Sprintcars are back at Blue Ribbon again this Saturday, Modified Sedans too

This Saturday night at Blue Ribbon Speedway Horsham, the Sprintcars are back and this time we are bringing in the 410ci powered 900 horsepower beasts of the Sprintcar Racing Association and that is not all, we bring to you the Victorian Modified Promotional Association and their popular Modified Sedans supported by Production Sedans and Junior Sedans from 5.30pm when the first green flag is scheduled to drop for race one.

Leading the Sprintcar line-up is four of the top five drivers in the current season’s point score with Daniel Pestka from South Australia, Tate Frost from Tasmania, Grant Anderson from Wagga and Brett Milburn from the Mornington Peninsula all keen to leave Horsham as the season leader. There will be thrills and spills from the Sprintcars as usual in a field hard to pick the exact winner from.

Australian Modified Sedan champion Kye Walters will compete in the latest round of the state series for Modified Sedans as he steps into his partner Rachael Pratt’s race car to compete. Walters who won the first round at Moama, will lead a line-up that includes two of our own local club members, the returning Mark Deckert and Daniel Simpson plus Horsham raised Matt Gerlach.

Brothers Brock and Todd Atkins from Hamilton will challenge strongly from the almost thirty car field as will Wade McCarthy, Jarrod Waters, Graham West, and Brody Chrystie amongst others.

A small line-up of Junior Sedans has entered the meeting with Dylan Barrow, Bailey Rumler and Jake Bradley some of the youngsters to watch whilst Rebecca Johnstone will represent Horsham on Saturday night.

Production Sedan racing has attracted a ten-car line-up with Steve Honeyman and Ryan Queale representing the Wimmera. Ben Barker, Dehne Sparrow, and Ian Calderwood are likely to be at the front of the field protagonists with results on the board for them.

All the action is at 1650 Blue Ribbon Road, Kalkee with racing from 5.30pm. Gates to the public will be opened at 4pm. The Pit Entrance for competitors will be opened from 11am.

Admission prices are Adults $25, Pensioners $20, Students aged 12 to 16 $15 kids under 12 years of age are free. A family ticket of two adults, and two children above the age of 12 to 16 is $60.
