Sprintcars roar back to Redline Raceway in a two-night meet on Saturday and Sunday.

They will provide the support card with V8 Thunders to the street stocks’ “King of the Mount” on the opening night.

New Victorian sprintcar champion Mark Laity will arrive at the Buninyong circuit as the form driver after claiming the state title at Nyora in South Gippsland.

Adam Greenwood, who chased Laity home, is expected to be the hardest to beat along with Wayne Nicholls, Dennis Jones and Shane Steenholdt.

The “King of the Mount” will be raced over the two nights, with defending titleholder and Australian champion Anthony Beare the one to chase down in a 50-plus strong field which also includes past national champions Brad McClure and Mark Jennings. Jacob Mills, Darren Giacometti and Mick Clark will be other hard chargers.

Late model sedans will run alongside the street stocks on Sunday’s card.

Racing is at 5pm each day.
