Welcome to www.maxdumesny.com – the official website for legendary Australian Sprintcar superstar Max Dumesny.

This year Max celebrates a milestone in what has been an outstanding career as he sets off on his 25th year in Sprintcar Racing.

Now that’s remarkable.

Starting off his career back in 1983 Max claimed the Wayne Fisher Memorial as his first ever main event victory and since then he’s added race after race, title after title, series crown after series crown.

These days a family man and father of four based in Nelson NSW, this affable, laid back character was born in the tiny hamlet of Nullawarre near Warrnambool in Victoria.

With a blossoming career behind the handlebars it was first believed that the young Dumesny would go on to a national scrambles career, but fate intervened on a dark night not far from home when, riding his motorcycle, he struck a cow that had wandered on to the road.

Battling back from bleak injuries sustained in the crash, Dumesny pondered a career on four wheels and sensibly moved into the Formula 500 category where he tasted national title champagne before taking up an opportunity with Victorian motor and racecar guru John Sidney to drive Sprintcars.

The rest, as they say, is history.

Dumesny these days is a prolific race winner across all States and territories of Australia.

His annual pilgrimage across the country to visit many track that his rivals often shun has seen him build up a legion of fans in any State he travels to.

His no-nonsense approach to racing prevents him from being controversial or arguing an official’s decision in public, so you’ll never see the #5 Valvoline / GKR machine holding up the show.

With no less than 7 World Series Sprintcars Championships under his belt he’s a living legend in terms of the Championship widely regarded as the ‘real’ test of an Australian Champion.

Of course he’s also won 3 Australian Championships as well and numerous State Titles, Warrnambool Classics and more Easter Trails than anyone in the history of the sport.

The fact that he wins so many races and travels so far across the country to compete each year is only part of the appeal however.

The cheeky personality, the laid back approach to racing, the patience he has with fans of all ages, and the ‘aint goin down til the sun comes up’ team philosophy all add up to produce one of the most lovable characters in the history of Australian Speedway.

There’s no one else like him…
