American drivers feeling need for speed at Charlton Raceway

CHARLTON Raceway will have an international feel next weekend when two leading American speedcar drivers hit the track.

Andrew Felker and Alex Bright will make the trip down under for the POWRi Australian Speedcar Super Series.

Toowoomba will host the second round of the four-race series which also features the likes of defending champion Mark Brown and five-time New Zealand champion Michael Kendall.

Both Felker and Bright are coming off career-best seasons in the United States and will be very tough to beat.

Felker, 19, was crowned the 2012 POWRi USA champion in after finishing 100 points clear of his nearest rival.

The Australian series will be the first time he has raced outside of his home country and Felker said he couldn't wait.

"This all came together pretty much in the last second, but I'm really pumped to have this opportunity to take on the competition down under," he said.

"It will be a cool experience. I definitely want to go and represent POWRi well. It will be fun getting the series known in Australia."

Felker will only compete in the first two rounds but Bright is in the series for the long haul.

The 21-year-old finished second in ARDC Midget Championship this year and said he was eager to maintain his excellent form in Australia.

"I can't wait to get down there and be able to race all year long," Bright said.
