Since 1980 the Easter Sprintcar Trail has been the
Traditional Finale to the Sprintcar Racing Season within Victoria and
The very first Easter Sprintcar Trail was
contested over three nights at Mt. Gambier, Warrnambool and Bendigo,
with venues such as Portland, Geelong and the now defunct Melbourne
Speedbowl having also hosted rounds, with the 1982, 1983, 1998 and
2001 Easter Trail’s having consisted of four consecutive nights of
Premier Speedway, Warrnambool is the only venue to have
been a part of each-and-every Easter Sprintcar Trail. Of the 124
scheduled rounds of the Easter Trail since 1980, ten have been lost to
weather, with Max Dumesny having won 31 different rounds with Robbie
Farr and Garry Rush both having secured 12 round wins at Easter, with
Steven Lines having won nine.
In 2019 Jamie Veal collected a
$10,000.00 bonus for Sweeping all three nights of competition, taking
his tally of round wins to five.
The 2020 Easter Sprintcar
Trail unfortunately fell victim to the COVID-19 Pandemic, with all
three rounds being cancelled.
