Local riders Sam Davies and James Chapman are set to compete in the 30th staging of the annual Trackmasters motorcycle race meeting this weekend at the Barleigh Ranch Raceway.
Local juniors Chayse Trappel, Jarred Loveday, Jayden Holder and Sonny Spurgin will also be in action.
The competition has attracted many of Australia's leading senior and junior stars.
The Trackmasters was originally staged at the Newcastle Showground in 1990 before becoming a highlight of the Hunter Motorcycle Club's season at the Barleigh Ranch complex.
The meeting will be particularly important for the senior riders as a prelude to the 2019 Australian Senior Dirt Track Championship meeting coming up in October at the same venue.
Junior racing should also be hotly contested with a sprinkling of national and state champions through the various age groups.
There will also be racing for dirt track sidecars, ATVs, a women's class and classes for older bikes and older riders.
Action gets under way both days at 10am.
The Barleigh Ranch track is situated just off the Pacific Highway at Eagleton and admission on Saturday is free, and on Sunday $10.00 per car.
