Since 1980 the Easter Sprintcar Trail has been the Traditional Finale to the Sprintcar Racing Season within Victoria and South Australia.

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 racing.

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.
