TOP TEN STILL IN THE HUNT IN QLD USC
With just 86 points separating the Top Ten in series points, the Queensland Ultimate Sprintcar Championship is wide open for upset this Friday as the green flag drops on the series Grand Final under a perfect weather forecast.
Gold Coast racers hold the top three spots after Robbie Farr surged to the series lead with his win on March 25, consequently opening up a six-point lead over fellow Coaster, Luke Oldfield, with a further 38 points back to Danny Reidy.
The following three combatants are in a tight contest, with Andrew Scheuerle on 538 points just four marks ahead of McHugh and Woods joined at the hip on 534, but after Woods’ shock withdrawal from this weekend’s racing, the chances of making the top five have increased significantly for Kevin Titman who sits in 7th on 526 points.
And, after a work accident forced the withdrawal of Titan Racing’s Mitchell Gee, Brisbane’s Brent Kratzmann and Withcott’s own Peter Lack are well and truly in with a chance of the top 5.
Events Manager Bennie Bishop was eagerly anticipating the event, especially with the forecast of perfect weather.
“This will be a cracker of an event. Perfect weather, 40 cars, and three races in one, when you consider that these guys will be racing to win the event, the USC Grand Final and also the first round of the ClayPerView Easter Triple Challenge that goes to Brisbane and Lismore on the following nights.”
Tickets are available from the gate from 3pm or right now at SpeedwayTickets.com.au, with racing starting at 4:45pm and Sprintcars from sundown. For more details check out toowoombaspeedway.com or the Hi-Tec Oils Speedway Facebook page.
