FREMONT, Ohio – Australian hot-shoe James McFadden is ready to hit the United States for a 26-race schedule aboard the potent JG Racing No. 3G Machine, kicking off on Memorial Day Weekend with the All Star Circuit of Champions at Fremont Speedway.

“I am really excited to get started with the Joe Gaerte team,” McFadden said. “It’s identical to the car I run at home, so I think we should be pretty good right out of the box.”

With two World Series Sprint Car Series Championships under his belt in the last three years, as well as numerous victories, the highly decorated Australian driver will kick off his aggressive schedule at the Fremont Speedway with the All Star Circuit of Champions Memorial Day weekend.

The following weekend he will be at the Attica Raceway Park and I-96 Speedway with the World of Outlaws before the highly anticipated June 4 return to the Kokomo Speedway in Kokomo, Ind.

“We have been close the last couple of years to picking up an Outlaw win, so I am hoping we have a Top-Five car every night, and can grab some wins to justify our trip over,” he added.

McFadden will then gear up for the very grueling Ohio Speedweeks with the All Stars visiting eight tracks, and racing nine times in nine days.

“Speedweeks are always tough, but so much fun, so I am thrilled everyone was on board with running it,” he added.

The JG Racing team will then hit a 360ci NRA race at Waynesfield, Ohio on July 3, before McFadden visits the Knoxville Raceway on July 5 for Double feature night.

They keep up with the World of Outlaws as they hit Limaland on July 9th for the Brad Doty Classic, and then McFadden heads to Eldora for the King’s Royal.

While in the US, the Australian driver will also visit Canada for two night’s at Ohsweken Speedway on July 28th and 29th, a location that the 3G cars has been very strong at in years past.

Two nights at Pevely, Mo.’s I-55 Speedway on Aug. 1-2 open the door for McFadden’s final stint in the U.S., a trip to the Marion County Fairgrounds for the famed Knoxville Nationals.

“I am really excited with the schedule we have put together,” McFadden said. “We race a little bit of everything, and I am very eager to get started with everyone involved. I cannot thank them enough for this opportunity, and I’m hoping we can run well.”
