Easter is gearing up to be a huge affair at Hession’s Auto Parts Grafton Speedway, with the track hosting an action-packed Easter Dirty Weekend program over two massive nights of racing this Friday and Saturday.
With their previous meeting unfortunately being cancelled due to inclement weather, the Hession’s Auto Parts Grafton Speedway team is raring to open up their gates once more, with drivers from across seven different classes set to hit the track in search of victory.
Headlining the Easter extravaganza during Friday’s night’s competition will be the V8 Dirt Modifieds, who will no doubt turn out in droves to close their season at the Grafton venue in the best possible fashion during the Easter Spectator event.
Many eyes will be on Grafton local and track specialist Andrew Firth, who proved his dominance earlier in the season, taking out the Clarence Valley Spring Cup and the Stampede. However, he certainly won’t go unchallenged with the likes of Corbett brothers Chris and Dale amongst the field, the latter of which has also tasted victory at the track, winning the Christmas Cup.
Leading Sportsman driver Trevor Wiley (Qld) will also be in the mix, as will Phil McNamara and a host of other challengers from throughout New South Wales and Queensland.
In the RSA Street Stockers, Brock Armstrong is currently on the cusp of clinching the overall Hession’s Auto Parts Grafton Speedway track point score after what has been a pleasing 2018-19 season so far. Topping the point score would see Armstrong pocket a $1,000 prize for his troubles, meaning he’ll be leaving nothing in the tank over both nights of racing.
Armstrong will certainly be one of the favourites to take out the Stocksville trophy, while his rivals will be looking to hinder his chances.
Completing the support program on both nights of competition will be RSA Fender Benders, RSA Junior Sedans, Stock Rods and Demo Derby, the latter of which will include the Race to the Death Demo on Saturday night.
Track entry prices are as follows: family (two adults and two high school aged children) $65, adults $25, pensioners (age and TPI) $20, high school children (with card) $15, and children (under 12) FREE.
Gates open at 3 pm, with racing to commence at 6 pm.
Hession’s Auto Parts Grafton Speedway is located at the Grafton Showground on Prince Street in Grafton, NSW.
