And the 2019 Victorian State Championship goes to….

….Jack Link’s very own Chevy Edwards!!!!

Chevy you sure know how to make Saturday nights memorable.

This 22 year old hard charger from Eildon in Victoria finally nailed his career first Late Model feature race win at the Victorian State championships and he found a great way to cap it all off. But more about that later, let’s talk racing!


After four years of racing the grunty 800 plus horsepower wedges, the appropriately named Chevy was understandably keen to break the drought.

He picked a rough and tumble situation to do it but in the process won the 2019 Victorian Late Model Championship at the enormous Wahgunyah Speedway.

Edwards tamed the 640m monster in chilly and bouncy conditions as track officials fought to overcome a 100mm downpour in the lead up to the weekend that rendered the track challenging to say the least.

It was a case of ‘cowboy up’ though for these two wild carnivore pilots though, as elder brother Brock also stepped up to the plate.

Chevy pulled off a come from behind win in the grueling 20-lap Championship A-Main to pick pocket victory from majority leader and Tasmanian superstar Callum Harper.

Congrats Chevy!

Brock Edwards nearly put two Jacks Link’s cars into the top three, narrowly missing out on a podium finish himself with a fourth place finish #stillproud

Both the Edwards boys were fast all night.

They recorded fifth and seventh in qualifying – Chevy with a 20.798 and Brock with a 20.915 and they were second and third respectively in their heat race.

As if there wasn’t enough excitement though Chevy topped off the perfect night with another bold attempt for victory.

He bent down on one knee with the trophy in one hand and a ring in the other as he successfully proposed to girlfriend Annika!

That’s the 2018/2019 season done and dusted for the Edwards Motorsport Team but plans are already underway for the 2019/2020 adventures and Jack Link’s will be right there beside them!

Brock and his leading lady in life :p
