Super Rod Season Opener

The Super Rods took to Mortlake’s Mid-Western Speedway last Saturday for the first meeting of the season with a field of 9 cars in attendance. With the Super Rod’s welcoming two rookie drivers to the class on the night with Troy Hose a long time street stock driver and Zac Farrer a former Sprintcar racer.

 

In the first heat of the night it was Shaun Walsh who took an all the way win when he led home Rod Smith and Paul Verhoeven. Walsh was once again the victor in heat two when he crossed the line ahead of Neville Gange with Verhoeven home in third.  Gange took a green to checker win in the third heat leading home Walsh and Verhoeven.

 

The line-up for the final saw Walsh and Gange making up the front row followed by Verhoeven and Smith, then it was Farrer, Peter Duynhoven, Hose and Paul Singleton. Unfortunately the meeting was abandoned after lighting issues. Shaun Walsh was the highest point scorer and awarded the winner of Round 1 of the King of the Bullring series.
