James McFadden driving a PWR cooled sprintcar has won the 2013 Australian Sprintcar Championship held at Archerfield Speedway in Brisbane.

A hot favourite for the Championship after his Australian Sprintcar Open win at the venue a week before, McFadden started on the front row alongside David Murcott in the forty lap Championship Final and put in an outstanding drive to catch Murcott in lapped traffic, taking the lead with six laps remaining and going on to take the chequered flag by a little more than half a second.
