Racing returns to the Kingaroy Speedway on the Queen’s Birthday long weekend (September 29-30) with the 28th running of the Queensland Street Sedan Title.
This is only the sixth time that the Title has been held in Kingaroy, and in a departure from tradition it is being run at the start of the speedway season.
Entrants will be competing for the Keith Harm Trophy, named after the Harm family patriarch and stalwart of South Burnett speedway who died in July last year.
The first State Title was held at Mothar Mountain in Gympie in 1986. Kingaroy hosted the event in 1988, 1991, 1999, 2003 and 2007.
Local drivers have enjoyed much success in the event, including Chris Kidd, and Craig Harm and Brett Barron who have both taken home the Title twice.
The weekend of racing will also include the South Burnett Stampede (AMCA racers), Junior Sedans, 4 Cylinders, Australian stock cars (Saturday) and Modified Productions (Sunday).
