The countdown has begun for the huge three nights of speedway racing in Kingaroy known as the Kings Royal.
Kings Royal VII for Modified Sedans will be raced across January 25-27 (Friday to Sunday of the Australia Day weekend).
The Modifieds will be accompanied on the program by Production Sedans, Street Stocks and Junior Sedans:
- Friday – Modified Sedans, Production Sedans, Street Stocks
- Saturday – Modified Sedans, Junior Sedans
- Sunday – Modified Sedans, Queens Royal (and fireworks)
The Queens Royal, which celebrates the big contribution women have made to the sport of speedway, is for female drivers only and is open to Street Stocks and Production Sedans.
Nominations are now open for women wanting to take part.
The Queens Royal debuted last year during the Kings Royal weekend and was a big success.

Rain interrupted the December Speedway meeting held in Kingaroy, with the grader having to be brought out after early showers.
The racing was delayed but the rain actually made the track very quick with three lap records being broken on the night:
- Lightning Sprints – Kurt Wilson (12.879 seconds)
- Super Sedans – Darren Kane (13.447 seconds)
- Wingless Sprints – David Eggins (14.801 seconds)
Lockyer Valley driver Jason Rae took the Queensland Title in the Lightning Sprints after just three years racing in the category.
Rae had some luck in the 25-lap final.
Kurt Wilson, who earlier set a lap record in the category, was forced out with mechanical failure in lap 16.
It was back-to-back wins for Rae at Kingaroy, after he took out the A-Main on September 22.
In the Modifieds, Cooroy driver Aidan Raymont again demonstrated why he’s Queensland champion, relegating reigning Kings Royal “King” Greg Worling to third spot in the final.
