THIS Saturday night Rushworth Speedway is headlined by two big Open Wheel categories with the annual Legends Cup for SDAV Hot Rods and the Victorian Sprintcar Association ready to put on a show for Goulburn Valley motorsport fans.

The Sprintcars are the Formula 1 of dirt track racing.

Most of the competitors at the moment come from Gippsland and it is Bobby Daly, Shane Steenholdt, Mark Noonan, Adam Greenwood and Mark Laity who stand out as those most likely to figure in the finish vying for the chequered flag.

The cars have been exceptionally quick lately and it is possible lap records might be under threat once again at Rushworth.

In Hot Rod racing, Jason May, Jamie May, Russell Hovey and Stan Marco are among the competition in this coveted race that honours past Legends of the SDAV Hot Rod division.

The new Victorian Champion Jason May is the man most likely while Shannon Meakins has been strong and out of luck this season and this could just be his time to shine.

Club Sedan racing battles continue through each and every class as usual starting with the Phil Lamb versus Adam Box battle in the Open Saloons. The end of season race events often dish up fresh new winners for the season, could it be Peter Welch’s turn or perhaps a second victory for Mark Cecil in the season?

Time is running out for Leigh Jeffery to make a stand in Production Sedans this season.

The division has been tightly contested all season long with the likes of Geoff Lee, Wayne O’Keefe and Shane Hutchins figuring more than most in the results, Jeffery is keen to round out the season showing why he was the top dog last year.

In ladies action Chloe Lamb and Jacquie Fitzpatrick are hard to look past when you see their consistent one – two finishes on paper.

Finally, Tristan McGraw fresh off a win is keen to get to battle with Josh Cecil and Lachie Fitzpatrick this weekend in Junior Sedans.

The latter two have most of the victories this season however a win last meeting to McGraw is sure to give him new found confidence to mix it up with the top two.

Racing starts at 4pm with entry costs adult $25, family of two adults and two children $60 while any child under 12 is FREE. Aged pension is $15 and children aged 12 to 16 are $12.50.
