Round 2 of the Easter Sprintcar Trail is set to turn up the heat at Borderline Speedway for one last time this season on Saturday night.

With 40 nominations in the sprintcar class and names such as the Australia number 1 Jamie Veal, Eureka garages and sheds champion Daniel Pestka, hometown lead foots Glen Sutherland and Scott Enderl along with Ryan Jones, Grant Anderson and Marcus Dumensy who lead a stout field of quality drivers.

All nominated drivers will travel along the highway from night one at Avalon speedway Geelong and take on night two at the “Bullring” to gain valuable points and then venture to Warrnambool’s Premier speedway for the final night of the trial on Sunday.

Drivers will also be battling for the A-main cash prize that will be paying $5000 for each feature winner through the three nights so it’s a great incentive.

With the weather forecast looking good, the Borderline Speedway committee and track staff will be hoping this one gets in the books after a rain out earlier in the season with the 360 sprintcar all-star round.

Action will be tightly contest in the sprintcars with Veal, Pestka, Sutherland, Enderl, Murcott and Darren Mollenoyux in contention who all like racing at Borderline.

The winner of last year’s trail Jock Goodyer will not be returning to defend his crown after dominating 12 months ago.

The “Devil Racer” could not be removed from the top two across the three races, but has not nominated this year which opens the door to his rivals to hop in.

However, the man who won the corresponding race at Borderline, Mollenoyux, is back and will be hungry for more success.

One area of concern for Mollenoyux is a lack of track time thoughout the season, but shook the rust off in his recent return.

The things with wings will put on a race for the fans Saturday night so make sure you cheer loud and support your favorite driver.

In support for the night and making a return to Borderline will be the Late Models.

The drivers will also provide some great racing and will adapt to the “Bullring” quite well with some skilled driving and have 11 cars nominated.

V8 super rods will also be on the program and if race fans have not seen these race before they run the opposite way to the sprintcars and the late models.

Super rods are a great class to watch and will excite the race fan on the hill with some wheel lifting and exciting racing.

Spectator gates will open at 4pm and racing action will kick off at 5.30pm, so if you are looking for some action this Saturday night, get your backside trackside and come out to Borderline Speedway.
