WARRNAMBOOL sprintcar driver Corey McCullagh will return to the scene of his life-changing Grand Annual Sprintcar Classic victory on Sunday in winning form.

McCullagh, who will be among the SRA series’ grand final contenders at Premier Speedway, stormed from the B-Main to win the A-Main in the penultimate round at Avalon on Saturday night.

He came from 14th to win the feature from Marcus Dumesny and Charles Hunter. 

“We started a little further back and still managed to win which was good,” McCullagh said.

“We had car issues all night and qualified badly because of that and the way the track was, there wasn’t much passing. Luckily in the A the track slickened up and we managed to nail the set up and go from there.”

Only nine of the 18 drivers finished the feature.

“The format was a bit weird – they even had a D and C Main. It was brutal on points, so even really good guys missed out on the feature,” McCullagh said.

McCullagh will contest the SRA decider and three nights of the Easter sprintcar trail before a well-earned rest.
