Plenty on offer as top street stock drivers hit Speedway
SPEEDWAY: There's plenty on offer tonight at Trevan Ford Grafton Speedway as drivers battle for honours in Stocksville 2016, while the Wingless Sprintcar and V8 Dirt Modified competitors chase top points in another round of the Driver to America series.
The Blue Water Mechanical Stocksville 2016 event will see many of the top Street Stocks drivers in NSW racing for honours.
In what will be one of the longest races of the season, the final will be held over a distance of 30 laps. Six qualifying heats also will be contested to determine the field for Stocksville 2016.
Meanwhile, points will be vital in the next round of the Wingless Sprintcar Driver to America series.
It is congested at the top of the point standings as Mick Santin holds a slender one point advantage over Robert Mazzer and Warren King who are equal second on the table with six points each.
Only one point behind sharing third are Mitchell Randall (five) and Kevin Willis (five).
Willis is the form driver at present following his sensational victory last month at Castrol Edge Lismore Speedway in the 100-lap Australian Wingless Sprintcar Grand Prix.
V8 Dirt Modified drivers Brent Hall and Chris Corbett will be hoping to make up a points deficit with a good performance in the next round of the Driver to America series for their racing division.
Each driver has scored five points and are equal third in the standings, trailing second-placed Jai Stephenson by one point.
Former Australian V8 Dirt Modified Champion Scott Cannon (nine points) currently enjoys a three-point break at the top of the chart on Stephenson.
"There is plenty of incentive for a number of drivers to get into the major placings in their respective main events at Grafton this weekend. It augurs well for some tough competition among the top runners," promoter David Lander said.
Limited Sedans, Junior Sedans, National Four Cylinder Sedans and also Production Sedans are programmed as the support categories.
Gates open at 3PM and first race is at 6.
