Cannon shoots into V8 title

SCOTT Cannon, of Newcastle, will be one of the main chances in the V8 Dirt Modified NSW Championship at Grafton Speedway tonight.

Cannon won the inaugural Max Trotter Memorial Trophy in Victoria last weekend.

He won Saturday night’s event and was placed third on Sunday night to be the top pointscorer overall.

Grafton driver Jai Stephenson also travelled to Victoria to contest the Memorial Trophy but had a run of bad luck all weekend, not making the feature events on both nights.

Let’s hope Stephenson has a change of luck tonight; it would be good to see the local driver take out the championship in front of his home crowd.

Last year’s State championship winner Matt Pascoe from Queensland also returns to defend his title crown as well as Phil McNamara who won the event at Grafton the previous year.

Also included in the program tonight will be AMCA Nationals, Limited Sprinters, Stockers, Juniors, Stockrods and Surfers Paradise Sedans.

Racing starts from 5.30pm.
