Latest V8 Supercar "bolter" Steve Ellery has joined the list of high-speed sportsmen who will attend a unique family day at Parramatta Park in Sydney this Saturday.

Ellery has had a constant smile on his face since he and co-driver Luke Youlden drove to second place in their Super Cheap Auto Racing Falcon in last weekend's Betta Electrical Sandown 500 in Melbourne.

Ellery will join Holden V8 Supercar heroes Greg Murphy, Steve Richards and Cameron McConville and Ford's David Besnard and Steve Johnson at Parramatta Park from 9am to 1pm.

The appearances will be part of a unique family day being used as the public launch of the VIP Petfoods Main Event which will be held as the last round of the V8 Supercar Championship Series at Eastern Creek Raceway on November 28-30 -- and admission is free!

The V8 Supercar stars will join with Triple M sporting celebrities in a fantastic pre-event promotion designed for fans of all ages.

Triple M's highly successful Dead Set Legends show, headed by Rugby League commentator Ray Warren and starring sporting celebrities such as Paul "Fatty" Vautin, Russell Barwick, Anthony Moron and Greg Matthews, will be conducting its first outside broadcast in almost three years.

The result last weekend was one of the best of Ellery's career and he cannot wait to celebrate in Sydney this weekend.

"Last weekend was a pretty special result in some pretty tough conditions," said Ellery.

"I am looking forward to having a chat with the Sydney fans and signing a few autographs this weekend.

"I think the VIP Petfoods Main Event at Eastern Creek at the end of November is going to be a cracker."

The day at Parramatta Park will include V8 Supercars and transporters, the Audi pace cars and a host of activities provided by the Life Be In It campaign including earth balls, arts and crafts, an animal farm and face painting.

The will also be a troop of performing dogs, all powered up on VIP Petfood.

General admission tickets for November's Main Event have gone on sale through Ticketmaster7.com and on 1 300 136 122. People wanting to buy for groups of 20 or more can call (02) 82722755.

Anyone pre-buying a ticket for the event through Ticketmaster7 will go into the draw for a host of prizes, including a year's supply of VB beer.

* Admission to the family day this weekend is free!
