AMERICAN sprintcar driver Shane Stewart will vie for a second Grand Annual Sprintcar Classic title after throwing his support behind the 2014 event.
Stewart won the coveted Classic crown in 2010 after finishing second in 2005, 2009 and third in 2007.
He will drive for West Australian team Monte Motorsport.
Stewart had a strong American season.
He claimed a fifth Knoxville 360 Nationals Crown, qualified for the Knoxville 410 Nationals final from the second row of the feature and claimed another Canadian Nationals victory in September.
Premier Speedway general manager David Mills said he was thrilled to have Stewart’s nomination come across his desk this week.
“As was the case with Steven Lines and Brooke Tatnell, any time we can confirm the nomination of a previous Classic champion it is very exciting and Shane is no exception to that rule,” Mills said.
“Shane’s form in America this northern summer has again seen him produce some great performances and I am sure that Luch Monte and Kim Buswell will give him all the very best go-fast bits he needs to be a strong contender come the Classic.”
The 42nd Lucas Oil Grand Annual Sprintcar Classic will be held at Premier Speedway on January 24, 25 and 26 next year.
