    Hi Dirt Mod racers and fan's.

    In conjunction with Dirt Modifieds Australia Media Guru Ben Graham I have been asked to get Dirt Modifieds into Inside Speedway more often.

    This coming edition at the end of January already has a feature story on the GRAND IN the HAND feature at Nyora Raceway and I have an interview with a race driver in progress and have to have it to Geoff Crisp by Monday morning.

    But you know, Im in a predicament.

    I cant find the Top 3 History on Victorian Dirt Modified titles and Australian Dirt Modified titles going back the last 15 years anywhere.................

    Why wouldnt the history of a category be online for all to find?

    Anybody know where I ca find the information I seek without me needing to have half a dozen phone calls to get to the bottom of it.

    If somebody could post that history right here that would be awesome, in the meantime I have a couple more articles to go and write.

    Regards

    Deano

    to the best of my capabillities I sent all details several years ago to NASR , Speedway Racing News and Inside Speedway I am sure if this has been lost a copy would be available now through Shawn Mortimer, a very capable media man for the DMA.

    Thanks guys starting to get somewhere with this information.

    For planning of future stories it will come in handy.

    Obviously nobody from Victoria is reading the thread as for the story in question it was important to get 1,2 and 3 from Victoria for the past 15 seasons.

    Once we have compiled this information maybe the DMA will put it somehwere accessible to all , EG on their webiste under a tab called - Title History

    I know Trevor Perry won an Australian title back when they were using Ford bodies in the eighties..... I think it was around '85.

    Try contacting Murray Aitkin.... He has been involved with the Victorian club for many many years...... If he does not know then he will know someone that does.

    Good Luck.
