This coming weekend sees the new era of the Australian Sprintcar Masters begin at Murray Machining & Sheds Murray Bridge Speedway. The event which was previously staged at Virginia for over 30 years, will take place over two nights of racing on Saturday March 9 & Sunday March 10.

Saturday March 9 will feature Night 1 of the Masters, with the 25-lap preliminary feature including the annual Ross Wright Memorial. The Masters Champion will then be decided on Sunday March 10 in 40 lap feature that will pay $15,000 to the winner.

Wingless Sprints will also be in action for their annual marathon event – the Wingless Sprints 60 Lapper on March 9, with a Street Stocks Invitational providing the support action on March 10.

Canteen, food truck and bar facilities are available on the night.
