After last running a race in 2018, Trav Milburn is back in the Stadium Super Trucks. On Thursday, with a week before the Boost Mobile Super Trucks‘ race weekend at the Merlin Darwin Triple Crown at Hidden Valley Raceway, Milburn confirmed his entry in the #70 truck with sponsorship from Coregas and Move Yourself Trailer Hire.

“Gday guys, I’m very excited to announce I’ll be racing the Darwin Supercars round of Boost Mobile Stadium Super Trucks Australia round at Hidden Valley Raceway in #darwin next weekend,” Milburn began on Facebook. “Coregas has come aboard as our major partner which we are super pumped about!”

Attached to the post was a video of him visiting the company’s Adelaide branch. Coregas provides gases such as compressed air and of various elements for Australian companies and nitrogen for motorsport.

An off-road racer who regularly competes in Trophy Karts, Milburn made his SST début in the 2016 season opener at his hometown Adelaide Street Circuit. Sharing a truck with Move Yourself CEO and off-road colleague Rob Cowie, Milburn finished seventh and twelfth in his two starts.

“Move Yourself is super excited to be supporting @travmilburnmotorsport as he races a @ssupertrucksau @supercarsdarwin next weekend, live and free to air,” wrote the company on Instagram. “We’re also super excited to assist in partnering one of our integral suppliers to our business @coregas_au. If you’re heading to the race, our CEO @robcowie192 will be in the pit with Trav so please come say hi!”

He raced exclusively at Adelaide and Perth in 2017 and 2018. Serving as a substitute for Jeff Hoffman at the 2017 Perth weekend, Milburn scored his first podium when he finished second. The following year at Adelaide, he equalled that finish in a dramatic Race #3 conclusion as race leader Robby Gordon ran wide in the final corner and fourth-placed Milburn slipped by Toby Price to gain two positions. The runner-up finish enabled him to take third for the overall weekend.

Milburn’s most recent run in a stadium truck, Perth in 2018, saw him finish sixth and seventh. The series’ year-long ban from Motorsport Australia-sanctioned events in 2019 and the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 wiped out any potential dates for Milburn over the next two years.

A finalised entry list for the Darwin weekend has not been released, but Speedcafe reported Tuesday that Milburn is one of ten drivers entered for the weekend alongside Dave Casey, Shae Davies, Craig Dontas, Greg Gartner, Russell Ingall, Paul Morris, Shaun Richardson, Paul Weel, and Rob Whyte. All but Dontas, Gartner, and Whyte ran the season opener at Tasmania in April, though everyone has prior SST experience.

The Darwin Triple Crown will take place on 18–20 June. SST’s lone trip to Hidden Valley Raceway took place in 2017, where current points leader Morris and Matt Brabham won the three rounds.
