This Thursday Night it’s the Annual Kings Sprintcar Challenge and it boasts some of Americas best sprintcar talent on the planet!
Without a doubt the most anticipated appearance of any driver in recent memory will be in action this Thursday Night at the Borderline Speedway contesting the 2020 Kings Sprintcar Challenge. Kyle Larson, one of Americas best drivers in NASCAR, Midgets and Sprintcars of course makes a return to Australia this week for a short 5-day tour which includes this event. Larson just won the biggest Speedcar race in the world on the weekend – The Chilli Bowl and is in white hot form heading into his Australian visit. He will be joined by several American counterparts in team mate Carson Macedo (both will be racing for Dyson Motorsports out of Sydney), last weekend’s Allstars Challenge winner young gun Kalib Henry (Lewiston Haulahge/Adrad Radiators Racing), Shane Stewart (Dickson Motorsports) who returns in his first run at the Kings since 2017 and Buddy Kofoid who will be piloting the Downing Bros #97 machine out of Adelaide, Buddy finished a fantastic 7th place at the Chilli Bowl last weekend so he is also in very good form. The Knoxville Nationals winner from 2010 is also in the field, Tim Shaffer who is running for Brad Keller Racing out of Adelaide will be another to keep an eye on. Cory Eliason has also entered and has also won an A Main in Sydney this tour and the Diamond Bay team will be looking to add to that come Thursday Night.
The Australian contingent is fierce and will take it right up to the USA Stars in the form of Kerry Madsen, Ian Madsen, James McFadden, Grant Anderson, Luke Oldfield, Jock Goodyer, Marcus & Matt Dumesny, Brock Hallett, Robbie Farr, Sam Walsh, Brooke Tatnell, WA’s Ben Ellement & Jason Kendrick, Danny Reidy, Luke Dillon just to name a few. Local stars will be in action in the form of Glen Sutherland & Scott Enderl, and current World Series Sprintcars Champion and a two-time Kings Challenge winner Steven Lines.
Picking a winner out of the 48-car entry list is not an easy task. The racing will be first class as always at Borderline.
