Victorian Chris Bellman successfully defended his “King of the Bridge” crown at the Murray Machining and Sheds Murray Bridge Speedway on Saturday night (December 9) as he led all 20 laps after starting from the pole position.

Monte Motorsports driver James McFadden dominated the field in the 30-lap final at the Murray Machining and Sheds Murray Bridge Speedway to claim his first South Australian Sprintcar Championship. After moving up from the bronze shootout to the pole position McFadden capitalised on his front row start to win the OTR / Hungry Jacks Murray Bridge supported finale ahead of Brad Keller and USC SA Series points leader Robbie Farr, who recorded his third successive podium result at the South Australian venue this season.
Steven Lines, Robbie Farr, Matt Egel, Luke Dillon, Brad Keller and Jamie Cobby all have one thing in common and that is they are all previous South Australian Sprintcar Champions and between them they have held the title for over a decade. This Saturday night at the Murray Machining and Sheds Murray Bridge Speedway any one of these six drivers will have the chance to etch their name into the record book once again but to do so they will need to defeat one of the strongest ever State Championship fields as a total of 38 drivers will make the trek to Murray Bridge for round 3 of the Ultimate Sprintcar Championship SA.
Former Allstars Series Champion Brenten Farrer bounced back to win round 3 of the Australian 360ci Sprintcar Allstars Series at the Murray Machining and Sheds Murray Bridge Speedway after destroying a race car at the previous round a week prior. After a long week building a new car Farrer repaid his team’s effort with an outstanding night that included setting the quickest time in qualifying, a heat win and victory in the pole shuffle prior to emerging the winner in a fantastic 30 lap finale.
For the first time this season the 360ci Sprintcars will grace the clay of the Murray Machining and Sheds Murray Bridge Speedway this Saturday night (November 25) with round 3 of the Allstar Sprintcar Series. This weekend will see the first of 3 South Australian rounds of the predominately Victorian based series with over 20 nominations with close to half of the competitors coming from across the border.
