Saturday Night the unmistakable roar of 410 Cubic Inch V8 Engines will return to Blue Ribbon Raceway.
It has been six years since the SRA Victorian Sprintcars raced at the Kalkee track, and club members are excited to see their return.
Drivers from across the nation representing six states have nominated for the event. All but one of the current top ten championship drivers will be racing for points for the Eureka Series on Saturday.
Blue Ribbon Raceway will host the penultimate round of the series, which has raced at many of the tracks around Victoria this season. Only 397 points separate the current to 5 drivers, but with a possible 430 points on offer, the championship is still wide open.
The Sprintcar Racing Association of Victoria is returning to Blue Ribbon Raceway at Horsham this weekend for the penultimate round of the 2016-2017 Eureka Garages & Sheds Sprintcar Series that is still a wide open affair for the Eureka Series Championship Crown between five drivers.
The current Eureka Series Champion Brett Milburn took the Eureka Garages & Shed / KTM points leads after round thirteen last weekend at Premier Speedway from Tim Van Ginneken who had two bad nights in a row but still sits only one hundred and ten points behind Brett Milburn.
Warracknabeal business person and reknowned speedway driver Kathryn Wilken-Jackson had the ride of her life on Saturday night at Blue Ribbon Raceway.
Wilken-Jackson is well known in speedway circles for her talent behind the wheel of her Commodore Street Stock and on Saturday night was in a position to have one of the best nights of her career.
“I had been having really good luck in the heats racing against all the boys and had made the shootout for the starting positions in the final and I was rapt just to be able to be up there”, Ms Wilken-Jackson said.
“I had a great run in the shootout and won the front row outside pole, in front of some of the best streetie drivers in the series, it was looking really good for the final”, she said.
