2009 V8 Ute Racing Series
Previous: 2008 Next: 2010

The 2009 Yokohama V8 Ute Racing Series was a motor racing series for Ford Falcon and Holden Utility Trucks built and conforming to V8 Utes series regulations and those holding valid licence to compete as issued by series organisers Spherix and Australian V8 Ute Racing Pty. Ltd. The series formed the ninth running of a national series for V8 Utes in Australia. The series began on 19 March 2009 at the Adelaide Street Circuit and ended on 6 December at the Homebush Street Circuit after 24 races, although one was declared a 'no-race'.

Former Rugby League footballer Jack Elsegood, driving a Ford Falcon XR8 Ute prepared by Wilson Brothers Racing, won his first national series.
