An impressive list of 36 drivers has qualified for the various rounds of the 2016/2017 “USC Chase”.
The ‘class of 2017’ represent SA, QLD, VIC, NSW, NT, TAS and the USA. By finishing first, second or third in their respective State USC rounds in SA, VIC, QLD and NSW they have registered their eligibility for the Chase Series that kicks off in March.
Whilst organisers are not expecting the majority of the 36 to enter the Chase in it’s entirety (several of the qualifiers have gone back to the USA for example) the first round at Murray Machining & Sheds Speedway on March 11 for the Ross Wright Memorial will still be a spectacular affair.
“Regardless of whether anyone in the field of 36 so far compete in all the rounds of The Chase it’s still quite a feat just to qualify,” says USC spokesman Steven Green, “we still have several events to go where drivers can score points towards entry. It’s going to be exciting to see whoever else gets in.”
There are three remaining events of USC before The Chase between Murray Bridge and Parramatta and they include:
February 18 Valvoline Raceway NSW February 25 Murray Machining & Sheds Speedway SA March 4 Valvoline Raceway NSW
The Chase then commences and concludes on the following dates and venues:
March 11 Murray Machining & Sheds Speedway SA March 12 Premier Speedway Warrnambool VIC March 18 Valvoline Raceway NSW March 25 Hi-Tec Oils Speedway Toowoomba QLD April 1 Valvoline Raceway NSW April 8 Ultimate Sprintcar Championship Grand Final Valvoline Raceway NSW April 14 USC QLD Final Hi-Tec Oils Speedway Toowoomba QLD April 16 USC VIC Final Premier Speedway Warrnambool VIC
