Trevor Perry and Jason Crawford will go into this Saturday's Ballistic Performance Parts Masters Series Round 4 as a red hot favourites after Perry snatched victory from Jason Crawford in the final heat of last weekend's Thunder at the Murray event. Perry was in fine form after missing the first heat of last weekend however some will say he was lucky after Crawford who had been consistent all weekend long dropped his chain with half a lap to go in the final heat handing the win to Perry. Although these two will go in as favourites it will not be as simple as tossing a coin to see who wins with Lisa Chalcraft showing a strong performance in 3rd last weekend with a car that probably wasn't at it's best on the second night. No doubt the Chalcraft family will have the car cherry ripe for Saturday and she will certainly be in the mix. Travis Florimell would have to be one of the under dogs for Saturday after showing good speed and taking out a heat victory at Wahgunyah if he can put it all together and stay out of trouble he will give the other drivers something to think about. The current Australian champion Paul Perry took it right up to his brother last week and is starting to get back into some great form and will be one to watch. Chris Fowler was a last start winner at Wangaratta however he has been up and down this season, he knows his way around the this track quite well and should be in the mix come the end of the night. Sean "the sheep" Denning will be out again this week after sustaining some damage last weekend and the Perry Bros Chassis number 37 of David Bacon will see him step aside after the debut of his new car last weekend as he installs Janelle Saville from NSW in the pilot seat for the weekend. There is no doubting Janelle's talents behind the wheel and with the Yahama R1 behind her she will be one to watch. Marty Job will be back out on the track for his first run since the Victorian Title earlier this month. Marty is hopeful that his luck will change and is looking forward to a strong performance. Also looking for a strong performance is Louis Rodriguez who only completed one night of the two night event last weekend after breaking a sprocket in Friday night's competition. This weekend he is hoping to put the gremlins that have plagued him for the past season behind him and get back to the front of the field where he has shown he can run in the past. It's something we seem to say a lot, how close and competitive the GP Midget racing is however this season seems to be taking it up another notch with more than a handful of drivers capable of being on the top step of the podium come Saturday night. If you're looking for some close, hard and fast racing this weekend Wangaratta Speedway is the place to be. Racing from 4pm see you there.
