It's been a case of all revved up and no race to go to for the speedway fraternity recently with the first four meetings cancelled mainly due to weather.
But the season finally roars into life this Saturday night at Latrobe, much to the delight and relief of fans, with more than 150 entries for this meeting.
The super sedans head up the show with an impressive 21-car entry list.
Local star Callum Harper is always hard to beat on his home track but Adam Beechey and Steve Latham can take the challenge to him.
Challenging is one thing but actually beating him is a tough task.
Other stars to watch include David Nichols, Robert Bird, Laura Davidson and Wayne Dillon.
The line-up includes three rookies who are all champions in other divisions.
Luke Gunn, Andy Russell and Peter Johnston will certainly have a baptism of fire among the seasoned stars.
The street stocks have an insane 44-car field for the Brett Waddington Memorial and they will all have to be aggressive in their heats just to make the final.
Steven Harvey won his state championship here last season and appears the driver to beat.
The depth of talent in this division is incredible with half the field viable chances for victory.
Late models have had strong growth in the off season with plenty of new drivers lining up against established drivers.
Brad Smith, Tim Pyke, Callum Harper and Paul Howard should do well.
Callum Harper and Corey Bauld are doing double duty - Harper in the super sedan and Bauldy the street stocks.
Formula 500s have an impressive 16-car field and the new division drivers have all shown great car speed in practice.
Wingless sprints too have been busy in the off season growing their category.
Kaleb Sims, one of the new drivers to the division, is also a champion speedway kart racer and will continue doing double duty racing the wingless and a senior kart.
Modifieds have the smallest field with nine entries but their close-quarter racing is always a crowd-pleaser.
Gates open at 2pm with kart racing from 4pm and main track action from 6pm with COVID compliance requirements in place.
