, as Raymont chased Macdonald to the chequered flag. In a thrilling finish, MacDonald took the victory by a mere 0.173.
Behind MacDonald and Raymont, Brett Baxter finished clear in third with David Jacobi holding fourth while Gavin Lorensen and Glenn Pagel, who both finished on the National podium a week prior, would round out the top six.
The Modified Sedan action continues this weekend, with the NSW State Title at another Showground, Lismore.

Cancelled - 9th March Race Meeting
Posted 3rd March, 2013.
After yet again another rain enough that has absolutely saturated the South Burnett Region over the past couple of days, the South Burnett Speedway club has decided to cancel next weekend's race meeting featuring Sprintcars, Late Models, Lightning Sprints and Wingless Sprints.
After an inspection of the complex and track today and with the forecast of more rain to come during the week, the commonsense decision to cancel the event has been made.
The Kingaroy Speedway now turns its attention towards our next massive meeting which will be the Queensland Modified Production Title on 5th & 6th April.
Australian Sedan Grand Prix is back for 5th & 6th April
Posted 7th February, 2013.
Triple feature events announced for 9th March
Posted 5th February, 2013.
Kingaroy Speedway roars back to life on 9th March in a huge way when the Sprintcars return to the showgrounds for a round of the Queensland Club Championship which will attract the finest V8 Sprintcars in the state. A star-studded line-up of man and machine will be on hard and for those that haven't witnessed V8 Sprintcars in full flight around Kingaroy Speedway, make sure you mark this one in the book because there is nothing more exciting then the "things with wings" doing laps of the showgrounds side by side in only 12 seconds.
But it just won't be Sprintcars head lining the show, when for the first time in history the South Burnett Speedway prepare to present the Triple Feature events for V8 Late Models, Wingless Sprints and Lightning Sprints all on the same night.
After the success of 20/20 cricket and the shortened version of the game, the Kingaroy Speedway who is always looking at making the sport more entertaining, more user friendly and most importantly giving the fans and stands more bang for buck have come up with the Triple Feature concept in which all heat races for the three divisions (Late Models, Wingless & Lightning Sprints) will be scrapped on the night and they will only compete in 3 feature races. That's right, no heats, just three feature races with all the cars on the track at once and plenty of great action.
So instead of endless amounts of heat racing all night, the more exciting and entertaining program will kick off under lights at 6:30pm and should be finished by no later then 10:30pm.
Hotlap's for all divisions including Time Trials for Sprintcars will be held prior to racing commencing from approx 5:45pm, but as soon as the anthem is sung the show will kick off with the first feature race of the night at 6:30pm.
Sprintcars will run a normal Club Championship format with 2 rounds of heat races and a 30 lap feature race.
So get excited Kingaroy, because the South Burnett Speedway is about to embark on a new and improved version of Speedway and come 9th March we should rock your socks off with a hugely exciting and action packed night racing at the first ever Triple Feature Night.
Mother Nature wins Hams Crane Hire Kings Royal
Posted 25th January, 2013.
It’s with extreme sadness and disappointment that the South Burnett Speedway club is faced with no other option but to cancel the Hams Crane Hire Modified Production Kings Royal.
Obviously, the weather is terrible and with the forecast of plenty more rain to come, the club has decided to make an early call to cancel the event so everyone can stay home or return home and batten down the hatches for the wild weather that is forecasted to hit the region over the coming days.
This was shaping up to be the biggest event the division and Kingaroy has ever seen and after 18 months of planning, the weather has beaten us and we sincerely feel terrible for everyone, but thankyou all for you support in the Hams Crane Hire Kings Royal. There will be no-reschedule of this event due to all the racing that is on in the coming months, so the official winner of the first ever Kings Royal will be rain.
Thanks again to everyone for your support and sorry we couldn’t get it done.

Onley Clinches Kingaroy
Posted 16th December, 2012.
NSSS Media Release
Lachlan Onley scored the narrowest win in
series history when he edged Wayne Randall and Michael Nicola to win
a wild round three of the 2012/2013 National Super Sedan Series at
Kingaroy Speedway last night (December 15). Onley pounced from a
late-race restart – the only interruption in the 35-lap event – to
squeeze past race-long leader Randall and a resurgent Nicola as they
swept three-wide under the chequer. Subsequent contact between the
trio sent Nicola hard into the wall, a disappointing end to what had
been an otherwise great race.
In the other events, Toowoomba's Dave Whell won
the Lightning Sprints feature race from Peter Campbell and Mark
Sinton. The Street Sedan feature was won by Tim Atkin who came
from rear position to win from Josh Arthur and Steve Thomsen and in
the Junior Sedan feature race Jayden Peacock won again from Brandon
Atto and Steve English.
National Series Double Header this Weekend
Posted 10th December, 2012.
NSSS Media Release
With the opening round of the 2012/2013 National Super Sedan Series proving a huge success, there is much anticipation for what lies ahead this weekend as teams face another two nights of competition at two vastly different venues. On Friday night (December 14), Gympie’s Mothar Mountain Speedway will serve as he battleground for round two before Kingaroy Speedway hosts their first ever NSSS fixture on Saturday evening (December 15).
If the level of competition and the quality of racing at Toowoomba is any indication of what is to come, this weekend is shaping as something very special with teams also needing to master the challenge of racing at two different tracks on consecutive nights.
Matt Pascoe, the 2009/2010 series champion, currently leads the title chase following his impressive win in Toowoomba and, with a proven record of success at both Gympie and Kingaroy, he will be confident of consolidating his advantage. However, as has been proven time again in this championship, predicting a winner is fraught with danger due to as the sheer depth of talent amongst the contracted and non-contracted drivers alike. This year, the contracted driver roster is the strongest ever with competitors from every state, including all previous series champions, amongst the line-up.
Western Australia’s Kodee Brown was strong in Toowoomba in finishing third and two-time series champion Darren Kane was also very solid with a fifth-place finish, however it may be Mark Pagel who proves the man to beat in Gympie. In his first year as a contracted driver, Pagel finished a fine fourth in Toowoomba and the unassuming Gympie resident knows the unique Mothar Mountain track more intimately than anybody else in the field and will not be hampered by the weight of expectation that he will carry into the event.
Of course, NSW’s Lachlan Onley won the Gympie event last season and will be a strong contender again if he can solve the mystery of the engine misfire that hampered his Toowoomba campaign. Meanwhile, two drivers who also drive the Gympie track particularly well and are desperate for points are Wayne Randall and Steve Jordan. Both drivers endured frustrations at Toowoomba that impacted severely on their points accumulation and they need to bounce back strongly this weekend.
Throw in the likes of defending NSSS champion Brad Smith and fellow Tasmanian Steve Latham; Victoria’s three-time national champion Michael Nicola and five-time state titleholder in Lucas Roberts; a South Australian triumvirate comprising Dave Gartner, Bill Miller and Luke Dodding, along with Tony Barklimore from New South Wales and a Queensland contingent that also comprises Michael Doblo, Jason Campbell and Townsville’s Trent Wilson and picking a likely winner for either event is mission impossible.
Of course, the performances of Steve Pearce and Wayne Brims at Toowoomba demonstrated quite emphatically that a non-contracted driver is more than capable of upstaging the series regulars. Pearce led for more the half the distance in the opening round feature race and, with experience at both Gympie and Kingaroy, he will be looking for a repeat performance to consolidate his position in the chase for the QSCA Queensland Cup.
Whilst a couple of drivers will be competing at Gympie for the first time, all of the interstate competitors will be making their first ever appearance at Kingaroy and it remains to be seen whether this provides any distinct advantage to the Queensland contingent. In fact, the Kingaroy showdown is really shaping as a critical chapter in the championship chase as it will be the final event before the competition breaks for Christmas. Certainly, the wide open spaces of the circular Kingaroy showground track are a far cry from the twisty, undulating nature of the Gympie layout, so it will be those competitors who can best adapt to these variances that will ultimately find themselves at the forefront of the championship.
The management teams and staff at both venues have been working overtime to prepare for these events and the race teams will spend this week in preparation for the challenge that awaits them. The weekend festivities will actually get underway in Kingaroy on Thursday night with a NSSS/Kingaroy Speedway display at the annual Christmas Carnival. In addition to the traditional celebrations and carnival activities, there will be official series merchandise for sale and, hopefully, some NSSS stars and cars on display to whet the appetite for local race fans.

Super Sedans Set for Kingaroy Showdown
Posted 29th October, 2012.
SSA Media Release
Defending champion Matt Pascoe joins the field for the first time this season when Roma Windscreens present round three of the Think Money Super Sedan Championship Series at Kingaroy Speedway on Saturday night (November 3). Pascoe will take on more than 20 Super Sedan exponents from throughout Queensland and interstate around the wide open spaces of the of the Kingaroy showground circuit.
Current series point leader Steve Jordan will be looking to replicate his dominant performance from Toowoomba last Saturday night, while opening round winner Darren Kane will be looking to reassert his authority after an equally impressive performance in Rockhampton earlier this month. Both drivers are former national champions and have earned their status as co-favourites for the Kingaroy showdown.
However, there are challengers aplenty within the field, with the New South Wales-based duo of Wayne Brims and Ian Brims at the forefront of this challenge. Wayne has won the Queensland, New South Wales and Victorian championships, was impressive in Toowoomba with a runner-up result and is rarely outside the top five in any event. Meanwhile, Ian finished second in this series last season, has been one of the most consistent drivers in the championship for several seasons and is a quiet achiever who should never be discounted as a genuine threat.
Toowoomba’s Sean Black has enjoyed a terrific start to the season and, with fourth-place finishes in the opening two rounds, a podium finish can’t be too far away. Rockhampton’s Craig Torr has also been very strong in both events thus far, clinching third behind Jordan and Brims last weekend.
Meanwhile, the only Kingaroy-based competitor in the field will be David Musch. With a new car at his disposal this season, Musch has been in good form with top ten finishes in both rounds and he cannot be discounted with strong home crowd support. Other contenders include Jason Campbell, Steve Pearce, Des Korn, Dale Christensen, Kyall Fisher, Barry Craft, Paul Geary, Greg Maher and David O’Keeffe
The night will also feature round three of the Sweet Chassis Development Series as Bundaberg young gun Josh McLaren and defending champ Gordon Shaw continue their battle for supremacy. Joining them in combat this weekend will be Rodney Craft, Colin Moss and rookie Glenn Willmott.
Each driver will contest two qualifying heats in an effort to secure a place in the semi-finals, the results from which will determine the starting order for the Roma Windscreens-sponsored feature race, to be staged over 30 laps.
With a huge support program comprising round two of the Wild Desert Modified Sedan Series, Production Sedans and Wingless Sprints, this is going to be a spectacular night of racing under lights in downtown Kingaroy which will also included the crazy rolly polly stunt cars.
The Super Sedan Association is proudly supported by:
Think Money, Sweet Chassis, Hotondo Homes (Rockhampton), Ian Boettcher Race Parts, B&J Car Sales, Old Man’s Garage, Roma Windscreens, J&J Bullbars, Think Investment Realty, Willmott’s Haulage, East Coast Traffic Control, Frater Asbestos & Demolition, Brims Earthmoving, Crisp Panel & Paint, Shock Doctor, Nissan Finance

Night One was excellent and all systems are go for Night Two
Posted 30th September, 2012.Although only 500 people braved the windy and then damp conditions, there support and dedication was rewarded with a great night of racing on night one of the Queensland Street Sedan Title.
The racing from the outset was intense and even after half an hour of light rain midway through the program, the track crew worked some magic and was able to get all of the first night's program completed.
After night one, Maryborough's Brody Thomsen sits top of the points in the Queensland Street Sedan Title and is certainly looking like the man to beat with a fantastic performance.
In the Formula 500 feature race, Bundaberg's Mick Pronger raced home to win the 15 lap final from Sunshine Coast's Ken Newton and Brisbane's Murray Gibson. Dan Scougall rode out a massive crash while running third in the feature race, which saw him invert the Q49 into a series of wild flips and rolls. Fortunately Dan walked away unhurt from the crash, but his car looked a little second hand after the crash.
Tonight's racing is all systems go at the scheduled time of 4pm. A big field of 30 Modified Productions are added to the program that also includes the final rounds of heats for the Street Sedan Queensland Title, the 4 Cylinder Sedan Gold Cup and the Junior Sedan South Burnett Shootout.
It is going to be an epic night of action at the Kingaroy Speedway, so make sure you get to the track and don't miss a minute of the action.

The practice will be an official open practice night, so any licensed and insured driver can hit the track and a QAS Ambulance will once again be in attendance.
As stated above the practice will commence at 7pm, to allow people to not have to take the day off work to come and attend practice on the Friday Night.

Double Header Confirmed for Queensland
One of the fundamental elements to the success of the National Super Sedan Series has been the willingness of host tracks to step outside their traditional Saturday night scheduling and work collaboratively with other venues in the interests of minimising the burden of travel for participating competitors. Therefore, series organisers are very pleased to announce that Mothar Mountain Speedway and Kingaroy Speedway will host rounds two and three of the 2012/2013 National Super Sedan Series on December 14 and 15 respectively.
The two events will be staged on the weekend immediately following the opening round of competition at Toowoomba’s Charlton Raceway, continuing the traditional three-round tournament that will again comprise the QSCA Queensland Cup. The earlier start to the championship is expected to prove popular with competitors and a bumper field seems certain to descend on Queensland for four fabulous nights of racing.
The willingness of the Gympie Saloon Car Club to stage a Friday night fixture and thereby enable Kingaroy to host a series round for the first time on Saturday evening is a magnanimous gesture that ensures maximum return for competitors taking part in the opening week of competition. Last season, Gympie staged a Thursday night fixture on December 29 and were rewarded with a packed house, and are no doubt hoping that a Friday night staging this season will lure even more people to the unique hillside circuit. Gympie Saloon Car Club President Allan Jennings is excited about the event, stating that “last year the NSSS event attracted our biggest crowd of the season, so a Friday night round this year will hopefully bring even more people to watch Australia’s best drivers in action”.
The South Burnett Speedway Club, promoters of Kingaroy Speedway, is delighted at the opportunity to stage an event of this stature given the rocky road the club has traversed in recent seasons. According to club President Ashley Barron, “to be associated with the National Series is great for Kingaroy. The feedback from the drivers who visited the circuit last year has been positive and we can’t wait”. “To come back from the brink only two years ago to be running a round of the National Series, we are over the moon. We are getting more support from spectators and local businesses, so to get cars from all over Australia is great for Kingaroy”, he added.
In joining the series, Kingaroy Speedway becomes the 21st different venue to host a NSSS series round since the championship began in 2006 and NSSS Manager Tony Parkinson is very pleased with the level of support from Queensland once again. “Working with Gympie and Kingaroy has been a pleasure and we are excited to have Kingaroy join the series. We strive to minimise the travelling costs for the teams throughout the series. To have Gympie and Kingaroy working together will provide joint promotion benefits and the teams benefit because they will now be travelling to Queensland for four nights of racing over two weekends. Of course, we also welcome the continued support of the QSCA with the Queensland Cup.”
The opening round of the 2012/2013 National Super Sedan Series will be a two-night event at Toowoomba’s Charlton Raceway on December 7 and 8. The remainder of the 2012/2013 championship schedule is close to finalisation and further dates will be released as soon as they are confirmed, so stay tuned to www.nationalsupersedanseries.com for more information. The 2012/2013 National Super Sedan Series is proudly supported by the following sponsors:
Speedway Australia, Speedway Sedans Australia, American Racer, Oval Express, Super Charge Batteries, Shock Doctor, JD Couriers, Bob Jane T-Marts (Modbury), Hoosier Tires

We look forward to seeing a huge turnout for what will be a wonderful night at the 2012 Kingaroy Speedway Gala Trophy Dinner.
Show Meeting - simply sensational
Posted 7th May, 2012
Phrases like "Meeting of the year", "best Speedway ever", don't get thrown around very often, but last night thousands and thousands of people turned out to watch annual Show Meeting at the Kingaroy Showgrounds which was a huge hit.
Modified Productions headlined the show and put on some nail biting racing which ended up seeing Kingaroy's David Barbeler getting the epic 25 lap feature race. Barbeler worked his way through the field to get past Toowoomba's Peter Gary on the final corner to win an thrilling feature race in front of his home crowd. Hervey Bay's Steven Zahl finished third. It has been some time since David Barbeler stood on the top spot of the podium, but he certainly showed the big local crowd that there is still plenty of life in the those legs yet. The feature race had everything from great side by side racing along with plenty of drama and some big rollovers. Kingaroy's Stephen "Chook" Gertiz rode out a massive rollover mid way through the final while running 5th. Geritz walked away unhurt from the crash but the SB10 EL Falcon was junked in the accident. And then only a few laps later Dalby's Mick Shelford rode out a big crash in turn 3 which saw him land on Jessica Raymont's AU Falcon. Both drivers where once again un-injuried in the crash.
But the story of the night and the final, was the dominating performance of Gympie's Aidan Raymont who won all three heat races and took up the Toowoomba Steering and Suspension back of the bus Challenge which meant he started from the rear of the final. Raymont started from position 20 in the feature and passed every single car around the outside to get to the lead within 15 laps. While leading Raymont suffered a broken shock causing him to retire from the race.
Kingaroy's Ben Stead had a perfect night in the Street Sedans by winning all three heat races along with the 20 lap feature race. This has capped off an amazing season for the youngster who has been extremely fast in the little Honda.
In the other events Ken Crompton took out the Wingless feature, Carter Armstrong won the Junior Sedan feature (that also saw a first lap rollover for Jayden Peacock - who was un-injuried in the massive crash) and although the Q52 Lancer of Al Mathers crossed the line first in the 4 Cylinder feature race, it was later discovered that Al substituted Ian Jones into the car, so the officials later disqualified the car from the event, meaning second place Joel Thomas (on debut) ended up with the win.
So after a fantastic season, the South Burnett Speedway club now has a well earned break until racing returns in the new season for the Queensland Street Sedan Title on 29th & 30th September.
From everyone at the club, we would like to sincerely thank all the drivers, volunteer officials and the massive crowds who have supported the race track during the season, as because of your support, the Kingaroy Speedway keeps going from strength to strength and looks forward to returning bigger and better in 2012/13.

Posted 15th April, 2012
After winning the New South Wales Title in Lismore only one week ago, Kevin Britten has raced home to win the 2012 Queensland Title for the Dirt Modifieds last night at Kingaroy Speedway.

Paul Booker finished third just ahead of Victorian Daniel Scott and Queenslander Kelvin Hamilton.

Pascoe wins a thriller
Posted 5th March, 2012
Brisbane Mat Pascoe has raced home to win Saturday nights thrilling round of the Hotondo Homes Super Sedan Championship Series in front of 1500 at Kingaroy Speedway. After starting from pole position during the feature race, Mat raced out to an early lead, but was gunned down by Steve Pearce who entered into a sensational battle in lap traffic. Pascoe and Pearce battled for position right across the track that provided multiple lines of racing on the very much improved new racing surface. Pascoe eventually got back into the lead and held off a late charge from newly crowned Tasmanian Champion Wayne Randall who finished second ahead of Wayne Brims. Kingaroy's David Musch finished 7th.
In the Modified Productions, the dominance of Gympie's Aidan Raymont continued after another great performance to win Round 5 of the Quantum Racing Industries South West Allstars Series. Raymont once again qualified from the front row of the grid, but fellow Gympie flyer Brett Baxter got out to an early lead, but was eventually overtaken by the flying Raymont. Gavin Fletcher finished third. Kingaroy's Stephen "Chook" Geritz was the best of the locals finishing 8th among the 40 strong car field that was on hand on Saturday Night.
Toowoomba's Tim Smith capped off a great season for the youngest who raced home to win the Junior Sedan Queensland Title. This season Smith finished third in the Australian Title, won the Northern Territory Title and has now captured his first Queensland Championship.

"Saturday Night is Speedway Night"
Practice has been cancelled due to heavy rain
Posted 23rd February, 2012
After heavy rain and storms have lashed the area over the past couple of days, the South Burnett Speedway club have been left with no other option but to cancell this Saturday Night's Practice. Over 120mm (nearly 5 inches) of rain has fallen in Kingaroy during the past two days and by the looks of the forecast the region can expect plenty more heavy rain and storms in the coming days including this weekend.
Although this is a huge dissappointment for the club, it now turns it attention to the next race meeting being held on Saturday 3rd March, featuring the next round of the Super Sedan Hotondo Homes (Rockhampton) Championship Series, Round 5 of the Quantum Racing Industries Modified Production South West Allstars Series and the Junior Sedan Queensland Title. Just a reminder that nominations for Super Sedans and Modified Productions close this Sunday.

Practice Added to Schedule
Posted 23rd January, 2012
The South Burnett Speedway has added a special Practice Night on Saturday 25th February to the schedule, which is one week before the next race meeting which will see V8 Super Sedans (Hotondo Homes Championship Series), Modified Productions (Quantum Racing Industries South West Allstars Series) and the Junior Sedan Queensland Title.
The organising committee of the South Burnett Speedway have already started replacing the entire track surface and are hopefully the new and improved surface will be a huge improvement and would like to give the surface a shake down before the next race meeting, hence the practice night. The new surface will be laid on a new base and the clay will be mixed with some good quality deco, which provide a great new racing surface for every single division.
The Practice Night will commence at 5pm and will only cost $20 per car to attend and admission will be free. Queensland Ambulance Service will be in attendance as well as a full rescue and crash crew.
The South Burnett Speedway club are determined and committed to get this racing surface right so all the big dollar shows and state & national titles that they have organised, go ahead as planned on a fantastic racing surface at a new and improved venue.
