Rushworth Speedway has attracted some of the best drivers in the country for this weekend’s Automotive Super Balance Ironbark Classic. The Automotive Super Balance team have supported this event which has attracted 6 NSW registered drivers and a total of 16 GP Midgets which are sure to put on some great entertainment and close wheel to wheel action for the Rushworth locals. Automotive Super Balance who have been a big supporter of the VGPMRA and the wider speedway community for many years have a fully equipped workshop based in Shepparton and can handle all your engine reconditioning and tailshaft balancing needs. With a focus on customer care and understanding, Automotive Super Balance perform repairs on all makes and models of cars. If they don’t know it, it’s not worth knowing.

Nominations include, last start feature winner Chris Fowler, Jason Crawford and Travis Florrimell who returns for his first hit out of the 2019/20 season. Whilst crossing the boarder for a final run before their NSW Title the following week are reigning Ironbark Classic Champion Janelle Saville who’s bringing with her the Bowyer boys in Gary Bowyer and son Riley, whilst Trevor Perry who has many feature wins and titles to his name will also be hard to beat. Throw in a string of other competitors such as Lisa Chalcraft a former winner of this event, Mark Blackeby, Paul Perry, Sean Denning, David Bacon, and then some of the rookies who have shown already they are more than worthy of being out there such as Alex Myers, Terry Brown, Luke Stanley and Chris Carr. The most interesting part will be to not only see the battle at the front between a potential 5 or 6 drivers but the battles that we’ll see throughout. Not only are the drivers vying for the Ironbark Classic but Saturday night will also go towards points for the Ballistic Performance Parts Masters Series and the B-grade championship as well which at the moment is very close. If that’s not enough for you then a curve ball has been thrown in for some added entertainment! Once the heats have been run and won the high points scorer on the night will then be given the big ultimatum to either start from the rear in the final for the chance to win an additional $100 prize money if they are good enough to make their way through traffic to take the victory OR draw for starting position 2, 4, 6 or 8 and the grid will be reversed from the chosen position. This certainly add another dimension to the race. Will the drivers be all out for glory to take the coveted Ironbark Classic, will they be foot to the floor to gain as many points for Ballistic Performance Parts Masters Series or will they be just wanting to take a confidence boosting win before next weekend’s NSW Title, time will tell. No doubt the racing will be hard and fast with racing action kicking into gear at 4pm this Saturday night at Rushworth Speedway and this is certainly one you don’t want to miss out on.
