Fresh from their recent Victorian title, the Victorian Late Model Racing Association heads to Swan Hill's 'Sonic Speedway' this weekend for another dose of speed that is sure to excite local race fans, with three South Australians joining the Victorians to really spice it up. Graham Forte, recent Victorian title runner up, from Barmah just a hop, skip & jump away from Swan Hill, leads the home state territorial defence with Justin Pearson who finished third at the state title, along with Michael Hetherington, Wayne Belk, Chevy Edwards & Danny Amato, Another win is not far away for a Victorian after Pearson’s early season win in South Australia, while Forte & Hetherington both put on impressive displays at Redline & Wahgunyah in recent meetings. Belk was a great story at Wahgunyah finishing inside the top five & he is looking to continue his early promise while Edwards continues his development in the Late Model division, add in Amato returning behind the wheel & the challenge is on. South Australian Steve Vaughan, who finished in the top five at the Victorian title; also returns to battle & this time he comes armed with the top ranked South Australian Mat Crimmins & Mount Gambier young gun Stuey Hill. Any one of these three are a potential race winner & it would not be a surprise to see the first placed trophy head back over the border, watch for Crimmins who has proven he will take to the highline to pass, this could be a trump card for him in turn three & four Saturday night. Action is going to be hot on & off the track with the temperature expected to reach 40 degrees. These big tracks are the best venues for the machines to go full noise on & you can count on the left front wheel hiking it around the turns. New fans to the Late Models & potential interested drivers are invited to the pit enclosure after the event to mingle with the competitors for photo opportunities & to discuss how to get involved.
