V8 cars take over Kingaroy

SPEEDWAY: The Kingaroy Speedway will roar into life on Saturday night when more than 100 sedans run amok around its track.

Speedway secretary Tanya Barron said they had a large program planned.

"It is the last round of our golden helmet modified sedan series,” Barron said.

"We've got 40 cars nominated for that.

"And we've got our highest placed local at the moment, who is Brett Barron, in it.”

She said the night would also host round 10 of the V8 super sedan series.

"We've got 16 nominated with two locals in there,” she said.

"They'll be hoping to have a good run. We have the junior sedans, we've got 26 nominated, part of the All Star series.

"Then we round that off with just our production sedan where we have 13 nominated.”

Barron said it was the speedway's second last meet for the season.

"Our last one will be the Kingaroy show,” she said.

"So everyone wants to get in and have run. It should be a really good meeting as we haven't had one since January.

"We're looking forward to having another top night.”

Barron said she was expecting a large crowd trackside.

"Usually the modified sedans bring a big crowd, they put on some rally good racing,” she said.

Races begin at 5pm.
