Super Rods and Street Stocks to headline Mid-Western Speedway on Sunday

This Sunday Mid-Western Speedway in Darlington will hold their second race meeting of the current Speedway season with two huge feature events to keep fans enthralled and on the edge of their seats. The annual Col Grist Memorial for Super Rods and the Hanno Memorial for Street Stocks are the two main events of the day with supports from Speedway Drivers Association Hot Rods, Standard Saloons, Daylesford Street Stocks, and Speedway Sedans Victoria Juniors.

Amongst the competition in the Super Rod Col Grist Memorial are members of the family and some of the strongest competitors in the class. Jamie May, Daniel Grist, Billy Grist, Jason Kavanagh, Neville Gange, Stan Marco Jnr, Jacob Pitcher, Grant Stansfield, and Dane Court included.

It is anybody’s guess as to who might win the race in honour of Col Grist.

Winning the event means a lot to many from the South West and those that raced against Brendan and miss his wonderful personality.
