This Saturday night marks the season finale for Latrobe Speedway and what a night it promises to be with sprint cars, wingless, modifieds, street stocks and more.

And it all ends with the massive Eve of Destruction demolition derby.

Sprintcars headline the racing with a solid 13-car entry list. Nick Penno won his first feature last weekend holding out Jamie Bricknell in a thrilling race, and is eager to do it again.

Jason Redpath had a massive crash and the crew have been working overtime to swap the running gear into another chassis.

 Early feature leader last weekend Adam Alexander and Jock Goodyer will also be contenders.

The wingless sprint on-track rivalry between Jeremy Smith and Luke Redpath continues to escalate with the duo dicing and trading places again in last weekend’s final.

A huge field of modifieds includes Brad Herbert and Jake Taurian fresh from racing interstate for the Australian and Victorian championships.

Josh Marston returns after his crew chief/father Peter Marston underwent recent surgery and he will be fired up for a good result.

Another massive field of street stocks will take to the arena and the battle between the leading cars has been fierce with plenty of panel rubbing and wheel banging as the quick cars power their way to the head of the pack.

Look for some big performances from Corey Bauld, Ben Riley, Troy Russell and Matt Hammond to name a few.

AMCAs always provide great racing and this is their last meeting for this season, so all competitors will want to go out on a winning note.

Dennis Davidson is looking to repeat last weekend’s feature win, although Adrian Bassett, Jake Briggs, Ray Taylor and Jake Williams could well upset his plans.

Street stock star Dale Riley Jr will race the AMCA of Owen Tubb and could well surprise a few of the regulars as he does double duty racing the street stock as well on the same night.

It will also be the last race for Formula 500s and in recent weeks their racing has been ultra-fast and exciting.

Another massive field of street stocks will take to the arena and the battle between the leading cars has been fierce with plenty of panel rubbing and wheel banging ...

The little pocket rockets have a solid field for this late in the season.

Jock Goodyer and Dylan Beveridge will have their work cut out for them holding off Kristian Kelly, Taylor Johnson and Nick Kingston.

Starting proceedings will be kart racing on the infield track from 4pm, with nearly 50 entries in juniors, seniors and 125 classes.

The close nature and the fact that this is the only division where you can see every move the driver makes means it will be worthwhile arriving early to watch. 

Ending the night will be a last-car-running, winner-takes-all Demolition Derby that will contain some familiar names.
