Racers Revved Up For Super Dirt Series
WHEN it comes to Hessions Auto Parts Grafton Speedway over the Christmas-New Year period, Christmas is going to come a bit late for speedway enthusiasts, with the second running of the two-night Super Dirt Series for V8 Dirt Modifieds on the Thursday and Friday night of December 29 and 30.
After the successful running of the inaugural event last season, the Super Dirt Series for this season has attracted a selection of the country’s best V8 Dirt Modifieds, which includes five-time Australian Champion and defending Super Dirt Series Champion Kevin Britten (Qld).
Apart from the driver talent of Britten, there is going to be a heavy line up of local contenders aiming to vie for the overall Super Dirt Series spoils, such as youngster Seiton Connor-Young who took out last month’s Grafton Speedway season opener, the father and daughter duo of Andrew and Taylah Firth, Joshua Rose and the Corbett brothers Chris and Dale, along with out-of-town challengers in two other young chargers in Blake Eveleigh and Brock Gardiner.
There is no doubt that the Super Dirt Series is set to be hotly contested with a field of 20 V8 Dirt Modifieds expected to tackle the 400-metre Grafton Speedway track and picking a winner over the two nights of action will certainly be no easy feat.
Supporting the Super Dirt Series over the two nights will be the AMCA Nationals, which will feature the likes of Australian Champion Steve Price, Matt and Russ Hardy and Late Model veteran and AMCA National newcomer Ross Nicastri, Street Stockers, Production Sedans, Four Cylinder Sedans and Junior Sedans.
Grafton Speedway would like to thank Hessions Auto Parts for their 2022-23 season support, which is their sixth consecutive season as the track’s naming-right’s sponsor.
