For Shaun Dobson, the 2017-18 season is going to be a busy one, as he prepares to split his time between two cars, piloting the David and Gayle Dickson-owned Vic # 3 Essendon Auto Group Racing team car, along with his family-owned VA # 21 Albert Road Store-backed Cool car.

Following the recent announcement of Shaun Dobson joining the Essendon Auto Group Racing team for the 2017-18 season, Stand21’s Australian distributer Tony Dunn has decided to come on board as a sponsor for Dobson throughout the upcoming season.

The 2016-17 has been a breakout 410 Sprintcar season for Shaun Dobson, who contested his final race meeting recently, with the Tasmanian-based racer having achieved a number of impressive results.

Despite narrowly missing out on the overall point standings victory in the Easter Sprintcar Trail, Shaun Dobson’s weekend was highlighted by an impressive opening round victory at Geelong’s Avalon Raceway.

After what has been a breakout season, Shaun Dobson managed to close his campaign at Sydney’s Valvoline Raceway in strong fashion, finishing a pleasing second in Saturday night’s Ultimate Sprintcar Championship Chase Grand Final.

A last-minute decision to venture down to Geelong’s Avalon Raceway for last Saturday night’s 11th Eureka Garages & Sheds Sprintcar Series round rewarded Shaun Dobson with a solid podium finish.

After seven years of Sprintcar racing, Shaun Dobson last Saturday night at Sydney’s Valvoline Raceway drove to his breakthrough major win – the Scott Darley Challenge – which saw him pocket $20,000 in prize money.
