Saturday, February 19 will honour a legend of the sport.
Named the “Competitor of the Century”.
Known as “Mr Sprintcar”.
The Mr Sprintcar Alf Barbagallo 77 will headline the night, with the feature race for Sprintcars paying a cool $7,777.77 to win thanks to the support of Barbagallo in Osborne Park.
Alf Barbagallo is the all-time winningest driver at Claremont Speedway, winning 79.5 feature races after dead heating with Ray Geneve on November 27, 1970.
Alf on a record eight occasions, has the most feature wins in a season at Claremont Speedway.
Also a 6-time Western Australian Champion, Alf Barbagallo was inducted into the Claremont Speedway Hall of Fame in the 1999-2000 season.
Just to add a bit more to Barbagallo’s long and illustrious resume, he won the inaugural round of World Series Sprintcars at the Claremont Speedway on 21 November 1987.
Speedway Racing Manager Gavin Migro is thrilled to honour arguably the greatest Sprintcar driver WA has ever produced in such a big way,
“Having the support of the prestigious Barbagallo brand to make this event as big as it can be for Alf is exciting and we can’t wait to see and hear all the memories about his incredible career.”
This night will also see the return of the fan favorite 2×2 knockout to pole.
The February 19 event will see Late Models, Speedcars, Limited Sprintcars and Wingless Sprints on the program for a huge night of Super Speedway action.
