THE fun goes up a level and mix in some exciting racing and the only place you’ll want to be this Saturday night is at Heytesbury Stockfeeds Simpson Speedway.
The second annual Victorian SRA Pro Sprints Championship sponsored by Mainline DynoLog Dynamometers has attracted a stout field including 2022 Grand Annual Sprintcar Classic champion Lachlan McHugh.
The hard-driving Gold Coast racer will make the trip to Victoria to drive the Domain Ramsay-owned machine and join teammate and recent race winner at Warrnambool, Jordan Rae.
Current Pro Sprints state champion Brenten Farrer is aiming to defend his title and although this is a non-points round for the division, Paul Solomon who is the series leader, he’s one of 30 cars entered as is hard-charger Rusty Hickman.
Portland’s Daniel Storer in his first season of racing has already tasted success with a last lap victory in the fourth round of the series last weekend at Horsham’s Blu Ribbon Raceway.
Simpson’s John Vogels is due for a change of luck and on his home track will be hard to beat. Cobden’s Dale Walsh and Camperdown’s Andy Hibbert will give the partisan crowd something to cheer about also.
Warrnambool regular Wingless Sprints driver Harry Ross again add to his track time in a sprintcar as will Allansford’s Jett Bell in the Eastham family-owned car.
The Formula 500s in both senior and junior also feature on the program – there’s 35 seniors and 10 juniors set to scream into action sponsored by The Tyre Factory.
The 2022 version of “Green Night” was hailed a success by organisers and helped raise further awareness and much-needed funds for The Gillin Boys Foundation – Muscular Dystrophy Awareness Warrnambool.
Popular Sydney Speedway commentator Stuart McCarthy is making the trip to Simpson to be a special part of the night and is sure to add some quirky and fun comments into the racing.
Fans are once again asked to wear something green or create their own colourful design.
On the night there will be a prize for the best dressed in green as well as donation tins and a raffle on the night with all proceeds to be donated directly to the foundation.
