A PACKED field of 28 drivers have nominated for next week's Junior Sedans Silver Crown at Maryborough Speedway.

The Speedway Sedans Australia race is one of several main attractions during the Tinana venue's huge three-night program, held from December 29-31.

The Silver Crown will be contested on the first two nights of the year-ending extravaganza (December 29-30), and has attracted some of the best young drivers in Queensland.

State champion Ardie Jonic will be an early favourite, while Ipswich's third generation driver Casey O'Connell is a quality up-and-coming driver who finished third at the Queensland Junior Sedans title at Maryborough Speedway in May, earlier this year. Cooper Reid, Bryce Bayfield, and Kayden Swindells are among local drivers who will try to win at their home track.

This year's Silver Crown will be part of the newly launched Junior Sedan Speedweek. The four-night event will include meets at Gympie Speedway on December 28, and Toowoomba's Hi-Tec Oils Speedway on December 31.

Nominations for Maryborough Speedway's event close on Sunday, December 17.
