    Smith and Woods team have given three drivers a B-grade championship. Clayton Pyne, Ian Black, and Brent Jameson. Not bad. The Hawk engine keeps chalking up victories all the time.

    Keep up the excellent work too
    2 question might throw some good ones
    Did Rushie ever run B grade Speedcars
    Same with David House

    When Rushie came into midget racing around the mid to late 60's, there was no season's b-grade championship. The b-grade championship was decided at the end of the racing season at the showground during the running of the World Speedcar Championship. It was decided over one race and was called, the N.S.W. Junior Speedcar Championship. In 1967, Garry lined up in the 10 lap championship in position 7 in the 12 car field in, would you believe, the bloody #24 MORTON AND MAY Repco Holden, but the winner that year from position 12 was Jim Bayles.
    As far as David House is concerned,it doesn't look like he won a b-grade championship, unless he won it in the 1980/81 season.

    :confused: feeling age stricken as thought Junior Speedcars were TQs, Compacts (digging through my bits & finding a Junior Speedcar metal badge).:redface:

    I have only confused you a little bit OOOPS. You are right, T.Q.'s were also known as Junior Speedcars, but when a rookie midget driver competed in the NSW junior speedcar championship, the word 'junior' referred to the driver and not the car. He, the driver, became the junior champion, i.e., the b-grade champion of NSW.:smart: Professor Leadfoot.
