The Grand Annual Sprintcar Classic Champion of 2011 and 2013 and the recently Crowned 2018-19 World Series Sprintcars Speedweek Champion, Steven Lines, is locked in for a tilt at a third Classic Crown.
Lines is now amongst a field that has grown to in excess of 80 cars as the countdown to the 47th running of the South West Conveyancing Grand Annual Sprintcar Classic enters its final two weeks.
Lines, who claimed the opening night of Speedweek with a win at Murray Bridge in South Australia, narrowly held off current Australian Champion Madsen for the Speedweek Crown in the dying laps of Tuesday’s 35 finale at Sungold Stadium, Premier Speedway, Warrnambool.
Already this season Lines’ form at Premier Speedway has been impressive, with four starts yielding him two third place finishes, a fourth and a sixth, thus ranking him as one of the genuine chances for Classic success.
