  • Monday   April 21, 2014 Kicking Up The Dirt - 2014 Tri-City Shootout Night Three

    The third and final night of the 2014 East Coast Logistics Tri-City Sprintcar Shootout at Toowoomba Speedbowl last night was every bit as thrilling as the first two nights competition. Difficult track conditions all night proved troublesome for almost everyone and certainly impacted on proceedings, with even some of Australia's best Sprintcar competitors struggling to get a grip on the slippery surface. David Murcott started things off all wrong, clipping the wall in qualifying and flipping down the back straight. James McFadden had a scary moment in turn one while leading the A-Main event, which cost him the lead of the race, while several others came to grief over the course of the evening. Robbie Farr and James McFadden put on a truly brilliant show for most of the A-Main event, the pair clearly a class above the rest of field. Farr ended up pulling out of the event with sudden and unexpected mechanical problems, leaving McFadden in control of the race. McFadden was never challenged again for the lead and opened a sizeable lead on every restart, skillfully navigating lapped traffic before going on to take the win. James not only won last nights A-Main, but also managed to secure the overall East Coast Logistics Tri-City Shootout Series win and the Crispy Memorial. Joining him on the podium, both for last nights race and the overall weekend series, were Garry Brazier and Luke Oldfield, both of whom put in sensational drives to entertain the crowd. Danny Reidy and Peter Lack rounded out the top five finishers in last nights action-packed A-Main event, which was enough to see them finished fourth and sixth overall for the weekend, Andrew Scheuerle, while failing to finish last nights A-Main event, had earned enough points in all his qualifying efforts to secure fifth overall for the weekend.
  • Sunday   April 20, 2014 Kicking Up The Dirt - 2014 Tri-City Shootout Night Two

    Night Two of the East Coast Logistics Tri-City Shootout at SuperCheap Auto Archerfield Speedway last night was a show not to be missed. The action was relentless and with four current or past Australian Sprintcar Champions in the mix with all the local stars, many on a mission to regain ground lost after a somewhat disappointing run in Maryborough on Friday night, it was every man for himself the moment the first light turned green. James McFadden dominated the finals, earning pole position in the A-Main after transferring from the Bronze Shootout and winning the Gold. McFadden was in truly magnificent form for the A-Main, leading every lap almost effortlessly, and managed to lap over half the field when the middle part of the A-Main ran 26 laps without a stop. While Brazier stayed close to McFadden for much of the race, there was little he could do to reel him in. Brazier and Andrew Scheuerle had a great race for the minor places with David Murcott, Robbie Farr and Danny Reidy all putting on a breath-taking show while arguing over the minor places. James McFadden took the win, cementing his place atop the points ladder for the weekend’s racing, with Garry Brazier in second last night ahead of Andrew Scheuerle and David Murcott, with Danny Reidy rounding out the top five after both Murcott and Reidy got by Robbie Farr with only two laps left to run.
  • Saturday   April 19, 2014 Kicking Up The Dirt - 2014 Tri-City Shootout - Night One

    The first night of the 2014 Easter Tri-City Shootout kicked off last night with twenty-nine Sprintcars heading to Maryborough Speedway for the opening night of competition. It was a star-studded field with current Australian Champion David Murcott and former Australian Champions James McFadden, Robbie Farr and Garry Brazier headlining the event, with a host on Brisbane, North Queensland, and Interstate stars joining them on track – there was even a New Zealand competitor in the ranks. David Murcott dominated all night, thrilling the large crowd in attendance, setting the quickest qualifying time (11.419), and then earning pole position for the A-Main. Murcott elected to start on the outside for the start of the 35-lap event but an incident with fellow front-row starter Robbie Farr as they crossed the line brought out a very premature end to what was otherwise a faultless night for the Australian Champion. Kevin Titman inherited a front row start for the restart and while the opening few laps of the event were marred by several incidents, seeing both Andrew Scheuerle and Robbie Farr exit the race in separate, spectacular incidents, Titman was not going to be denied his chance at victory. Jordyn Brazier challenged early in the race, while the final stages of the race saw both Luke Oldfield and James McFadden closing in fast, but Titman was truly magnificent out in front. He had experienced engine dramas in the #59 racer during the night, the crew even working on it during the open red light stoppage when Scheuerle exited the race, but Titman drove a strong, skilful and mistake-free race to secure his maiden Sprintcar A-Main win in emphatic style. James McFadden finished second with Luke Oldfield officially third after initially starting fourteenth. Brent Aprile and Danny Reidy rounded out the top five.
  • Sunday   April 6, 2014 Kicking Up The Dirt - KRE Sprintcar Series Round 13

    It may not have been a full moon at SuperCheap Auto Archerfield Speedway for Round 13 of the KRE Sprintcar Series last night, but there was plenty of crazy, frantic and breath-taking racing action to keep the large crowd entertained. Twenty-nine cars turned up for the show with the Brisbane regular stars joined by Victorian Jamie Veal, North-Queensland based racer Brent Aprile, former Australian Champion James McFadden and Current Australian Champion David Murcott. Murcott and Aprile were two of the strongest performers of the night, leading from the first fall of the green flag in qualifying to sharing the front row for the start of the A-Main. Aprile was leading the main event, with Murcott not holding anything back as he searched for a way past. Disaster struck though when, with only 12 laps to run, both leaders were caught up in the chaos when a lapped car rolled, with neither able to restart the event. Jamie Veal inherited the race lead and led comfortably while James McFadden started his charge towards the front, only to spin in turn four with ten laps to run. Jamie Veal took a hard fought and well deserved win, with Luke Oldfield and Bryan Mann, both of whom had had exceptional runs in the A-Main event, in second and third respectively, while Andrew Scheuerle and Peter Lack completed the top five.
  • Sunday   March 30, 2014 Kicking Up The Dirt - KRE Sprintcar Series - Round 12

    Last night at Supercheap Auto Archerfield Speedway, Round 12 of the KRE Sprintcar Series hit a rather wet, rough and hooky track, with 20 cars set to do battle. It may have been the smallest field of Sprintcars seen at the Brisbane venue for a number of years, but it was strong star-studded field and the competition all night was some of the fiercest of the season. Bryan Mann started the night with a strong, fast car, and set quickest time in qualifying, while Andrew Scheuerle had a couple of solid heat runs and led the points chase entering the Dash. The pre-Dash draw saw Scheuerle invert the top six qualifiers for the event and from the rear of the six-car dash field, Scheuerle found it difficult to move forward. Ben Hilder and Mark Pholi shared the front row for the start of the Dash and while Hilder completely dominated the Dash, it was Pholi who took charge in the A-Main. Pholi had a truly magnificent run in the Darra Mechanical #14 racer and lead the opening laps of the A-Main event. Victorian Jamie Veal stole the lead and looked to have the race well under control until lapped traffic came into play and a moments hesitation from Veal was all the invitation Pholi needed to slip straight back into the race lead. Mark Pholi, who has previously only won a Winter Series round, went on to take his first open competition win, with Jamie Veal and Luke Oldfield rounding out the podium. Andrew Scheuerle and Bryan Mann completed the top five.
  • Sunday   March 16, 2014 Kicking Up The Dirt - KRE Sprintcar Series Round 11

    Round 11 of the KRE Sprintcar Series put on a spectacular for race fans at SuperCheap Auto Archerfield Speedway last night with a strong field of 26 Sprintcars hitting the track. When Danny Reidy drew the double points marble at drivers briefing an additional element was added to the nights competition, and with double points on the line, and the championship drawing closer to the end, there was going to be no holding back. While the early part of the night saw several drivers qualifying further back in the field than they usually do, and Danny Reidy, Darren Jensen and Robbie Farr each with their own separate problems in the opening round of heats, it was a fierce feature race battle. Jamie Bricknell, having his second drive in the Titan Garages #36 racer, lead the first half of the feature event, before Brisbane local Kevin Titman took over at half race distance and looked almost certain to take his maiden feature race win. Unfortunately for Titman a spin in turn four in the closing stages of the race handed the lead to Scheuerle and while Luke Oldfield had a brilliant run and pushed Scheuerle all the way to the line, it would seem there is no stopping Andrew Scheuerle at the moment. Scheuerle took the win, bagging some very valuable points in the process with Luke Oldfield, who is one of Scheuerle's nearest competition in the points battle, across the line in second, with Jamie Bricknell rounding out the podium. Robbie Farr and Paul Rooks completed the top five.
  • Friday   March 14, 2014 MARYBOROUGH - DASH FOR CASH

    Sprintcars Queensland travelled to Maryborough Speedway last Saturday night to put on our annual Dash-for-Cash, and while the car count was a bit down the feature race gave race fans some thrilling action.
  • Sunday   March 2, 2014 Kicking Up The Dirt - KRE Sprintcar Series Round 10

    If you were not at SuperCheap Auto Archerfield Speedway last night you missed one of the best nights of racing seen in South East Queensland for a number of years. It was Round 10 of the KRE Sprintcar Series and we had current Australian Champion David Murcott, former Australian Champion James McFadden, and American young gun Cap Henry join Sprintcars Queensland front-runners Andrew Scheuerle, Danny Reidy, Luke Oldfield, Bryan Mann, Kevin Titman, Darren Jensen and a strong field of local competitors. Murcott and McFadden led the leader board for most of the night but it was Danny Reidy who took the win in a hard-fought Dash event. Only a very brave man accepts the Kratzmanns Challenge and inverts the top fourteen starters for the A-Main event, knowing the calibre of drivers who would then be starting in front of him. But Danny Reidy is a brave man and in a bold move accepted the Kratzmann Challenge, after negotiating an additional $3000 bonus prize money, making it $5500 on offer, from Archerfield Promoter John Kelly. Reidy added five laps to the duration of the race, with he and James McFadden to start from the seventh row. It took only five laps for Reidy to move into third, another ten laps and he was up to second, while McFadden gradually made his way to the front. It came down to the last few laps of the race, but in the end it was James McFadden who took the win, with Danny Reidy a very impressive second and Darren Jensen, who had led for much of the race, in third. David Murcott and Andrew Scheuerle rounded out the top five.
  • Saturday   February 15, 2014 Kicking Up The Dirt - KRE Sprintcar Series Round 9

    After a few weeks off Sprintcar racing in South East Queensland, in which several of the Sprintcars Queensland teams headed south to contest events like the Australian Sprintcar Title and the Grand Annual Sprintcar Classic, it was back to SuperCheap Auto Archerfield Speedway last night for round nine of the KRE Sprintcar Series. Twenty-four cars turned up to compete in the event, with the night to culminate in a twin 20-lap features and an overall round winner to be crowned after points from both features were amalgamated. Andrew Scheuerle went into last nights competition comfortably leading the points battle while his nearest rival, David Muir, was absent from last nights racing. Luke Oldfield, Kevin Titman, Darren Jensen and Danny Reidy were next in line and keen to try to close the gap to Scheuerle. While Reidy and Oldfield were able to secure a win each in the feature events, Scheuerle finished third in the first A-Main and second in the final feature event. Once again Scheuerle's consistency paid dividends and once the points were tallied, this consistency was enough to secure the overall win for the round, Kevin Titman and Danny Reidy rounding out the final podium. Luke Oldfield and Peter Lack completed the top five.
  • Sunday   January 12, 2014 Kicking Up The Dirt - Australian Sprintcar Open Finale

    Last night at SuperCheap Auto Archerfield Speedway Donny Schatz put on a mesmerising show for the large crowd in attendance, proving again just why he is regarded as the best in the world. In his hardest fought win of this Australian visit, Schatz worked hard throughout the 50-lap A-Main event, stealing the lead from David Murcott just before the half way mark. A few laps later Murcott stole the lead back as they navigated lapped traffic down the main straight. Schatz was able to regain the lead but spent the last part of the race with a very hard charging Steven Lines challenging him for the position. Both Murcott and Lines, two of Australia's best, ran a magnificent race, with Lines officially second behind Schatz at the final fall of the chequered flag. American Brad Sweet crossed the line a very impressive third in only his second night on the SuperCheap Auto Archerfield Speedway track, with James McFadden and Brooke Tatnell completing the top five. Andrew Scheuerle was best of the Brisbane regulars, crossing the line in twelfth and leading locals David Muir, Luke Oldfield and Bryan Mann across the line.
  • Saturday   January 11, 2014 Kicking Up The Dirt - Australian Sprintcar Open and WSS

    Last night thirty-six Sprintcars rolled into SuperCheap Auto Archerfield Speedway ready for the first night of competition in a big weekend of racing. World Series Sprintcars Round Seven and the Australian Sprintcar Open is a monster two night racing event, culminating in a massive 50-lap A-Main event tonight, paying $20,000 to win. Last nights program saw the all-important qualifying session, two rounds of heats and a preliminary feature event, but there was no denying that Donny Schatz was going to be the man to beat once again. Schatz again dominated last night, wowing the crowd with his faultless and seemingly effortless racing style to top the qualifying order, lead the points ladder heading into the preliminary feature event and then taking the win in the Preliminary A-Main. James McFadden and a very impressive Daniel Pestka joined him on the podium. The preliminary feature was an exciting 20-lap affair, and it was David Murcott who crossed the line in fourth while Brisbane local David Muir impressed with a strong fifth place finish.
  • Sunday   January 5, 2014 Kicking Up The Dirt - With World Series Sprintcars Round 6

    Last night 31 Sprintcars rolled into SuperCheap Auto Archerfield Speedway where some of Queensland's finest would take on a group of Australia's best and some talent from America. Donny Schatz wowed fans and racers alike as he dominated proceedings most of the night, while Bryan Mann, Andrew Scheuerle, Luke Oldfield, Peter Lack, David Muir, Danny Reidy and Terry Bracken were standout local performers, each qualifying for the 20-car strong A-Main event. Donny Schatz won the event, with Luke Dillion and James McFadden joining him on the podium. Of the locally-based regular Sprintcars Queensland competitors Andrew Scheuerle had an amazing run to finish a very impressive fourth, with Bryan Mann across the line in fifth after a very solid night.
  • Thursday   January 2, 2014 Kicking Up The Dirt - KRE Sprintcar Series Round 8

    The third night of International Sprintcars and the eighth round of the KRE Sprintcar Series unfolded last night at SuperCheap Auto Archerfield Speedway with twenty-seven cars ready to put on a memorable show to celebrate the start of 2014. Americans Donny Schatz and Jason Sides joined a strong field of locals with them both once again dominating for most of the night. Sides won the Dash event and this time agreed to accept the Kratzmann Challenge once the bonus prize money was again raised to $4000. Unfortunately for both Sides and Schatz, who would now start the A-Main event from the seventh row with the entire top fourteen starters inverted, things didn’t go quite as planned. Schatz ended up out of the race after being caught up in an incident on the second lap of the race, while Sides, also making contact in the incident, was left with a broken right rear shock for the rest of the race. Sides didn’t let that slow him down though and managed to claw his way into second, occasionally challenging for the lead. Kevin Titman and Terry Bracken both had a turn leading the race, but it was Bryan Mann who quietly made his way into the race lead, and went on to take the win. It was a very welcome change of fortunes for Mann who has endured a couple of awful nights of racing, and big days of rebuilding race cars, since Christmas. Jason Sides managed to climb his way into second and while he occasionally challenged Mann for the lead, having one last big look about three laps from home, he also found himself on the defensive. Luke Oldfield had another spectacular run in the NQ17 racer to join Mann and Sides on the podium while Andrew Scheuerle and Terry Bracken rounded out the top five.
