It’s been 13 years since James McFadden set foot on the Arunga Park Speedway track in his former hometown of Alice Springs, but it was a triumphant return in last Thursday night’s $20,000 Dance in the Desert for 410 Sprintcars.
Despite the ominous rain clouds setting in over Alice Springs’ Arunga Park Speedway last Saturday night, a great crowd of spectators and drivers turned out for the President’s Cup event, which featured a variety of open wheel, sedan and bike classes.
Commencing what is set to be a massive weekend of motorsport in the Northern Territory, this Thursday night will see the Arunga Park Speedway track light up for the second annual Dance in the Desert event, with home-town hero James McFadden leading a hot field of 410 Sprintcars into battle.
There will be no shortage of entertainment on offer for Alice Springs locals at Arunga Park Speedway this Saturday night, when the track plays host to the President’s Cup, which will consist of no less than eight different classes.
From Alice Springs to the world stage, James McFadden certainly has come a long way since his Dirt Kart days, but later this month, the local turned internationally renowned 410 Sprintcar racer will return to his old stomping ground to take to the Arunga Park Speedway track for the $20,000 Dance in the Desert event.
