Sprintcar action returns to the Murray Machining & Sheds, Murray Bridge Speedway for the annual Bill Wigzell "Battle of the Bridge". A class field of 19 cars will line-up for the Saturday, October 2nd event.
“We’re excited to see Sprintcars back at MMSS,” remarked Venue Administrator Darren Shaddock.
“It is fantastic to see our Sprintcar drivers back this early in the season and we thank them for their support."
Matt Egel will be one to watch after a very successful campaign in the NT, while the local challenge will include the likes of Ryan Jones, Brad Keller, Daniel Pestka and Steven Caruso.
Luke Dillon also returns as the final feature race winner at MMSS from the 2020/2021 Season, while speedway all-round Driver Ryan Alexander (pictured) steps into the Sprintcar ranks.
Brock Hallett, Paul Solomon and Troy Hose represent the interstate contingent.
Street Stocks will also run on the night, along with Junior Sedans and Classic Super Modifieds.
Wingless Sprints round out the program with a Rookie Development Session for 1st and 2nd year drivers.
“Wingless Sprints are an ever-growing category in South Australia,’ mentioned Shaddock.
"The Rookie Development session in conjunction with Wingless Sprints South Australia is designed to give new drivers more track time so they can gain more experience without the pressure of what can often be a 30-car field on any other race night,” he added.
360 Sprintcars were also due to run on the program, but are an unfortunate omission due to the number of nominations received.
Tickets for the event are on sale via www.speedwaytickets.com.au
