Sprintcars Return to Blue Ribbon Raceway
On Saturday night the unmistakable roar of 410 Cubic Inch V8 Engines will return to Blue Ribbon Raceway. It has been six years since the SRA Victorian Sprintcars raced at the Kalkee track, and club members are excited to see their return.

Drivers from across the nation representing six states have nominated for the event. All but one of the current top ten championship drivers will be racing for points for the Eureka Series on Saturday.

Blue Ribbon Raceway will host the penultimate round of the series, which has raced at many of the tracks around Victoria this season. Only 397 points separate the current to 5 drivers, but with a possible 430 points on offer, the championship is still wide open.

Many of the drivers have not raced at Blue Ribbon Raceway before, so it will also be a race of who can adapt to the track and find the best setup.

Sprintcar driver Brett Milburn of Mornington currently leads the series with Warrnambool drivers Tim Van Ginneken and Corey Mccullagh in 2nd and 3rd positions respectively.

Saturday night’s racing format will feature heat races that will decide the starting positions in the Main Feature race.

V8 Trucks will also race on Saturday night along with Street Stocks, and 3 Litre Sedans.

Gates at the speedway open at 4.30pm, with the action to start at 5.30pm.
Admission is $25 for adults, $20 for pensioners and $15 for students. Children under 12 get in for free.

In September 2017, it will be 100 years since the sons of Edwin and Polly were killed in the First World War, only 4 days apart.

To commemorate this event, on Sunday 24th of September 2017, a service will be held at the Dimboola Cemetery.
