Albury’s Grant Anderson continues to lead the Essendon Ford Sprintcar Premiership at Geelong’s Avalon Raceway following the most recent round of the season long track championship. Last Thursday’s World Series Sprintcars event provided a number changes in the top 10 with race winner David Murcott jumping into seventh position while Stephen Bell managed to close within 5 points to leader Anderson.

Anderson failed to improve on his points haul on Thursday night yet had a sufficient points advantage to still lead the track championship that carries a brand new Ford Fiesta courtesy of Essendon Ford. Avalon Raceway commentator Brian Alexander confirms that the next round of the track championship will be Wednesday night, January 19th when the President’s Cup will be staged.

“Once again there will be a host of top level drivers appearing at the President’s Cup which will no doubt take away some valuable points from regular’s such as Anderson, Bell, Brett Milburn and Darren Mollenoyux who are right in the middle of this track championship,” said Alexander.

He also went on to say that should the top six drivers ahead of him miss the A-main at the President’s Cup and David Murcott was to win then he would shoot to the lead in the standings.

“It’s a long shot that the leading six drivers may miss the A-main completely but if it did happen then Murcott would be in the box seat given the points structure. One thing is for sure that the top 10 is starting to take shape and Anderson certainly has the best position right now.”
