Let’s talk late model racing

Brock and Chevy Edwards took on Rushworth Speedway – the 4th round of the Late Model Racing Victoria Season.


Round 4 at Rushworth Speedway

Despite hot and humid conditions the boys got straight down to business. Starting from mid pack in heat 1 Brock and Chevy did their best to fight their way through, placing 4th and 5th respectively.

Heat 2 didn’t go Brock’s way – an on track incident saw Brock come off second best and out for the rest of the night. A shame but hey, more time to eat jerky trackside right?!

The feature race of the night saw Chevy in 3rd place a few laps in. This was short lived as Chev spun out and was then sent to the rear of field. Well & truly fired up (what we love to see); Chev was on a mission to get back to the front. In true Jack Link’s style, Chev showed his wild side and had a crack at 2nd place but spun out again. Chev was then disqualified from the race as he’d caused two stoppages. Noooooo!!!! 


The unstoppable brothers!

Round 5 at Premier Speedway Warrnambool

Team Edwards had just one week to repair the damage to Brock’s car from round 4 – which of course they smashed it and both cars were set to go!

The points tallied up from the first two heats determined the boys starting positions in the 20 lap feature – Chevy starting from P4 while Brock was down the back of the bus in P12. Brock knew he had his work cut out for him to move up spots and he did a magnificent job in achieving that. He was passing cars left, right and centre and after a gallant effort, he managed to bring the V12 home in 6th position.

Chevy had just as much work ahead of him even though he was starting further up the front. He kept a cool head though and was able to make a move halfway through the race and gained that podium position crossing the line in 3rd place!

Chevy accepting his 3rd place win!

A round of racing wouldn’t be complete without beef jerky! The crowds were kept sustained with a tasty snack!

Happy campers!

Next stop – Firecracker 5000 Feature Event at Redline Raceway Ballarat – January 12th 2019.
