South West motorsport enthusiasts are counting down the days until Sprintcar Speedweek action returns to the Make Smoking History Bunbury Speedway on Sunday.

A concept which pits WA’s finest drivers against quality American opposition, some races are bigger than others, especially from Bunbury-based teams Krikke and Diamond Bay Motorsport.

With the series well and truly up for grabs, all drivers will be keen to put their best foot forward — especially Cory Eliason, who holds a slender lead in the standings heading into round three.

Aside from retaining a series lead, the American would love to chalk up a home win for Diamond Bay Motorsport.

“They (the team) are from Bunbury, this is their race, what they are pumped for and they love it,” Eliason said.
