The biggest of all Speedway weekends is on again this Saturday and Sunday at Alexandra

The annual ‘Foodworks One Hundred Lap Derby’ through the dog – leg is upon us once again at Alexandra Speedway this Saturday and Sunday on the Kings Birthday weekend from 1pm with around one hundred twenty competitors across five categories that will hit the track, whilst the Derby cars compete on both days.

The Derby race it’s self has attracted last years winner Shane O’Brien and multiple times winners Lennie Bonnici and Luke Fallon who have both won the event four times. They will be up against a crack line up of competitors from right around the state keen on securing the victory in a race many portray as ‘The Bathurst of Speedway’.

Luke Fallon as a local Alexandra man and club member leads Alexandra members that include Brendan Miller, Ricky Cornwall, Joel Andrews, Jack Brennan, Matt Ismail, Darren Forrest, Dennis Reid, David Forrest, Damien Miller, Ben Moon, Russell Smith, Jayden Bryant, Steven Kershaw, Matt Nelson, Dale Smith, Jackson Barneveld, Jamie Thomsen, Gareth Wilson, Josh Service, Lee Beach, Robert Edwards, Daniel Scott, Sonia Nelson, Steven Loader, David Donegan and Hank Orme into the big event with $2500 – up for the winning driver.

Whilst the Alexandra club supporters will be cheering on for a member victory there is no shortage of talented competitors from outside of the club in the field that have their eyes on the top prize.

Supporting events include the ‘Rusty Cars Downunder Standard Saloon Cup’ with Mark Miles the most dominant Dog Leg campaigner in the field. State champion Rhys Lansdown has entered as has former state champion Shane Stewart. Alexandra will be represented by Luke Collette and Cory Horter with Mitch Blencowe, Chris Miles, Andrew Miles, Kacey Ingram, Harry Cecil, and Brodie Ardley some of the competitors in the field that will be gunning for victory.

Speedway Sedans Australia Junior Sedan competitors will compete for the Victorian Short Circuit Championship as they do each season in the class. Bree Simpson, River Paterson, Steane Cosson, Blake Beach, Cruz Paterson, Kiarna Barton, Brad Marshall, Axel Robinson, Will Fallon and Maddy Beach will all fly the flag for the host club, with Simpson and River Paterson very strong competitors with a claim on a possible victory.

Street Stocks also compete in the ‘Aero Spec Engineering Street Stock Spectacular’ with Mick Dann, Morris Ahearn, Leigh Gooding, Linken Paterson, Matthew Brooks, Adrian Lawrence, Matt Nelson, and Troy Polley amongst some of the strong and entertaining racers in the line-up. Matt Nelson has been a front of the pack driver in Street Stocks often and as a club member a win in the Street Stocks is something he has a focus on.

Rounding out all the classes for the two days is the Victorian Speedway Council Junior 1200cc Sedans. They will compete in the “Fallon’s Bus Services Junior 1200cc Dog Leg Championship’ Alexandra will have Braidan Webster, Billy McBride, Blake Beach, Brody Barton, Dayne Murdoch, Zac Loader, Brad Marshall, Will Fallon, and Maddy Beach representing the club.
