After a weekend off, sprintcars are ready for attack at the Make Smoking History Bunbury Speedway with the Auto One Sprintcar Grand Slam.

For the first time this season, sprintcars return to the South West venue in readiness for round five of the Maddington Toyota Sprintcar Series.

Leading the charge is Jamie Maiolo who already has two round wins so far this season but will face strong competition from series leader and younger brother Brad who has already played his joker card for the series.

Jason Kendrick, who has not yet won a round this season is one driver who is looking to turn his luck around as mechanical dramas have hampered the majority of his series so far.
