Rushworth Speedway will get underway for the new season this Saturday night after the first meeting of the season was cancelled due to weather, the best available Modified Sedan competitors from right around Victoria will be on hand to dish up a terrific show including drivers from Gippsland, Mildura, Geelong and from the Bendigo and Goulburn Valley areas.

The first night of racing also means night one of points toward club championship results for all the Goulburn Valley Sedan classes with currently champions Shane Hutchins, Chloe Lamb and Lachlan Fitzpatrick keen to remind their competitors that they are number one in their classes.

Modified Sedan nominations include Goulburn Valley member Rodney Burr returning to racing after some time away from the track, Graham West from Bendigo in his LJ Torana also brings a local flavour to the meeting.

Nick Cockerill, Brock Atkins, Andrew Blackwell a two times national champion, Darren Cockerill, David Smith also a former national champion, Kye Walters and Matt Nelson are just some of the competitors to keep an eye on when it comes to the feature race.

In Open Saloons Michael Wicks in the Hyundai returns in what looks like an open field when it comes to podium positions, the Ladies Saloons see’s Chloe and Kelly Lamb set to compete against Cassie Wicks, picking a winner seems difficult. Production Sedans have the biggest field of entrants of the local classes and Shane Hutchins will find competition tough against the likes of Geoff Lee, Mark Cecil, Bevan Hutchins, Ian Wilson, Troy Britton, Leigh Jeffery and Mikey Naismith.

Junior Sedans champion Lachlan Fitzpatrick and his toughest competitor last season Tristan McGraw will have to compete against Todd Atkins which should spice things up a little more.

Racing begins from 4pm on Saturday with entry costs $25 per adult, aged pensioners are $15, kids 12 to 16 are $12.50 each and under the age of 12 is FREE, whilst a family of 2 adults and 2 kids 12 to 16 is $60
