Victorian Street Stock Series Headlines Nyora This Saturday Night
After a successful first round of the new Victorian Street Stock Series, round two takes place this Saturday night at the South Gippsland Bullring known as Nyora Raceway. The Nyora club now have some Nyora registered Street Stocks amongst their membership base and Eugene Bennett, Steve Hardie and Russell Hill are amongst the line-up looking to secure a strong result on home turf.
With the winner of the first round Lenny Bates, absent due to work commitments, runner up at the Wangaratta first round Jamie Lock now has all eyes on him as to being this weekends benchmark. Lock will travel in to town from Bendigo and will face competition such as Jayden Blomeley, Jason Duell who was third at Wangaratta makes the trip across from Mount Gambier, Shane Roycroft and his wife Felicity from the Goulburn Valley, Mick Dann and Andrew Jordan from Melbournes eastern suburbs, Jason Degoldi from Geelong, Shaun Henry from Ballarat, Warrick Howie from Victorias North East and the earlier mentioned Russell Hill who has won more times at Nyora in his career than the rest of the field combined.
There are some terrific race drivers in amongst this quality field. Degoldi had a cracking season last year where he kept on winning around the state, Blomeley had a breakout season where he started to pop up on podiums with results on a regular basis, and Dann is always a driver at the front end to keep an eye on, he has been on more national title podiums than anybody in the list.
Eugene Bennett, Greg Parks, Andrew Burgoyne all showed that they want to be included on lists of favouritism with their great showings in round one and consistency for these guys is key. Adrian Lawrence missed out at the first round as did the before mentioned Dann and Andrew Jordan, watch for these three to really get in amongst the action this weekend.
Current Series top Ten after round one, with drivers best four of five race nights counting. Lenny Bates 131 Jamie Lock 101 Jason Duell 99 Warrick Howie 91 Tim Hutchinson 87 Andrew Burgoyne 79 Shane Roycroft 78 Jayden Blomeley 75 Eugene Bennett 74 Brooke Ferguson 68 Andrew Jordan 68
